New Beginnings! Bridget's First Day.

Hello and welcome to my legacy blog. This is the first legacy challenge I have attempted the rules can be found here. I got pretty carried away playing the first night and stayed up really late hehehe. I am attempting a maternity trait challenge.

Anyway! Here is my founder:
Her name is Bridget. It's an Irish name. This name means: Derived from the Irish name Brighid, meaning 'the high one' or 'strength.' Brighid was a mythological Celtic goddess of fire and poetry. This name has been used regularly in the British Isles since the 17th century. Suitable only for girls. It is a popular name.

The name O' Brien relates historically to one of Ireland's leading aristocratic families, the O Briens are primarily from Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, and Waterford.

Riverview is a long way from Tipperary! ;) The Irish theme follows through to my chosen family trait 'Lucky'! symbolised in the game by the shamrock a known irish symbol. Bridget's luck has already shone through in the game but more on that later.

As well as lucky she Loves the Outdoors is Family Orientated a Natural Cook and has a Green Thumb! Her favorites are the great british Fish and Chips, Indie Music and the colour Irish Green.

I moved her into Riverview. Her parents had left her with a large plot of land but very little money so Bridget had to make do with camping for the first few nights in her new home. She set up a makeshift wall so she could erect a toilet. She wasnt shy about going to the loo out in the open after all its her land and she will do what she wants! She loved being out in the open air and oddly her mood was much improved by having no house!

The first problem was food! Well one must prepare for the future! She went to town and after purchasing a couple of lettuce a tomato and an apple from the shops she went to inquire about a job in the nearby restaurant. She was soon with a job and a brighter future. Returning to her camp she planted her produce. Her tummy was rumbling a bit and looking at the local events she noticed that there was a neighboorhood grill- a - thon at the nearby fisheries. Yum! Hot Dogs!.

After arriving she met a very suave sim named Yuri. Bridget contemplated chatting him up but he looked far too rich for her tastes. An old lady sim started playing her guitar and Bridget had a good dance to cheer herself up.

Her cash flow was looking a bit low and Bridget was worried she wouldnt make it through the next day her plants where no where near mature and she wouldnt be going to work untill 3pm. She had heard about people collecting gems and rocks to sell for extra cash. Maybe she should try that she was after all especially lucky with these things. She had heard about a nearby abandoned mine, pretty creepy, but a big lass like Bridget wasnt going to be deterred by some wee beastie giving her the evils.

Her instinct and her bravery paid off big! Her first gem she identified as a Luminorious Gem!
It was worth 350! Simoleans. She gathered the rest of the rocks around the mine and then noticed a strange butterfly nearby in the twilight.

She came closer and it landed on her nose. After having a good giggle she sold the rare zebra butterfly for alot of cash!

What the! A cheeky lady bug had snuck it way into her pocket!!! She decided to keep him and name him Dougal after her father.

She could now afford a few more bits and bobs for her home HOORAY! Her lot was starting to look a little more respectable and the lack of walls didnt bother her she loved the outdoors!


  1. Where in the world did you find the mine? I've been looking for it! :)

  2. Its right across the map from the riverview starting lot. I only noticed it because I had side scroll on and went afk when I came back my screen was half on it hehe.

  3. Your graphics look great - I'm so envious, you have grass! Really liked the picture of the mine & am intrigued by the beastie.

    Bridget looks so very appealing.
