Over the years I had had many different experiences of the paranormal my first recollection was in 1985 when I was staying with my wife at her parent’s house, this was an old farmhouse listed in the Domesday Book so dating back to the twelfth century.
The house didn’t feel particularly creepy, but on this particular night we were sleeping downstairs in the living room, my wife was on the sofa and I was on the floor in front of the open fire. At some point, I woke to see a figure standing in the doorway he was wearing bib and brace overalls and was similar looking to my wife’s father.
Initially, I figured maybe he had forgotten his spectacles or something, but as the figure came closer I realised it was not my father-in-law. As he started to lean over to my wife, I swung my legs to try and knock him over shouting ‘get out’ as I did and knocking over the iron companion set in the hearth.
Then he was gone, my wife woke and with the noise and commotion her parents came down to see what was going on.
I explained what I had seen and described the individual and what he was wearing and it matched precisely my wife’s uncle who had died in the families woods wearing what I had described, I was previously unaware of this member of the family.
I didn’t dwell on this encounter, and it appeared he was maybe leaning over to give my wife a kiss on the forehead or something.
Over the coming weeks I will be posting all of my supernatural experiences. Follow the blog to receive updates as I post.
