APRIL 17 - It's Patch Day for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac! Patch notes here.
Friday Highlight 04/13 is out in the wild! Check out the highlights here!

AU/NZ check in. Welcome to our home away from home.

Plops down esky
Well... Here we are.

Smaller digs than we're used to. Not much space to swing a cat. :/

So, how about this weather?
I'm freezing my toes off down here. What happened to summer? Not that I'm complaining, winter is coming, I say!

    Pass us a coldie will ya? You might be freezing your booties off but it's stinkin' hot here. Did you bring the cheese and bickies or was I sposta do that? Anyhoo, (buzz off fly) ... I reckon we oughta be compensated with a "Under the Southern Cross" Stuff pack.

    I'll kick off .. akubras, ugg boots and budgie smugglers! That pretty much covers all weather fashion. ;)

    @Movotti do you have any bundy and coke in that esky. Throw us one if you do. Would love to fire up the barbie but we have had so much rain here in Canberra. Where is the summer that we love - 30 to 40 degrees celcius has given way to 10 to 20 degrees and rain. We need our summer Christmas with our seafood spread and salads.

    Oh and @sawdust, for the Southern Cross pack, we also need Southern Cross tattoos for our sims!

    I know you said beach cricket, but you also have to play backyard cricket - with the stumps being the fence. Over the fence is six and out.

    Gotta be careful with the thongs - these other nationalities will think you are talking about underwear and not footwear.

    Definitely need a Hills Hoist as part of the pack - had so much fun on those as kids.

    ~ We need some NZ in the Stuff Pack- "Down under"

    Chocolate fish, pineapple lumps, hokey pokey ice cream melting under the December sun at a Christmas barbie.

    The one thing I would love to never incorporate into the pack is Wellingtonian winds.

    Vegemite is Aussie along with the pav - here we go, an international incident between the Aussies and the Kiwis. :D
