Zanobi 2 - Fall 2015

Last update/Next update

The Zanobi Family
Dimitri is 32, Andrea is 34, Matthew is 11 and Marlys is 7
(Laura Penninkmeijer is 13)
Dimitri: Since there were some constructural problems with out house, Andrea and I made the decision to more. The architect usured us that there was no danger, but we both didn't feel safe any more, we demanded a huge part of our money back and talked to another architect for a new house.
I have to say it looks great, and Andrea did a great job on the intirior as well. I have to say we are as happy here, as we were in the old one, if not happier!
Since we were redoing almost everything, I decided to redo the shop as well. It seems like I can display a lot more items right now. Customers keep comming in large numbers, wich was something I didn't expect. One day everybody would have a pet, but it seems like this isn't the case in SimsVille, and you won't hear me complaining!
Andrea's job is going fine as well. I still worry though. She still works nights, and climbs into bed early in the morning. before she has to leave for work, she has a little time with the children. Sometimes I wish she would get a promotion, but on the other hand maybe a promotion would get her an even more dangerous job!
The children really love the lunches and dinners they have with their mother, especially Marlys enjoys her mom's attention.
Matthew is really growing up too fast. He wants it all a little bit too soon. One day, when I came home from the shop, I saw him kissing a girl! He's only 11, he's way too young! I tried talking to him about it, but he just told me that it's his life. Andrea thinks the same as I do, but she also thinks Matthew is right; it's his life, and he should deside what he wants to do with it.
He still works hard for school though, and he's still very keen to go to university in a few years, and he still wants to finish high school as the top of his class, so as long as he does those things, I really don't have anything to say about it!
Marlys is still all about toys and bears, and playing in the playground. These thoughts are thoughts that parents want from their children. But she's only 7, so I gues that's normal, she will become a little lady in a few years.
Andrea and I don't have much time for each other lately. So one nigth I surprised her with a dinner at the new restaurant. It was nice, just the 2 of us. We were surprised to find the children sound asleep in their beds when we got home!

  • I know this update are bit an peaces, but when I started to write this one, I realized I really didn't take a lot of pictures, and that not much has happend in this household, so I'm sorry about that!
  • I really love Andrea in her formal-wear, but I can't dress her like that all the time of course.
  • Matthew and Laura .... Well it just went natural. He brought her home from school, I let them hang out, and they got along really well, so I thought "why not?" It was only later I realize that he's only 11 ... at least they don't do much, just hang out and an occasional cuddle. It wasn't really what I had planned for him, but they look sweet together.
  • Next update normally on saturday, enjoy reading!!


  1. At long as Matthew and Laura don't jump into bed together like my Jacob and Patience did (at 13 and 12!) Kissing is fine but let's keep it at that!

    Andrea does look great in her formal wear. I bet she thinks it's fun to dress up once in a while!

  2. Haha, yeah Matthew and Laura are a little young to go past first base. They are cute, and I agree that Andrea looks great in her formal wear, as does Dimitri.

    Its funny about Andrea's hours, and a promotion being more dangerous... she is a criminal.. lol. I don't know if that's a career that necessarily gives the best hours, nor is the safest.

  3. Carla: I really hope they are not going to be like Jacob and Patience, but since I don't have ACR, and I basically control my sims, I don't think that will happen :)

    Maisy: Andrea has the LTW to reach the top of the criminal career, so I let her, she already reached level 7, but it doesn't give the best hours and safety, we'll see where she ends up :)

  4. I like ACR but there are also advantages to not having it! Like, I didn't even realised it enabled teen WooHoo until Cherry Centowski (then 15) bought a friend home from school and they made for her parents' bedroom when I wasn't looking... lol... they'd only met that day! (told you she was always interesting :) ).

    The house looks nice. Did their old one get buggy in the game, or did you just decide to move them?

  5. Blackcat: Cherry is getting more and more intersting with everything you tell about her!!

    When I redid SimsVille, and moved alls my sims to their new hood, I planned to move all of their houses along with them. But some of the houses kept crashing everytime I loaded them, so some sims where forced to move to another house.
