I went to my Nan's house this morning because my mum needed to get something from my aunt (her sister). My aunt and I went upstairs to get what my mum needed, but my aunt needed the loo so I waited for her upstairs.
I began to wonder around the spare room, which was full of arts and crafts bits (my aunt is an amazing crafty person) and then I headed into my Nan's bedroom.
The last time that I had been in there was when I had to sleepover at my aunts in my Nan's bed with my cousin. It wasn't a nice experience seeing as it hadn't been that long since my Nan died at the time.
Anyhow, I wandered inside and suddenly got a large feeling of warmth flood through me. It made me smile, even though there really wasn't a lot to smile about! The room was tidy, but there were boxes and bags of stuff that my aunt was clearing out. As I walked around the outside of the bed, I heard the bags make a loud and sudden rustle.
It made me jump but I didn't think a lot of it. I headed over to the window, which was where my Nan would always be whenever I came to see her. She would have her head out of window, looking at all the cats that would wonder around the street. I stuck my head out and then suddenly got a strong whiff of her perfume, which I have now, but never use it as it brings back to many memories.
Then my aunt walked in with a bag full of jewelry which she told me was some of hers and some of my Nan's. She said that if there was anything I wanted I could take it. So I had a look through and discovered a sapphire ring, which I am wearing currently, and I was drawn to it, as it was the same color as her eyes.
We then went downstairs, and I came back up about 20 minutes later needing the loo myself and I felt really weird, like she was there even though I couldn't see her.
Being there today gave me a good sense of security. I believe that she is in that house, watching over her oldest child (my aunt) and anyone else that comes to visit, and it feels really nice.
