I have interesting dreams and I can often remember them in great detail



I have interesting dreams and I can often remember them in great detail

Since I have such crazy and vivid dreams, I decided to start documenting them and tagging them to see the most common things I dream about. Fortunately, I seem to have a really good knack for remembering dreams. As soon as I wake the next morning, I scribble some keywords and then later on I read through them, which then triggers my memories and I am able to remember each scene in great detail.

I will be using this blog to keep record of my dreams. Although at the time of writing this, I have already had lots of dreams in my youth that I never made note of – including the earliest dream I remember in which I attended a seminar held by Squirtle (the Pokémon) and he came on stage and said "Hello, I'm Squirtle" and sprayed everyone with water.

I also occasionally have a recurring dream that is just me eating croutons for what feels like an hour and I also had a dream that made me terrified of Timothy Spall.

There are a few things that are consistently used in my dreams, such as my ability to glide. I've had loads of dreams in which I could easily glide across the floor on my heels (like people wearing heely shoes) or even floating slightly. So prevalent was this when I was a young dreamer that I was convinced I'd done it in real life at some point.

It does sometimes become very difficult to distinguish dreams from real life. I didn't get my HND certificate because I thought I already had, but I realised a few days later that I'd actually dreamed it.

So, here are all the dreams that I've remembered...

The couple at the log cabin


I had a dream last night in which I was on holiday with my boss, Dave. It was a retreat kind of place with a log cabin next to a beach. I seem to remember we couldn’t get a train to where we were going, so we’d decided to stop there for the night. There…

The great glass toilet


The taxi came for work and I got ready to go out to work. I wanted to go barefoot, but mother made me go and get some socks on. Instead of going to work, the taxi took me to a restaurant that Gordon Ramsay was working at. I needed the toilet and asked someone where…

Toe-sucking fun


In the dream, mother was at home in the living room with my nephew, Max. Her colleague had come round to drop something off, but Max was really shy around her. He sat on the floor near her, eyeing her up. Mother gave them both some chocolate and this seemed to win Max over. The…

Having to put Zeta down


I had a dream last night that I had to put my dog, Zeta, down at the vets. I don’t remember anything else about the dream, other than it was very sad.

Nadine and Max


Had a dream last night in which my nephew, Max, and my Brazilian friend, Nadine, were both at my house. Nadine was a lot younger than she is in real life though. They’d each gotten me a present for my birthday and were arguing over who’d gotten the best present. I wanted to keep the…

A sad dream about Zeta


I can’t remember much about the dream, but it focussed around me having to put my dog, Zeta, down. Somehow she’d managed to live until 45, but it was still a very sad dream.

Starry Night on a Tuesday


I went for drinks with the family and when we were nearly finished, Matt from work said he’d drop me at school. He wanted a cup of tea first though, so I went and got changed into a makeshift school uniform with a black blazer with a red Flash shirt. I arrived at school when…

A trillion likes


I was at work and we had an intern (a young guy) in the office. Dave was out of the office so I sat in his chair and played Frank Sinatra over the speakers. After a while, Dave came back so I switched back to my usual chair, but he only stopped briefly to pick…

Attack of the trains


Mother and I went for a meeting with a health guy called George Staphanopholes (or something like that). Earlier, he’d asked me where I wanted to meet and I said “Well the top floor has a massage parlour, so there?” To which he replied, “I like your style.” Mother and I went to the top…



The dream started off with me at work. We had to try and get some songs our clients had recorded onto the radio, but we weren’t getting responses. That’s all I remember from that bit. In the next part, I went to karate. I skipped dinner to go, as I thought our instructor, Roger, wasn’t…

Dogs up the ring


I was up the ring (a little local park) with mother. There were several dogs, so we played with them for a while and then mother went to get a cup of tea. When mother came back I checked my phone and the time was 08:14, meaning the taxi for work was picking me up…

An ancient traditional jester’s outfit


Two people were tasked with making a Harley Quinn figure. One made a life size one, the other a normal sized figure. Meanwhile, a man was looking in a museum and saw a Harley outfit like the one she wore in her original cartoon appearances. “Is this an ancient traditional jester’s outfit?” he asked someone…
