I tend to have dreams about real people, places and things. Very boring really apart from the occasional "flight of fancy" dream to liven things up a bit.

Been beautifully cool today and I've been gardening for most of it ... looks much tidier out there now.

Last night's dreams involved my (real world) sister.

It wasn't controversial or distressing.

What a shame, that with all that freedom to be outrageous without responsibility in our dreams, that so many of us tend to behave much as we do in ordinary daytime life. Model citizens perhaps, used to behaving ourselves in a civilised manner while fully awake, and unable to throw off the constraints even in our subconscious dreamtime.

I bet the bad boys and bad girls have much more fun in their dreams ...

I never claimed that my dreams are always conservative.
Sometimes the concepts are outrageous and it's only when I reflect on the experience that I realise that it was just a dream.

I try to have fanciful dreams by thinking about something interesting while falling asleep during selected sleep cycles. Sometimes it works but invariably my actions in the dreams are based on what I would do in real life and seem to usually be all about solving problems of one sort or another.

My cocktail of medication (including Mirtazapine and Temazepam) ensures a melody of lucid dreams.

None are (so far) unpleasant or disturbing, but many are 'fantastic' in the basic sense.

I remember many many years ago me mum was given and took sleeping tablets,she was away at her sisters so I decided in the nature of scientific enquiery to try one,so took one lay down on me bunk and closed me eyes only to open them immediately ten hours later still lying flat on me back, I never sleep on me back,dunno what they were but I suspect summat potent back then,one learned to curb ones scientific curiosity.

Morning folks. The fog is clearing leaving the prospect of another sun-blest day. According to the local weather-guesseress, it looks like it will continue for a few days to come. Something Ms Warmfronts has just confirmed.

We are expecting a fairly warm 30 degrees C tomorrow. Obviously the weather is practicing for summer ... one does not approve and one blames that little Iberian person who fails every year to keep that big yellow thing over on his side of the planet.

Set off on the lawn tractor this morning for what was hopefully the last cut it needed this year (and ever for me as we move to a new home in a month).
After about 50mtrs it slewed to the left and the steering went limp. A ball joint had failed on the steering arm and I will have to waste half a day sourcing and fitting a new part.
Sods law determined that it happened half an hour before the spares shop shuts for its two hour lunch and I ran out of time!

My garden is quite large, and I have my workshop in one corner, the doorway to the workshop is 6ft X 3ft, why when I'm in there and the door is open on warm days such as today, and with with a large garden for the buggahs to fly around does every type of bee, wasp, fly, blue bottle etc, find such a small area as the door way to the workshop, fly in and then buzz around in there, and not find the door again.

What a cow of a thing to happen.

How is your wife, victor tango? Nothing too serious, I hope? Good that your sister was able to come and share the worrying with you and you weren't on your own.
