Lottefors year 50-53, Groundhog Day

« previous entry | next entry »
Nov. 15th, 2008 | 03:49 pm


Last time at Lottefors, the kids were struggling with their bad grades. There was also playdating, making the house look like a daycare center. Simon and his wife Carita could hardly wait until one of the kids would leave for University, opening up a slot for a new baby.



“Simon! You really should be old enough to make it to the bathroom in time!” Inger Montell lectures her eldest son.




Well, Inger, it’s not that easy with this crowded house and with a roach flu in the house, is it?




It’s however the twins birthday. No more children in this family anymore! Sebastian goes first. He grows up very well.




He’s eating his birthday cake with a good appetite. He rolls a Pleasure aspiration. His turn-ons are perfume and underwear, turn-off is black hair. Too bad most of the girls in Mattsmyra have black hair then…




Now it’s Malva’s turn. The house is still crowded, the flu will spread! Nevertheless Malva is growing up well.




Malva is looking forward to a life of wealth. She turns on from underwear and red hair, and turns off from special hair.




Carita is apparently pregnant. Lotfullofsims kicked in! ETA June ’53.




Sebastian is trying to start his 50 dream dates with Lena Ceder, but no luck. That LTW, together with woohoo 20 sims, must be the worst of all! I’ve never even been close.
 



Five minutes later, we’ve got other problems. The pregnant Carita is setting the stove on fire. Luckily the family owns a fire detector.




Carita pops a second time early Wednesday morning




And Anna is leaving for University in her night gown, without any scholarships whatsoever. Her little brother Martin is seeing her off, and her big brother Simon looks generally happy.




Martin is arriving home on Wednesday with an A+ report card, it’s the first time in his life! Congratulations are in order!



Simon gets promoted to resident, but doesn’t seem amused.




Intermission for Groundhog Day
What happened, that didn't happen:




Thursday is Labour Day. Carita is not amused. (Upper left)

It’s a boy! He is not amused. His name is Common no 79 – Oscar. His birthday is the 12th of June ’53 and he was born at 6.42 AM. He inherited his father’s brown skin, his grandfather’s brown eyes and his mother’s brown hair (she’s a fake blond, remember?). Maybe we should have named him Bruno instead. (Upper middle)

Jesper Montell is very happy to become Farfar, and decides to retire, to be able to take care of Oscar as much as possible during the limited time he’s got left. He’s now 63. (Upper right)

Martin is not well-behaved, despite the fact that he’s got the highest possible grades. He’s stomping on dollhouses and flowers, and is throwing tantrums like a two-year-old. He would really need an aspiration boost, like going to private school or earn some money. He’s a very frustrated fortune sim at the moment. (Middle left)

The headmaster is arriving exactly on the decided time at 5 PM. Inger greets him. She never had the chance to go to private school herself, but certainly would have liked to, knowledge sim as she is. (Middle middle)

She’s showing off the newly renovated master bedroom. The headmaster really likes it. (Middle right)

Inger also serves her special salmon, perfectly baked. Carita is keeping everybody company in her night gown. (Lower left)

Another successful headmaster visit. All the kids remaining in the house, Malva, Sebastian and Martin were accepted in the private school. (Lower right)

-

Quitting without saving – by honest mistake – makes this Groundhog day.



Carita still doesn’t like labour day.



Popular name no 79 - My Montell is born on the 11th of June ’53 at 6.41 AM. She’s got blue eyes like her father Simon, medium dark skin like her grandmother Inger and brown hair like her mother Carita (the fake blond)



Jesper decides to retire to be able to take care of My full time. He rolled the wish to retire the moment she was born, and since his LTW isn’t career related, it fits perfectly.



The headmaster Wille Walter is invited, and gets pork chops for dinner. I wonder how often that happens. Like every day I would believe.



Still a success. Malva has chatted Mr Headmaster up, compensating for the lack of salmon.
Martin, Sebastian and Malva were all admitted to private school.


Lottefors after round 14:
Inger Montell
Jesper Montell
Simon Montell
Carita Montell
Martin Montell
Sebastian Montell
Malva Montell
My Montell

 

In memoriam:


Oscar Montell, the baby that was never born

Temporary malfunctioning brain - I had no sound in my game, thought I would restart it to see if it fixed itself.

During the process I changed my mind, and answered "No, I don't want to quit", but the question my computer asked me was "Do you want to save?"

The story was finished, with baby and private school and all, took me all day yesterday to replay it...

And Oscar was never born :'(

Well, that was a really hectic family even before Groundhog Day! Large families are a stress to play, at least until they grow so big that you kind of give up and just keep an eye on the face row from time to time to see if anyone turns yellow...

"My" is a name in Sweden? That is bound to cause some confusion when writing in English! In fact, I was already confused the first time I read through: "Isn't she going to tell us the name of the baby this time?"

Yes, it is a Swedish name, like in Mumintrollen, with the angry "Lilla My".
It's quite popular at the moment, used in the same families that uses for example Moa.
It does not have a long tradition here, it's mostly little girls named My, no old ladies. Yet. I guess they will grow up eventually :)

Poor Oscar, he looked so sweet too. At least the Headmaster's visit still went well, and I bet he appreciated yet another cooked meal.

In memoriam made me laugh! Poor Oscar. I've done that...it's interesting to see what's the same and what's different in a redo.

Poor Oscar who was never born. He was a cutie too. My is sweet too it looks like. At least the headmaster visit went well the second time too. That's a pretty busy family, but I'm sure Jesper will love helping with the kids.

A Groundhog day once in a while is ok, but it's a pity we never had an Oscar in this family

I am sorry that that happened. I have made silly mistakes like that before that I always feel like an idiot for after. At least you still got them into private school!

I've done the same thing you did before - accidentally not saving and quitting. I've also had the game crash occasionally after I've played and taken pictures, and had to play it over again. Groundhog Day is the perfect thing to call it! :) I'm sad you didn't get your Oscar. He was a cutie.
