Is it possible that my house is cross with me?

I don't really believe that the answer could be yes, but there's been some oddness at home of late.

First, we lost our garden keys: specifically two for the shed and one for the back gate. Annoying, but not noteworthy. A week later my spare car keys disappeared - the last time I definitely had them was to drive to Staffordshire last weekend. We found a dead frog just hanging in the pond, which my nature-savvy friends tell me is unusual. The birds have stopped coming to the feeders. There has been a strange smell coming and going. The washing-machine is making funny noises. There has definitely been a kind of oppression in the house: a sort of pre-headache malaise that lifts when I go out. Like I say, it's as though I've annoyed the house.

Clearly there is a rational explanation for this. The shed keys have been engulfed by the Flymo; I've simply forgotten where my car keys are; the neighbours' cat has done for the frog and seen off the birds; my dustbin needs sanitising. I need a new washing-machine,  and I've simply had a headache (and perhaps I should check the carbon monoxide levels coming out of the boiler).

I have a lot of friends who reckon to have contacts in the spirit world, friendly ghosts at their beck and call and all sorts of similar malarkey. Just for fun this morning I asked them for their help via Facebook. Could they possibly twirl their pendulums and ask for aid on my behalf?

Back came the answer, so feeling extremely stupid, I got myself comfy and then held out my hands, palms upwards (obviously) and said out loud that I was sorry if I had offended the house, but could it please reveal where it had hidden my keys? Answer came there none. I went off for a shower.

All of a sudden I had the strangest feeling that my keys were in my green rucksack. Sure enough, there they were. How forgetful am I! The thing is, though, that I haven't used that particular bag for nearly a month. Oo-er!

    1. Someone has offered to come and cleanse the house for me, but I don't think it'll come to that. It's all just a coincidence - isn't it?

  2. Had to read it after you commented on my blog (Thank you Julia). You know, for years I have used this little trick to find things. I simply say, "Well, I'll never find that," As sure as eggs is eggs, whatever it is will turn up within a few moments. (Nine times out of ten). Whether this releases something in my brain which reveals all to me or whether the gremlins replace the missing item just where I next look, I shall never know but my children have adopted this method as well and swear it works. (They also used to call me a witch) Ha ha! Do come back soon. Debbie.

    1. There's nothing wrong with accepting a little magical help, Debbie.

  3. Well, I'd say your house was cross with you! I've seen a ghost, experienced on banging around the house, and I've seen an angel.I truly believe we'd be amazed if we could see and understand that 4th or even 5th dimension. Just to be safe I'd stay on the good side of your house! ;)
