A slightly freaky sight this morning. Following an accident last night with the cooking and a bad case of negligence on my part, quite a bit of muck was on the hob – so I applied a liberal coating of “generic hob cleaning stuff: Brand A” and left it over night.

Woke up and went in to be greeted by this…

kitchen hob

Being a bit of a fan of Egyptology, I instantly recognised the shape as being significant. More exactly, I recognised the shape and its significance, then spent ages on Google and trawling through some books to try and remember what it is called.

It is similar to the Egyptian Solar Disc surrounded by two snakes (Uraeus). It represents the God Horus in the form of his battle with Set – and the two snakes are the goddesses Nekhbet and Uazet.

OK – do I really think that the Egyptian God Horus paid a visit to my flat overnight – well, no I don’t.

It is an interesting formation overnight which looks significant, but only because it is in a shape I recognise. Had it been in the shape of (for example) the logo to some reality TV show, I wouldn’t have even recognised it.

I am however, curious as to how the cleaning fluid pulled away so cleanly to leave the lines, and also how the lines are consistant regardless of the thickness of the cleaning fluid I left out overnight.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Hello friend!
    Did the Egyption god paid you a visit….well as you said…you dont really think so but what i believe in situations like these it’s not really about the fact whether the Egyption god paid you a visit or not….more like the fact that you recognised the shape and then did a lot of reading about it and as you read all these informations you might have realised something about yourself that an energy of some sort(maybe like a guardian angel)wanted you to know or wanted you to realise.These words that the energy wanted you to read appear in these scripts of the Egyption god so…in a way….You actually were visited by the egyption god.
    So please continue to look for sighns like these…it will open you up even more spiritually!
    I enjoyed your story very much!
