I have seen many strange things over the years and the odd person who others can't see. Over the past 5 years this seems to have increased. I decided to take advantage of any early night as my four children where fast asleep and my husband was busy on the computer. (With four children this is rare in our house! I hadn't been asleep very long when without opening my eyes I realized that someone was in the room. At first I thought this was one of the children as they often come in. I called out for them to get back into bed but the feeling wouldn't go. I opened my eyes and suddenly a smallish middle aged man dressed in work boots, zip up rain jacket and bag over his shoulder appeared from out of the mirror in the hallway! He smiled sweetly, waved and walked down the landing! I sat there for a few minutes and thought about whether I had really seen this when I heard another noise. I could hear my youngest twin daughter talking and giggling in her room. Now I will admit I have seen my fair share of spirit people but even this had me a little on edge. I tiptoed out the room and peeped into the room and was amazed to see my daughter sitting up in bed playing with toys and talking, whilst my eyes focused on a tall lady sitting on the edge also playing with the toys. My daughter looked up at me and continued playing. The two of them were enjoying themselves and I backed out the room as I felt that I was intruding!
I asked my daughter in the morning who she had been playing with but she only refers to her as the tall lady. She isn't scared at all but happy to tell me that she comes and plays all the time. I did some research and have an idea that this may have been the previous owner as she was known to love children.
Another week went by and I was sitting in the living room talking to my oldest daughter who is twelve when half way through the conversation she got up and walked in to the kitchen. She reappeared and asked where her dad was. I explained that he was cutting the trees down at the back of the house. My daughter replied that he couldn't be as she had just seen him walk from the hall way right passed her, close enough that she lifted her feet up for him to go passed, and into the kitchen. She described a man shorter than my husband with longer hair and wearing blue pyjamas. My husband doesn't own any blue pairs!
Where do these people keep coming from? I don't really mind but these aren't people I have known to pass on. A friend has suggested taking the mirror off the hallway landing, but I don't think this would help.
Does anybody have any ideas why they seem happy to come into a noisy, chaotic household like mine!
