This is a totally new experience for me one that has baffled me for days.
Last Saturday 5th February 2011 I woke up earlier than I normal would have on a weekend. I was awake at 6.30am, an hour and half before my alarm goes off. (I usually get up at 8a.m. Both Saturday and Sunday). Not wanting to stay in bed, I got out of bed, had a coffee, cleaned up a little and unbelievably cooked as well and about 9.30a.m I was at the Gym. I got home about 12 noon and with not that much left to do, I decided to make myself a cup of coffee and finish up any little bits I had not managed to do before I left.
Whilst in the kitchen I heard what sounded like a PC trying to connect to the internet. Remember when internet was Dial-up? Well that is the noise I heard loud and clear. I turned to look at the studio to see if it may have been something in the studio, but off course the PC's, laptops all the equipment was switched. I shrugged it off as me hearing things. Maybe I had over done it at the gym! I turned to finish making my coffee; I then heard what sounded like a message coming through. Not text message but a message coming through on MSN. Again I turned around and looked to the PC only this time telling myself the damn thing is off. I then took my mobile phone out to see if I have received a message, maybe I had changed my message tone accidentally without realising. Chances of me doing that are very slim. No message on my phone, so I looked to my partners phone, nope not his either. I was in the kitchen for maybe half an hour and throughout that half an hour or so, I kept hearing noises that only a PC or Laptop would make, the dial-up connection, the MSN messenger, little bleeps.
That same evening whilst in the living room, I kept hearing funny clicks near the TV and the Hi-fi system. These two electrical items are on opposite sides of the room. Although the morning incidents did spook me a little I was more freaked out by the taps, clicks and the little knocks I was hearing by the TV. The same little taps were heard on the Hi-fi system although they stopped. I came to a conclusion that electrical items will make weird noises when you switch them off, does not matter what item it is. But my problem is that the TV, as it does appear to be happening around that particular part of the room, can be off all day and night and these taps, clicks, knocks are still heard. We have all heard them. Men seem to have an explanation for everything, no offence guys but me I don't know.
I switch everything off between 10-11pm, however recently I have been so spooked by the noises I have started to leave the TV on all night, hallway light included. I am afraid to turn my back to the TV. I know it sounds stupid I mean it is not as if the TV is going to walk over to me and go BOO. I just feel I can't turn my back on it, maybe I should say corner as well as TV. This is happening every night now. I sometimes find myself saying just P*** Off.
I noticed my son had slept with his TV on all night last night. When I asked him he denied having it on all night and said he woke at 5 this morning and could not sleep so he put the TV on. He was sound asleep when I walked in. I wonder if he is hearing what I am.
So since last Saturday I have been hearing funny PC sounds. The noises near and on the TV have increased and are now accompanied by what sounds like someone jumping over a wall and a bell. I actually asked my son when he came out of his room about 11.30p.m last night what he was banging.
So there you go any ideas?
