So I posted on here a few years ago about how I'd heard a really weird whisper over my baby monitor that I just couldn't explain. There were a couple of other odd things too, like weird noises upstairs hat sounded like someone bouncing a ball on the floor even though everyone was out and mr ork claiming that he saw a weird light go across the room. But it seemed to stop a couple of years ago and I haven't really thought about it much since. Welll, yesterday I had the weirdest experience yet. I spent yesterday morning giving the upstairs a really thorough clean (glamorous half term eh?!) and I got straight in the newly pristine shower straight after. I'd got out and was in my bedroom when I heard someone having a wee in the upstairs toilet (separate from bathroom and part of the 'new' extended side of the house). Loudly. And unmistakably a boy wee (yes, there is a difference). As I'd just spent the morning scrubbing that toilet and my kids are disgusting little scuzzbuckets who are apparently allergic to flushing I came out of my room to the top of the stairs where I could see the open door to the toilet but not the actual bog (we all leave the upstairs toilet door open all the time - don't start, we just do) and I called out to whoever it was to make sure they flushed. No answer. So I went over and no one there. Popped my head into the two youngests rooms, which are on either side of the toilet, and no one there either. Went back to the top of the stairs and hollered down and all 3 kids answered from downstairs. There is no way anyone could have done a wee and gone downstairs because theyd have had to walk past me. Then, as I looked over at the toilet again, there was a brief shadow passing over the door. The kind that you get when a bird or something flies past a window on a sunny day and casts a shadow for a fraction of a second. Except the only natural light that can get to the door in the toilet is from the small toilet window which opens directly onto the house next door with only a couple of foot space in between. No chance of sunlight coming in because of the house next door. Weird. Told Mr ork, who told me to stop watching ghost adventures. Until tonight when he was upstairs changing out of his work clothes and he heard what he thought was the youngest having a wee upstairs. He went out to remind him to flush and wash his hands, as is standard with a 3 year old, and no one there. He maintains he not only heard distinct wee noise, very loud and prolonged, but that he also heard footsteps on the wooden floor in the toilet, which is why he was sure it was one of the kids. But all 3 were downstairs with me and had been for the past hour when mr ork called down in alarm asking who'd just been upstairs. So come on. What rational explanation can I be blaming this phantom urinator on?
