60 - Burb - Round 02

We rejoin the Burb family at family breakfast time.

Jennifer starts looking for work as John cleans the dishes away and Lucy gets ready for school.

Jennifer finds work at the local record store, on the condition she starts immediately.

Her first day and Jennifer already has an important work-related decision.

Which does not end well.

Jennifer takes out her frustrations on the dolls house they bought for Lucy.

But soon calms down and is back on the jobhunt within the hour.

She finds vacancies as a Social Worker, Dish Washer & Pickpocket

Amazingly her former employer has her old job advertised and Jennifer is rehired!

Author's Note; At this point my screen capture software fell over without warning nor indication and while appearing to capture screens as normal actually missed Jennifer being promoted then losing her job again after ANOTHER bad chance card.

Things then went from bad to worse as John slept all day when he was supposed to help Lucy catch up with her homework.

THEN Lucy ended up missing school when John slept in her bed and she refused to sleep anywhere else.

Poor Jennifer, who believed Lucy was at school, was then subjected to a lecture from the Social Worker who promptly marched upstairs, where Lucy had finally gone to sleep in her parents bed, and removed the child, still in her Pyjamas and took her away.

59 - Dreamer - Round 02

Darren has not found the adjustment to living alone easy.

And is therefore delighted when Cassandra Goth comes round to visit.

Watching Dirk grow up and move out has given Darren the confidence to finally tell Cassandra how he feels. After a quick shower he makes his move, asking Cassandra to move in with him.

And is delighted when she accepts!

The new couple celebrate in the traditional way...

A short but enjoyable round for Darren Dreamer.

58 - Butler - Round 02

We re-join Gavin Butler as he tucks into last nights soup for breakfast.


And says hello to Dongsool Perry.

Before heading to work. Where he is promoted!

Says hello to passers by Charlie Tang, Andrew Martin, Ratna Jones & Dominic Asland.

Evening falls and Charlie complains about being hungry however it seems Gavin is only interested in Ratna.

Sadly he and Ratna don't seem to hit it off.

The following morning a desire to play a little bass is fulfilled.

Then to celebrate his day off , one day into his job, he decides to head Downtown. To the local Pool and Spa.

Meeting Chloe Shikibu for the first time, Gavin is completely smitten.

Back at home, Gavin is immediately on the phone, inviting Chloe round.

Initial greetings are full of promise.

Before long Gavin has invited Chloe to move in!

Chloe brings $17'000 with her. However in the excitement has become late for work as a Studio Musician.

Gavin gladly offers her his car as the round ends.

57 - Asland - Round 2

Round 2 begins with "Business Inspector" Weston Clifford writing up his report on the Asland Home Business.

Dominic meanwhile gets to schmoozing Jessica Peterson and Lola Curious-Smith.

Oliver comes home from work.

Just in time to see the business reach Rank 1!

Sophitia is not feeling so good and has gone to lie down as the business hits Rank 2!

The source of Sophitia's queasiness soon becomes clear...

Dominic has chosen to increase his Local Reputation and Influence.

Seconds before the business hits Rank 3!

Amar Stratton seems rather smitten with a pregnant Sophitia.

A mixture of Joy and seemingly despair meets the news that Sophitia has gone into labour.

 It's Twins!!

The proud parents welcome Padruig & Laoghaire into the world.

And Dominic chooses to increase his Reputation.

Thanks in large part to the cash rewards which come with increasing business popularity, the Asland Home Business is operating in the black (green).
