Round 29 ROS

I'm putting these up a little bit early again. I'm all excited about starting to track my rounds by months though, so I wanted to get my play schedule mapped out!

Yard sale - let's get rid of some of this crap! - this is a new one that I added this round. I stole it from someone at N99. ;)
Errands - visit 6 community lots before the end of the day - I am currently formulating ideas and it might actually be more interesting that it sounds to me right now. Hopefully!
You're feeling creative. Take up a new hobby or start a new business: painting, music, writing, crafting, pet breeding, whatever strikes your fancy.
Death by car accident (satellite death), so sad :( - again! I'd say more but it'd probably be a spoiler, so you'll have to wait and see.
Woohoo scavenger hunt (every available object - closet, bed, hot tub, elevator, change/photo booth, car) - I say this every time but the first time I rolled this, it was for Abigail and Nick was the result. I've only rolled it for elders since then. Not this time though. ;)

You say it's your birthday, Spring 2028

Asha Lane was just about to head back to work after maternity leave when she got pregnant again! She and Luc will welcome a brother or sister for Ruby in May 2029 but until then, Asha has plenty of time to drum to her heart's content.

  • Brother or sister, but hopefully a brother! ;) The boy shortage is getting ridiculous.

(Adrienne is 21 and Malcolm is 18)

It's so quiet without Adrienne and Malcolm around. No stomping through the house every afternoon after school, no constant stream of teenage visitors coming in and out the door, no whining about homework, or dinner, or anything else.

Download: 13 blackboard recolours

Over the weekend, I made several recolours of H.Lin's blackboard mesh. I have a few blackboards in my game but this one is my favourite. It's up in every class room, in both my schools.

Download: Brownstone-style residential

Back at the beginning of this round, I moved Steve and Olivia into this awesome brownstone I downloaded. I started to decorate it but when I directed Olivia to put Ramona in the just-placed crib, she couldn't. There was a whole staircase missing and I couldn't find a place to fit one in.

So, they moved out and instead, they bought another house. They'll stay there now, as I've decorated it and they seem happy there. It's a good house. But I really loved how the brownstones looked in my hood, all lined up in my new terrain. So I decided to have a go at my own.

The exterior is definitely inspired by the original lot but my layout is much simpler and much more spacious.

This is a 3x1 lot, with four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and even a little backyard in the back. Plus a roof top garden, which is what I loved so much about the original house.

No surprises

Round 28: Autumn 2028
Narrated by Rebecca Kirby

A fire alarm is never what you want to wake up to. Ours goes off all the time but looking out the window the other morning, I could tell it was serious when I saw the ambulance and the fire truck.
