    I've often wondered what the woo woo sound is, I think it might be street cleaners, apart from the inconvenient fact it happens late at night.
    However it may explain the phenomenon of the beer can being blown along by the wind which you can never see the next morning.
    My weirdest noise was about 3 am, a low growl accompanied by a high pitched squeal, so far, so fox, but then I heard a womans voice singing!
    This seemed to be right outside my window, fortunately I'm a total coward so didn't investigate further. I went to bed pronto.

    Yesterday I discovered several small bruises on the inside of my right elbow. They resemble the bruises left after a hypodermic needle has been used to take a blood sample. But I haven't given a blood sample for years!

    Also there seem to be about 5 bruises, and taking a blood sample only leaves one, or perhaps two if the first attempt is not successful. This is a bit baffling - I don't inject myself with anything, I'm too scared of needles!

    There's nothing on my left arm, although I have had blood samples taken there in the past.

    Has anyone any plausible reasons for these bruises? They have faded somewhat since yesterday.

    Do you have a bedside table? If you do perhaps you might have thrown your arm around whilst asleep and banged it on the edge .I've sometimes had bruises from that.
    Of course it might have been aliens trying to find out the secret of longevity.

    Have you picked up anything heavy in a cradle like fashion?
    I used to get similar bruises on my shoulder from the strap of a fishing box.
    Accidents sometimes, although you usually remember why.
    Given my obsession with buses if it was me I would assume it was from clinging on for dear life around one of the bars as approaching my stop involves a murderous slalom.
    All the best.

    Rynner, have you had any dreams of being floated out of the window recently or woken up with a sore bottom?

    Bed bugs, fleas or spider bites can leave small round bruises.

    But Occam's razor dictates that Heckler20's suggestion of being abducted by an alien arse-bandit is a far more likely explanation! :eek:

    The bedside table is on my right, so any bruises from that would probably be on the outside of my arm.

    Aye, the classic alien abduction scenario is someone driving their car late at night along a remote country road who see a bright light and find when they get home they are missing time.
    Under hypnotic regression they remember being taken aboard an alien spacecraft and being anally probed.
    Which as far as I am concerned implies aliens have travelled millions of light years to basically go dogging.

    I may have to take photos of the scene later to explain the mystery of this properly, but this morning leaving the kitchen I saw on the floor, in a tight corner between the kitchen/living room door ( sliding door which remains permanently fully open) and a built in kitchen unit a substantial pile of small stones/clay/crumbling brick work. By substantial I mean covering a floor space equivalent to the size of and adult male palm. The mystery is that there is absolutely no visible source for it. The floor is solid stone tiles. The unit which stretches from teh floor to waist height has a rubber sealant running up the joint between it and the wall/door frame. There is one visible tiny hole in the sealant - but the idea the material might have been pushed through is ruled out when I placed the larger of the stones against it. It's too small. The rest of hte wall and the ceiling is standard undamaged painted plaster with no gaps, cracks, holes or anything else above or around the spot from which material could have fallen or escaped.

    No one else has been in the house, bar the carers who tend to my mum but they don't go in the kitchen and certainly haven't come straight from a building site in their boots.

    I'm completely perplexed..especially as I'm sure I also found a smaller pile of inexplicable debris, perhaps of a different kind, in the same spot the last few days..but it wasn't a big enough mystery then to fully register the details on my memory.

    A partial solution...I've discovered that the metal plate used to separate flooring between one room and another has a gap under it in that corner and I can see at least one stone under there.

    So that may be the source of the material (unless the stone was pushed under when brushing it up)..but it doesn't explain the who how and what of it being transported into the open. A mouse perhaps?it seems highly unlikely as there's nowhere for it to be going to or from.

    Mice, ants, weevils, wasps? All carrying their share of the spoil as they undermine your house. Look out for the ones with plus-fours or cycle-clips! Never allow them to exercise with a wooden horse, as it probably conceals the tunnel entrance. :eek:

    I've deduced that under that side of the metal plate was some form of stone which under the weight of my mum's passing wheelchair cracked and crumbled spraying the debris outwards on to the kitchen floor.

    I prefer Jame's theory:
    "Mice, ants, weevils, wasps? All carrying their share of the spoil as they undermine your house." :twisted:

    I was out for lunch with my mum and my cousin yesterday. When conversation turned to health, it transpired that they had both had the same dream (having an operation on their left knee) at the same time (Thursday night). We don't know anyone who is having/has had such an operation. Yet... :p

    How many fingers have you got? could it be you had a bad dream and squeezed your other arm in your sleep as you lay on it? I think I've done the same.

    or maybe alien abduction as others are suggesting.

    The bruises were very small, as if caused by a hypodermic needle.

    They've mostly faded away now.

    Nah, it was far too loud. I'm thinking it was most likely something mechanical, but what kind of machinery is a mystery. Nothing like we ever heard before.
