I didn't sleep well last night, so went into another bedroom, where I continued not to sleep. About 7.00am, I was just drifting when I was woken by a noise in the room. It sounded like a bird caught in a chimney (there isn't one) followed by little feet running across the room twice.
I was terrified and sat up heart beating every sense alert. I thought it might be a rat. I thought of shouting for DH but our bedrooms are all off a corridor and he was 2 rooms away, with the door shut and his hearing is not good.
I sat in bed for about 20 minutes waiting, then having calmed down a bit, I picked my shoes of the floor, put them on, got out of bed , grabbed my dressing gown and got out of the room, closing the door behind me.
When DH got up I told him what had happened and once I had calmed down we went back to the bedroom and found - nothing. No rat, mouse, or bird, We moved furniture , looked under the bed, but nothing.
I am still trying to work out whether the sound was real or in my mind only, but it did wake me up with a bang.
Either way DH has gone out to buy rat poison and we will put it in the loft, although I am sure the noise was at floor not roof level.
