Mattsgården - Let the story begin



Mattsgården, Monday-Friday

Six months after his mother Carina’s death, Tobias Mattsson of Mattsgården feels that the time has come to do something about life. He’s discussing the matter with his father Dan and his twin sister Ida. ”We’ve got 15 simoleans left and this house is hardly half finished. The young ones deserve better than this. We have to make an effort together! Me and Ida could take part time jobs after school, but you’ll have to help out too!”

 
”You’re right, the days of self pity are over”, Dan replies. ”Your mother would never have let matters dwindle this far had she lived. But I do need to get a night job, I cannot leave Stella and Loke in someone elses custody. But I AM going to get a job, to bring some cash into the house again.” ”Did you hear that, Daniel?!” Ida exclaims, ”Maybe we can get a TV-set!” ”Yey! High five!”


Still, the dream of the TV-set is far far away. Virtually everything in the house is missing. Carpets ans wallpaper for example. And lamps and chairs. Dan borrowed a book from a friend at work, he started a career as a guard, the only night job available.

Ida started a military career as  a paintball coordinator and Tobias as an office clerk. Problem is they have a hard time keeping up with the studies in parallel, why the risk is that this will be a short-lived arrangement.

Poor or not, Loke has his first birthday and needs celebrating of course. Tobias holds his little brother to let him watch the pretty candles.

Believe it or not, but this is a different kid, Loke’s twin sister Stella. Of she gets a cake of her own!

Now when the youngest children are going to school too, Dan could have a day job. But to be promoted from guard he needs some body points, and there is no room in the budget for a gym card, and no such benefits at his company. He could apply for another job and start his desired political career, but he doesn’t have the energy for that, all effort goes to keeping the family somewhat on their feet.

On Friday both Ida and Tobias get fired from their respective jobs, due to their poor grades. Ouch, -2p for jungfrun68. 
Well, the Mattsson family might be poor moneywise, but their social life is rich. On Friday night the yard is full of potential friends and acquaintances. On the other hand, the front wall is still unpainted, and home work and bills are piling up on the lawn.

Myren - Monday to Friday

 
Myren, Monday-Friday
Berit Myhr got pregnant with her daughter Lena at an early age. The father was never a part of her life, he came to Mattsmyra with a navy visit from abroad, and disappeared as quickly. Today she hardly remembers his name, and even less what he looked like. 

Her grandson Evert was conceived in a similar fashion. Lena was in London for a holiday trip, and realized when she returned home that she was pregnant. The phone call to the becoming father was as expensive as it was futile. Evert never met his father, and neither him nor Lena are missing him the slightest. The small family is living together in harmony, and will probably continue in that fashion, until Evert finds someone to share his life with.


Berit started to spend time with Hugo Berg recently, and finds him being a fantastic man. He’s handsome, easy to talk to, and the connection between the two is so strong that it’s almost electrical. Could it be possible that Berit will experience passion another time in her life?


Evert is a young man with a sense for business. He wants to be an entrepreneur. He wants to start small and has set up a small design shop at home. Later on he’ll expand into arts too.
 
Unfortunately there’s an incident already the first evening, when someone is kicking the flamingo’s over. Grandma’s friend Hugo is there to comfort Evert. ”You’ve got the right attitude to succeed in this business, boy. Don’t let a single backlash prevent you from living your dream!” ”Thank you Mr Berg, I’ll remember that”.

Berit puts in her big charms on Hugo, it seems to be working fine.


And in the meantime Lena got a very good connection with Dan Mattsson. Veeery good connection… 


Look at that! Berit and Hugo really found each other.


At work Berit is less successful. She gets fired for not taking over the kitchen when the food critic arrives. Since that was due to a chance card, jungfrun68 won’t loose any points, yihoo!
