Happy Birthday, Autumn 2020

Doctor Grace Cooper has a few busy months ahead of her. There's a real baby boom sweeping across Wellington and Grace is working as a full-time obstetrician at the moment. Patsy Greene has come for an ultrasound and Grace is happy to tell her and Camryn that their twins are growing well and there shouldn't be any problems ahead.

So many friends

Round 13: Summer 2020
last update/next update

Tom Patterson is 27 and Dixie Greene is 26.
(Bobbie and Alexander are 69, Toby and Brooke are 28, Charlie is 26 and Erin is 25.)

Narrated by Dixie Greene.

Tom and I are trying to think of ways to make more money. We like our house but we want to get a bigger one. It doesn't feel so bad in the summer when we can spend time outside but it's hard to have guests over when there's barely room for the two of us. I even did lottery one week and won. But it was only €160 which isn't even half of my one day's salary so it didn't help a lot.

Round 13: Summer 2020
last update/next update

Rianna Midlock is 50, Anthony is 46, Emily is 12, Sara is 11 and Jesse is 7.
(Eve is 19.)

Narrated by Anthony Midlock.

I've been working all summer so Rianna spends the days with the kids. We can't afford to travel anywhere so she usually takes them to the park. Emily's all grown-up now, at least that's what she thinks, and she says she's too old to play in the park but she goes there anyway.

Happy Birthday, Summer 2020

Mia Greene is really excited that she's going to be a big sister in the Winter. She's even more excited when Patsy, or Mama as Mia calls her, tells her that there are two new babies on the way!
