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

Since I have such crazy dreams and can often remember them, I decided to start documenting them and tagging them to see the most common things I dream about.

There are 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 the Pokémon Squirtle. 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 featured in my dreams, such as my ability to glide across the floor - either on my heels or floating slightly. So prevalent was this when I was young 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...

Lee the cheat

27/11/2019

Wasn’t a very nice dream last night. I dreamt that my brother had cheated on his girlfriend with another woman. I got mad at him and ‘disowned him as my brother’. I don’t remember much else other than that.

The Rhine Pass

29/10/2019

Don’t remember much of this dream. A teacher took me and 3 other students to a place called The Rhine Pass. It was a part of the country where a lake split into 4 rivers, which travelled down for a few miles and then met again at the sea. We didn’t actually go there in…

Tell Me More

28/10/2019

I was at a songwriting workshop in a big hall. It was full of ‘cool’ people, musicians who knew they were pretty good. They weren’t hipsters, but you know the type, quite confident and funky hair cuts. Anyway, for the last half hour, the tutor said it was ‘free time’ in which we could play…

Chris Evans gives bad advice

23/10/2019

Mike and I went back to school and we managed to lie our way into an art class. We did a bit of painting until everyone left. Then Mike wanted a birthday present from the class but didn’t want anyone to give him something he didn’t want, so he had a look around and eventually…

David Mishmash

17/10/2019

In this dream, I was watching QI. Bob Mortimer was hosting and asked the following question related to David Mitchell: “True or false, the phrase ‘mish mash’ came about as a misspelling of ‘mitchell’ He never gave the answer, he just carried on and gave a bunch of random facts. Later, Vid Reeves came out…

Ozzy’s house

16/10/2019

At the start of last night’s dream, I came downstairs into the living room and Mike was sat on the sofa. I asked him if it was shorts weather – I was wearing shorts at the time – and he said “No, but keep them on, cos you look good.” I went upstairs and changed…

The everlasting candle

11/10/2019

Smudger, Laura and Matt from work had come to work at my house. It didn’t look anything like my house though, as my brother had redecorated and redesigned all the rooms. The kitchen was a really nice, modern kitchen with a black tiled floor and oak furniture. It was much bigger and had things that…

Escape to the food hall

09/10/2019

Can’t remember much of last night’s dream. I was at the NEC or some exhibition centre with Mike and some other people. We got off the bus and were walking quickly to avoid a kid catching up to us. I think I’d had a fight with him or something. We went in and found the…

Aquaman and the aliens

06/09/2019

The dream started off with me watching a Justice League film. There had been one released recently that mixed live action with comic book style cutaways, but someone had produced an edited version without the comic book bits. In the film, the Justice League were investigating a big, square building down by the docks. Green…

Donuts are coming

05/09/2019

Mike and I agreed to take part in a football thing to raise money for charity. To celebrate, we ordered some Krispy Kreme donuts. While we waited, I put some bread in the toaster and some pizza in the oven. I fell asleep and the toast burnt. Mike woke me up saying “something’s cooking” by…

It’s a shavin’ thing

03/09/2019

It started out that Mike was at my house and we were having a bit of a party. Mike went home, but I was seeing him the next day, which was a Sunday. I ordered a taxi and it arrived quicker than I’d expected. I hadn’t packed, so I asked mother to cancel the taxi…

The couple at the log cabin

12/08/2019

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

09/08/2019

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

08/08/2019

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

07/08/2019

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

06/08/2019

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

05/08/2019

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

25/07/2019

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

15/07/2019

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

13/07/2019

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…

Alli

11/07/2019

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…
