Dream Tuesday – aeroplane dream

The aeroplane part of this is new. The building has been in other dreams, as has the street scape.

Observation Tuesdays – Thieves, Kidnappers, Bears and other threats to small girls.

For a while now I have thought it odd, and at times frustratingly annoying that the girls:

1) won’t stay on their own upstairs while we are downstairs. This extends to being unwilling to sleep upstairs at night when we are sleeping downs stairs; and 2) call out either mum or Brian whenever we come . . . → Read More: Observation Tuesdays – Thieves, Kidnappers, Bears and other threats to small girls.
