We finally gave in and bought a new dog. Poppy's a labrador and she's already become a part of our family. The kids have loved spending time with her and I have to say I'm quite fond of her too.

Walk this way

Round 16: June 2025

Kurt Robinson is 69, Tina is 37, Frieda is 17, Tim is 4 and Michael is 1.
(Zach is 21 and Sara is 16.)

Narrated by Frieda.

Christian broke up with me last week. He's leaving to study abroad and he felt like there's no point in dragging out our relationship because he doesn't know when and if he's coming back. I know breaking up was the sensible thing to do but it still hurt. I never really expected us to stay together forever but he was my first boyfriend and this is my first break-up so it's going to take some time to get over it.

Round 16: May 2025
last update/next update

Deacon Burrows is 60, Stella Harris is 61, Minka is 7 and Nick is 5.
(Liv is 27, Dawn is 21, Finn is 20 and Shea is 5.)

Narrated by Deacon.

One of the best things I know nowadays is being greeted at the gate to our house by Minka when I come home from work. "Daddy, you're home!" she shouts and throws her arms around my neck. It took months before she started calling me Daddy so it's like winning the lottery every time I hear it.

Money for nothing, 2025

This is the first tax season with the new governor Denise Cooper. She's taking the opportunity to meet residents of each household in the Wellington District to make sure everyone can pay their taxes in the most convenient way possible. She doesn't want to run any family into debt because of poor payment planning.

Round 16: April 2025
last update/next update

Amabelle Harper is 70, Will is 40, Alexa is 33, Connor and Dane are 9 and Jena is 5.

Narrated by Alexa

We're all a bit worried about mom. She has been suffering from insomnia since dad passed away. Sometimes she goes to the swimming pool in the middle of the night, just floating on her back and looking at the stars. She says it calms her down enough so she can get a few hours of sleep.

Wellington Gazette, April 2025

by Brooke Greene

Denise Cooper took over the reigns as the Governor of Wellington from Deacon Burrows who served two full terms. It was an expected turn as Mrs Cooper has worked in the town administration for years now and is also a member of the City Council. Mr Burrows on the other hand announced his retirement from the town politics.

Let it be me

Round 16: April 2025
last update + wedding/next update

Brooke Greene is 33, Charlie is 32 and Ava is 1.

Narrated by Brooke.

We bought this house a little over a year ago and we just love it. Living in an apartment was fine but living in our own house is so much better. As an added bonus we live next door to Janie and DannyDixie and Tom also live in the same area.

Addicted to you

Round 16: March 2025

Dawn Whitfield is 21, Finn Harris is 20 and Shea is 5.

Narrated by Dawn.

Shea's been begging us to get a pet. She'd love a dog or a cat but I think at this point she'd settle for any kind of pet. The other day she managed to catch some butterflies into a jar and said they're her pets. She put the jar on the kitchen counter and just stared at it for minutes.

1 thing

Round 16: March 2025

(Max is 69, Regan is 61 and Dawn is 21.)

Narrated by Lilly

It's been a bit awkward living under the same roof with Josh since the break-up. Zach sometimes tries to be some sort of buffer between us but other times he's so distracted with his studies that he barely notices other people.

It was Zach's idea that I could become Eve's roommate when Kaitlyn moves out. It's sort of a win-win situation for everyone and I'm pretty excited getting out of the dorm and into the real world.

Wellington Gazette, February 2025

By Brooke Greene

Liv Harris, 27, has worked long and hard for a break in the music business and it seems that she's finally going to make it. She's become an internet phenomenom after she started posting her songs on SimTube. In January she released her debut EP consisting of four original songs and the title track Big Heart has slowly but surely climbed into the Top 5 on the Singles Chart. Now she's recording her debut album which is scheduled for release sometime in the Autumn.

I write sins not tragedies

Round 16: February 2025
last update/Eve's next update/Kaitlyn's next update

Kaitlyn Brennan and Eve Midlock are 24.
(Stephen is 24, Zach is 21 and Lilly is 20.)

Narrated by Eve.

Our apartment building was renovated a few months ago. We didn't have to move out because they mainly did work on the common area and I just love how it is now. There's a sauna, a small gym and a pool table.

Breathe in breathe out

Round 16: January 2025

Ross Cooper is 14.

I finally told Madelyn. I had to tell someone and it just felt natural it'd be Maddie. I dragged her to my room after school and we sat on the floor face to face like we always do. I had this whole speech prepared in my head but I got so nervous in the end that I just sort of blurted it out in two simple words.

"I'm gay!"

Heart of gold

Round 16: January 2025
last update/next update

Nyah Marlowe is 39, Thomas is 38, Skye is 13, Kyra and Jett are 11 and Lina is 9.
(Iona and Todd are 13.)

Narrated by Skye.

I should have known that mom would interrogate me about Todd after Mrs Lind saw us kissing when we were waiting for the bus after school. I told her that we've kissed a few times but we're not officially dating or anything. I know mom's pretty cool when it comes to boys but it's dad's reaction that I'm worried about.

It's not like I haven't been out with Todd before but it's always been a group of friends going bowling or just hanging out at Generation X. Todd's really nice and sometimes I'd like to hang out with just him.

We rule the school, January 2025

Round 16: January 2025

Principal Nyah Marlowe and teacher Phoebe Lind.

Narrated by Nyah Marlowe.

We're finally getting a new high school this year. The construction workers are currently tearing down the old one so we're stuck with this temporary lot with a couple of barracks working as class rooms and other necessary buildings. It's not ideal but it would have been impossible to tear down the old building and get a new one up and running during the summer holiday. At least this way we'll hopefully get to start the autumn semester in a brand new school building.

Are we there yet?

... Almost.

I have a super-duper awesome new computer and have finished installing TS2. Now I just need to put in a few finishing touches (empty templates, CEP and such) and I should be ready to play. So hang on in there, updates are coming! May the force be with you.
