Hanging at 35 York Avenue

I dreamt me and Yu Lee were living at my childhood home in Slough, and Mum and Richard were visiting us. For some reason we were all in the shed at the bottom of the garden.

It was time to go back to the house so we made our way up the garden path, but Richard said he wanted to stay behind and to go on without him, presumably so that he could have a cigarette.

A little while later Yu Lee and Mum were in the living room talking and I was in the kitchen. I was thinking that Richard had been a while and I looked out of the window, into the shed window. I suddenly realised I could see Richard's legs dangling in front of the window and that had hung himself!

I shouted to the others to come quickly and ran up the garden to the shed. I went inside I grabbed hold of his legs to try to relieve the tension on his neck. That was the last thing I remember before waking up.

Toilet Mishaps at Yoga Lessons

I dreamt that I was having a yoga lesson. It was in a school, and none of the students were there because of the Covid lockdown.

I arrived in the classroom and I don't remember any other people being there apart from the teacher who was a woman who looked about 60 years old. I told her I needed to go to the bathroom and she pointed me in the right direction but it took me a while to find them.

When I found the toilet it was very weird. It was open and from the toilet I could see (and be seen by) a table where a man and woman were eating their lunch! I left and looked for another toilet but in the end I returned as I had no other option.

I went to pee but then I realised I actually needed to poo and sat down on a toilet in clear view of the table. I was doing my business and it was a lot so I thought I'd better flush halfway through to avoid blocking it. I flushed while I was sitting on the toilet and suddenly I felt very wet. I looked down and the toilet was overflowing and there was shit all over my legs and trousers.

Lucid Triple Dream

Lucid Dream (L4)

I don't know for sure if this was one dream with a couple of false awakenings or a series of dreams. I think in retrospect it was probably just one dream.

I was in a room and trying to open a door, but the door was really weird. I eventually got it to open but it opened from the wrong side, i.e. the side with the handle was attached to the door frame and the hinge side swung towards me.

I thought it was odd and closed the door, and tried to open it again. At first it wouldn't open but then I realised it would open from the correct side this time. I closed and opened the door another couple of times and each time it would alternate pivoting from the hinge side or the handle side.

I realised this was not right and that the only explanation was that I was dreaming!

I became lucid but immediately woke up. I had the usual "that was weird" thoughts and wend back to sleep.

I drifted straight into a dream and realised pretty much straight away that I was dreaming again, but again I woke up straight away. "Wow twice in one night!"

I fell asleep quickly for the third time and realised I was dreaming again but this time I managed to hold onto it. I don't remember exactly what I did but I'm sure I was very focused on staying in the dream and did something like rubbing my hands or touching something to try to stay connected.

The rest of my memory is quite hazy. I think I pretty much did the usual routine of whizzing around, flying and trying to contain my excitement.

At one point I was flying down a street and I noticed a side alley with a brick wall. I stopped for a while at the bricks and studied them, noticing how detailed and realistic they were. This is not the first time I've done this in a lucid dream and it always amazes me how detailed the environment is that my brain is creating.

I went back to flying around and I don't think much of note really happened. I noticed the environment fading to white and the weird feelings you normally get as the dream collapses. This time I woke up for real!

Weird Hotel

I dreamt I was in some kind of hotel with many rooms and lots of people. Part of the hotel was a kind of hall with lots of bars and restaurants off of it, and in the middle there was a piano, but instead of the normal piano keyboard it had a weird grid of keys. A (very pretty) lady was playing the piano and singing and I watched for a while.

Some time later I somehow ended up with a slot at the piano, playing in front of the crowd, and I had to improvise a piece with piano backing and a sung melody. I sat down at the piano and looked at the weird grid of keys and pressed a few buttons, but I couldn't figure out how the notes worked. I tried playing notes together that were next to each other, and diagonal from each other. In the end I figured out how to play some chords, but I had no idea what they were!

The lady who was singing earlier came over and showed me a few things and then offered to sing the first song, so I improvised some chords and she sang over it. After a few minutes she left and I was on my own and basically made a fool of myself in front of everyone. Eventually I got up and left and everyone was looking at me.

I headed out to another part of the hotel and someone closed the door behind me. I was in a room with lots of people, and after a minute or two I realised this was someone's wedding reception. I tried to open the door to leave but it was lost.

I explored this part of the hotel, pushing through crowds of people and just trying to find a way out but the layout was confusing, like a labyrinth of small rooms and corridors. I woke up without ever managing to find my way out!

Pops' Internet

Tags: Pops Yu Lee

In my dream Nan and Pops were both still alive.

