* 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...

* Ninoo's Cemetary

When Ninoo requested a Chapel, she also slipped in (illegally) a request for a cemetary to go with it. BAD NINOO. I've been sort of distracted just lately and Ninoo has been my ray of sunshine. The girl is absolutely, utterly and completely NUTZ and I love her. So I figured I'd finally better pull my finger out, and do this for her.

As requested, it has all the gumpf that a cemetary normally has, and there's an underground *tomb* type bar, with a grotto style hot tub. Nothing special, just a little extra that's completely alterable. The lot has been play tested and is fully functional. All the gravestones are generic ones, and can/should be replaced as you play your games and your sims actually kick the bucket :D

I kept the shades of blue that Ninoo wanted for the Chapel, too... and I have a feeling that I forgot to designate it as a cemetary!!!! You can do that though ;)

* Everything Changes

Over the past 10 years or so, I've been a member of various Simming Communities and co-owned several downloads sites, one of which was Sims 3 Musketeers. I've wanted to do my own thing for a while now, and the time is right - so I have removed all of my downloads from S3M, and they are now here, on my blog. If anything is missing, it's because I plan on redoing it at some point in the future.

You can find easily accessable links in the column on the left, that let you know where the downloads are - both Community and Residential. Where there are more than one type of *lot* to download, there is an additional label eg. Library/Art Gallery. If that's all too confusing, let me know and I'll attempt to simplify things.

Don't forget that there's more than just downloads labeled though. This is, after all, a blog :)

If anyone has any issues with my downloads, whether it's locating them, or just plain *download not working*, please let me know here (or on tumblr), somewhere - and I'll do what I can to help.

* Minus One

Just a quick note to let people know that I have resigned as admin/top dog at The Sims Daily. 

It was fun while it lasted and I want to reassure friends and enemies alike - yes, I have enemies (they even send me nasty little PMs from time to time.. can you imagine???!!!???... oh the shame of finally understanding that not everyone is as wonderful as me) - that I was not pushed out or asked to leave - in fact it's not what the rest of the team wanted, it's what I wanted

I am far happier bimbling about all over the shot, doing my own thing, than I am having to deal with the almost daily crisis that crop up when you're trying to please all of the people, all of the time. I'm not a people pleaser, so you can imagine just how often I would get my knickers in a twist!!!

Thankyou to all the people that make/have made the forum such a special place to spend time, and although I am no longer admin, I promise I will continue to turn up and *try the patience of a saint*, on a regular basis.

Lots of love to Dailies and The Crew,

L xx
