100WC- Remembering

She lays in bed. Pale face, soft skin, warm at the touch. She doesn’t know- who she is, what she has done. She lays there. The room is silent not even the warmth of the sun dares shine through. The birds tweet- the walls block it all out. All The happiness outside tries sneak through the gaps, but it dies as it reaches the gloominess inside. She lays there fragile as porcelain. She can’t remember- remembering what a challenge just the slightest thing. How she fought, helped all has passed and nothing is remembered. She closes her eyes everything passes away.


About Alice

What do we know about Alice?

We know that Alice so far is 10 years old.

She has lived in Northern China and Saudi Arabia.

She is at the moment in Italy on a skiing holiday.

Alice’s Parents; Her mother Ming likes to paint and her father searches for oil.

Alice has a player (like a phone) She makes drawings and puzzles.

Alice has drawn ‘Brad’.

Brad somehow is connected to Alice.

What don’t know about Alice?

We don’t when Alice’s birthday is .

We don’t know what she looks like, or her parents.

We don’t know if she does home or normal schooling.

We don’t know about any other family she has.

We know don’t know if brad is real or not.

We don’t know if Alice has moved yet.

What can we infer from episodes so far?

I can  infer that after watching episode 1, that Alice’s mum sounds as though she is Chinese because the lived there and her names Ming.

I can  infer that after watching the episodes that Alice’s parents are always lost. Alice says this as her parents are always, fondly enough lost to her. Evidence; Ep 2 she is on holiday, she is in the house by herself, herself.  She says that her parents are always lost as she doesn’t know where they are.

Below is most of my predication for Inanimate Alice Episode 3

School Photos Disaster!

The car stopped suddenly, I just about get out the car to go to school when I realise it’s school photos! I haven’t even done a thing about it! I haven’t got the right uniform on, I haven’t brushed my hair properly and haven’t brang my note in! What am I going to do? Mum said “Quickly get back in and we can get ready like lightning!” I zip into the car, clip myself in like a flash and we drive off. We get to the train tracks.. a coal train! Traffic lights.. red! Were not going to get to school.



This post is a part of my homework for this week. The topic was ‘create a blog post about a pet you have or had’. Mine is about my 7 year old  Labrador/Ridgeback dog Abbey.

The first time I layed eyes on this beautiful dog, was when she was 3. I was so excited my own dog! Well the family’s dog…My mum and Dad first found her in the paper for a give away and thought it was a great idea for them to grab her.

My dad went to her old house to pick her up. She look miserable and depressed. She was quitre scared, when dad took her in the car and drove off. Although Abbey is only 7 she has been through alot.

She was first a companion to an elderly women. Then one day when the women decided she couldnt look after her, shes put her in the paper.

Some lovely owners took her under there arms and was called ‘ Abbeys Owners’. They also had anothrer dog, that was big and scary and would hurt and steel all Abbey’s food!

Thats when her old owners put her in the paper for a give away.  Then yes my dad saved the day .(: Now Abbey is safe with us and enjoys her wonderful home! i love Abbey so very, very  much!


Ellie (:
