* Oyster Bay Poolside Bar

I've never built a poolside bar before, and I think I may have gotten a tad carried away with this one! I built it on a 64 x 64 lot to replace the Lagoon View Pools in Sunlit Tides, but it will go on any 64 x 64 plot of land. It's been play tested by my current favourite sim, Mya May and she seemed to quite like it. You may want to consider replacing the DJ Booth with a music system, my sims don't seem inclined to dance quite as much when a DJ is choosing the music.

If ya want it, the download and it's details are at the bottom of the page.

* Boo

I'm not going to make a big song and dance about returning to this blog after a couple of years absence - I have been bumbling around the Sims Community, mostly quietly, for the past 10 months or so and have been posting on my tumblr blog The Other Sim Antics. It's a great community, incredibly creative and warm, but I miss my Blogger Blog and those of you that have somehow managed to find your way back here, regardless of it's lack of updates.

I've been building lots and sharing them again, not many - just one or two, and I'm going to share them here as well and hope that you enjoy them as much as you have my other uploads over the years. Remember, you're not allowed to tell me if you don't like them. It's in the RULZ.

I don't currently have any plans to purchase or acquire The Sims 4, by fair means or foul - it's not floating my boat at this stage - just in case you were wondering ;-)

I've thought long and hard about whether or not I'll play my game again - and I currently have no answer. I've not loaded it up in quite some time, and have no inclination to either. Real life ain't so bad once you give it a good go.

I felt the need to write this post to say thank you to all of you that have made playing this game a much richer experience. The simming community is amongst the biggest and best out there, and it's been a pleasure (mostly) to be a part of it. I've made a few wonderful *keeper* friends, and some great acquaintances. I've even made a few enemies... which was fun!

I won't say that I'll never play again - I just might. This blog is going to remain here - fully intact - just in case I *get the urge*.

Gang aft agley.

If you're wondering where I am and what I'm doing - you can find me here, under my real name - the whole *incognito/username* thing was fun with the sims - but not so much without it. Yes. I am rolling my eyes at myself, right along with you. I've traded the sims in for my first obsession - food and cooking and EATING!

Here's where I send a huge hug to Ninoo. Because I can.

Much love

* The Washboard Laundromat

I built this launderette/laundromat (depending on which side of the pond you live), quite some time ago and haven't given it much thought since. It's currently residing in my Sunset Valley, on the corner of Mirabello Road, just opposite where the original hospital sat and on the land that was previously occupied by the art gallery. Though the art gallery lot was demolished and replaced with a smaller parcel of land. I think it's 30 x 20, but will have to go back into my game to check and can't be arsed right now.

It has a cupcake cafe attached to it's backside, because I could - and it has all been playtested. You may want to remove the dukebox, as random sims turn up for a boogie when your playable sim is washing his smalls. I quite liked that though, the madness of the SV sims is always entertaining :)

Also, I succumbed and used laundry type items from the Town Life SP, and a neon Car Wall hanging thingy from Fast Lane. It's all easily replaced with objects from Ambitions though (was ambitions the one where we got laundry????). If ya want it, the download and it's details are at the bottom of this page...
