  • No,not the wailing sheets floating around...the spirit ghost.Do you beleive the sky is really blue?
    Well,Eddie and Joyce bought an olf Farmhouse,not the run of mill farmhouse but that of a Landowner.Bigger and better than your average farmhouse.It was a huge place even had six rooms in the attic for servants,two seperate entrances and sleeping quarters especially for the children.Really big and very old.
    Eddie and Joyce had no children of their own,but had adopted two slightly backward children...not mentally retarded but slightly backward.They all moved into this big house.I,in the meantime had been putting electric into all the rooms.I had lots of problems,the worst being thsat things somehow seemed to move around a lot.Leave a temporary light somewhere ,next day it was somewhere else.I thought kids got in there at night.
    The family moved in,lovely size,the two kids were over the moon,their own bedrooms and their own playroom.The patrents bedroom at the other end of the house.They had lived there a few weeks,when eddy went to the toilet during the night,the toilets were sort of halfway between the kids rooms and the family rooms.
    As he was going down he heard the childrens voices,they seemed to be playing touch.Now it takes more than two to play touch,he thought.
    He took a stroll up to the childrens rooms and there they were running around,but slower than they usually were.Seeing him,they stopped,looking quite upset.Being a nice,cheerful guy,eddie smiled and asked about the playing.The children told him that this other little boy came in every night and they played games.They described the boy and told Eddie they had to play slower because he had a broke leg.
    Now,I know what you all think,backward children,huh,but thats not true.Teir story was checked in the Parish records,the house was listed in there with all the occupants listed.It turns out that a young boy died there after breaking his leg in a riding accident.All these details are listed,including the name of the boy ,which the two children called him by.
    Do you still not beleive.Well,Eddie sold the house,when the M4 was completed at an enormous profit to a company director and family.They moved in,but quickly moved out when things started to move around at night.
    The ghost or spirit has since been quieted and is no longer a problem to its present owners,who,incidentally do not beleive in ghosts(or spirits)
