Letsbo year 71-74, Impossible Want

« previous entry | next entry »
Apr. 5th, 2010 | 10:34 am

Previously at Letsbo, Georg earned his plaque in Arts & Crafts. David earned his plaque in Music & Dance. He threw a couple of parties to pass time while he waited to go to Uni. Then he left. Allegra reaches her LTW of becoming a Criminal Mastermind. Georg and Allegra grew up very well to elders and Annika was visiting.



It’s a cold spring at Letsbo.

Allegra is working towards her Knowledge IW, since she’s too old to go for her second LTW which is to become a City Planner.



Then the spring comes for real, and she’s tending to the very needy garden.



In the evening when Georg arrives home from work, he’s throwing an anniversary party, which gives him his second LTW. Sadly, it renders no points for j68, but what can you do? Georg is happy anyway, and that’s what counts.



Georg is our first Mattsmyra baby, along with Thea (Mattsson) Bardh. He's the son of CAS elder Hans Lind and his townie wife Melissa (Fancy). He´s married to his college sweetheart Allegra (Gast) and they have daughter Annika of Öljung (she lives with Thea's son Simon), and David in Uni.

 

David is at home visiting for the occasion.
The conversation is flowing freely and it becomes a good party. Georg looks good in his formal wear.



Allegra, still in her formals, maxes her charisma skill.



Then she’s keeping in touch with her friends, and Georg takes a dip in the hot tub. Two permaplat elders are not incredibly exciting...



Allegra maxes her Cleaning skill, and thereby completes the Knowledge IW. 3p!



And while Allegra is at work that night, Georg earns his silver badge in sewing.


Letsbo after round 20:
Georg Lind
Allegra Lind

It may not make for exciting stories, but it is just so practical to have sims you can plop down by the bookshelf and leave for a day! You could have ten Knowledge sims for the work that goes into one Pleasure or Romance sim.

These updates with elderly parents waiting for the heir to come home makes me a little sad. They should have a life of their own. It sometimes makes me wish I had Bon Voyage installed.

I have Bon Voyage and my elders are still skilling. ^_^
To be honest, I did not find vacations compelling, and they seemed too detached from the community focus of Micropolis. Perhaps they lend themselves better to family-oriented updates.

I thought Allegra was the countess in the one picture of her at the anniversary party, lol. The round may not have been that exciting, but the Lind's have the most interestingly decorated house in the hood that I can tell from the pictures!

Letsbo is quite colourfully (new word?) decorated, and it has the party garage with brick walls. I'm bad with house tours, maybe I should do a section on that? Or not, I suck in decorating :)

Ah, they have a life. They seem to enjoy their slower pace now waiting for their boy to come home. It's nice to see elders who are comfortable with their age and life and just are enjoying doing what they want to do. :D

Well, I guess I should be happy that there's not drama in every house :)

Even though it may not be the most exciting, it is nice to see the perma-plat elders enjoying the fruits of their labor during the last stretch of their life. From what I can tell, their house is VERY colorful. :)

It is indeed a colourful house. It has happened by accident in a way, but I have noted that I adopt a different style for different houses, hardly without noticing myself!
