Hi, I am new here. I joined because of some strange things happening recently to myself and my 24 year old daughter. We live in a 2 bedroom massionette and recently some strange things have been occurring, on there own not that significant and possibly can be explained but I would appreciate some advice please. I have some battery operated lights in my lounge and they are switched off, but come on at random moments each night despite being turned off. My daughter heard footsteps running up the stairs and towards her room when we were all out. Today, I woke early for work, it was still dark so I turned on my lamp, it didn't work, I went to work came home and it was on. My daughter and her boyfriend noticed lots of flies in the kitchen and shut the door, I checked for a source and decided the only thing could be the bin, but it didn't look like they were coming from there. I have no doorbell anymore as we had a late night caller that used to ring in the middle of the night and we removed the battery, its not wired up so no source to ring, yet in the middle of the night it still sounds. My daughter noticed all the kitchen doors are open every morning, despite being closed when we go to bed at night. All little things but to be honest they are starting to worry me a bit. I am not scared by it but my daughter is. Another worrying incident is my front door lock was snapped off this weekend, we have arranged to have a new door but we have to wait a week for it to be fitted, so feel a little vulnerable to a possible break in, not sure if this is a separate issue to the lights going on and off as that's quite physical and would have taken considerable effort to snap off. My next door neighbour moved last year, the man was a medium and used to say they had spirits in their massionette, when they left they gave me an ornamental buddah to put outside our house that they didn't take with them, is this connected? Also my mum died last year and my neighbour didn't know about it at the time, but the weekend after my mum died, she said she got a message for someone with my name that I was feeling depressed and alone and needed help...a coincidence my mum had just died or not? My mum was a very down to earth lady but we always joked if she could return and let me know there was something more then she would. Am I going mad?
