Mosquito terror

Posted on

So there I was, fast asleep, in real life and this dream.

Until a mosquito woke me up! (This happened in real life.)

I spent hours hunting the damn thing, only to hear another one in the room, and another, and another, and another. (Pretty sure this was real life, but may have been exaggerated by dream.)

Eventually, I decided they were coming in through the crack under the bedroom door, so decided to go at them with a baseball bat as they entered. (Dream.)

Serious marathon running

Posted on

At 8 months pregnant, I was running the Two Oceans.

Along the way, I bumped into Michaela and Liz, who were also running. (They were both doing the Ultra.)

They asked which distance I was doing, and I didn’t know, because I’d been fast asleep while running for the last five hours! I figured I must have been doing the Ultra (56 km) because the cut-off time for the half marathon is three hours.
(Realistically, 8 months pregnant or not, I don’t think it would take me less than five hours to run a half marathon. )

Whirling Dervishes

Posted on

Okay, bear with me, this is complicated… I dreamt there were loads of Whirling Dervishes in our house – the house was FULL of them, and there was no space for anything else. Then, in the dream, I realised it was a dream and tried to make a mental note to remember this in the morning so I could draw it. (I make these mental notes often, with limited success.)

Then later, in a DIFFERENT dream, I woke up and remembered that I’d dreamt something interesting, so I looked next to the bed, and found a paper plate that I’d written “Whirling Dervishes” on. Kind of Inception, perhaps?

Anyway, a friend (Hi Lesley!) was asking how I remember dreams, and whether I jot down notes when I wake up, and it seems I jot down notes while I’m still dreaming!
