Lot tour: The Ashton house

I picked away at this house for weeks, due to a lack of inspiration. It usually only takes me a few days, if that, to do a house. With this one, I haven't really done much landscaping and the balconies are still empty but I'm calling it done, at least for now. Some of you may have already seen this tour at N99.

January 2037 (Summer)

Now that she’s in her second trimester, Matilda’s morning sickness has passed and she was hoping to see out the rest of her pregnancy by not doing much of anything at all.

Round 33 ROS

I usually put these up a bit earlier but better late than never. Here are next round's ROS! No deaths this time but I can tell you that I do have one elder death coming up this round, after a long spell of seeming immortality for Sullivan residents. :(

As always, I will be adding links to the ROS as they happen. Please note that if you click these and you're not caught up yet, you will read spoilers. I'll leave it up to you to decide if that will bother you or not.

Round 32: November 2036 (Spring)
Rob Ashton is 35 and Patience is 34.
My first pregnancy was very difficult but this one has been like a dream in comparison, so I was hoping the actual birth would go the same way. It wasn't quite a dream, seeing it was every bit as painful as it was with Felicity, but thankfully, it didn’t last nearly as long!

Personality points that make sense

At N99 recently, I was talking about my method of assigning personality points to my Sims. Some found it very helpful for their own games, so I decided to take Starr's suggestion and make a dedicated post about it here. Maybe it's something you can use in your own games or maybe you just want to sit back and marvel about just how nerdy I can get!

Finding out they were expecting Baby #4 was quite a surprise for Gordon and a cause for stress for Lia. She will be 40 when this baby is born and has been worried about the effects her age might have on her child. Fortunately, her doctor has assured her that Baby Nott looks very healthy indeed!
