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.

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.

Our Old Next Door Neighbour, Elavators at Work, Purple Flowers

Semi-Lucid Dream (L1)

I don't know what time this dream happened because the room I was sleeping in didn't have a clock in it. I felt like I'd been asleep for quite a long time, and it was still completely dark outside.

I remember three separate scenes from my dream.

The first thing I remember was visiting my mum, and Sue, our next door neighbour from when we were kids was also visiting. I got the impression that she'd just turned up before I got there.

I sat in the living room with my mum and Sue for a bit while they chatted, but then I realised I was hungry and asked Mum if she minded if I made something to eat. She said that was fine and I asked if they wanted any. Mum seemed a bit awkward that I was making food at a weird time, and she was asking me what I was going to make, and I explained that I was going to make something half way between a snack and dinner. Eventually they agreed to have some.

I went to the kitchen and started preparing a quite elaborate snack for the three of us. I don't remember what it was any more, but it had lots of ingredients and was not the usual kind of thing you would have for a snack.

The next thing I remember is being at "work". It was a large building with a slightly futuristic feeling to it, and I was with two other people. I wanted to go somewhere with one of the other people, but the third person was tagging along and trying to get in on our outing. I kept trying to ditch this person subtly and without being rude but it was starting to get difficult as they were quite persistent. They obviously knew I didn't want them to come because they were trying to come with us without directly asking if they could come.

Eventually we came to an elevator which would lead us out of the building, and as luck would have it this annoying person didn't have security clearance to use the elevator. I told them that we would take this elevator, and if they wanted to get out they would have to walk all the way back through a series of corridors and use the elevator that they had access to, then walk all the way out to where this one was on the ground floor.

Eventually they agreed to leave on their own and we'd managed to escape this person.

When we got outside we went to some kind of gardens. I remember very little about the gardens as I wasn't there for long before waking, but the entrance had a path going forward between two high, thick hedges, and at the end of the path was another hedge with a path off to the left and right. It looked just like the entrance to a hedge maze.

As we walked along this first section of path, I realised how bright and vivid the green of the hedge was. I looked more closely and there were large purple flowers in amongst the leaves. The purple of the flowers was stunning and other-worldly, and the they contrasted with the green of the vegetation in a way that is indescribable.

At this point I realised that this wasn't real, and that I must be in a dream. Thoughts started rushing through my head about what I should do now that I was aware I was in the dream world, but almost instantly things began to fade and I desperately tried to do everything I could to stay there.

I woke up in my bed with my arms and legs frantically moving.

Mum's Credit Rating

Tags: Mum

I don't remember a lot of the details of this dream, but I was talking to my mum about her financial situation. She has some crazy idea about paying for something, but said that it would mean missing a mortgage payment.

The main part of the dream that I remember is being very frustrated and telling here (repeatedly) "Whatever you do, don't miss a mortgage payment!"

As usual, Mum was being stubborn and didn't seem to agree...

New School / Peeing Vinagre

Tags: Mum

I dreamt that I was still living at home with my mum (in our old house in Slough), and I was at the point where I'd just finished one school and needed to start the next. We'd been applying to different schools but there was one that was much better than the rest.

We received a letter saying that I hadn't gotten into the good school. At this point I basically gave up and tried to get used to the fact that I was going to the crappy school, but Mum wanted to call the school and try to get them to change their mind. I argued with her that it was a waste of time, and at one point I even got quite annoyed with her, but she didn't listen and spent a while making phone calls.

I went upstairs to my room and could hear my mum on the phone downstairs. After quite a long time she called up to me that it worked and they'd offered me a place! I felt relieved.

We had a workman in the house, doing some kind of building work. It was about 8 o'clock in the evening so I don't know why he was still there. The builder was doing something in one of the upstairs rooms, and had loads of tools and materials in Bob's bedroom, but I think he was doing some work in the bathroom.

I went downstairs and talked to Mum. She was in the middle of ordering me a new bed, and she said that as I'd gotten into the good school after all, I'd be needing a different bed instead. I chose the one that I wanted and we ordered it. I'm pretty sure we were looking in a printed catalogue so I have no idea how she ordered it.

A few minutes later the door went and I answered it. The delivery man handed me a package full of screws and nuts and bolts, and I realised it was the hardware for my new bed. I couldn't understand how it had gotten here so quick.

