Svedja year 64-67, No Snowday!

« previous entry | next entry »
Nov. 2nd, 2009 | 08:46 pm

Previously at Svedja we were actually Downtown. Anna met a new friend named Anna, and tried to relax properly through her pregnancy. She succeeded and gave birth to natural twins Oscar and Wilhelm. Allan was an exceptional father and did most of the work with the twins. When the boys grew up to toddlers, the family decided to move from Downtown to Mattsmyra.



The Törnblad family has just arrived to their newly bought house Svedja (scorched area). Stella Mattsson lives here before.

 

They have no furniture whatsoever. I wish there was a family catalogue in Sims 2, where all the furniture went when moving the family.Anna is sick with the flu, but inherites some money from her father Jesper to help with buying appliances.



While the welcome wagon waits outside in vain, Anna is coughing, but still manages to potty train her boys, Wilhelm and Oscar.



Anna goes back to work now when the boys are a bit older, and they are getting taken care of by the somewhat competent nanny Kim Lawson. She at least changes and feeds them.



Allan, who is a Knowledge sim, wanted to learn how to cook Comfort soup. He of course doesn’t have that as an option in his menues. So, I let Anna start the cooking, and then directed her to do something else, while Allan could finish the cooking. And now everyone is happy. And healthy.



Just in time too, because it’s time for the twins’ birthday



And here they are, all grown up and well-behaved, doing their first homework together.



It has been snowing and snowing for days on end. The snow cover is now knee deep, but do these boys get a snow day? No way! You would imagine the lived in a totally different Simiverse than their cousins of Rotemo.
They bring Aron Wern with them home from school, but are not really making friends with him. They should be perfect in age, but what do you know?



Their parents are friendly as ever, though, working hard now to make more brothers or sisters for Oscar and Wilhelm to play with instead.

 

Svedja after round 18:
Anna Törnblad
Allan Törnblad
Oscar Törnblad
Wilhelm Törnblad (whose personal page is now updated too)

Aha! It is like Simerica then. This font I'm typing in is too light to read, so my apologies if I make no sense. Good tip about the comfort soup! I'll have to try that next time a non-family sim rolls the want.

I guess Simerica is different in different places, too :)
I'm very proud of myself to find a way to get my Knowledge sims to learn cook the comfort soup

I just throw furniture in their personal inventories if they are selling the house.

And I never understood the snow days either.

Too much work to put all the lamps a stuff in inventory. I would most certainly forget something. The family catalog is one of the things i like the most with sims 3. And the fact that the kids do their homework without being told!

There is Monique's "Auto do homework" mod,

although I personally prefer to have an adult help with homework, since they don't lose much fun while kids who do it along can go in the red pretty fast. On the other hand, driving down the fun bar is OK if you have fun skilling tools in the house.

That's very cute that the boys match! I usually toss any big furniture in their inventories too when they move, it is a hassle though. Or at least sell it so they take the simoleans with them. Very creative with the comfort soup!

Nice job on the comfort soup....I'm not sure I would have thought of that. The twins are cute, all matching and everything.

The boys are pretty cute. It would be nice if they got a blonde haired sibling.

It's fun to have a family who are not looking like everyone else, but I actually don't like the blond hair with dark skin... Anna looks good in it though!

I love your comfort soup solution! I always wondered why sims without the Family aspiration got that want. I like this family, and I'm glad Anna got well. Sick sims always scare me because when I first had the base game I had one of my favorites just drop dead when he got out of bed to cough.

I find that sims get the want to learn to cook the soup when they get to taste it. I guess it's a good soup :)
I was afraid of the flu too, before, but nowadays it doesn't seem too bad. Combined with hot summer weather it can be, though...
