Sometimes, when I have trouble sleeping, I get up, go downstairs and sleep on the sofa, I take my pillow with me and wear a dressing gown. Last night, something very weird happened.
I couldn’t sleep again, so decided to do my usual. I went to the loo first so there’s no way I was dreaming or anything like that. As I got half way down the stairs, I saw a bright flicker of light in the corner of the hall, just for a couple of seconds, like the light from a torch. Thinking that there must be someone in the house, I froze, listening for any sounds or any clue as to who or what it might be.
After a few minutes, I had worked out that the only direction it could be coming from was the kitchen (which has a glass door) and is normally locked, so I decided to storm the kitchen as quick a possible but there was no one there. All the windows were locked as was the back door. I then did a quick inspection of the rest of the house bit could not see anywhere the light could have come from.
I was wide awake for about two hours afterwards, listening for any unusual sounds but nothing happened. In the end I had to convince myself that I had imagined it so that I could get some sleep but I know I didn’t.
I still can’t work out what it was. it’s difficult to explain the layout of my house but there’s just nowhere it could have come from naturally like a car going by or lightning.
Glass crystal thingies yes, are you thinking that light could have reflected off it from outside the front door? that IS possible i suppose because the crystals would deflect any light. Mmm, you might be onto something there Knuckles.
the only thing I would add is that the light was moving whereas I doubt the light fitting was???
