Sounds intriguing; the title doesn't it? Its not really it's just the little things I have experienced as I'm sure many others have probably had similar experiences to mine. This one will be short!
Over the years from childhood I have experienced hearing things from nowhere, smelled familiar smells when no ones been there, etc.
Manys the time I have heard my name called "Nicole" sometimes with a "come on", to just hearing something but never quite making out what was said. Sometimes I've been on my own, other times, grandmother/partner/parents have been here and when asked what they've said they've not said anything!
Manys the time too I've smelt familiar smells. Bread, scones, steak and other cooking smells, even toast but nothing is being cooked. Perfumes are another thing I've smelt. Have often said to the other half "Can you smell that?" and of course he hasn't, though he's said the same to me!
One incident that sticks in my mind is while waiting for my partner to arrive home one night; I was working away on the computer when I smelt aftershave. Seriously it was like someone had leant over my shoulder to watch what I was I doing the smell was that strong! I've an idea it could've been a friend of mine who'd passed away 10 years before.
Another thing has been I have gone to let one of the dogs into bed (yes they sleep in bed with us!) only to find there's no dog there to let in as they're all already in bed! Can only guess that's Kippy letting mummy know he's about. On occasion of course when he was alive he used to annoy me rather than daddy to let him back into bed. Mmmm wonder where his son and daughter got that bad habit from! (chuckles) And as I often sleep on my own (can't stand my partners snoring!) I have also felt a dog either getting on the bed or actually on the bed and, yep you guessed it, no dog! Again it's got to be Kippy curled up with me:)
Even with this house, a house I have known from the age of 5 (I am recently just turned 41 on the 26 Feb... Eeeeek that's 36 years!) there's noises that go on I KNOW are not the house cooling down, like hearing the way the floorboards creak when someone's walking around but I know damn well no ones up! I often have heard someone walking through the house with an odd footfall, which could only be my grandfather who lost part of his foot while serving in the navy during WW2! Even animals wandering through yet all surviving animals are in bed snug and warm.
Anyway that's just a few little incidents that have happened. There have been others that at present don't come to mind clearly. Nothing frightening just pleasant things to let us know our loved ones are still about looking over us!