I needed to pee so I went upstairs, but for some reason, instead of going into the bathroom I went into Bob's bedroom. There was a cardboard container on the floor that had previously been filled with screws or something, that the builder had left behind. It was made out of the same kind of material as a paper cup and looked pretty waterproof so I decided to pee into it. I only peed a little bit, and it burned on the way out, and my urine was dark brown. I stopped even though I wasn't really finished and took the container to the bathroom. As I poured it into the toilet it fizzed and I realised it was because it was very acidic!

I peed some more into the toilet and it was really uncomfortable because of the burning sensation. As I continued, the urine fizzed some more in the toilet. I realised that this wasn't normal and went downstairs to tell Mum, but then I woke up and my dream ended.

Birds, Cats, Ex-girlfriends...

I am upstairs in my bedroom, but it is not my current house. I'm pretty sure my mum is with me and we are looking out of the window.

In the distance we see a red kite swoop down at something, but then it flies back off out of site. We are talking about the red kite when all of a sudden it appears again.

This time a bird is flying past the window, less than a metre away from it, when all of a sudden the kite swoops down and grabs it in its claws. It then pecks at the bird and starts to eat it. I'm pretty sure it was hovering outside the window for a while when it was doing doing this, although I realise that's probably impossible.

Me and Mum look at each other and are both excited to have seen a kite taking another bird from so close.

There's an extension underneath the window, and the next thing we see is a cat walking along the extension towards the window. There's something wrong with the cat though, and it looks sick. It has clumps of fir missing and it's face is all messed up and weeping with puss. The cat walks into the window a couple of times and leaves loose hairs and puss all over the window before staggering off.

The next thing I remember is it being a while later and I'm walking somewhere. I walk over a bridge and suddenly I see Lauryn's dad walking in the opposite direction, and he sees me and comes over to say hello. We talk for a while and I tell him about the cat at the window, and ask his advice about how I can persuade the cat not to come near my window. He basically tells me the easiest way would be to shoot it with an air rifle, but that it might kill the cat so I might not want to do that.

I ask him how Lauryn is and he says that she's in some kind of trouble and that she needs me, and that I should go and find her. He never says exactly what's wrong but I get the feeling it is something to do with her living situation, more like she's not happy rather than being in any kind of danger.

A while later I find Lauryn in the street. She's wearing a fancy dress and looks stunning. I talk to her for a while and she gives me an awkward hug. She tells me that she's going to a party and that it's good to see me, and says we should meet up again and talk.

Ben Drinking

Tags: Ben Tyler Mum

I dreamt that I was back at my mum's house at 35 York Avenue. My mum was somewhere around the house, possibly in the kitchen, and I was in the living room with Ben. Ben was drinking something alcoholic.

At one point Ben was sick a little bit in his mouth, but it wasn't like normal vomit: there was a big lump of something hard and it was poking out of his mouth a little bit. He put his finger up to his mouth and pushed it back in and swallowed it. I was pretty disgusted by this, and my mum came in just afterwards, so I decided to leave Ben in the living room with my mum and go up to my room before things got any worse.

I'd only been in my room for a couple of minutes when I heard him being sick. Somehow I knew he'd been sick on the ceiling…

Something's Wrong

Tags: Mum Yu Lee

I'm pretty sure for the whole of this dream I am at my mum's house at 35 York Avenue (Slough).

Pipe Organ

This part of the dream is a little hazy. Yu Lee is showing me a video of her work (she still works at Babraham in the dream). I'm not 100% sure why she is showing me, but I think it's supposed to be funny or ironic.

In the video, Yu Lee is playing a tune on a keyboard. It looks like a piano, but as soon as she starts playing I realise that it is some kind of organ. The camera zooms out a little and I can see a load of metal pipes coming out of the top of the organ, and as the camera zooms out further and begins to rise it becomes apparent that the pipes are huge.

The camera keeps rising until it is quite high, and I can only guess that the organ is at the base of a tower. The camera rises past a platform which the pipes pass through, and on the top the pipes end in crude metal figures that look half way between scarecrows and robots. The pipes lead into the characters so that they sing when the pipes are playing.

The video ends and I comment on it, and then we are all alone in silence in my mum's house.


I'm not sure what happened exactly, but now I am upset and need my mum for something, so I call her and speak to her on the phone. It feels like some kind of crisis is happening, although I think it may all be in my head.

