Default Nightmares before you go to OZ

Can't sleep most nights, last night whilst awake, I could sense the wife was having a nightmare, when she woke crying she told me her mum had died in her dream.
She is very close to her mum who is being brave about the oz thing but you cant help feel that you are doing something that doesnt seem quite right.
I believe the dreaming is a natural process, but migrating takes it on a level.
Don't tell me out of a dream of death it usually means a birth on the way, I think i will go & have me tubes tied or something

Had one last night (yawn yawn...) about going to Aus... we were having to plan at least 3 stops for a reckie, because of the kids, but only had about 2 weeks off work. It was all very complicated!

I sleep walk and talk when stressed. Mrs BP has all sorts of strange conversations with me and apparantly I am very suggestable. Fortunatley she is way too tired to bother taking advantage of it.

Sounds like Blim - he often has strange conversations etc. it can be really annoying when you need a good nights kip. The first time it happened was on holiday in Greece, when he kept going on about spiders. Totally freaked me out :scared:

I feel sorry for you and Mrs BP but I remember nothing the next day. I think the one she hates the most is when I walk off with the dooner.

It was at its worst when we got here and job hunting at the MILs. Not sure if it was the MIL or the job hunting.

I think you are OK Mrs DB, although I walk in my sleep ( and have been known to get in my car and start it ) Brissy is a bit of a distance and I would probably wake up before I reached your children!

Not that I would hurt them if I did!

hahaha!!!
I do that too!!
I also, unfortunately, have a conversation with my friend Joanne in my sleep - its usuually what we've chatted about that day over coffee. When I say unfortunately, I inadvertantly let slip about a guy I see in the morning taking the kids to school who asks me out...I once made the mistake of going for a coffee after the school drop and he flirted outrageously!!! So naturally I tell my best friend all about it!!!!!
Then repeated the conversation in my sleep!
Guess who slept on the sofa for a couple of weeks!?

ooops!

sue

Mrs DB - It is OK, that tag on my ankle will keep you safe!!!!


And Sue - I have primed my hubby on several names that may crop up - David (Beckham), Brad (Pitt) and Peirce (Brosnan) to name a few - so I avoid that interrogation in the morning!
