Comments for On Holiday While Sleeping

On Holiday While Sleeping:

Two children are about four times as demanding as one child is. Harriet and Sean compete for my attention and often times my own thoughts get drowned out by their voices. Add in Ian trying to tell me a joke or something about his day at Berkeley and my inner voice is done in.

My only escape from the noise is sleep. When I am asleep my thoughts are my own and recently they haven't included my family! Normally I dream about my family but not these last couple of nights. Instead I've wished myself across the Atlantic to Great Britain to visit my BookCrossing friends. I've never actually been there but the dreams have seemed so real. It's probably a combination of my over-active imagination and what I've learned from reading their blogs and seeing the photographs they've posted.

The first night I was visiting RubyBlueLady. The last thing I remember of that dream was asking her if I could use her telephone to call my friend Spike1972 in Wales. She must have said yes because last night I was at his house. We also had to visit some other BookCrossers in the area and I had time to visit a lighthouse.

I wonder who I will be visiting tonight?