I speak to Mum on the phone for a while and she tells me that she'll come back home. She says that she was only staying away for a while and that if we need her she'll come back right away.

Some time passes before Mum gets home, and when she does she goes straight to the kitchen and starts doing something. I approach her and can see straight away that she's crying. I ask her what the matter is, and she says "I'm really sorry but I can't come back yet. I'm here now but I'm going to go soon. I'm just not ready to come back yet. Sorry."

We talk for a while, and I tell her that she doesn't have to come back to his particular house, that we could move somewhere else close by, but she says that she needs the house to be around the corner from her work.

Dijon Chicken

In my dream, I had invited Mum, Richard, Bob and Steph over for dinner after work on Friday. It was summer, and we were going to sit outside in the sun and have a few drinks and something to eat. For dinner I'd planned to make chicken in a Dijon mustard sauce, fried tomatoes and salad.

I'd spoken to mum on the phone that day, and then she was the first to arrive. I was dishing out the food but Mum was the only one who'd turned up at that point. Mum said Richard would be there soon but I hadn't heard anything from Bob and Steph, so I sent Bob a text message saying "Where are you?"

A little while later we managed to get hold of Richard on the phone and he seemed to be a bit confused and for some reason thought that we were due to be meeting up the next day. All of a sudden Mum realised the problem and said "It's only Thursday today!" It turned out that I had lost track of the day and thought it was Friday already, and because I was on the phone to Mum earlier she thought it was Friday too.

Richard told me that he would be over soon, and I texted Bob and said "Don't worry, I got the day wrong. See you tomorrow."

A while later Richard still hadn't turned up and I was getting stressed because the food was already dished up and going cold. Me and Mum were trying to work out the best way to heat it all up again as it had loads of salad on the plates, so I couldn't just put the whole thing in the microwave. We decided it would be best to take the fried tomato and chicken off of the plate, microwave it, and transfer it back onto the plate.

As we started to move things off of the plates Richard turned up. I told him what we were doing and he said "I would just leave the chicken cold if I were you." He told me that Dijon chicken is normally served cold as it is mayonnaise-based, but I told him that this was a special recipe and was different. I asked him to taste it so he got a spoon and tasted a little bit of the chicken. He said "it's fine," and I put the plates of food back on the table as they were.

Leaving my Work and Moving to Cambridge

Tags: Mum

In my dream I was still working at WorldPay, but WorldPay is in Slough and my mum was living in Cambridge. I was staying with my mum who was living in an enormous house and sharing it with some other people, and I only had a couple of days left at WorldPay.

I remember it was the morning, and I was supposed to have breakfast and then drive back to Slough to go to work. For some reason, I kept on getting delayed and was going to be very late. We were talking about what I was going to do and I was saying that maybe I'd just leave work early anyway, despite arriving so late.

The main thing I seemed to be concerned about was getting back in time for a nap! Mum was saying that I could take the keys to York Avenue and sleep there if I wanted to, but I said that I didn't want to and would prefer to just come back to Cambridge and sleep here.

I remember saying "Everyone else goes for a beer every Friday lunchtime and takes an extra hour on their lunch break, but I don't, so I work an extra hour to each of them. I'm entitled to leave early if I want to because I've worked extra. Well maybe 'entitled' is not the right word, but you know what I mean."

Before I left to go to work I needed to go to the toilet, so I went into the bathroom but one of the other ladies that shared the house with Mum (who had some small children) was in there. I looked at her and she was just standing there, and she said "Don't mind me" and pointed to the toilet, signalling that I should just go ahead and use it.

I walked up to the toilet and it was really weird. It was made of plastic, and didn't seem to be plumbed into anything. I remember thinking that I wasn't sure if it was a toilet or a potty, but it was the shape of a real toilet and had a flush and a seat, it was just a bit smaller and made of plastic. Also, the bathroom didn't look like a bathroom at all, and was a large carpeted room with no sink or bath, and just this small plastic toilet at one end.

I unzipped and started going to the toilet, and then I started to get an erection. I remember thinking "Why does this have to happen when I'm peeing with the lady in the same room as me?" and trying to bend over forwards so that I could aim it in the toilet. It was getting worse and I had to lean right forward and lean on the wall to keep peeing in the bowl.

The lady asked me if I was alright (I guess she didn't know why I was bending forward like that) and I said "yes," but then the door opened and one of my friends came in and I felt really embarrassed.
