Sketchy recollections of this, but there was a very heavy atmosphere of fear hanging over both of these parts of the dream.
There was also some chat about a driveway in the country that lead to a place (dunno if it was a house or field) where ‘it’ had happened. Don’t know what it was, but it was very very bad, and despite the daylight, the place was dark and forboding.
Added to this was a word or sentence that kept being mentioned, which seemed to summon the darkness and fear amongst not just me, but everyone. I think it was ‘all around’ that did the trick.
Back at my house in York, I turned to go into the lounge from my kitchen, having come in through the back door. The lounge door to the kitchen didn’t actually exist, it was just a door frame.
I went to go through it, but quickly started back peddling when a person that looked like a twenty something, thinner version of mi mam came towards me. This in itself is not so scary. The fact she had no eyelids was. Very, very scary indeed.
Having managed to drag myself out of that dream into the land of the awake, and having been for a whaz (and to check the flat for people with no eyelids), I went back to sleep only to find myself being chased by a maniacal Heather Nicholson.
Our kid and myself (and Kok Tack, who was there then morphed into my brother, off camera), were round the back of WH Smiths in York, except it wasn’t as it is in real life – it was this big sweeping ramp going down round three hollow floors. In fact it looked like that old Fisher Price garage you had when you were a young un – the one with the lift that made the car go down the ramp when it got to the top (a little bit like this, but this is a newer version).
Anyway, there was panick in the air. Me and Our Kid dashed up the only available exit, which was up a very steep narrow cobbled street. No sooner had we got about 10 feet into it, than maniacal Heather turned the corner. ARGH.
I distinctly remember throwing a stack of quid coins at her to ward her off – apparently this is the only weapon we had at our disposal.
