    confused Spooky going ons in my house!

    Thursday night the girlfriend and I were woken with the bedroom light suddenly going on. I hit the remote for it and turned it off. A little while later it went on again so she got out of bed and turned it off at the socket on the wall.

    Couple of hours later it goes on again flickers and then goes off and then back on again. I turn it off.

    Then at 4am the smoke alarm goes off. I check the house thinking maybe electrical fault as the light keeps going on/off. No fire and no other smoke alarms going off just the one outside our bedroom.

    So back to bed we go and about half an hour later the light goes on in the bedroom and the smoke detector goes off again. I get out of bed remove the battery from the alram remove the bulb from the light and go back to bed totally pee'd off

    So yesterday we put the bulb back in I check the wiring with a multimeter, check the battery to and put everything back to how it was. Same bulb & battery

    All day yesterday ok all night last night.

    Soooooo what was going on?!!!!!!!!!

    Not too much wine the night before by any chance. Looks like you might be in need of the Ghost busters.

    Nope both stone cold sober and the first time (Hopefully the last!) it has happened in our new house as we have only been here 8 weeks. Got to admit we both looked at eachother when the smoke detector & light went again and the old hairs were standing on the back of my neck lol

    Yes I bet it did put the wind up you both. No doubt there is a little dread about sleeping tonight.

    Maybe a ghost if trying to give you a message , = L.O.L.

    That you need to wake up and see the light or come out of the darkness and see the light .

    I.E. = Stop hiding and see something or someone in it's / their true light or for what they are " really " like .

    ================================================== =

    Regarding you " Hiding in your daughter's wardrobe " ,

    I would like to tell you a story about a wardrobe ,

    But ......... That is .......... NARNIA ... business ......... = L.O.L.

    Let me get this right, your smoke alarm goes off.... and you've identified an electical fault.... so you take the battery out of the smoke alarm and go back to bed?

    ..... OMG

    If your still alive today... you might want to get your electrics sorted out

    Not sure how you got to me identifying it as an electrical fault? If it had been a risk the bottom fire alarm that is 6ft below it would have gone off? As our landing is large there are two on the top floor and only one went off.

    Now the fact that this happened two days ago and on Friday I checked the electrics and nothing has changed and it has not happened again begs to ask the question why did it happen at all?

    (Also the house had a full electrical check before we moved in ;-) )
