Is this a ghost or a burglar?

The odd stuff has always gone missing in the house, but due to having 4 kids you think people pick things up and move them/ forget to put them back.
A couple of weeks ago £20 went missing of the side, everyone swears blind it wasn't them. I can't not believe them due to the fact anytime the want money they ask and with in reason get it.
But things keep moving.
Today I came in under the kitchen sink the cupboard is open and loads of stuff pulled out ... no teenage son had not had an epiphany and started Cleaning.
Then the bubble bath had been taken from the downstairs bathroom and moved to the upstairs bathroom... where there's no bath?
I know I sound potty but everyone swears it wasn't them.
Do either someone is coming into the house while we're out - I have often wondered this due to other weird occurrences or we have a ghost or someone's telling me porkies!!
I am thinking too extreme to buy a camera?

Buy a camera.

Does anyone have keys for your home? Did you change the locks when you moved in?

Buy a camera .

I would say 100% likely that one or two of your kids are a) playing a prank on you b) playing a prank on each other.

No we didn't change the locks. I wish I had now!
Checking out amazon for a camera.
DH thinks I am going mad! 🤪

Or someone is living in your loft...?

Absolutely, totally not placemarking. I love these threads grin

How long has it been going on for and how old are your children?

I'd go for getting a camera.

I had considered a loft liver - but it's too small. I have been in the house alone, unexpectedly and thought I heard someone. But no one responded when I called.

Camera is on order. Will be here Thursday. I felt a bit creepy when you see people's also bought things like binoculars.

I will either catch a creepy person who lives in the woods coming in for something to eat and a shower. Or one of DC or DH thinking they're a funny sod!

£20 was probably the teenager, although you won’t believe it.

I’d install ca,era without telling anyone..

Notasyoungasiwas Tue 12-Jun-18 20:55:12

Ooh - can’t wait for Thursday nowsmile

Kate123cl Tue 12-Jun-18 21:01:44

My house is just like this! Lol put it down to being ghost having lived here for 19 years and it's happened as long as I can remember! Loads of unexplainable things smile

mummabeargrr Tue 12-Jun-18 21:03:36

Not told anyone about the camera grin

It's small with motion sensors which streams to my phone. So should see any bugger and what they're up to.

Could you leave another £20 on the side and tell everyone that it’s there and not to move it? That way, if it goes missing, then you know it’s someone outside the family.

AnneOfCleavage Tue 12-Jun-18 21:05:05

Definitely get a camera but DO NOT TELL THE DC OR DP in case they are playing tricks on you.

Roll on Thursday and keep us involved.

Floods123 Tue 12-Jun-18 21:07:21

Can't wait!

Is it Thursday yet? grin

DianaPrincessOfThemyscira Tue 12-Jun-18 22:25:12

Well I can 100% tell you it’s not a ghost...

KitKatCHA Tue 12-Jun-18 22:26:27

My bet is on the kids pulling pranks not placemarking

KioraAdora Tue 12-Jun-18 22:28:12

OMG dont tell them about the camera.

Clear your Amazon history.

snewname Tue 12-Jun-18 22:29:29

Taking my place just out of the camera angle.

GreggsSausageRolls Tue 12-Jun-18 22:30:15

Blatantly placemarking.

iheartmichellemallon Tue 12-Jun-18 22:31:35

That would really bug me Op - hope you get to the bottom of it.
