Reading your post reminded me a lot of something my mother experienced when I was around 4 years old - around 35 years ago now but she never had
anything like it before or since but it still mystifies her and was put down to some sort of strange 'premonition'.
Apparently my Auntie had taken me and my cousin ( aged 3) out for a walk to the park, leaving my mother alone in the house. We had been out for some
time when my mum looked out of the window and saw the three of us returning, walking down the path towards the house ( we lived in the last house at a
'dead-end'). She saw me sitting in my cousin's pushchair (stroller), with my leg elevated and crying, being pushed by my auntie an my cousin
walking next to her. Seeing us, she boiled the kettle to make us a warm drink as it was a cold day.
Expecting us to come through the door at any moment, she waited, and waited......nobody came through the door. She looked again out of the window but
nobody was there. She felt anxious at where we could possibly have gone but could only wait. About an hour later we arrived home and she opened the
door to find me, as she had seen before, in the pushchair, my leg elevated, grazed knee, crying etc. She grilled my auntie as to where we had been,
why we did not come home an hour ago when she saw us approaching.
My auntie, confused, insisted, and still does to this day, that she had been at the park all of that time but returned home right away when I fell
over and hurt my knee!
As I mentioned, she has never forgotten this event ad is not typically prone to flights of fancy or doesn't have any interests in psychic phenomena
etc. This was a first for her, and a last, as far as I know!
A premonition could be an explanation.
I think also our brains sometimes hear familiar 'cues' for familiar events that happen regularly, such as your husband returning home and maybe
piece together sounds and sights that are similar to those expected but not actually happening. Don't know if that makes sense.....kind of 2+2=5
scenario. The dog reacting with excitement is also suggestive that it wasn't just your imagination!
Hope you are able to make sense of it somehow!
