Been a long time lurker and had the odd post now and then, but I've decided i need to get some answers and who better than you guys.
For a number of years, pretty much about a year after we moved into our house which was in 2003, we started noticing little things which we didn't
really take much notice until we started piecing everything together.
Most of the things happen when either myself or my wife is on our own, which at first we didn't believe each other and just dismissed it to the other
person being over imaginative or tired at the time.
I'll try and list the type of things we've experienced in chronological order, this are the things that have happened from around June 2004 but i
wouldn't be able to give dates or anything, just rough times.
Heavy banging noticed by myself whilst in the shower, sounded as if someone was knocking the door vry hard and very loud, the typical 4 knocks most
people do, but as if it was done with the flat of their hand with force. Took me about 30 seconds to get out the shower as it sounded urgent due to
the loudness. looked out of my top bedroom window which looks down on my front door nothing, checked a CCTV montior i had in my man cave at the time
and door was clear.
Our driveway opens out onto the street and within 30 seconds there's a big distance to cover if someone run.
Also check the back door which is in an enclosed garden that leads onto an open field again, the time i got out and checked and got to the back of the
house i would have still been able to see them leaving.
Also though about the shower and pipes, tried turning it off and on a few times and got no similar noises.
Stepped back into the shower and left the door open to the bathroom and as soon as i got back in the 4 knocks, 4 very loud bangs echoed again. I
turned off the shower and checked the doors again...and nothing.
This has never happened since. Once my wife had come home i got her to hit the front door as i think it sounded on the glass, and it sounded very
close, but only when she banged it from the inside of the door not the outside.
Perfume, Cigar Smoke are the two most heavy smells we get right up until present day. The cigar though is as if someone is blowing it directly at you
from a very close distance. No body smokes or has smoked in the house since we moved in.
Perfume is only found under the stairs and kitchen. It's a very old smell, sweet and nothing my wife would wear.
Windows we're shut at the time and are double glazed with no drafts coming through, so tried to rule out anything coming from outside.
Both my wife and i have seen these.
One night both sat watching TV and from behind the set floated up a bubble, it was very clear and stayed on the same 'flight path', no wobbling or
swaying or change of speed, as if it was on a track going from bottom to the top of the room.
There was no oily sheen that you normally find in childs bubbles. It was about the size of a tennis ball. Once it reached the top of the ceiling, it
vanished into the ceiling, not popped, actually went into the ceiling.
Both of us we're gobsmacked and glued to our chairs just staring back and forth at each other.
I then witnessed this the next 2 days, one outside in the garden.....floated infront of me, no oily sheen, no wobbling, just still gliding across
until it vanished through a fence.
The third was at Cardiff Millenium Stadium watching Oasis. We were stood quite a distance up the stands and noticed this bubble, three seats down,
which i also showed to my friend, who was also shocked at it and how it moved straight without moving until it vanished through a post.
My first ideas on this was a kids bubble making machine or neighbors blowing bubbles, but this doesn't make sense for the one in the living room,
still no idea how to explain.
I've been poked in my sides
I've had my forearms smoothed
I've had my face touched
My wife has had her faced touched and stroked (more than anyone else)
Taps on the shoulder
Father in law has had taps on the shoulder when doing maintenance inside the house
I've not seen any actual figures, dark shadowy objects in my peripheral vision which vanish when i turn around
My wife on the other hand has seen and old man in our bedroom facing the corner of the wall, which i joked was i the blair witch, i didn't get a
laugh back unfortunately, i had teary eyes from her and a single bed for a few nights. It really did scare her. All other times she hasn't been so
bad when seeing the figure which is always in the same place in the room.
My little girl was born in 2007 and through her life of growing up she comes out with various things. After my mum passed away in 2009, she used to
stair at the ceiling and point and say " door daddy door!" and then start to play peek a boo at the ceiling.
Laugh uncontrollably at corners of the room or when she was over somebodies should facing the other way.
Running downstairs when she was 5 talking about 2 old women she saw in the wardrobe in our bedroom
And most recently, telling my wife when it has just been the two of them in the house "Does it feel like we're not alone in the house mummy?" and
"Have i died before?"
When she was about 7 she told us at the dinner table who was at her 1st birthday party and how she could see all the people and named them all apart
from a soldier with a gun. We have video of her first birthday and the photos we have only really show her in her crib and her frillies on, no people
at all, so there is no on way she could have seen from video of photo's. She then mentioned the soldier again and drew a picture of him
She particularly liked his red jacked and gold buttons and he had a big black hat.
Just to express, there was no soldiers or fancy dress at the gathering.
My Niece has seen black smoke on the stairs and my borther in law has seen an old woman in the kitchen, no further descriptions on those as we don't
see them anymore , wonder why!
So i'm just asking really if anyone can throw any light on what we are seeing or if it's just random stuff that there isnt anything to worry about.
History of Events
Here's some history on events during this time that may some or no insignificance
The house is a 1933 semi detatched in Wales UK. One previous owner, which was a brother and sister that lived there until they died. Unsure if it was
in the house or not.
Both my parents have passed in or around this period one in 2003 and one in 2009.
Since we have moved in we have had extremely bad luck, with family passing away, money issues, health problems. Again, not sure if this is just a bad
coincidence or what, i'm not sure.
We are a very easy going family, full of laughter and love and have no hatred for anything or anyone in life, but have just come across some bad
Any ideas or help would be awesome as i know there's alot of knowledge with you guys and would appreciate any help you can throw our way.
