At the Wilkie-Newsons, it was time for a change of scenery when I got fed up of everyone throwing errors every five minutes, so their new lot is slightly bigger, with a bit of room behind the “house” for expansion, once they have the money.
Sadie asked Scot on a date, and they went to the Swimming Hole, and then the Diner, and then back home, all the time struggling to roll wants beyond the generic start of date ones, or generic family “I want a pet!” ones. Finally, I had a look and discovered that they were only rolling platonic wants - I assume because she’s an adult and he’s a teen. I have inteen, so they can still have romantic interactions (although the animations are majorly messed up) but they won’t get any aspiration points for them, which sucks. Scot can’t get to college fast enough!
Meanwhile, the Newsons all fished until the early hours of the morning, went to bed, got up, had breakfast and went back to fishing whilst waiting for the bathroom - a second bathroom is the next thing this house desparately needs.
In the morning, Sadie went to her second day of work as a Pickpocket, and got a promotion. She was only planning to have this job for a few days until something better came up, but now she’s got a promotion the pay’s better, and as much as she hates being in the Criminal career, her family need the money.
I can tell this promotion is more of Rich pulling strings - I imagine it was him that got her the job in the first place. After all, he did put her out of a job buying the general store, and I wonder if he knows the other way he’s connected to her too…
What with Sadie’s promotion, and all the money the Newsons made from the fish, by the end of the day the upper storey of the house was fully enclosed, and the table up there can now seat all seven of them.
