Alice and Ben were playing in the living room and began watching television. Their favourite cartoon came on where a cat is chased constantly by a mouse. The cat was grey and the mouse was brown. The cartoon was comical and had scenes where the cat would almost always hurt itself by trying its hardest to catch the mouse.
The living room was rather messy because Ben and Alice never seemed to like tidying up after themselves very much. Ben ran in to the kitchen and made himself a sandwich and Alice followed. Ben was older than Alice by three years and therefore was obliged to make her a sandwich as well. He filled it with cheese and butter and made both of them squash with just a small amount of squash as directed by their father and mother.
Mother was in the gardening mowing the lawn and father was out with his friend playing tennis. The cartoon ended so they began painting pictures as their next activity. They managed to put the easel up by themselves and get the paint from the highest draw in the oak triple wardrobe. They thoroughly enjoyed painting. Ben would paint scenes of things he’d seen in cartoons to the best of his ability even though his artistic skills weren’t great. Alice used to paint landscapes and cars as these were things which she was most pleased with drawing.
They had lived in the house for all their lives and rather liked it. It had three floors including the ground. Mum and dads room was on the first floor along with Ben’s. Alice’s bedroom was right at the top. Ben was a typical boy and loved adventurous boyish stuff & was sometimes rude and cheeky while Alice always loved things which were pink, calmer play and was always well behaved. While they were at home doing this; dad was playing tennis and beating his friend by one set. The second set was very close and in the end he took that set also. The swings were getting harder and the game was getting more intense. Dad’s friend was now putting full effort in to the match and dad was starting to feel the pressure as the game started to go in favour of dad’s friend. He white washed him in an amazing come back for the third set. The sweat was flying off their arms as they fiercely swung there rackets in attempts to get the ball past the other. The fourth set was seal tight as it eventually went to deuce.
