I'll be leaving this blog as it is so people can still read and remember the sims if they wish (god, I miss Joanne, she was one of my favourites!).
I have however, just started up a new sims 2 blog, Spring Bay. The first update, plus all gameplay notes will be posted tomorrow!
I have also just purchased a new gaming PC which seems to run sims 3 much better than my old PC. I'm just having a play around, getting used to the game then i'll most likely start up a sims 3 blog, in addition to Spring Bay so keep an eye out for that!
