It was a rather mediocre night's sleep which meant I woke up in the middle of several dream sequences, and now I have a chance to sit down and type I've lost the first one which was actually interesting. Woops, oh well.
Nothing about being under attack!
The one just before I gave up on sleep involved having a pine tree and several weird jungle trees (or rather more like Hollywood set weird jungle trees) installed in various parts of the house. When I asked why, I was told that the children wanted to decorate them in preparation for Christmas. (I feel that this is perhaps some wild bit of my brain that's been sensitised by FM's demand to be prepared for the next festivity, whatever it is; she is currently obsessed with her birthday. In November.)
