Norrbo year 85-87, Me and Dad

« previous entry | next entry »

Previously at Norrbo, Åsa gave birth to Frida, who's father is Gunnar Flyckt, a college student. Åsa started a career in Law but would rather be a journalist. Frida grew up to toddler with Music&Dance hobby. 



Cast:
Åsa Benett, 39, Grilled Cheese
Frida Benett, 5

Story:


Åsa is still working in the Legal career as a Personal Injury Lawyer, but she doesn’t like it. She would rather start a journalist career, just if there were an opening.



She enjoys her daughter Frida very much, though and loves to come home to her. It’s Frida’s birthday today and she will become a big girl!



Party, party!



Frida grows up very well, but into too summerlike clothes. Unfortunately her mother doesn’t have the means to buy her new clothes, and hardly her father either, since he’s in college.



Before the party is over for Frida, she says goodnight to her Mormor Maja and the rest of her guests.



Frida is an only child, with her red hair inherited from her grandfather Daniel. Daniel had a relationship with Frida’s grandmother Maja. They were never married but had their daughter Åsa out of wedlock. Åsa didn’t marry Frida’s father either, at least not so far, so she’s continues the single mother tradition.



In the end it’s a great party, and Frida falls asleep happy that night.



After the party a couple of Åsa’s friends stay, and she tries to find a journalist job, supported at least by Eva. There are no openings so Åsa’ll have to go to the law office yet another day.



Frida is happy that her first day of school is cancelled due to heavy snow. Åsa tries to get Gunnar to come and take care of her while she works.



Gunnar comes, but Åsa still refuses to go to work when the pool car arrives. She doesn’t have any vacation days, but ok, so be it!



So she calls in sick (she actually IS sick) and spends the day trying to raise her fun level with the help of Gunnar.



It’s the last day of winter and Frida and Gunnar seizes the opportunity to have a snowball fight for the last time this decade.



Then lunch is served, and it feels like an ordinary family, joined by their gardener.



The next day Åsa gets promoted to Family Law attorney, despite the fact that she doesn’t like her job.



Frida brings Jacob Burlin with her home, but he’s not in to playing red hands at all.



She has to play with her mother instead.



And then she learns to study, and the normal house-with-schoolchildren boredom affects us all…


Norrbo after round 23:
Åsa Benett
Frida Benett

Wise decision to not go to work... Unless you have the (baby)Sitter hack, guests (including fathers) will run off the moment you go to work, leaving the children to the tender mercy of the social worker. And I don't think the Sitter hack is updated for the last few expansions. -_- You could still boolprop it of course.

I thought it might work that Åsa would go to work if there was another adult in the house, and since Frida is a child she could keep the guest, but apparently it doesn't work that way :)

Ah, poor Asa, trapped in a job she hates. Hopefully next round something will open up for her in Journalism. Looks like Frida is growing up just fine despite the lean times in the household. Do you plan to have Asa and Gunnar get together more permanently in the future?

That I wondered myself - about Gunnar, I mean. He can't stay in college - for ever immortal and young - now when he has a daughter, can he?

Åsa has no wishes for Gunnar to move in, I'm afraid. At some point Frida might ask more for her father, we'll see. OR, if nothing else happens, he will grow up to elder when Åsa does. It WOULD be awkward if Frida went to college and were the same age as her father! :)

We'll see about Gunnar, at least I will grow him up to elder when Åsa is that age. Maybe they'll get married then, if Åsa can think about anything apart from grilled Cheese at some time :)

I like this little family. Asa and Frida seem like they are pretty close. :)

They are very close. I think of my childhood friend who grew up with a single mother, they were always very close, too!

Poor Asa, no job that she loves for her...hopefully soon. I know what it's like to be stuck in a job you hate for a long time. Frida is a cute little girl. I'm glad she knows her father and she is close with her mom.

It actually feels realistic that someone is wishing for another job than the one they have. And Frida is cute, I just wish she was blond - he blondies are running scarce in Mattsmyra, and that's not really Swedish :)

Frida is such a cute little girl, I love that she got the red hair too! I wish Apartment Life would have enabled babysitters for households and not just apartments... I wonder if there is a fix for that so Gunnar could have watched Frida.

It wouldn't have helped, since I don't have apartment life. When i decided I wanted it, it's impossible to buy :/
