    I had children in the housr but somehow I wanted to eat the leftovers.

    I then went to a cupboard and there was many slim loaves of bread in that cupboard.

    Also that same night. My family was bathing in the sea. Apparently in that dream we had a
    house by the sea. They were telling me to come and join them. I started getting dressed. I was looking for shorts. I took out one after the other but I never made it to the water. They came out and I still did not go in.

  3. In my dream I was buying a long stick of bread from the supermarket and he wanted to cut it up in pieces and I said no, but he said he had to, so I asked to see the manager and then woke up, is there a reason why I didn’t want him to cut it up. Thankyou

In my thoughts I knew the young lady didn’t want me around because of their insecurities. This is way she gave me the keys to the house. Then the phone some called me on the phone & said the show had finished.

  7. I dreamed that I was flying past people along a sidewald. When I looked back all of the people were lying down, as if they had passed out.
