Dreams... or... Nightmares?

I have had this same dream now five times. Not night after night, but at regular intervals

In the dream I am looking at the computer or it could even be a television screen and everything is quite normal. But then very suddenly everything in front of me either turns black or into another dull colour and I wake up with a start. It happened last night and this time the images changed to sepia.

My husband usually awakens when I gasp out loud. But last night I just told him it was the stupid dream again.

Nevertheless, I must say, I am beginning to get a little alarmed at how often this same dream is recurring and wondered whether anyone out there had any ideas. However, if you are going to tell me that I am about to die or anything like that, then don't bother. That was my first thought. But then, I told myself not to be so stupid. Besides, I'm not ready to go yet. There are still a few things I want to see before I depart.

For a start I want to be around to see Divorcees.Biz in paperback. Okay, I know it is already on Kindle, but you see I want to hold the book in my hands and tell my four lovely ladies that, together, we did it!  I know they will be as excited as me.

I also want have a couple of more summer breaks - nothing fancy, just a visit to Nidd Hall and Littlecote House.  I bet you were all thinking I wanted to jet off to the USA or to some Holiday hotspot. No I am not so ambitious, something quiet and relaxing is all I want.

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas about these dreams, then let me know.

Have a good day,



  1. It sounds like an anxiety dream, Eileen. I'm sure it isn't any sort of omen, but more likely to be that you're subconsciously worrying about something and now you're worrying about the dream too! Horrible when dreams keep recurring like that though - hope you have sweet dreams from now on x

  2. Thank you, Teresa. It's just I have never had anything like it before. But I am trying to stay positive.
