Behind The Bedroom Door

It's almost dark in the bedroom
I've slept very heavily for a few hours
And I've just woken up with a bit of a start.
I was dreaming that I was at work and I was hiding behind an iv gantry with
One of the Filipino nurses, a girl called Carmen.
There were zombies shuffling around and one seemed to have caught our scent.
and we were convinced thet we were goners 
I am glad I woke up
And I know now just why I have dreamt what I dreamt 
For behind the cottage bedroom door
I can hear the long, deep sniffing of a welsh terrier as he noisily comes to terms that
Daddy,who usually takes him for a walk at this time,...is stinking like an old kipper in bed
in the middle of the day.

  1. It seems to be 'weird dream' season. Both Lady Magnon and myself have had some real oddballs recently.

  7. Strange sounds, smells, and moisture often worry me when I wake from a dream. It takes a moment or two to sort them from reality which is something I can rarely do when completely awake and sober anyway.

  8. "Daddy"?

    I think you mean "Servant"

    And Zombies? I will never see the attraction of zombie tales, which have always seemed the silliest of scenarios to me (perhaps until I meet one).

    1. ...which makes me think the perfect TV show for your tastes as displayed on this blog is surely The Great British Zombie Bake Off

      Just when you thought they were finished they'd be back to bake more

  10. Last night I dreamt that Mary Berry and a presenter from 'Jewellery Maker' were in a 'spaghetti off'. There was a pile of cooked spagehetti on a table and Mary and this other presenter had to see who was quickest at sucking it all up! Gawd knows what was in my mind at the time! Your dream seems comparitively sane!!!

  14. Eating pizza too close to bedtime does that to me.

  15. My morning started at 5am with one oversized orange cat sitting on my head, and another full of beans kitty sitting on top of me.
    They are the most reliable alarm clocks are they not?
    I'm tempted to start watching your Zombie thriller !

  16. I hate waking up to frightening dreams, not a good way to start the day...

    Just don't have the ones where your grandchildren (substitute whatever works there) are free-climbing up the side of a 80 story skyscraper on the outside, sans ropes. The 4 year old clinging by fingertips to ledges, waving at you.
    That's the time I wake at 2am, wondering if I need another 100mg of atenolol.

  19. I love it! I am so glad that there is someone else whose dog calls him Daddy - folk think I am soft.

  20. I hate it when dreams and reality merge, it always gives me the creeps.

    Our dogs call us Mum and Dad (well they do when we are doing the talking) and we refer to them as 'sisters' as they are all girls and live together. I think we confuse some of the old dears that walk up and down Llandudno prom when we stop and talk to them and answer their doggy related questions about our mixed brood. More than once we've been asked "are they from the same litter then?" .... the mind boggles!!
