Yesterday I cleaned the laundry room, including washing the floor. This morning I went to put some washing in the machine and found a £1 coin in the middle of the floor - definitely not there when I finished cleaning yesterday but there when I opened the door this morning! Do I have a generous ghost? A spider who wants to pay rent? Am I walking in my sleep scattering coins as I go?

Can it have dropped out of the washing pile somehow, maybe rolled a bit, or been left in laundry basket from a previous wash?

Coming up with daft possibilities I know....

May have fallen out of whatever washing you put in this morning ? Trouser pocket ?

Oldwoman70 Mon 03-Aug-20 15:48:01

I saw it as soon as I opened the door and the washing I was putting in this morning was just towels so no pockets!

Could it have been stuck to your shoe and come off as you walked out?

Either that or it's the spider paying rent!

A long overdue payment from the tooth fairy?

Pennies from heaven? ok I know it’s a pound just using a bit of poetic license.

A ghost leaving you a message.

Its mine. I dropped it in the kitchen and it rolled somewhere. Couldn't find it. Wondered where it could possibly have gone. Have a bar of chocolate on me.

The day after my husband died I found an old penny in the middle of the floor from the year he was born!! I carry it with me for luck now

Morning i would go with a sign of good things to come. A nice little ghostly gesture. My tv very often tapes old films which uplift my mood which i wouldnt tape. I would say thanks they are there to boost you in difficult timesthanks

We call that, pennies from heaven. I was having coffee with a friend (long ago) and a coin rolled up. Now this was an enclosed patio, no one in sight. And sometimes you do find coins in the street, as well.

I’ve just found a £10 note in my sofa - giving it a very rare thorough clean down the sides with the vacuum long hose nozzle.
Positive it’s mine - Prosecco tonight!! X

Just found a £5 note in a book I was about to pass on. Must have used it as a bookmark. Don't remember doing it, so maybe ghosts are having a "be kind to humans" week.

Well, who knows. I have a story though. I used to have a bad back, had been off work for months. I always liked to think my dad was still looking out for me, and one day, I was going downstairs and slipped on the second step up. I shot into the air like a cartoon character and it flashed through my mind that I was about to slam into the ground and no doubt wreck my back again, just I was recovering. Help! I pleaded. Well, next thing I knew, I just found myself sitting on the floor. There had been no impact At all. Nothing. I just sat there, stunned and said ‘well, whoever that was, thank you.’ Can’t really explain that.

What a lovely thought: ghosts having a be kind to humans week.

Long may it last!

I wish my Mum would let me know where her jewellery went. She passed away 3 years ago and I went through every bag, pocket, drawer, box, you name it I looked. It was a ruby ring (40th wedding anniversary present) and also my Dads signet wedding ring. Completely gone. A spiritualist told me her carer had taken it - but that could be the start of another thread.

So if its ghosts be kind to humans week - I will happily wait for a sign.

I think a lot of us have had an 'other wordly' experience which we cannot explain. I've had at least 3.

Yes, of course it’s some thing (person) paying rent. Make sure you look every day.

polnan Tue 04-Aug-20 14:00:52

well , some Christians say there is no such thing as coincidence....... It is God working in His mysterious ways...

I find that so.... many a time..

but why would God give you a £1 coin.

My husband passed away last August and several times since things have happened that have no explanation. I like to think he is watching over me.
He always wore the same after shave but hadn’t for a while due to his illness. Some weeks after he died I walked into the bedroom and there was the smell, so definite, yet I’d been in there earlier and it wasn’t there. It has happened twice since.
