We’ve been having a laugh lately dressing for the different club themes and one theme in particular sent us searching our inventories to see how tarty we could look! It had been a Tarts and Vicars night at the West End Club and it took me ages to achieve this look, Hibiscus too, but it was a lot of fun. Not often blond, it made a nice change for me. We had a great time at the club, there were lots of vicars, nuns and even monks as well as loads of glam girls!
I just love being at my new parcel on the homestead sim Jamaica Inn and I’ve been doing all sorts, including making plants, which I’ve got for sale there and digging a pond.
I suddenly got it into my head that I wanted some ducks on the pond and travelled over to one of the animal places called Animania. Well they had so many lovely birds and things that I spent a fortune. I spotted some macaws and it was love at first sight. They bob their heads move along the perch and suddenly take off, circling around the garden before landing back on their perch. I started off with two, a greenwing macaw and a blue and gold and then decided to go back and buy the hyacinth macaw too, so now they all live happily at Jamaica Inn.
I got my ducks too and a feeder for them!
There was a tale to tell though with the ducks. When I first put the parent ducks in the pond they suddenly took off and disappeared. I searched everywhere and in the end called the store. A really nice lady called Anni came over and said that I needed to flatten out the bottom of the pond to give them a big enough swim area. We couldn’t find the ducks so she gave me a replacement pair. Anni left and I decided to put one of the ducks in the now altered pond, but as I did the duck flew off again, this time with my camera tracking it. I was able to get it back, it had gone over to Spook’s sim and suddenly I spotted the first pair swimming in some water at the end of the sim near Spooks place. Incredibly they had found some water and looked quite happy swimming about. I gathered them up and returned them to Anni, thanking her for her help. Well I got the ducks in my pond finally and went and bought a pair of ducklings for them to look after. They are really sweet and look very real.
I’ve been working on the inside of the Inn too and nearly finished it. I’ve installed the Truthball there so anyone passing can call in and have a game with it. I’ve saved so many prims by using Johnnytreadlightly Nightfire’s furniture which looks amazing! I did return to the animal place again and bought one last thing, a lovely blue butterfly, just like the ducks he flew off into the distance when I first put him down and I really couldn’t find him. However, today I logged on and he was flying around in a different part of my land. I also have Max the Siamese cat running around so it’s very lively and I’m beginning to think these virtual animals do have a mind of their own!
