  1. Just survived a 60 hour power blackout.

    It was a bit like enforced camping, but with your own bed to sleep in. :P

      I'm glad your power is back now, Rose! :hug:

      Me too Blue. There were some people with 5 days without and I am not sure if everyone is back on grid yet. Not fun.

  2. So we had the funeral for my dad today.

    I did not say anything earlier because he died just before my birthday. We were not close in the end, he was 88 and I don't think he wanted family close, just in case we tried to interfere with his life. He was a stubborn old recluse, and not very nice at times, but we will still miss him.

      I just kind of numbed myself to the whole situation.

  3. Thought I had better check in. All is well here but I have been really busy with study. I have finished one major assessment and I have three assessments due in the next few weeks. Plus we have been renovating the house. I opened sims for the first time tonight, but won't have much time to play until around the end of June.

    Hope you are all safe and well. :grouplhugpull:

      :26: Definitely on the mend. Just need to remember I am not quite there yet and have to keep up with the water. This one just seem to be dragging on.

      Well done, Rose!!!! Many congratulations!!!! :picgifs-awesome-8590631:

      I have the same question as Klinn, do you get a break?

    3. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      Thanks everyone. :heart:

      I actually get my first proper break in 2 years. We have summer break now and I don't have to go back till February.

    4. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      That's wonderful news, Rose!!! Enjoy the break!!!

      Note quite. I am still recovering from flu and have developed a bursitis on top of that. I only got half way through today, but my lecturer is awesome and helped me get that far. I have two more goes at it till the final mark. I have next Tuesday and Wednesday to finish and now I know what I have to review before then to finish.

    3. Kimi

      Kimi

      Get rest! Luckily your lecturer is human and knows what it's like to not be at 100%.

    4. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      Do get some rest and plenty of liquids before you take the test. Best of lucks!!!! :heart:

  9. I would world test tonight, but I have a big Charlie pudding on my lap.

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      That's the best kind of pudding!

  10. Just did the entry test for the course I want to get into. I think I did okay, it's pretty basic stuff. Offers come out in June, so here's hoping I make the lists and there aren't too many people down for the course.

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      Good luck!! I'm sure you did great. *crosses fingers*

    2. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      Well done!!! The first step is usually the hardest, but after taking the test it all comes down to waiting, like you say. I wish you the best for this path, and I am hoping with you that you are given an offer.

  11. My course unit is getting pretty heaving so I have to back off sims for a while. I still have lots of pictures to catch up on so shouldn't disappear all together. I am up to ratios in financial reporting. :wacko:

      Great! Best of luck with your course, @Rosewin!

      Got thought the first assessment. Not as long and drawn out as I thought it would be. :greenstars: There is another one next week that is a continuation of this weeks paper, so I think it will be okay.

    4. Figwit

      Figwit

      That sounds difficult, Rose but you can do it.  Your Sims will wait patiently for you to return and so will we.:armflowers:

  12. My final assessment kicked my butt last week. Totally blanked out on it. I get another crack at it this Thursday, so hopefully I will be back here after then.
    Off to do some more cramming. :thinking-hard-smiley-emoticon:

  13. My mild cold is not so mild anymore. To say I am pissed would be an understatement!!! :eew:

    1. RavenKay

      RavenKay

      I am so sorry you are ill. :consoling2:

      I hope you get better soon :grouplhugpull:

      Thanks Raven, feeling a little better today.

    3. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      Glad to hear you are feeling better, Rose!!! Take it easy!!! Plenty of liquids and rest!!

  14. So the computer has been really sick the last week. Winnie is trying to fix it, so I am on the old clunker for now. Fingers crossed that he can get the CPU fan up and running again.

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      Hopefully he'll put the correct whatchamacallit into the proper dodad and all will be well! But seriously, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    2. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      Crossing fingers with Kimi, too!!!

    3. RavenKay

      RavenKay

       

      fingers crossed here too :good-luck:

  15. So today was the first day I actually felt okay. About bloody time.:greenstars:

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      So good to hear!! Continue on that path, please.

      Great to hear that!!! Take it easy and be gentle to yourself. Your body will let you know what it needs, so listen to it. :heart:

  16. We are meant to go onto the NBN (National broadband network) today. It will either mean I can load and read pages much better or I will disappear because they stuffed it up some how. Fingers crossed it is the former.

      What's the verdict? Better, worse or what in the heck did they do?

    3. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      Really good so far. Winnie and I can finally use the net without slowing each other down and I can open the more picture heavy threads here and not wait for ten minutes to load. We are part of the first wave to use it here, so it will be interesting as more and more people get on.

    4. RedMallie

      RedMallie

      Congratulations, Rose!!! It sounds like a very good improvement.

  17. Well study has started for me again and we are off with a bang. I already have a large theory assessment due in two weeks. On top of that I start a new job in a month, thankfully the hours will build gradually as I learn the ropes. Really excited about the future, but it does meant gaming will take a back seat again. I will try and pop in here now and again.

      Hope you got it fixed. (hates working with electricity)

    3. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      All fixed.

      It was a broken switch we didn't use and a piece of metal had fallen over the contacts and started arcing.

      We have a new switch now.

      Oh jeez I'm ready to rip my hair out with the 9 i have right now!

    3. Rosewin

      Rosewin

      I spend all my time getting them to bed, getting them back us for school and making sure they all get through the door and then starting all over again. I max motives a lot but when I forget they are on their own. The birthdays are just nuts!

      I'd be curled up in a corner. Whimpering. 8 with static motives is challenging enough!

  23. 1am and the house is cooler, maybe I should go to bed. :P
