  • So, today I am hanging out in bed

  • feeling--I feel really rubbish.

  • Claud just left for work.

  • I've had my breakfast

  • and then I threw up my breakfast.

  • Feel a bit gross.

  • Now I feel like that sort of feeling where you're not entirely sure

  • whether you're hungry or sick

  • but I've got Clara here today; she's going to be looking after me.

  • Being awesome.

  • I really want to get some work done

  • because it is Monday, and Monday is the day of work, no?

  • Maybe. Maybe I will try.

  • Or perhaps I will just lie in bed and...play The Sims

  • and then maybe have a bath later, if I'm feeling up to it.

  • Covering my hair that needs a bath in this rather nice turban.

  • Have a video on how to do this, by the way

  • if you're looking.

  • Also wearing this delightful vintage...

  • Let's see. Can you see?

  • There we go.

  • This delightful vintage jumper here, which I love.

  • It's not wool (because I cannot do wool).

  • And Tilly was enjoying cuddling into it earlier.

  • So you know it's good

  • If Tilly approves,

  • you know it's good.

  • Hello again.

  • Still good morning. Still morning.

  • But had a nap.

  • But, look, Tilly's not moved.

  • Tilly?

  • Dogs are so weird.

  • She's either running around like, "Oh, my God, super excitement!"

  • "Yeah, life's so great!"

  • Or she's just...that.

  • But that's probably quite good for me, to be fair, because that is--that is me.

  • Yep.

  • Unlike Walter, who all he does is sleep

  • and then...he smells some chicken

  • and he gets excited for two minutes

  • and then he goes back to sleep.

  • Pretty much what Walter does.

  • It's good, Tilly makes him move around a lot.

  • We got Walter when I was...nineteen, I think?

  • Eighteen, nineteen.

  • And I'd been really, really ill for about a year

  • and had been on bed rest, and...

  • Just generally felt disgusting.

  • Felt really ill.

  • And I was also really, really lonely

  • but I had Walter - just lovely

  • 'cause he used to sleep on my bed

  • and then my dad would take him for a walk.

  • And feed him breakfast, obviously

  • and then he would just come back and sleep on my bed, all day long.

  • Even though he was a little puppy, all he wanted to do was sleep

  • and now he is a sort of middle-aged dog and...all he wants to do is sleep.

  • All right, this is not a good look, Jessica.

  • All right, there's nothing for it.

  • Lipstick.

  • It's the only way.

  • This is of course my Maybelline Superstay 24hr.

  • The Cherry Pie, the one I showed you the other day.

  • 'Tis my favourite!

  • OK.

  • Know what we're going to do to make this day better.

  • We're going to play The Sims.

  • Yes.

  • The Sims is such a great game, because it makes you feel like you've achieved something

  • even when you really, really haven't.

  • Run someone else's world. A whole made-up world.

  • J: Genuinely, you look really good today.

  • C: Thank you! J: I really like your hair.

  • C: Thanks! J: Please comment on Clara's hair.

  • J: Look how pretty it is.

  • J: It's really nice!

  • C: That's what happens when I actually care.

  • J: So, for those of you - I realised that some people watching this might be new to my channel -

  • and might be wondering a) why I'm in bed

  • on a Monday morning

  • b) why I need help

  • and c) who you are!

  • My neighbour actually thinks you're my wife

  • by the way.

  • C: I'm not.

  • C: FYI!

  • J: I found out the other day.

  • J: He was like, "That girl you live with. The short red-haired one."

  • J: So I have chronic illnesses and disabilities

  • which--there are many, many videos on this channel where you can find that out

  • and some of the symptoms are things--well, I have chronic gatigue, for one thing,

  • which is a symptom of the other conditions I have, because my body is always trying to make itself better.

  • And also, when I'm really tired, my stomach doesn't work very well

  • and so I just spend the whole day in intense nausea

  • and it's so gross, and you feel a bit like, "Oh, I can't move my head

  • or my body, or else I will just vomit."

  • And I also have a thing called POTS.

  • Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome

  • I have a video on that, as well, kind of explaining what that is.

  • It's very hard to sit up.

  • And the final part is, "Who is Clara?"

  • Well, who are you?

  • C: Heeey!

  • J: Who are you, Clara?

  • C: I don't know. On a spiritual level?

  • J: Well Clara actually helps me out in all ways

  • of life.

  • C: Yeah.

  • J: When I'm feeling gross and ill, you look after me.

  • You bring me the sick bucket

  • and drinks.

  • And she makes me sweet potato wedges.

  • C: Yeah. That is a bad day.

  • C: Make sure Jessica doesn't faint, or if she does, that she's, you know,

  • somewhere safe.

  • J: Or you call my mum when I take an overdose of painkillers.

  • C: Oh, my God, that was a day.

  • C: But, yeah, that's a bad day

  • and on a good day we are out and about filming,

  • replying to emails,

  • I make all the phone calls for obvious reasons.

  • I'm setting up the cameras and the lights.

  • J: Yup.

  • J: 'Cause it would take me like five times as much energy.

