Belinda and Will started the day by going to school, and since Rosanne’s a teacher, she headed off too, leaving Kenny and Maeve (both retired) and Ned (who doesn’t have to work until the afternoon) at home, skilling. Kenny was working on getting his last cooking point, Maeve was after a body point, and Ned was going for creativity. After they’d all been at it a while, I saw Kenny and Maeve’s daughter Florrie walking past, so Ned went out to greet his little sister.
Kenny stopped watching TV almost as soon as Florrie sat down, and then walked up to Maeve and started arguing with her! Neither Ned nor Florrie batted an eyelid, and since Maeve kissed him up arm straight afterwards, and then Kenny serenaded her, I have a feeling this is just the way they roll - alternating between arguing over nothing in particular and spamming each other with romantic interactions.
Belinda came home from school with Kizzy Young who is a) quite a lot older than her, and b) not in the book club. The teens of Sand Simoleon Point are defined by whether they are in the book club (Belinda, Silas Friend, Althea Redford and Kai Young) or not (Kizzy Young and Jacynth Eddison). Belinda made sandwiches for her and Kizzy, which Florrie joined them to eat too. After lunch, Belinda took a nap, as did Will when he got home from school.
When Belinda woke up, she was in serious need of a fun boost, so I sent her down to Eastern Shores to ice skate. She wasn’t particularly happy about it, because ice skating apparently wasn’t fun enough. But it got her up to a safe enough level that she was able to have some dinner, and then head down to shoo Mum’s co-worker off the piano.
Will woke up wanting to do his homework and to ask for help with it, and Kenny’s motives were in the best place to help him, so the two of them went up to Will’s alien themed room, and Will learnt to study, before going outside to jump rope before heading off to bed.
In the morning, everyone was up bright and early and ready for another day at work and school.
