Students: Aaron Hayes, Frieda Robinson and Emily Midlock are 15, Sara Midlock is 14, Riley Cooper is 13 and Madelyn and Ross Cooper and Jeremy Hayes are 12.


Narrated by Phoebe Lind.

This semester's start couldn't have been worse. Ethan Hayes passed away just two weeks before school started and it really changed the whole school. Nyah immediately arranged a counsellor to stay at the school for the first month so that students could get some help in this crisis. Ethan was such an outgoing person and loved to joke around. I've never seen the students so quiet especially after summer.

We've been trying to spend even more time with the kids than usual since Ethan's death in August.It was such a shock for everyone but it's especially hard for the children to understand how a young person could die so suddenly.

Little dreams

Round 15: September 2023

Dawn Whitfield is 19, Finn Harris is 18 and Shea is 3.
(Liv is 25, Eve is 22, Zach is 19 and Lilly is 18.)


Narrated by Dawn Whitfield

Finn and I have been talking a lot about where we're going to live next year. Shea will turn 4 and start pre-school and we both want her to go to Allerdale Elementary instead of some other school. It'll be a long bus ride every day and one of us will have to take her there and back. Finn's parents suggested that we could move in with them but to me the idea of living with my in-laws isn't very appealing and Finn's not too thrilled about it either.

Blue jeans

Round 15: September 2023



Narrated by Josh Cooper

I've been trying to be patient ever since Lilly told me that she was ready to have sex. I wanted to make the move last semester but I didn't want to make her feel like I was pressuring her. I did enough of that when we were still in high school. She was waiting for me outside when I came home from class one night and said that we're going to Exmoor.

(Emily is 15.)


Narrated by Alexandra Hayes.

Having three teenagers in the house is sure way to drive any adult crazy. It feels like the boys are going through every emotion every day. Aaron and Ethan can be at each other's throats at any time.

Happy Birthday, August 2023

Malia and Greg Newman found out about Malia's pregnancy a couple of months ago. They're really excited about the baby but nobody is probably as excited as Greg's 11-year-old daughter Iona who can't wait to become a big sister for the second time within a few months.

Summer hiatus

I just wanted to leave a little note to say that Wellington is still alive! I'm on summer holiday right now but due to various RL things I haven't been able to fire up my game at all. My mom and I are leaving on a trip to the Finnish Lapland tomorrow morning but hopefully when we come back on Sunday I will finally get to play.

Kurt Robinson is 67, Tina is 35, Frieda is 15 and Tim is 2.
(Jack and Grace are 40.)


Narrated by Tina Robinson.

Frieda moved in to live with us last year and it hasn't gone as well as Kurt expected. He was thinking that his little girl is going to live with us but Frieda's not a little girl anymore. They mostly clash about school and her boyfriend. She's been getting quite poor grades lately and Kurt thinks it's all because of this boy.

(Zach is 19 and Josh and Lilly are 18.)

My parents warned me that moving in with Dawn and Shea might not be as easy as I expect it to be. In the beginning it all went really well. Dawn and Shea have their own daily routines and I am trying to become a part of that routine.

Zach Whitfield is 19, Josh Cooper and Lilly Fielding are 18.


Narrated by Lilly Fielding.

Living in the dorm isn't as awful as I expected. The other residents are alright and I actually get to study even in the cafeteria without being interrupted. It's nice because I don't want to stay in my room all the time.

Round 15: February 2023

Stella Harris is 59 and Deacon Burrows is 58.
(Liv is 25, Dawn is 19, Finn is 18 and Shea is 3.)


Narrated by Stella Harris.

I know that Liv and Finn were quite shocked at first about our plans to adopt a child but they've been really supportive. In a way it feels like we've gotten closer during the process.

I still can't believe we're getting two children. They're a sister and a brother, a 5-year-old girl called Mariya and a 3-year-old boy called Nikolai. They've been living in a foster home for the past few months and we've met them a few times. They're quite reserved but according to the social worker that's quite normal. It's our main goal now to get them to trust us and open up to us.

We moved into a bigger apartment a few weeks ago and money is pretty tight at the moment. Any spare money we have goes into our wedding budget so I'm trying to work on more articles and Charlie's working hard to get promoted.
