As it is getting closer to the end of October and dressing up like dead people I thought I would let you know of the goings on in my house…
Last night as I was finishing up some admin type stuff on the laptop and waiting for Mr. Leah to return from “sorting” the garage out, I opened this bottle of Rosé thinking that he would probably appreciate a glass when he came in.
I poured a glass, put the cork back in the bottle, about half way down the neck and returned to the laptop. I left the bottle on the counter top as it was quite chilled so could do with warming up a bit. He duly came in, sat down and decided he would like a glass of red instead and opened this:
(A very nice wine, if you haven’t tried it yet )
As we are chatting and having a bit of a laugh, the cork, which was WELL wedged into the bottle of Rosé popped out of the bottle and landed next to it on the countertop. We both looked at each other and said “The GHOST again” ….
This is a still wine, there is NO pressure in the bottle . Also, things like this regularly happen in this house.
We live in a Victorian house which was built in 1889, the deeds are pretty fascinating . We did a HUGE renovation project on it with major structural alterations which took over 4 years to complete. (Mainly because we kept running out of money). The usual type of things that happen include jumping and rolling toys, usually at night time when the kids are in bed and the dog is as confused as I am, toy cars with no batteries in them whizzing around the floor. Lights turning themselves on and off! (We’ve had a re-wire ) and items being knocked off counter tops.
I always think its just the “spirits” looking for attention and once I acknowledge them it stops for a while again. Am I mad ?? It doesn’t bother me in the slightest.
The only time I was MASSIVELY freaked out was when I heard a voice on the baby monitor shushing my baby son and looked at the screen to see a ball of white light whizzing around him! . I was up that stairs faster than Usain Bolt.
But apart from that, I am completely fine with the “others” coming to visit.
Does anyone else have similar experiences in their homes or do you all think I’m just mad ?
