Anyone up for a challenge??

I've been meaning to post this for a while :D Hope you enjoy it!!!
Download the challenge lot here. Checked and Bad CC and Doll free!
This is Garth Lewis, he is a middle-aged geek who still lives with his mother (I know, such a stereotype!) He is a computer whiz, genius, un-flirty, loner and a looser. On the plus side he is good at logic, very handy and a decent cook. He is also a complete mummy's boy. He wants to be a creature-robot cross breeder but he just doesn't seem to be able to get promoted as he spends too much time on the computer to be able to develop the skills he needs (sometimes he even skips work to spend whole days playing computer games).
This is Garth's mother Edna. Her husband was killed in a fire when Garth was a baby and since then she has never been quite 'right'. She used to be the most popular woman in town thanks to her friendly nature and her excellent cooking and gardening skills but since the fire she has been acting strangely and her 'friends' have slowly deserted her. She is neat, easily impressed, family orientated, technophobic and (you guessed it) Insane. She dreamed of having loads of children but since the fire her wish has not been possible.
So there you have the Lewis family. They live at 55 Water Lily Lane in Sunset Valley.
Garth isn't exactly what most of the women in SS Valley would think of as an ideal husband. He still lives with his mother, he isn't successful and he loves his computer more than he should. He isn't exactly the romantic type and tends to avoid talking to people (unless he can do it online). Despite this, he feels bad that his mother had to give up her dream of a large family and wants to make it up to her.

Now for the challenge:
  • Fulfil Garth's Lifetime wish (level 9 in the Science career) before Edna dies.
  • Find Garth a woman.
  • Get Garth married.
  • Garth must have at least 3 children before Edna dies.
  • Have Garth complete all the upgrades he has started around the house.
  • Garth can only use the business as usual or relax in specimen closet options while at work.
  • Garth can only meet his future bride on the internet and must be at least Good Friends with her before meeting face-to-face for the first time. She must also be single as Garth isn't the kind of man who would break up a relationship.
  • Garth must be married before his first child is conceived as his mother is very traditional and would not approve of a grandchild being conceived outside of marriage.
  • The children do not have to be single births, you can have twins/triplets if you want. They must all be blood relatives of Garth (adopted children or his wife's existing children do not count although they are allowed as well as the other children)
  • Garth must spend at least 4 hours a day playing computer or video games.
  • Garth can earn extra money by hacking or solving the unsolvable.
  • Garth cannot gain more than 1 skill point per day as the amount of time he spends on the computer make it impossible for him to learn anything quickly.
  • The family must stay living in the same house. You may extend it but it must be decorated in a similar style as the existing house.
  • Edna must stay living with Garth until she dies.
  • Once Edna had died the challenge is over.
Other Rules:
  • No life fruits/death flowers.
  • You can play on any life length you like, I have played on normal (90 days) but please have ageing turned on!
  • If you use hacks, cheats or play on a longer life expectancy please say that you have! (There is nothing wrong with it.)
  • Feel free to recreate the family if you want. If you do so bear in mind that you will loose the skills I have given them for the start which will probably make it more difficult to complete the challenge.

Please give me some feedback on this. Was it too easy or too hard? Were there too many goals and limitations? What could I do to make it more fun to play? Thanks :D

Death and Birthdays...

Right...the general story is that Bob's mother died :(
Louis grew up!
During Louis' Party there was another tragedy.
Bob's dad died :( Poor Bob!!
And this is Louis as a toddler!

Sad News :(

I have a sad announcement to make...the Figg family have gone :(
I had a bit of a problem a while ago and I discovered a little while ago that the Figg family save game has disappeared :(
I have a few more screens which I have had sat as draft posts for a while. I will try to remember as much of the story as I can and will post them in a bit.

Lola and Bob's first date...

A week after Lola's birthday Bob decided that it was time to take Lola out. He had been saving up so that he could take her out to the fanciest restaurant in town.
They arrived early for their reservation so Lola suggested that they went inside for drinks first. 
They decided that they wanted to eat outside as it was a lovely warm evening so they ordered then sat outside and waited for their food. Even though they were such good friends, the idea of being on a date made them nervous so they waited for their food in silence.
By the time the food arrived they were both quite hungry. As they ate they started to feel more comfortable and talked more. It took them over 3 hours to eat their meal because they were chatting so much.
After the meal, Bob took Lola home. They stood inside the door, both unsure of what to do.
After a moment they both leaned in and kissed each other goodnight.

I hope you enjoyed reading :) More to come soon!

Birthdays Galore...

Arabella had sent James out to buy some groceries. While he was walking across the park the time came for his birthday and he turned into an adult. He went and finished up the shopping and headed back home again.
While James was out, Arabella had started having contractions. The were getting closer together and she was hoping James would be home soon to witness the birth.
As soon as James came in the door he heard his wife screaming in the living room. He ran straight in and started panicking! All of what Arabella had told him about the stages of labour and what to do had suddenly left his mind.
"Well...aren't you going to do something?!?!?!?"
Luckily Arabella managed to sort most things by shouting orders at James and he was to shocked at what was happening to question.
After a lot more screaming and pushing Arabella gave birth to her baby. A little boy called Louis. Because Arabella had a fantastic pregnancy she could choose his traits.
She loved him instantly and you could see from the way they looked at each other that they would be very close forever.

After feeding Louis and cuddling him for a while Arabella took him up to his new bedroom which had been finished only a couple of days earlier.
The following day it was Arabella's turn to have her birthday. James invited family and close friends to a small party to celebrate Louis's birth and Arabella's birthday.

I hope you enjoyed reading :)