  • You do all the volume stuff.

  • C: For the ones that have been asking these questions,

  • I do audio and sound on the videos.

  • J: "How does the deaf girl know when to put the music on and off?"

  • J: Although, it is possible to edit visually.

  • I should make a video on that.

  • C: Yeah, she actually does edit through the waves

  • J: Yeah. And you're also my best friend!

  • C: Yeah, that too.

  • Then we move onto the friend part.

  • J: Aww.

  • C: We actually hang out at the weekends and it's a lot of fun and all of that.

  • C: Like, we genuinely like each other.

  • Which is very helpful when you need someone to, you know,

  • bring you the sick bucket - you might as well be close.

  • No.

  • [Laughing]

  • No.

  • Oh, I love The Sims.

  • OK, what should we do? I feel like we should set--we should set a challenge.

  • A challenge seems right.

  • I'm gonna show you--right, this is my little neighbourhood

  • that I have created.

  • It's called Rusland

  • because my grandparents used to live in a place called Rusland Valley in the Lake District

  • and I love it.

  • What are we going to do?

  • I will admit: normally I tend to play with all of the...

  • all of the cheat codes.

  • So let's not do that today. Let's not do that.

  • I like to start my neighbourhoods with not much, and then build up.

  • So I start with the founding people

  • and the founding places.

  • And then over here.

  • It's supposed to be Kellgren-Fozard

  • but I couldn't do that.

  • I need to re-name them.

  • Look, it's us!

  • There you go. Aww, look at her cute little face!

  • She looks like a mini Claudia.

  • Also, yes, you are noticing the, er,

  • the Tombstone of Life and Death here.

  • Right, so, I'm going to give you a little house tour to start with.

  • Here is my house. I believe I stole it from another neighbourhood.

  • [Evil laugh]

  • Decked it out.

  • Got some nice little benches out here in our little gazebo.

  • Lovely.

  • Aw, look, it's so pretty.

  • This is our little art balcony.

  • Where we will stand, and paint.

  • That's actually something I'd like to have in real life.

  • A balcony with some--just some easels set up, you know.

  • Rounded sculpture in the garden there.

  • OK, let's go from the bottom up.

  • So, we have our lovely hallway here

  • where we enter.

  • We've got the phone; we've got dog leads.

  • Cutest thing.

  • I love having the pets. So cute.

  • We should probably get Claudia off the loo, but...

  • That's fine.

  • She'll just be there for now.

  • Oh well.

  • We've got the dining room.

  • Dining area, really. We've got a bar in it.

  • There's a sound system for when we feel like a boogie.

  • Got a study in here.

  • You know, bathroom, where Claudia is.

  • Up the stairs.

  • We've got...a kind of games room. It's more of a hang out space.

  • And then there's another bathroom.

  • Here, we've got a bedroom

  • that's going to go to one of my--one of my children.

  • One of them who apparently is a bit more...modern?

  • Than I am.

  • So you come up the stairs again to this landing.

  • Beautiful bathroom. It's really dark.

  • Because sometimes you need darkness to [?]

  • A quite a teenage bedroom.

  • I thought. Quite liked that.

  • Got the teenage-y chair. Drum set.

  • Posters stuck on the wall with tape.

  • Let's find a suitably teenage-looking bedside lamp.

  • Mm, I'm gonna get a desk lamp.

  • That's pretty chilling out.

  • "Chilling out" - so not cool.

  • Er, what about a basic lamp?

  • There's a lava lamp.

  • Oh, yeah, OK. Full on hula dancing

  • lamp.

  • And then this is the master bedroom in here

  • which, I'm afraid, is where Jessica's going to have to walk up to.

  • Back we go.

  • Jessica, potty train Thelma. [?]

  • "Serve lunch"

  • Oh, is that all you can do?

  • I thought you were fairly progressed on this.

  • Right, you can make some lunch meat sandwiches

  • and you can eat them, and then you can study cooking, Claudia.

  • This must really take forever if you can't--

  • if you can't just cheat and press on the bladder bar; make her need to go again.

  • Oh, no, Tilly's starving.

  • Oh, hello. The actual girl in question.

  • Hi.

  • Hi, hi. I am just making you a little pet bed.

  • Oh, good. Look at her learning.

  • That is the important thing.

  • That she learns.

  • Is it weird to make a version of yourself in The Sims and then play it?

  • But also make versions of people that you know.

  • Is that weird or is it normal?

  • The Sims seems so much--[laughing]

  • The Sims seems so much less fun without cheat codes.

  • Man.

  • My God, The Sims is really slow when you can't cheat.

  • Aw, look, she's crying.

  • Waking everyone up.

  • [Laughs]

  • Oh, Claudia looks very bored of this whole potty training experience.

  • You know, the thing is: I absolutely love The Sims and

  • I've been playing it since...since I was eleven, probably?

  • And I never play it without the cheat codes.

  • Don't know why I decided to do that now.

  • Let's just go back to cheat codes, because why not?

  • Why not indeed.

  • When we were little, my brother and I were only allowed to get

  • computer games that were in some way educational
