When I lived in my last house we had a lot of alterations done. We bought second hand furniture for the lounge. It was from another area and it was kept in a garage for a long time.
On this particular day I was dropped off from work and as I was walking along my garden path I noticed the inside door was open in my porch. As I opened the porch door I heard the sound of lots of talking and laughing in a friendly entertaining way. At that moment I thought my son was home early from school and watching television. As I was just about to step inside it went completely quiet and as I entered the lounge there was no one in there and the television was off. I was so shocked and a bit on edge as I was expecting to see my son.
About 10-15 minutes after this my manager from work phoned me. After the conversation about work she said "are you ok?" I said "yes" but I was not. I wanted to tell her but thought she might think I was a bit funny. I did tell her about this a few weeks afterwards.
My conclusion is that it must had been the changes in the house and the sofas as they belonged to the seller's parents who had passed away. I would like to know if this has happened to anyone else.
Perhaps the owners of the settee liked entertaining. It was retro. They never had that design of the settee in the 1990s so it was old but in very good condition. I can only say on this that as the settee was stored away for a long time with so many memories, and a not letting go situation and the extensions in my last home were the profound paranormal scientific reasons for this.
