Happy Home Paradise

Into It!

I ‘completed’ Happy Home Paradise recently and now have a hospital and clothes shop, as well as an amazing beach party that has to be in my top 10 fun gaming moments of all time. I don’t even want to share images and spoil it for anyone still playing. Sasha was my second last home design and he’s so cute and loves space so I really want him on Neptune. I’m taking a break from HHP now as I’m enjoying being able to redesign my villagers’ homes on Neptune – some of them had the worst layouts and now they’re so much nicer. I will share some photos once I get them all at home.

I’m still playing a lot of Breath of the Wild in Master Mode too, and started updating my tumblr again. Master Mode is a bit like life in pandemic year 3 – everything is basically the same as normal but a bit more difficult and takes more effort. I’m enjoying myself though, especially using amiibo cards to get different armour and weapons for a change.
