Round 16: August 2025
Narrated by Iona.
Todd all the time. I'm happy for her but at the same time I'm kind of jealous - not because I'd want Todd for myself but because I'd really like to have a boyfriend who worships the ground I walk on. I had my first kiss with Jeremy Hayes last year - ok, so I kissed him but it totally still counts - but it's quite clear that he's not interested.
I know money's pretty tight because they took a huge mortgage to buy this house. I'm glad they did because I love the house so I try to help anyway I can. Sewing and pottery is really not my thing so I babysit Briony while they work in the studio.

- I was so scared that Malia would lose the baby. I really wanted her to do some sewing but after the cramps all she did was eat and sleep.
- I'd really want Greg and Malia to be able to buy a real shop where they could sell her sewing products and his pottery but I don't know if they'll ever be able to afford one. They are currently almost €60.000 in debt thanks to that huge mortgage. So in the meantime they sell their products online which means I let them make stuff and then sell it from their inventory.
- There's sort of a boy shortage in Iona's age group at the moment so she'll probably have to check out the townies if she wants to find a boyfriend. Although I think her parents are just glad there really aren't any available boys out there ;).
