Stoney Falls Reception Centre

This is the lot opposite Stoney Falls and I thought it would be the perfect place for a wedding. It's only a very short sim walk over to the falls, since the lots are facing each other, and I think it will hopefully make for a great background for wedding shots.

Round 2 Winter, August 2101
Seymour 1 Family

Joshua is 22 (Natasha Mitchell is 22)

Narrated by Joshua Seymour.

Living on your own is a lot different than when I shared with two roomies. If anything breaks you have to fix it yourself or at least pay someone to fix it. Luckily I've fixed broken faucets before and this one just needed another washer replaced.

Lot Tour - Seymour Family

Seymour (1) Residence - 9 Sung Song Avenue, Greenland Bay

So this is the lot that Josh is renting by himself. It's right opposite the beach which is perfect for Josh since that is one of his true loves. I created this lot a long time ago, back in my TSR days. It was a bit girly so I had to alter some of the inside but I really like the layout and it's not too big or too small so I thought it was perfect for Josh.

It's probably a bit luxurious for him since he is only 22 but I think it suits his style and I really wasn't up for building something new just for him. lol Anyway he might end up having someone move in further down the track. A girl maybe? ;) We'll see. It's a two bed/bathroom and would comfortably suit two possibly three sims.

Narrated by Eliza Seymour.

Night time has become pretty chaotic lately. Will has been helping me prep and cook dinner now that we have three extra mouths to feed. We eat pretty healthy, always have. I like to have a salad with dinner so I make that and then Will tends to the mains which is normally some kind of meat or fish.

Lot Tour - Seymour Family

Seymour Residence - 350 Oakgrove Road, Greenland Bay

And here it is the house of my all time favorite sim family! :)  This house was designed and created by me and looks a bit different compared to the last time I posted a tour of it. Unfortunately I lost some of the cc I was using and because SV is a big laggy anyway this time around I'm trying hard to use the least amount of cc possible.

As you can see though it is three stories to make room for all the kids they were going to have. lol Actually it only has three bedrooms and before the triplets arrived there was two kids in one room and a teenager living on the third floor. It has three bathrooms though! lol

Seymour Family


Will, Eliza, Pippa and triplets (not identical) Emma, Lucy and Sarah Seymour

The Seymour family are very family orientated and have been through many up's and down's over the years. The up's definitely out way the down's though!

Greenland Bay is Will's home town, he grew up here but when his father became lost at sea he set sail on his fathers boat, the Sealuxe, to search for him. Will was just a teenager and he searched for his father for many years but never found him. One day he docked at a small town called Sunset Valley and this is where he met Eliza. Sparks flew right from the moment they met and they ended up getting married and settling down and starting a family in Sunset Valley. Only after a tragic house fire did they move back to Greenland Bay and this is when they decided to extend their family-to six children!

Will works as a toddler sports coach and a personal trainer when he is not coaching toddlers, Eliza is currently a stay at home mum to triplets. Pippa is in high school and loves helping with the triplets and playing big sister to them. Charlotte and Joshua are their eldest children who have since moved out of home.

Edwards family home - 18 Maywood Lane, Greenland Bay 

Home to Caroline Edwards and her German Shepherd Clover, this is an original EA lot from Sunset Valley (which is the base hood for Greenland Bay) that I gave a makeover. I'd already done the makeover ages ago but I didn't save the household with the house so I had to do it all over again. From what I can remember I think this time around it looks a lot better.

Soldier On

Round 2 Summer, February 2101
Jones Family

Alistair is 43, Samantha is 41 and Harrison is 15.

Narrated by Harrison.

So I've been doing really well at school lately and Mum and dad promised that if my grades improved then they would buy me a bigger aquarium for my fish. So I worked really hard on my homework during the first semester of school and it was worth the struggle I tell you. They got me the coolest aquarium I've ever seen!

It has lots of real live plants and some ceramic pots for the fish to hide in and even a treasure chest. I only have like four fish but I'm hoping they will breed so that I have a couple of schools in there eventually. It's heaps big enough so I don't think they'll be too cramped.

Update Coming Soon!

Just a little note to say that I haven't abandoned this blog! Life is good at the moment and busy. Now that Summer has ended and Winter is well and truly on it's way I'll be spending more time in the hot seat (my desk chair lol) and updating this blog again. I always tend to back off a little during Summer as it's my favourite season so I don't like to waste it. I'm already feeling the Winter blues kick in but I'm fighting it-or pretending it's not there, lol.

I did start a little project on tumblr earlier this year when I took two weeks off work, making over Sunlit Tides and all the original households living there. I kind of got a bit carried away but it was something I'd wanted to do for a while. ST has become one of my favourite hoods to play in. I'm a huge fan of the beach so what can I say, it feels like a home away from home when I play in that hood. :)
I'm at the stage where I only have a few more households to makeover and then I'm done. Of course then there are the community lots, but to be honest most of them in ST aren't too bad. I'll be happy to let my newly made over sims simmer in the background for a while now and live out their lives (yes, I've turned aging & story progression on!) while I turn my focus back to Freedom Shores.

I've missed the creative outlet this blog gives me. Mainly writing and story telling. So time to get back into it! My next update is the Jones family and I'm making a start on taking the shots this week so should have the update ready hopefully in the next fortnight.

Hope everyone is doing well! :)

Lot Tour - Jones Family

99 Langraab Avenue is home to the Jones' family, Alistair, Samantha & their teenage son Harrison and for a long time I have wanted to makeover this lot, especially the inside.
This lot is an existing EA lot that I plonked the Jones' in back when I was writing The Drifter and I just never got around to making it a proper home for them. Actually, I did make over the kitchen for their family photo shoot back then but I've since changed the colour scheme.
