I was recently reminded of this story while reading other posts about similar happenings.
My grandmother moved into her parents' home when my grandfather passed away and after my mother's previous home burned. My mother then moved into my grandmother's home right next door.
My grandparents had this home built when they first got married but the house went from them to my great grandparents and stayed with them until my grandmother moved back in.
The way the house was setup:
You walked into the front door into the living room and off to the left was the hallway to the bedrooms. On the left was a bedroom, a long stretch and then another bedroom. On the right side was a bathroom and a long stretch to the final bedroom with an En suite. The two bedrooms at the end of the hall were right across from each other so you could see someone walk to the bathroom. The kitchen was straight from the living room and a den was at the far right side of the house. With a patio off the kitchen.
One night my boyfriend and I were staying with my grandmother and since I have insomnia I couldn't sleep. I see a figure walk to the bathroom and just assumed it was my grandmother. After sitting there a few minutes I realize I haven't seen her come out. I didn't hear a fall so I was perplexed and concerned so I get up to see if she's OK as she does have a history of falling and that bathroom was floor to ceiling tile. When I walk in I see she's still fast asleep and shows no signs of having gotten up. So I gently wake her and ask how long she was in the restroom. She tells me she hasn't been up at all and to not wake her again. Now I'm confused even more because I know I saw this figure walk into that bathroom. I didn't share this with my boyfriend because he doesn't believe and thinks it's myth I guess.
My best guess is it was dark and that's why I couldn't see detail but I want to assume it was one of my great grandparents. I'd hate to know it was a true shadow figure. There's a family living there now that we know quite well and their demeaner has shifted a bit. They were super nice but now they're easily agitated and seem to want nothing to do with us. I don't want to be nosey and ask if they've experienced any activity but I am curious though.
