Anything goes

Narrated by Rebecca Kirby

So this year, I moved yet again. I left my tiny rental house behind and moved into a much bigger one. I'm all settled now but I feel like I never want to move again! This place is on campus though, so I know I'm going to have to at the end of this year.

You say it's your birthday, March 2030

For the last few weeks, I've been doing all my school work from home. My parents both wanted to make sure I was close to the hospital when the time came and preferably with family around.

The good in everyone

Round 29: January 2030

last update/next update

Rose and Joanna Draper are both 35 and Sylvia is 4.
(Abigail is 47, Amelia is 41 and Wade is 40)

Narrated by Rose Draper

Before Sylvia started pre-school, I thought it would be a good idea to talk to her about it, just so she knew what she'd be in for. I thought she'd be so excited but her reaction was a little underwhelming.

Narrated by Zelda Benton

Tate and I currently have Josie living back at home with us. We're holding the wedding here and Patience and Claudia both moved out of the house they shared together, so it just seemed to make sense.

Download: 3 ultrasound recolours

While I was shooting yesterday's birthday post, it started to annoy me that Camilla is carrying twins but the image on the ultrasound machine was of one baby. I tried Photoshopping it but that was a bit of a disaster. I realised it would be easier to just make a recolour. It was very easy, so I also did a couple more.

The three scans are, from left, 6 weeks with one baby, 8 weeks with twins and 20 weeks with twins. All three are clearly labelled and the mesh from Retail Sims is included.

You say it's your birthday, January 2030

Charlie and Camilla's twins are due in March and this is the first opportunity Charlie has had to actually see the babies. He's taken aback to say the least but has promised Camilla he will be there for the birth, nevertheless.

It's been nice lately that Aaron and I have both had Tuesdays off. Seeing he's still getting up so early every morning for work, we often don't get to go out at night so we've been able to have day time dates.
