I don't want to freak you out or confuse you anymore than you probably feel already, so I will say a mix of what most people have already said.
Firstly, get your toilet fixed. If nothing appears to be broken, either call a plumber to double check, or ensure there are no ornaments or wall
fixings that may be able to fall onto your toilet handle (presuming you have a handle attatched to the side, rather than a long chain from the
Secondly, check what time your boiler is set to turn on? Are you using central heating within your house that may be programmed to come on later in
the morning, but may have a faulty timer? This may explain any tapping noise. If not, I would again call a plumber to maybe flush the pipes in the
house. Were you given any boiler documents/ recent servicing reports from the previous owners of the house? As you've only been in the house for a
few months, is it possible that the different seasons may cause changes to your house? Say, do you notice any creaking sounds at the hottest part of
the day (if it's an old, wooden house, possible expansion). Have you noticed any birds nesting or can animals gain access to the roof by climbing up a
Thirdly, youngsters have quite avid imaginations. I know this is a scapegoat explanation, but it is quite often the case. Has your child recently
had a conversation with you or anybody else in the family about your mother prior to the dream? Is it possible that she may have spoken to other
children in a playgroup/ class that may have talked about their grandparents, leading her to think about her own? Did she give you a distinct
description of what your mother looked like when she told you? If so, does it sound like a description of any photos she may have seen of her, i.e.
the same outfit, in which case she could just be replicating this image into her own thoughts? I once told my mum I could fly (I was about 4 or 5), I
was so convinced, and angry that she didn't believe me, that I kept trying to fly by jumping off the bed and 'concentrating' whilst trying to hone in
my skill. Funny now, and ridiculous that I even had a list of instructions on how to do it, but what I mean is that sometimes things can seem so real
to kids that the details of things can seem quite intense.
Some of those explanations may seem a bit out there, but they may offer a more rational answer if you're feeling quite anxious. I hope you find some
answers to your problem.
