Guess what, everycat? Kate has had dreams two nights in a row which featured me doing adventurous things that I would never do in real life!
Dream #1 (Tuesday night): Kate dreamt that there was a big swell in the Derwent River (the big, wide river that Hobart is built around) and that her cousin Jarrod (who doesn't normally surf) wanted Kate to go down to the beach and watch him riding the big waves. Kate walked along the shoreline between Sandy Bay and Taroona (those familiar with Hobart will know where she means. Taroona is where Crown Princess Mary of Denmark grew up!), but she couldn't see Jarrod. So, she climbed into the water at Taroona and walked/swam her way along the shore (sometimes sandy, sometimes rocky) back towards Sandy Bay to try and find him. Guess who was in the water with Kate: ME! Swimming! Kate knew that I would follow her and be okay, but at one point she waited for me to catch up with her and she carried me the rest of the way to a surf club (that doesn't exist in real life), where she and I found Jarrod and his wife, Rebecca. We also dried off with a big towel.
Dream #2 (last night): Kate dreamt that she was living back at home with her parents (I have never lived there, just so you know) and that she had a big fight with her mum. Something to do with cooking (which makes sense, because Kate's parents used to run a cafe/restaurant, and they all lived in the apartment above it). So, she jumped on her bike and rode up to visit her grandma (whom she called 'Nan'), who lived in a cute cottage about 2kms away. Guess who followed her on foot: ME! Going for a big walk across town!
She had a really nice time at her nan's place, they always used to have great chats (I don't know where I was during this time. I hope I was inside, because Kate's nan's cottage always had a few mice lurking behind the skirting boards! Yum!). Then she decided that she'd better go home and face the music with her mum. So she hopped on her bike (which was a tiny pink and white BMX-- she never had one of those. Well she did, but hers was red) and got ready to ride home.
At this point, I turned up again. Somehow, I made it known to Kate that I didn't want to follow her on foot; I wanted to get a ride on her back. So, I jumped on. But I was facing the wrong way... which meant that I was facing behind her, my front paws on her backpack and my back paws on her shoulder... and my butt and tail in her face! Ha ha ha ha!! Anyway, Kate didn't mind; she was just so stoked that I was riding on her shoulders while she rode home. Me! Riding on Kate's shoulders while she's on a bike! About 3/4 of the way home, I decided to hop off and walk for the remainder of the trip. That's kind of all that Kate remembers...
Lotsa words in this post. But I had to tell you how I was a star in Kate's dreams! I wonder what I'll do tonight?
