Things that go bump in the day.

Sitting here earlier and heard a loud clonk upstairs. On investigation, I found that a cat carrier basket which had been sitting on top of a wardrobe for several months had 'fallen' on the floor. No cats around, no windows open.

The house is still standing so I have no idea what caused it.


Anyone had any similar experiences?

Yes, many times things fall in my house.
Probably me not making sure they are balanced.
Mostly me falling over after too much wine.

Re: Things that go bump in the day.

Yes I have had similar things happen on numerous occasions and I think it happens when something has been dislodged but not quite reached a tipping point, then something small like a door opening gives the extra current to topple the item.

It often happens with the dog lead looped around a peg in the hall.

Longy, l am intrigued as to where you were ‘sitting’ when you heard the bump?

It wasn’t on the throne by any chance.... you know the one that has a dangling chain and flushes?!!

Ha ha. No I was on the sofa - on this forum in fact. Like I said, the house is still standing so I couldn't have been on the throne.
