A visit with the Queen

I had a dream last night.

I took the school kids to a function so I had 3 kids with autism in the back of the car. One of the mums needed a lift home so she jumped in the front. A person approached me to let me know The Queen needed to get home and could I drive her, which of course I could, so I abandoned my charges and somehow found myself driving a London taxi cab with The Queen in it.

Of course I don't know how to drive in London or how to drive a London taxi cab and within seconds I had turned the wrong way up an enormous Boulevard, realised my mistake, jerked the car onto the foot path where it hit a Narnia style lamp post and started hissing. The Queen and I got out, she was very polite and told me she knew a back way on foot.

It was dark by now, and the Queen was showing me the way through an unlit dingy park beside a river. She was striding on foot and I was, dear reader, keeping pace on a pogo stick.We had a lovely conversation it went something like this
Queen (thoughtful, satisfied): Appearing at public ceremonies or other occasions is where I really come into my own.
Me (very intelligently, pogo-ing beside): You're very good at it. Everyone in Australia knows who you are. Should I tell her I voted for Australia to become a Republic?
Me: Are you able to walk through places like this on your own?
Queen (politely ignoring the very stupidity of the question): No
Stupid stupid me. Do you think she would be walking beside my pogo-ing if she had a choice?

We arrived at the back door of Buckingham Palace. The Queen nodded to a footman and said a polite goodbye. I could see a long low table with a lot of kids having a rowdy dinner party all wearing home made costumes and masks.

The butler came to thank me for my troubles and presented me with four pewter dishes with the ER insignia. The back door of Buckingham Palace was closed on me. I realised the butler had forgotten to order me a cab back to my car. I had to pogo my way back with four pewter dishes in hand.


So. Tell me dear internettes, what does it mean? Am I pregnant?

Heck if I know! I'm wishing for you that you are very pregnant!

That is a pregnant type of dream if ever I heard one. One crazy thing right after another. The Queen, four pewter plates a pogo stick and three autistic children. I hope you are pregnant too.

fucked if I know mate.

I did think of the red queen though. Hm, hope that the fact the queen in your dreams said goodbye means that the red queen stays the fuck away for the next 8ish months - for all the right reasons of course.

:-S

That could be a sign, right? A good one?

God I hope so

Kami said...

I hope so. I wish I could tell you for sure.

Seems just wacky enough to mean almost anything - but it would be such a great story to tell your little one when they say "Tell me about when I was born..."

Hope you get to do that SOON!

DFToolan - Hey I'm guessing you're a new reader or someone interested in bt for whatever reasons.

I noticed you didn't have a blog I could go back to but if you want to ask questions, feel free to do it in the comments.

Hope you are OK

Hi B,
I have been a lurker for a year. I was diagnosed with a BT after an ultrasound and amnio at 20 weeks showed major problems. I delivered my stillborn daughter at 23 weeks. Your blog was the first I read in trying to make sense of what a BT was... You have been a major source of information and support. I am not brave enough to start my own blog. I also joined a yahoo group with other women and men who have BTs. You may already be a member. I am really hoping that good things come your way soon!
Best,
Deirdre

I'm really sorry to hear about the death of your daughter. It's so unfair.It really sucks so badly.

Not sure where you are at with the whole building a family thing at the moment, but I know whichever road you are on, it's a bumpy one. I'll be thinking of you as you head down it. May it lead to a beautiful place.

take care mate

Here from ICLW. I don't know if you are, but you met the Queen and that has to be a good sign. One doesn't get to meet the Queen every day now does one?
