West End Village, aka the doll room, is tidy and organised enough for me to start working on the Mexican Restaurant. Once that’s finished, I hope to be able to embark on Season 6 with more stories. For now, I thought I’d post a few updates.
An ongoing concern has been the poor wait staff at the café and pizzeria who never seem to get a day off and wear some of their nice outfits. So I’ve recruited two new baristas for the café and will start rotating dolls through their shifts. Adela and Kalani have new jobs at the café.
Adela has started already and Heidi can’t wait for Kalani to come and relieve her.
Tamra and Marguerite enjoy cappuccino and carrot cake.
The Panenka family relaxes around the pool. Dûsko mans the grill.
Bonnie, Claire, and Steffi relax with the babies in the pool.
Ollie and Katie relax with drinks and fresh strawberries. The perfect way to enjoy the hot days of August. The West Enders hope to return soon with a new season!
Hello, dear friends and followers! It’s Mini-Me here again. We’re all at home now and I thought you might like to know what we’ve all been up to since we’ve been back. I’m back at work, nothing too exciting here.
Ilana’s had her hair done but hasn’t chosen a new wardrobe just yet.
Elena is glad to be home with the rest of the Panenka family. Candi tells her all about buying the café and asks Elena if she would like to work there as Candi is really short of help.
On Saturday night, Carmelita persuades Lauralyn to go to the pub, the King George III. The pub is busy and it’s nice to be back in West End Village.
Lauralyn gets chatted up by Diondre almost as soon as she arrives.
The pub is full of single men, as usual, and Barry seizes the opportunity to try his charms on Carmelita.
Across town at the posh bar at the West End Manor Resort, Lenora and Vera drink tropical drinks and chat with some of their new neighbours.
Anna May is reunited with her sisters, Ebony, Lela, and Naomi. They seem pretty intent on something – or someone.
Tobias Alford walks in the door. You may recall that he and Dalpinder went to GlastDollBury22 with Naomi and Ebony. They haven’t heard from him since.
Undeterred, Ebony introduces him to Lela and Anna May.
Lela and Anna May say hello then retreat while Ebony drags a reluctant Naomi over to chat with Tobias.
Anna May: “Well, he’s a tall, dark, and handsome hottie. I wonder how serious he is about our little sisters.”
Lela: “Ebony said they slept in separate tents and that it was friendly but not romantic.”
In the meantime, have you noticed what’s going on here in the corner? James and Mel are looking mighty cozy together. What’s that all about?
Ebony chats blithely away to Tobias, who looks like he wants to escape, while Naomi’s attention is focussed elsewhere. Who is she looking at?
It’s Raheem. He seems to have noticed her as well.
That’s it for the West Enders for now. Maxi-Me has been working day by day to get West End Village up and running but it’s coming along slowly. She hopes that her health will remain stable enough now to start posting Season Six! Clearly there are some stories to be told. We aren’t certain of the format yet. It’s easier and less time consuming to leave out the speech bubbles so the format you see tonight may be what we adopt. As always, the photos will be the focus rather than the text.
Tatiana heads off to work at the Jubilee celebration at the renamed West End Manor Resort. After Melanie divorced Bigly, she became owner under the terms of their prenuptial agreement. Of course, he definitely didn’t intend for her to be living in Bigly Manor at the time, but since he was in jail awaiting trial for attempted murder and offences under the Terrorism Act, he didn’t have much choice. He’s now serving life in prison and everyone is glad to see the last of him.
As evening approaches, some of the West Enders head into the village square for a street party. Of course, they want to pose and show off their fashion choices.
