A Weird Night

With so much wet and windy weather there is not much to report recently.

Last night was one of the weirdest I have had for many a long year.

1) Woken up apparently to the sound of Penny yelping. Got up to find her sleeping peacefully.

2) Later: Weird dream / nightmare. Mother comes in my bedroom. Ignores me and walks past to stare at a fireplace just past the end of the bed. She keeps bending and looks as though she is examining something but I can't see what. I wake up screaming.

3) Still later: Dream father comes in my bedroom. Ignores me and climbs a dusty wooden staircase to a dark doorway. He looks furtive as he checks to see if anyone is watching before slowly opening the door. I wake up sweating.

4) Even later: Wake to the apparent muffled sound of something bouncing off the roof and landing in the gravel in the front garden. Get up again to check. Nothing seen.

I very rarely remember any dreams so two vivid weird ones in one night was disconcerting to say the least. Both my parents passed away many years ago. Needless to say the fireplace, staircase and door do not exist in real life.

To bring things back to normality here is a frog I disturbed a few days ago:

  2. Very unsettling. I usually have quite vivid dreams; fortunately most are fun and adventure filled. But now and again a disturbing one comes along. Sleep well tonight!

    1. Wilma: Those generated such a feeling of something evil. Took me all yesterday to get over it. Fortunately last night was completely uneventful.

  3. Did you eat strong cheese or something made with mushrooms before retiring. These two things always make me dream.

    1. Weaver: No supper, rarely bother with it. Nothing eaten which was out of my normal range of meals.
