Then the earth moved

I have an embarrassing confession to make. I am incapable of sleeping in a bedroom if the wardrobe doors are open. I don’t know if it’s a leftover childhood fear of boogeymen hiding in the wardrobe or just a mild case of OCD. Whatever it is, I insist on closing all the wardrobe doors before I get into bed. It amuses and irritates Charlie in equal parts!

So you can imagine how shocked I was as I sat in bed feeding Little Woman shortly after 4am today when those very same wardrobe doors that I had carefully closed a few hours earlier started to vibrate! I actually rubbed my eyes to make sure I was seeing it right. And then as suddenly as the shaking started it stopped. I was left wondering if I had nodded off for a moment and dreamed the whole thing.

By the time the sun rose, I had forgotten all about it, until I read about the earthquake in Wales. Apparently it happened at around 4.15am. I guess an earthquake does make a lot more sense than boogeymen in the wardrobe!

    It’s not that embarrassing (and good health & Safety practice)!! Amazing that your particular fear meant you actually noticed the earthquake.

  2. Had to comment as I am exactly the same about the wardrobe doors, they face our bed and if they are even slightly ajar I have to get up and close them. The room could be completely upside down but those doors (and the en suite one) have to be closed.

    you are not alone at all, Lisa! I can’t stand open wardrobe doors. And still can’t understand how it doesn’t affect my husband… cannot he see it?
