Ghost In My House
Posted 21 December 2007 - 01:15 PM
Firstly, after arriving home from work one day with my boyfriend, I picked up our post from the hallway and walked into the bedroom. I felt something trying to tug the letters from my hand - I mean really hard, I had to keep a firm grip to make sure they weren't jerked out of my grasp! - and assumed my boyfriend was playing a trick on me. I turned around and told him to stop messing around... only to see that he wasn't standing behind me, he'd gone straight to the kitchen which is at the other end of the flat. There was nobody else in the room with me.
Twice, we have had a loud knocking on our bedroom door; both times, our housemate has been in her own room with her door shut, so it wouldn't have been posible for her to do it. (The doors in our house are heavy, and when they are opened or closed you can hear them dragging across the carpet, so it's possible to tell when someone moves in or out of another room.)
Several times, when I have been in the house on my own, I have heard movement in the lounge and the kitchen - noises such as crockery, cutlery and other items being moved around. We don't have any draughts in the house which could cause such heavy things to be moved without help.
I know that he landlord's mother used to live in our ground floor flat, and I think it may be her spirit which is here. Whatever is in the house, its presence does not feel malign or harmful; if anything, it seems to not mind us being here, and I think it is quite content to keep an eye on the house. (Our landlord is quite picky about cleanliness - perhaps the spirit is watching to make sure we keep the place in order!) I have spoken to it on a few occasions, asking it to watch some TV with me or come and sit with me for a while.
