Dream, 3rd June, Anonymous

I dreamt that I arrived home and found that my next-door neighbour had taken down the old brick
wall between our back gardens and ripped out lots of the vegetation. She was replacing it with
closeboard fencing. She was swanning around, instructing the labourers on what to do, but
simultaneously having a party and had put up some of her guests in OUR house! I was trying to turf
out people with overnight bags from various rooms. I felt really angry and distressed. When my
husband got home, he – as in real life – was quite stoic about it and not really taking ‘my side’…I’d
said that there would be huge biodiversity loss from her actions but he said there wouldn’t and I felt
quite betrayed.
