This large and rambling mansion is currently home to four Sims:
Olivia Ottomas, whose twin brother Oliver sadly died in a kitchen fire not long after they moved here......her older brother Tommy Ottomas, mother-in-law Kristen Singles...
...and his wife Silvia, Kristen's daughter. Maybe you remember that Kristen was never married but found her three-bolt-love in Checo Ramirez, who left his wife and children for her. Together, they had Silvia, and lived happily as a family until Checo's death (he was quite a bit older than Kristen).Apart from Olivia, everyone in this household is on Permanent Platinum and therefore pretty much left to their own devices. Silvia really loves the pool in the inner courtyard of the house and can often be found there. Good job it is heated!Tommy may not be controlled by me, but he still knows what I expect of a good Sim: to keep their surroundings clean and tidy. Olivia's lifetime want is to become Professional Party Guest. So far, she has not found a job in the Slacker career, but Kristen tells her not to worry. She is sure there will soon be a position available for her.Monday ends with me ordering Olivia to do some necessary gardening. Sadly, this is one of the Maxis-made houses that were obviously never really play-tested; many of the shrubs are placed on slopes or otherwise inaccessible. But Olivia does what she can.It is early Tuesday morning when she is still out in the garden. Having finished trimming the shrubs, she decides it is time for some fun. She builds a snowman first and then makes a snow angel. It is fun watching her; she feels like a little girl all over again.
When she starts to feel the cold, she goes inside and I have her light the fire in the small upsatirs living room.
Mother and daughter enjoy a morning swim. Honestly, I feel cold just watching them in their bikinis in the snow!
Before she can once more look for a job, Olivia has to repair the computer. While she does this, her mind is elsewhere :-)
The computer is broken again, and when Olivia tries to repair it so that she can look for a job, she is electrocuted.
Although they seemed to be so well able to look after themselves, Tommy and Silvia were not intelligent enough to survive.