One day I received a weird email from my Pops. I don't remember the exact content of the email but it sounded very much like he was trying to say something without directly saying it, and in the end the email was mostly meaningless. He signed off with the following:

This is my attempt at a throwaway.

Pops

I looked at the email address the the message was from and it was an address with lots of random letters in it so I thought the last sentence made sense.

A little while later me and Yu Lee decided to go out for a walk and we thought we might as well walk to their house and see if they were about. When we got to their road they were walking with a (surprisingly large) group of other old people. We all went back to their house and they were having some kind of gathering.

I chatted to my Pops and he told me that a lot of his friends were having problems with their internet. He said the internet companies were targeting old people and charging them extra for expensive services while at the same time giving them a service that was a lot cheaper to run and was a lot slower. He didn't want his internet speed to be throttled back so he sent me the email in code because he thought they might intercept his email and realise that he was an old man and try to scam him.

Trying to Eat Out

Tags: Yu Lee

This was a very vivid dream.

Pizza Express

The first thing I remember is arriving at Pizza Express, although it was a different Pizza Express to the one we normally go to. Link wasn't with us, and I remember thinking that he was sleeping at home, but it was ok because we'd brought the baby monitor with us!

We ordered our food, and mine arrived, but Yu Lee received the wrong pizza. She sent hers back and I ate mine.

After quite a long wait Yu Lee still hadn't received her food, so she got the waitress' attention and asked where her food was. The waitress apologised and disappeared back into the kitchen.

A few minutes later a lesbian looking woman with short hair arrived at our table with a plate of food. She was not dressed like the other waitresses, and explained that she works in the kitchen, and that the waitress hadn't written her order down on the right slip of paper and so it had been forgotten. She was very apologetic and spoke a lot less eloquently than the serving staff, and had a very working class way about her speech.

The lady put the plate down in front of Yu Lee, and it had a large flatbread pocket filled with pizza topping on it. Yu Lee started to explain that this also wasn't quite right, and the lady's face expression changed as if to say "what's wrong now?" Yu Lee explained that she'd ordered the ham and cheese pizza (it had a funny Italian name that I don't remember), but this is not a pizza. The lady told her that the waitress didn't specify whether it was the normal pizza or the wrap so she just guessed. The lady went back into the kitchen with the plate of food.

After the lady left again I studied the menu and there was no flatbread option for the cheese and ham pizza.

After waiting again for a while, another plate of food turned up. This time it had 2 large slices of pizza on it, but had very little toppings and no cheese. Yu Lee was getting very fed up now and when she complained that this still wasn't right the waiting staff were expecting it and took it straight away again without any kind of argument.

Eventually another lady came out who turned out to be some kind of manager. She apologised and gave Yu Lee a cheque for the price of her half of the order. It was becoming clear to us that they were not capable of producing the correct dish for Yu Lee and so we accepted the refund and left.

The Café

We were outside now and it was dark. I had taken my shoes off in the restaurant, and was now taking shoes out of my bag and struggling to put them on in the dark, while we talked about where we could go to get Yu Lee some food. I was very aware that Link had been at home on his own for a while, so I suggested that we needed to go somewhere that was going to be quick. Yu Lee said she knew a cafe so we decided to head over there.

By this point I'd managed to get my left shoe on and was fumbling in my bag, trying to find the other one. I pull out another left shoe, and continued my search, and finally found another shoe and took a long time clumsily putting it on. A short while later, under a streetlight, I realised I had two left shoes on, but we decided to head to the cafe and try to rectify it there where there was more light.

When we got to the cafe, it was a weird place which only had outdoor seating. It was dark outside, but the cafe was adequately lit so we decided to stay.

Yu Lee went up to the man at the till and asked about ordering food and he assured her that the kitchen was still open. He also said we should talk to his wife about the menu, and then he called her over.

We were sitting at a table now, and the man's wife was talking to us. The menu was really complicated, and as she was explaining it to us she kept getting sidetracked. She asked where we were from and I said that originally my wife was from London, and she said "right, so after living in London you moved to Australia or Canada?"

The conversation was getting weird and the lady had a very uncomfortable, rambly way of talking where she would excitedly go of on tangents and never get to the point she'd set out to make.

Yu Lee said something about how her mum was from Malaysia and the woman got really excited and started going on about how in Malaysia they were really good with needles. She then pulled what looked like a small knitting needle out of her pocket and stuck it through her wrist and started to wiggle it about!

Yu Lee was speechless, and we ended the conversation as quickly as possible and left without ever ordering any food.

The Pub

After we left the cafe we decided to go to a nearby pub. Neither of us had every been there before, and when we got inside it was very noisy and smokey, and lots of people were smoking. The place stunk of old spilled beer.

