Ever since I was about five I've heard this odd tapping noise from the walls in my bedroom which is always mystified me. It is usually only at night when I'm in bed.
I clearly remember the night I first heard it. My parents were out and my uncle was around with his two dogs babysitting us. I thought at the time it was some sound the dogs were making but I've heard it so many more time since then.
There is no particular pattern in how many times I hear the noises, sometimes it will be almost every night and sometimes I won't hear it for months. It is normally in one wall but will sometimes jump from wall to wall or in other words start in one wall then stop and start again in another wall. It varies in volume as in sometimes it will be so quiet I can hardly notice it and sometimes so loud I have to actually go and sleep in the lounge because it keeps me awake.
Sometimes if it's keeping me awake my father will come into the room to see if he can hear it and determine what it is but here is the weird thing. He can never hear it no matter how clearly I can. Like even if it's real loud for me he cannot hear it no matter how hard he tries. Sometimes it will stop completely or drop to very faint when he comes in then start up/get louder again when he leaves. Once I heard it faintly in my parent's room when I was in there and another time faintly in the lounge (Both are next to my bedroom) but only on the one occasion.
Recently we went up to Taupo for a holiday and I heard it in our cabin late at night, which admittedly freaked me out a little because I'd never heard it away from home before and it made me aware that whatever causes it must follow me. I am quite puzzled as to the cause and reason of this noise and if you Your Ghost Stories members have any ideas as to the cause and reason I would really appreciate your comments.
