Train Worry

I woke in the night
Worrying about the phone call
We overheard
On the train this morning

Will her elderly and incapacitated
Mother-in-law
Get the washing machine delivery okay
And will they deliver it
Up all those steps?

It's funny how things get inside your head and appear in your dreams. When my mum was moving house I spent a whole night moving furniture, mostly fridges there were thousands of them and lots of cats that kept escaping. Even stranger the house looked like the b&b we'd stayed in in Whitby that summer. I woke up exhausted.

I had a curios dream last night ( or was it the night before?) about waiting on the busy platform of a railway station but one track was the canal and narrowboat was the train. What does it mean?
Too much cheese and chutney before retiring I expect!
