Life’s mysteries

According to the Oxford dictionary, a mystery is ‘the quality of being difficult to understand or to explain’. With that definition in mind, I have spent the day trying to think of something that I definitely no explanation for. I cane up with a few like my ghostly experience in Egypt. You can read about that here. That was definitely mysterious!

Then there was my ex boyfriend who, according to a medium, was an Egyptian somebody in a past life and he has 2 Anubis looking dudes that watch over him. (Strange about that Egyptian connection here too. 🤔)I wouldn’t have believed it but there were times when I would wake up in the middle of the night and sense a strong presence next to our bed. I didn’t feel threatened by it but I was aware it was there. We only found out about his apparent guardians when we broke up so maybe there is some truth to the story…🤷🏽‍♀️

But the greatest mystery of all in my book is how the heck do I end up with so many odd socks!!! I mean, it’s just my son and I at home. I do the washing. I take off two matching socks and put them in the washing basket and somehow, ever so often, only one finds it’s way out of the wash. Where does the other one go??? But wait, it gets better! At one point I had bought a pack of 5 pairs of socks. I wore pairs 1 to 4 on consecutive days and when I got to the 5th pair, (Chang Chang Chaaaang!) there was only one! 😱😱😱 How??? There were 2 of them the day before! I kid you not! Where did it go??? Since that episode, I firmly believe in sock elves. It’s the only explanation! How else do you explain that missing sock? It didn’t even make it to the laundry basket! 🥺

So there you have, there are definitely some mysteries out there that we may never solve and thank goodness for that too. I believe it adds so spice to life🤪. What mysteries have you encountered??

  1. I’m definitely with you on the missing socks thing, I reckon they are all massing together to one day take over the world!

    Odd to have felt a presence by your bed with your ex. Very strange. I had a similar experience with an ex-girlfriend, the presence turned out to be her ex-boyfriend! (Only kidding…well not completely..)
