It’s Ofelia’s 19th birthday!
The day was celebrated at the Asian restaurant (of course )
Time for presents!… and what present!! Ofelia’s parents know that Ofelia doesn’t feel ready to start university next year – she really doesn’t have clue what to study Because you can’t study martial arts at university So – if she wants to – her parents will send her to Shang Simla next year instead. She can stay as long as she wants; 1 month, 6 months – a whole year!
What a dream come true for Ofi!!!
Matthew and Jenna knew that their other daughters (well, perhaps especially Sophia) would be quite jealous of such a huge present, so even though it wasn’t their birthdays, Sophia and Lucia were given a considerable amount of simoleans “To invest in your futures!”
They decided to grab a game of ping-pong to work off all that dim sum
Not sure if Sophia was angry because she was left out of the game … or because Matthew tried talking to her about her break-up with Milo
With Sophia and Lucia
Let’s spend a little time with the Parker sisters
One morning, Sophia was up unusually early using the computer. I think she was setting up a dating profile (but boy, is that dating system flawed?!)
Lucia was making a yummy pancake breakfast!
It went really well!!
Sophia had invited Sven over. He owns a little juice stand in the Chinese Garden right by Sophia’s workplace (the spa). I think they must have become friends, because she goes there after work? Anyway, that was worth exploring!
Flirty greeting Typical Sophia
They were really hitting it off
With Mike L
It was also Mike Lewis’ birthday this month
He’s turning 40 and thus raging up to Adult!! Still very much young at heart, though
He just celebrated it quietly at home with his wife, Lisa

Sophia and Sven’s date
She went to his juice stand at the Chinese Garden just as he had closed down for the day and the two had a chat and a laugh
Sophia then invited Sven to the Sculpture Garden café for coffee and cake, and he of course said yes
(It seemed a bit too cold to sit outside, but there was snow inside as well because of the glass roof that doesn’t actually seem to function like a roof )
It was just a nice and relaxed date They had cake, looked at the sculptures and just enjoyed each other’s company
Nate’s an elder!
Nate – Bimlico’s mayor – turned 65 and aged up to elder this month! He didn’t choose to throw a big party… Maybe he’s a bit ambivalent about ageing up? Maybe he should consider retiring soon?
Instead of throwing Christmas this year, let’s have a “Grandparents’ day”!
Hannah was up early! She couldn’t wait for the kids to arrive
She prepared a nice, big breakfast for everyone.
The kids were quick to finish their breakfast and went to watch TV
They all had a very nice day, playing both indoors and outdoors.
Madeleine never showed up
New Year’s Ever
The university students decided to throw this years New Year’s party at the Beach Club (they really shouldn’t have… It was quite boring And no one really went for the champagne!! )
