Feeling ill and Sims addiction

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted for a while, I have been feeling ill and some stressful things have been happening at school.

As you may know from the title of this post, I am currently having a Sims addiction. I am constantly playing it on the PS3, but I always have a Sylvanian at my side!

Apologies for the extremely boring post, I just thought I would tell you where I’ve been for the past week. Does anyone else like to play Sims? If not Sims, then what other video games do you play? Leave a comment!

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello everyone! I have been nominated by Geeky_Girl for the Blogger Recognition Award! 🙂 I have never been nominated for an award before, this is my first one! Please leave a comment if I have missed anything or got anything wrong.

Rules:

  • Tell how your blog got started and give a bit of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate bloggers to receive the award and notify them on their blog. No tag backs.

How Olivia’s Sylvanian Stuff began:

Well it all began in December of 2013. I loved Sylvanian Families and I found a really cool blog about them. My dad said that if I liked that blog so much then why didn’t I start my own? This blog started just after Christmas, and so I had a lot of new thngs to post about. 🙂

Advice for new bloggers:

Well, the most obvious thing is to take good photos, and have lots of them. I hate blogs with hardly any photos. Sometimes it is hard to take good photos, but you could take some and post them temporarily, and then come back later and update them. Good lighting is key!

Also, make sure you have lots of different pages for your readers to look at. I really don’t like blogs that just have homepages with posts.

I nominate:

I think I have done it right! 🙂 The nominees don’t have to do it if they don’t want to (or if they are clueless about blog awards like me!)

Byeeeeeee!

Book Club: week 2

‘Good afternoon everyone!’ beamed Mrs Robinson ‘Welcome to another book club session! This week we read the first book in the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ series. What did everyone think?’

IMG_00000493

They started with Ron Barker ‘Well, I thought it was really good, definitely better than the Hunger Games.’

‘I loved it too!’ chipped in Alfie Robinson.

‘Well, I know you liked it because you wouldn’t put it down to eat your dinner!’ Mrs Robinson said to her son.

‘I thought it was a really creative way to engage kids, by using something that they could relate to’ said Jessica Buckley intelligently.

‘So, here is your next book. Have a nice week full of reading!’ said Mrs Robninson, and they all said goodbye and went home.

 

Hope you enjoyed it!

Red Panda Family

Hello everyone! I hope you’re not getting too bored of updates, but here’s another one (it will be quick!) I love red pandas, and they are my favourite Sylvanian family. Some of you may know that I have two because I won one in a competition. I have decided to extend their family from four members to five. Here they are:

Frances, Wilbur, Cali, Fliss and Alfie (Alfie is the new member of the family, he is the brother).

Updates

Hello everyone! Here are some updates and random things.

Don’t you just hate it when this happens:

IMG_00000490

If you can’t see (you probably can’t ), this little pair of dungarees is broken. 😦 But to be fair, this is the first ever Sylvanian thing I have had that has broken. It will be hard to sew up again because it is so teeny! Oh well.

For those of you desperately wanting the next part of the photo story, do not fear! I am currently working on it. It will probably be up in the next couple of days.

Byeeeeeeee!
