What about the sense when you are doing something and you thing “ I have done this before” – you know, the “Déjà vu” thing? That happens to me a lot….A real lot! (And I am not talking about that OMG, every month when another credit card bill comes and I think I just paid this, déjà vu!!!)
Anyway as I was saying dreams are funny things. A wonderful and dear friend shared a dream she had with me recently. It may not be as funny for the rest of you, but for those who know Nicole, it is most amusing.
Nicole and Gumpy (Gumpy is our affectionate name for Anne, who is another beautiful friend – Anne who retired after an incredible mental health nursing career, has now commenced her new career as chef and restaurant owner – please check out EQUUS in Sale)…back to the dream, Nicole and Gumpy were at Plough Creek Homestead for lunch, and we had changed the building to a two storey building with table and chairs everywhere. Apparently I had to commence cooking lunch for 200 people who just arrived – unexpectedly – from FRANCE! Nicole and Gumpy had to stay and be my waitresses…..naturally I did not “bat an eyelid” (you can tell this is a dream ‘cos everyone knows I would have had a major meltdown at this point – well, at least uttered a lot of grown up people type words!!) Apparently in the dream I just took it all in my stride. Nicole states that the menu was stunning – shame she can’t recall exactly what was on it – maybe I will create a “dream menu” sometime for the cooking school?? Now there's an idea....
Back to the dream ……The chef who was working with me was tall, with blonde hair and very calm – just like me! (Calm that is, not tall and blonde). Together we sorted out the menu for the 200 fabulous French guests.
Poor Nicole was freaking out, she'd only called in for lunch, but thought she was going to have to cook in her first cooking class which was about to commence, she wanted to bolt. She was petrified she would have to cook for the 200 guests who had arrived and she could not leave as they were blocking her way. She could not leave me in the lurch and her loyalty to me as a friend overrode her desire to flee. She figured she could at least wait tables to help.
The reason why this is so funny is because Nicole is the MOST UNFOODIE person I know – she is definitely an “eatie”, shopping and cooking is not her thing – NOT AT ALL. I mean she never wants to cook – appears to have an abnormal fear of it! I think this dream is telling her she needs to be a special guest at a Plough Creek Cooking School and confront her “non cooking” issue!!!
Do you recall your dreams? DC x
