What's That Funny Smell?

I awoke sometime between 12 - 1 a.m. and noticed a very peculiar smell in the room.  It was very much like the aroma of stale cigarettes that clings to the clothing and hair of a heavy smoker.

Neither P nor I have ever been smokers so it would definitely not have come from one of us, and it wasn't there when we went to bed.

I have often woken and noticed the distinctive smell of mice when they have once again infiltrated our loft, but this was something different.

It had disappeared by this morning and I thought that perhaps it was just something to do with my hay fever allergy, however, when I mentiuoned it to P he said that he had noticed it too.

Very strange.

    1. The house is not that old - built in the early 1920s. We have lived here for 28 years and not noticed it before. Just can't think what would have caused it.

    1. I hope that we can discover the cause. It is quite puzzling.

  3. Oh yes. Sounds like 'someone' was checking up on you. Not trying to scare you or anything lol. Our visitor is usually a bit noisier.
    Got any ex-smoking relatives?

    1. My Dad was a heavy smoker but he died almost 14 years ago now so he's left it a bit late to pop over for a visit. Mind you, he did have dementia at the end so perhaps he just forgot.

  4. Do ghosts smoke fags? If they do, their chosen brand will probably be "Benson and Hedges" - responsible for thousands of deaths in Great Britain. I wonder what ghosts do in the daytime...

    1. Don't be silly YP. There's no such thing as ghosts. Nor Father Christmas. I am sorry, but someone has to break it to you.

    2. Next you'll be claiming that there are no tooth fairies nor pots of gold at the ends of rainbows and that Cinderella's coach was not made magically from a pumpkin. Honestly, what DO you believe in JayCee?

  6. Queue the spooky music ... keep us posted on that one eh.
    So pleased you mentioned the smell of mice, I thought it was just me who got that. I get it when they've nested under the floorboards of the back lounge. It's exacerbated by the under floor heating. They must be Finnish mice and pining for the sauna.
