Alvar Djurström, Family/Popularity
Kim Djurström, Knowledge
Tove Djurström, Knowledge/Family
Niclas Djurström, child
Sambo, the dog
It’s Tove’s last day of teenhood and her last chance to be accepted in university.
She ended last school week with F grades and has spent all weekend catching up on her homework. The night before school on Monday, she’s struggling with her last assignment. If she can raise her grades today she can apply for college
Niclas is a typical kid and loves jumping rope
His mother Kim wamts to become a witch, but the SimGodess doesn’t know how to do that and hopes the wish will go away
Back from school, Tove checks that she’s able to apply for uni. She is, but she will not have any scolarships. That’s not a problem for this family, and she is shipped off
Alvar drives her there, and we will see the rest of her week after we have finished the rest of the family’s week.
Back home, Alvar plays with Niclas.
This family is called Djurström. Djur means animal in Swedish, so j68 thinks it’s funny that they are so much into animals in this family
When they are not playing with the animals they spend time at the computer
Or flirt. Alvar wants another baby
Kim is more interested in skills though
Animals need some care
Alvar doesn’t give up his babymaking plans
Meanwhile, Niclas plays with the family guinea pig and a stray cat
Then he sells some lemonade to his parents
Alvar wants to sell some lemonade too. It’s always silly when adults want to sell lemonade, and even more so in this case, since the lemonade stand is placed in the hallway of the family’s apartment
When Kim has thrown up for the 15th time the same day, she starts to wonder if she’s pregnant and not only sick from the lemonade she had to drink
Niclas brings home Arne Ottomas with him from school, and they become friends
Alvar breaks the fourth wall when he learns fire fighting
Pregnancy confirmed and Kim has to drink more lemonade
Then she gets a wish in by cleaning the tub. Good job!
And another one reading a book
And yet another one cleaning the dog’s bed.
Niclas continues to play with the animals and sell lemonade from a stand inside the apartment.
And once in a while he manages to get his fun level so high that he can stand doing his homework
Alvar is a Family/Popularity man and lives for parties
And he loves pillow fights and pranks. Tove is here visiting from Uni.
Somewhere among the chaos, someone forgot to fill Sambo’s bowl, and now she’s starving, which means animal control shows up on the doorstep.
It doesn’t help that the bowl is filled now, anilmal control still takes Sambo, lectures Kim and even takes the guinea pig and the empty birdcage!
Right then the labour starts and the baby is on its way
It’s twins! A girl and a boy. They get the names Barbara after Kim’s mother and Ebbe after Kim’s father. (Alvar’s father is already represented by Niclas)
Alvar still likes to invite people over
And he still loves pillow fights and pranks. This time with Sara Fagerberg, neighbour.
Who put this record on repeat??
Then some romance. Alvar wants 10 kids. Forget it, man, you’ll have to be content with four.
I love when the kids want to do their homework. Not too often with Niclas, though, he always has a pile lying around.
Yay, a best friend! It’s an Ottomas as everyone can see. Arne, who visited earlier.
Alvar takes Niclas fishing, and it seems the son has more luck than the father.
Then – birthday! Niclas get a big boost from growing up well
He rolls Fortune, which is good I guess, since this family have the money to buy everything he’ll roll wants for.
The babies are still babies, and Alvar loves to snuggle them.
Wow, Kim wanted to invite someone over instead of only skilling
And Alvar serves dinner
And now – two new sims to satisfy
Niclas wants to go to Uni and wants the young enterepreneur grant so he accepts a job as orderly in the medical career.
Activities that satisfy the wishes of two sims are great!
But most of the time they’re out of sync
And we end this week with Kim, cramming in a couple of creativity points.
Alvar was very easy this week, being Family/Popularity in a house full of kids. Kim is still extremely hard, since she’s pure Knowledge. Niclas was pretty easy as a kid, but became harder when he became a teen and only wished for grants and uni. And toddlers are always hard.
It feels like it was a long week…
