I don't know what it was but it was lovely....

I had such a strange and surreal dream on Thursday night, but when I woke up I was completely in the Christmas spirit!  I can't remember anything about how I got to the end of the dream and what the build up of it was, but what I do remember was the image at the end as it lasted for what seemed like ages, whilst simultaneously in my mind thinking "what is going on"?

Your curious I can tell - ha, ha!  Well, the end of my dream was a scene which was very bright white, like fluffy and iridescent clouds backdrop to, yep you guessed it, a beautiful white lamb.  It was sitting down just like this one photographed above (except it was a bit more of a pop art style) which I saw in the entrance way of Dexter's school set amongst their nativity display!  It felt very lovely and calming and I really didn't want to wake up!

When I did surface, I was a bit confused thinking, where is the lamb and then I thought I have just had a dream with the lamb of God - wow!  It was really pretty and lovely, and clearly I had it because the evening before part of Dexter's homework had been for him to draw two things which related to Christmas and then to give the reason why they did.  Dexter chose the Christmas Pudding and Present (tree had already been given as an example which explained the homework).

Suppose there is nothing like a dream that makes you wake up all warm and happy and for me it got me right into the spirit of Christmas.  It was a bit like having had an audience with Clarence the angel from It's a Wonderful Life except I didn't hear any bells ringing to signify someone getting their wings!  I don't know what it was but it was a really lovely dream.



  1. cool! i love it when I can remember my dreams. glad youre feeling festive!! Have a great day

  2. Hi Anika, and I am feeling festive, even though Dexter and I both have sore throats and runny noses! Just back from seeing his school's Christmas assembly!

  3. Oh how wonderful. Look at Louie Armstrong, and so very young! That's a find for sure. Thanks for playing along, and hope to see you next week. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  4. I need a dream like that! I'm having a hard time remembering Christmas is less than a week away.

  5. I love her voice, and the horn. I could listen to this all day/night long.

    Thank you for the calming respite from my day!

    Happy MMM.

  6. Dolly and Tami, I am so glad that you like the Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald song, the Rufus Wainwright one is also really nice if you have not listened to it?

    Wishing you all a wonderful time....
