Bad Dreams

I don't recall ever having one of those Hollywood bad dreams where you wake up drenched in sweat, sitting up in bed whilst screaming into the night, but this morning I came pretty damn close.
I know I woke up really quickly, eyes flying open to confirm my surroundings were safe. I could feel my heart racing, almost like it had grown to twice its normal size, beating hard against my chest.
I'd always imagined nightmares to be of the variety where big scary monsters tried to eat you.
But I can honestly say I had a nightmare last night.
I still have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach and a dull ache in my chest the way your muscles ache after a workout.

I do have very strange dreams at times. I've had three recently about being attacked by big cats, I need my very own dream interpreter.
I also need a very big hug, as much as I love Mifford, her ability with bear hugs is somewhat limited.

My nightmare isn't getting any space here, the sooner I can forget it the better...

Have you been eating too much cheese?

Sacrilege! There is no such thing as too much cheese!
Oh wait, there IS such a thing as too much blue cheese. More than a crumb is definitely too much.

Hey, poor Flibber! I hope the memory and pain has faded. I prescribe a walk in the elements, followed by hot chocolate, followed by girly chats, laughter and mucho vino! Always works for me! :o) Good luck!

You know, I ran out of cereal and wondered what to do with my milk. I think making a luxurious hot chocolate is the way to go!
I have always, always wished I loved wine... I feel like I'm missing out!
