I haven’t been able to play Sims as much recently as I’ve been back at work, which has meant less updates. So I thought I’d try and do a nice big update this time to make up for it 🙂
I honestly can’t tell if Viv is sad, or that’s just her face! I zoomed in because I wondered whether that was a pattern on the plate, or it’s syrup. I think it might be syrup. I thought for a second someone had been buying some new crockery.
When Viv got promoted, she got some new work clothes. Can’t say I’m a big fan. And yup, she’s still sad.
Emilia hadn’t seen Channing in a while, so I sent them on a date.
I realised it was late, and a school night and she still hadn’t done her homework. Since we had got a gold rated date, I got her to do her homework in the cafe. Channing didn’t seem to mind.
The next day after school Emilia invited some friends round. Pretty much invited all the teens she knows. Here we have Channing sat down, she’s talking to Fatima, who is Akira’s daughter. They met when they were toddlers, which is cute. And on the other sofa is Advaith Banerjee. I’m not sure he’s in the World, but they must have met at school.
Here’s Cooper Bheeda, sat next to Advaith. If you remember he’s the son of their old neighbours. Jayce had an affair with his Mum, so Emilia has a half brother because of it.
Since we’d accumulated a little more money, and Emilia is getting a little older. I decided her child bedroom was a little outdated. I decided to move her into the double room at the front of the house, which looked like this. Yuck, I know. Time for a little redecoration.
And here’s what I came up with;
Now the next day after doing Emilia’s room I ummed and ahhhed for a bit and decided to download a new bundle. So I got Parenthood, Bowling and the Vintage Glamour packs. I’ve definitely never owned this many expansions. Currently I’m missing Seasons, Vampires and a few stuff packs.
I absolutely love 1920’s Art Deco and Art Nouveau style, so I was really excited about the Vintage Glamour pack. I decided to redecorate Emilia’s room again with the new stuff.
Here’s what I came up with;
Today is Viv and Ray’s birthdays, so I thought I’d give Viv a little glam party makeover. I think she looks really classy.
Do you know when you have one of those Sim day’s where it takes ages just to try and get everyone to do what you want them to do? It was one of those day’s. I got Viv to throw a birthday party for her and Ray. Emilia was still hanging around in her nightclothes when guests were showing up. So I had to sort that out.
Eventually got Viv to blow out the candles on the cake.
I then put candles back on for Ray, because who know’s if we’ll get two cakes. Especially since there seems to be fire coming out of the stove. And Emilia has taken it upon herself to fix it. Looks kinda dangerous. I was half expecting her party clothes to go up in flames. That’s all I need! We’ve only just got over Shingo’s death, we don’t need another one. But she seems to be managing just fine.
After a bit of wrangling, and people wandering all over the place, I get Emilia to help Ray blow out his candles. I’m not sure where Viv has disappeared to.
And here he is. My first thought was that he looks a lot like Shingo, there’s a resemblance there for sure. He got the social butterfly aspiration and the cheerful trait.
And from the side, yup he looks a lot like Viv. I think there might be a Viv nose there. And what’s with the earrings?!
I decided to change a few of his outfits, but when I got to his everyday wear. Yeah you’re on your own with this one kid 😀
Jayce calls and invites Emilia out to the art gallery. When she arrives he disappears, so I get her to hang at the gallery for a while to see who she’ll meet. She has a seemingly pleasant conversation with Akito Yamaguchi, until she finds out he’s Evil.
Sod this. I decide to place the Bowling Alley, which for some reason is listed in the gallery as a bar. Which really confused me. And I send Channing and Emilia on a date there.
Emilia’s first go at bowling doesn’t go quite according to plan.
Channing thinks this is amusing, but he’s not feeling so great when this happens a few minutes later. That’s what you get for laughing Channing…..karma!
Does this happen to anyone else? Every time I send my Sims home, and I think it’s only when I send someone else with them, there’s always a random toddler outside the house who then just disappears.
I’ve moved Ray into Emilia’s old room and given it a little makeover for him. The new kids stuff from the Parenthood pack is really great. I do still find that I want some more interesting clutter though. I never seem to be able to find useful bits and pieces that I can put on top of my surfaces. What about bottles that look like skincare items, or pots. Something like a mug or a glass that’s just decoration rather than it being a food item. A pair of glasses, or a notebook left open with a pen.
Viv and Ray look really colour coordinated in his new room. This was unintentional 🙂
Oh, what’s going on here? Cheeky! 😉
