Make you feel my love

Round 14: Spring 2022
last update/next update

Toby Parker is 30, Erin Fielding is 27 and Iona is 10.
(Nyah is 36, Alexa is 30, Niall is 27 and Liv is 24.)

Narrated by Erin Fielding.

Toby moved in with me and Iona about a year ago and it's been going really great. It was a bit strange at first because I had gotten so used to living alone with Iona but I wouldn't have it any other way now. Iona's excited to have her favorite chess partner living with us all the time.

She's become such a big girl. I rarely have to supervise her homework, she usually does most of it before I even come home from work. I hope she continues to be that way when she starts high school in a couple of years.

I'm already horrified at the thought of my little girl going to high school. I feel like she's still a baby but she's not. She still likes to hear a bedtime story every now and then but not as often as she used to. And she's always on the phone with one of her friends.

I hadn't seen Liv for weeks because our schedules never seem to match. I invited her over for dinner to hear what's going on in her life. She seemed pretty happy on the phone and when she came to our apartment I understood why.

She brought Niall with her. She told me that they got officially back together a few weeks ago although they've been seeing each other on and off since last autumn. I don't understand how she could take him back but I just bit my lip and didn't say anything. Toby and Niall are friends but Toby said he didn't know anything about them either.

As much as I'd like to hate Niall I have to admit that he's fun. And he genuinely seems to care about Liv. I just hope he treats her better this time.

We talked about the upcoming bachelorette and bachelor parties. My friends are taking me to Merry-Go-Round and Toby's party will be held at The Four Leaf Clover.

"I'd better not hear there have been strippers in that party" Liv said to Niall and gave him a knowing look. He just grinned and said that they're just gonna shoot some pool and have a couple of beers.

Iona went to a sleepover at Mom and dad's so that we could have our parties on the same night. Malia couldn't make it and Lilly isn't allowed in the night club yet so it was me, Liv, Nyah and Alexa.

We started off by having dinner and some champagne. Liv had worried that it would be a boring party with two married women in our gang but I had fun from the beginning to the end.

After finishing our dinner we went to the 3rd floor bar. I wasn't going to get drunk but the girls kept ordering a new drink as soon as I had finished one.

I haven't been out partying for a long time so it was really nice to unwind and have fun with my friends.

We went out to the balcony to get some fresh air and so that Liv could smoke. Alexa asked if Toby and I would start a family right after the wedding but I didn't have an answer. We actually haven't talked about it yet. We decided that we would concentrate on the wedding and talk about baby stuff afterwards. We both want kids but we need to move into a bigger apartment before we can even start planning an addition to our family.

We spent the rest of the night on the dance floor. It was almost dawn when I got back home.

I was still quite tipsy and feeling very amorous so it was nice to see that Toby was already home. I can't wait for us to get married.

  • Title reference: Make you feel my love by Adele.
  • I haven't made any plans about the wedding yet! I haven't even decided on the venue yet but I have a few updates before the wedding so I have some time to decide what to do.
  • Erin, Toby and Iona will move to a bigger apartment as soon as I build one. Their current apartment is quite small and also I think the lot has become buggy. I wonder if apartment lots get buggy after a while because I've been having problems with all my apartments lately. I had several crashes during this session but I rarely have crashes on residential lots anymore.
  • Liv and Niall got back together all by themselves. They both live in the same building with Brooke and Charlie and I saw them making out when I was playing B & C. I thought that since they want to be together then who am I to stop them?! Their reunion just didn't fit into any previous updates so I decided to "announce" it now.


  1. I think apartment lots get buggy after a while as well, I don't know why though. I can't wait to see the wedding, I bet it will be nice.

  2. Oh my gosh, Iona is 10?!?! That's crazy!

    Hmmm, I have the same reservations about Niall and Liv getting back together than Erin has! I hope he's turned over a new leaf.

    Loved the bachelorette party! I hope Toby was a good boy at his bachelor's!

    I do think apartment lots can get buggy after a while. :\ I should really keep decorated versions of mine in my bin, so I don't have to worry about losing them.

  3. Apple Valley, that's what I thought about the apartment lots. I've been planning to build new ones anyway so this one will get bulldozed soon.

    I hope the wedding will be nice ;)

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Carla, I just realised that this was Iona's last family update as a child! Unbelievable!

    I wouldn't have let Liv and Niall get back together but since they did all that autonomously I thought I'd give him one more chance.

    I've never done a bachelorette party so I thought it would be fun. I'm sure Toby was good, even with Niall as part of the party, lol.

    That's a good idea to keep decorated versions in the bin, I'll start doing that with new apartments.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  4. I can't believe Iona is 10 too. Where does the time go?

    I'm happy for Erin and can't wait to see their wedding.

    Sorry about the buggy lots. Hopefully you can have the problem solved ASAP.

  5. Choco, it's really weird to think that soon Erin will have a teenaged daughter and she's not even 30 yet! Kids grow up so fast *sniff* ;)

    I'm happy for Erin too. Life is looking really good for her right now.

    It seems that the crashing is mostly because of the apartment lots. I played a residential lot yesterday and didn't have any problems.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  6. When I saw the part about Iona starting high school soon, I did a double take. Wow. The time really does slip away.

    I'm glad Erin's finally getting a decent break, and with such a good guy. I hope for all the best for them. Can't wait for the wedding!


  7. Fini, oh I know. Even with the slow speed I'm playing it feels like my sim babies grow up too fast!

    I'm so glad things are going so great for Erin. I can't wait for the wedding either.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  8. It took me long to finally comment and I sorry for that!

    Anyway, I can't believe Iona is 10 already!! They really do grow up fast!

    I understand Erin about Liv and Niall getting back together, but it's good she bit her lip during diner.
    I'm hoping he treats LIve better this time around.

    The bacheloretty party looked like a lot of fun!

    About the appartments, I do think they become buggy at some point. I have had several of them become buggy over time, and I really hate it!

  9. Tanja, oh don't worry. I always read the comments no matter how long ago the update was posted. I'm still reading the beginning of Simsville so I haven't even commented in your blog yet!

    Erin has her reservations about Niall but she thought it would be best to keep her mouth shut. Liv seems happy and that's the most important thing for Erin.

    I had fun playing the bachelorette party. I've never done anything like that before but I think I might do them occasionally with future weddings.

    It's very annoying with the apartments becoming buggy. I'm not so bothered with this one because I planned to bulldoze it anyway soon but I don't have copies of the other buildings that I use so once they get buggy I'm gonna need a whole bunch of new buildings.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  10. I can't believe Iona's going to be a teenager either! I can't wait see her as a teen, though.

    I hope Liv is careful with Niall. Sometimes the heart wants what it wants and it's hard to deny it!

    Great idea to have a bachelor/ette party. I have a few sims who might have them but I need to redo some of my clubs first. Can't wait for their wedding!
