Narrated by Jonny.
I know it happened a long time ago but I still get so angry when I think back to when we were burgled. I still don't know why we were a target, it wasn't like we had any money. We still don't have much money but the same can be said for everyone in Autumn Shore. We all took the houses on knowing they were so cheap because there was still so much work to be done on them. Everything is starting to come together though.
When Allie graduated college she decided to get her own place so she's renting a small one bedroom house. With my eldest now standing on her own two feet it got me thinking that I needed to have a chat with the other two about growing up and being generally responsible in life. They seemed to listen but you know what teenagers are like... Gary is due to head off to college soon so I hope he behaves himself.
Louisa is still very much my baby, i'm not sure what I make of her dating Sean Brockman. He seems like a nice lad. I think i'll have a chat with him and subtly let him know that if he breaks my daughter's heart, i'll break his legs.
I came home from work the other day with flu. Louisa told me the bath was spouting water again, well, I left Gary to attempt and fix it himself. It would be good practice for when he left for college. All I could hear coming from the bathroom was banging and a lot of cursing...
The good news in our house is that Sooty and Jess had two puppies, Fudge and Luna. I'm not sure if they'll both be staying with us for much longer. We're still trying to get the house sorted and four dogs are expensive to keep! Allie came round to visit and fell in love with them so she's currently begging her landlord to let her have a pet in the house!
Notes: I think my new writing style is working out a lot better than the old one! It's a little more interesting to read and a lot more easier to write! I had intended to introduce a whole new calendar system but shortly after I started playing I realised that it just wasn't going to work so i've reverted back to my old 'maxis' system. It works for me so i'm happy for now! Still a lot of new stuff coming, I plan to build all the community lots so stay tuned for that. I'm going to attempt to build a school and have Ramona run it. I'm not sure if the school will work or not but I can only give it a try! All being well, you'll see a fully functional school in Ramona's update. I would have had this update posted sooner but I sent my computer off to the local computer whizz and he stripped it down and told me what I would need to buy for it to be able to run sims 3. So, i've ordered some extra memory and a bigger(?) cpu that should arrive early-mid next week. I've only got the sims 3 base game and 2 expansion packs so fingers crossed the newly updated computer will be able to run it and then you'll have yet another blog to read! Back to this update, Gary is due to go to college at the end of round 5 with Declan and Joanne.
