This experience happened in the Summer of 1994 Rotherham South Yorkshire England, when I had the day off work.
I decided I'd visit my mom and nan, who lived 10 minute's walk from me up the hill. So, as it was a lovely warm summer's day in the afternoon, I walked up to the house. As I came to the top of the hill and crossed over the road, there was one of the neighbours, Mrs S., coming down West Avenue towards the main road, dressed as she usually did in a long camel-coloured mac, carrying her shopping bag and crossed over the road diagonally.
This was a lady I've known my whole life. A kind neighbour who often had brought presents back from holidays for my brother, sister and me. I waved to her. She didn't respond, which was very odd as she would normally have stopped for a chat. We were getting closer to each other. She on one side of the road and me on the other. As we were passing each other, I kept waving to her and she kept ignoring me. The atmosphere was weird: no sounds, no cars or people about either, only us two.
When I got to my mom and nan's house and commented on the old neighbour who was acting strangely, my mother looked at me a bit funny, saying that it was impossible because she had passed over a few years previous.
I had completely forgotten (having got married and moved in to a flat and a new job) that she had passed over!
I'm not sure what to make of this experience. Could it have been some sort of time slip? Or was it her ghost still around going about her normal daily routine?
