I honestly don't know if they fall under ghostly, but definatly out of the ordinary.
My first experience was when I was very young and I Remember coming home from a dinner with my family and as we entered our house, we noticed a
cushion which was normally in our bedroom was on the floor at the end of the hall, sitting up right with the picture (Bassets allsorts image) Facing
us as we entered.
Nothing really spooky per se', but it wasn't there when we left and no one had entered the house when we were out.
When my dad and mum divorced, we sold the house and I Went to live with my mom in our new house.
The first weird thing we noticed was writing on the inside wall of the understairs cupboard, it read something along the lines of....
"You lock me up in here, you bad master"
The house was about 100 years old
Then we started noticing weird things going on.
First and foremost experience which affected us all and our guests, were loud bumps as if someone were hitting an internal or external wall with their
This happened many times, mainly during the night time and was experienced by friends, family and visitors.
It was so heavy you could feel it through the floor when it happened.
The other experience which stood out above all others, was when I was standing in the kitchen with my mother, we had our backs to each other and
something brushed against the back of my legs and I turned and said "oh sorry" thinking my mom had walked into me, she to had turned thinking i'd
walked into her, or a cat had brushed against her.
That freaked us both out, especially since we used to have a cat and it died in an accident.
We then moved to our new house (present house)
The experiences here weren't inside, but outside the house.
On the outside of our house there's a metal gate, about 3/4 feet tall, made of wrought (sp?) iron.
I can't being to count the number of times that gate would slam, as if someone had knocked into it or slammed it with rage.
IT would happen in any condition, wether there was wind or not.
It would mostly do it at night and because my bedroom upstairs is on the outside wall the gate's attached to, it would sound quite loud and vibrate
up the wall.
I'm an open minded person, it could've been cats knocking into it or something, but the force at which it slammed led me to believe it wasn't, the
force it slammed at was as if somoene had grabbed it and REALLY thrown it shut.
Proof of how much force had been applied during these times is evidence in the stone work (Gate posts), which are 2 feet thick, both have large cracks
in them where the gate has been slammed repeatedly
One day, and this is the last day it seems to have happened, the gate slammed as it allways did, but this time, part of the gate actually broke off
due to the force.
That's about it really, hope you enjoyed reading
