This is very recent. In fact I made this account just to write about it. It happened last night in the early morning probably between 3-5am. I had woken up and jumped out of bed to go to the toilet as I was having a few beers before bed. Once I got back into bed and settled in, though, my bed shook hard. I assumed it was an earthquake and went to sleep. New Zealand sits over a lot of fault lines so decent earthquakes aren't anything out of the ordinary.
Once I woke up I checked Geonet.com to size up that earthquake during the night. I asked my partner if she felt the earthquake before doing so and she replied, "What earthquake?". Turns out there were no noticeable earthquakes.
After seeing that I thought about the event a bit more. The way my bed shook was nothing like an earthquake. It moved hard, but only in one direction, and once. It wasn't a back and forth motion like an earthquake. It was like someone had planted their foot on my bed frame and kicked hard.
Rather creepy when I think about it. There was another experience my mum actually had in this house too. She was walking back to bed in the dark as she had got up for the toilet. Dad was already fast asleep in bed. As she got close to the bed her duvet covers flew up in front of her.
Maybe we've got a ghost that doesn't appreciate the toilet being used in the middle of the night? Who knows. Exciting nonetheless. It will be interesting to see if this keeps up or repeats tonight. I'll update if it does.