We made our way to the bar and Yu Lee told me she didn't know what to order. I told her to just ask if they are still doing food and then order a burger. When the lady at the bar asked what we wanted Yu Lee said "Can I have a burger a chips please?"

I added that we wanted take-away and the lady took our money and moved on to the next customer. A person standing on our side of the bar handed Yu Lee a brown paper bag and said it was to put her food in.

We waiting for a little while. Although it was loud and smelly, the people the pub were entertaining to watch and it was actually quite fun. At one point someone started talking to us and asking about Link, and I got confused about whether he was 24 years or 24 months old (in real life he is 15 months old),

After a short wait, Yu Lee's food came out. She opened up the burger and there was no cheese inside, so she got the barmaid's attention and asked her more cheese. Yu Lee was obviously getting fed up by this point and she was quite rude about it. I remember thinking that she should be careful otherwise they may spit in her food!

The burger had initially come out of the kitchen quite quickly, but now that we were waiting for the cheese it was taking a long time. Whilst we were waiting my alarm went off and the dream ended without Yu Lee ever getting anything to eat!

Richard is Ill

Tags: Mum Richard

I dreamt that my stepdad, Richard, had been diagnosed with cancer, and my mum was caring for him. I remember one segment of the dream immediately before I woke up.

In my dream, Mum and Richard lived in a much larger, grander house than they do in real life. There was a mezzanine floor above my mum's bedroom and I was standing on it, leaning over the railing, looking down at my mum's bed.

The bed was made with completely white sheets, and they were wet and yellowed. My mum was stripping off the old bed sheets and putting on new ones.

A little later I was speaking with my mum, and she told me how she had tried to put Richard on the bed, but his leg had gotten tangled round a telephone cord and it had been very awkward. Just as she was about to get him properly on the bed he had wet himself. After that he'd gone off for some kind of treatment.

Busy Restaurant

I don't remember who I was with in the dream, but I went out for dinner in a very fancy restaurant. The food was either Greek or Turkish.

When we got there the place was very busy. We'd booked a table and the waiter lead us through a series of rooms packed with diners to a small table at the back. We ordered our food and waited for it to arrive.

After a while the started came out and we at it quickly because we were starving. After that we waited and waited, but an hour had passed and our main course was nowhere to be seen. The person I was with said they'd had enough and it was time to leave. We left the restaurant and paid for our starters on the way out.

I remember thinking that there were very few staff for such an enormous restaurant.

Brain Augmentation

I don't remember the narrative of this dream, but I do remember the subject of the dream.

I dreamt that someone was developing a type of brain augmentation. I don't remember all of the details, but it involved taking some kind of medication, and then going through a training process where your brain was adapted to make use of the augmentation.

The treatment was experimental, and normally given to patients in a very controlled environment by a whole team of people. I wasn't allowed to take the treatment in the conventional way, but I knew someone who worked with this treatment and they acquired some for me and I took it myself.

A large part of the dream was me struggling with the after effects of the medication. It definitely had a profound effect on my mind, and it was very uncomfortable and unpleasant. After dealing with this for a long time I was starting to despair, and feeling that I had permanently damaged my brain.

Towards the end of the dream, I got selected to take part in the procedure. The problem was that I'd already taken the medication in a way that I wasn't supposed to, and I was trying to work out how to get the part of the treatment I needed without having to divulge the fact that I'd already taken it illegally.

The last thing I remember was being in a room with lots of chairs, possibly a waiting room. Someone else who was waiting was complaining that they had a massive headache, and that it was becoming unbearable. One of the other people who had received the treatment was also there and offered their help.

The person with the augmentation concentrated on the man with the headache, and visualised a red cloud being drawn out of his head and into a deep, dark hole. I could see his visualisation, and suddenly realised that the augmentation was working and I had in fact received some new capabilities.

The man with the headache was immediately cured and felt fine.

I woke up feeling somewhat disturbed.

No Brakes

I don't remember much of this dream, but I do remember the end of it.

I was in the car, and I'd been driving around and kept noticing that I was going a bit faster than intended. The passenger in the car kept having a go at me for driving too fast and I just put it down to my own incompetence.

Later on, I was at a junction in a complicated bit of road, with different lanes and side roads going off in all directions. I approached a red light, and tried to stop, but realised that the breaks weren't working. I even tried pulling up the handbrake but that didn't work either. I suddenly realised that it wasn't due my carelessness that I'd been driving a bit fast, but that the brakes has been getting worse and worse all day.

I went through the red light, and luckily there weren't many other cars around. I headed for the closest exit, so that I could drive down a side road and let the car come to a stop.
