Excuse the long story
When we moved home last August (grade 2 listed, almost 200years old) in woodlesford, I thought as a believer that we must have a ghost.couple of things happened (lights and tv switched on in the night) but I didn’t mind, I accepted it as part of our new home. after a couple of months, once every week or so I started waking up in the early hours to a noise on the stairs - a light banging sound on wooden stairs, few seconds between each one, longer pause (turn right and up another 5 stairs), few seconds of nothing (carpet) then our bedroom door flying open. Told husband (total non believer) he said it was heating/air circulating round the house etc. Wasn’t til December time when it happened that i felt scared and froze, when the bedroom door opened I shouted stop it, it’s our house now. Husband heard it all..still said heating etc. So I had decided for some reason it was an old man with a walking stick, don’t know why.
Anyhoo..heard nothing since, couple of incidents but felt at peace, like we had a mutual understanding. In April we went to our local, and a guy we know was talking to a woman from Cas and was getting a bit agitated as she was telling him things about his mum who passed away a few years ago.to divert the situation I asked her to tell the ghost in my house to stop messing about on the stairs, she said oh yeah you live in a old house don’t you.I sceptically thought that was perhaps a leading question, got served at the bar and went to our friends. After the 4th time of her coming over and asking me why I thought it was an old man, i asked her to tell me what she needed to. She said it was a girl bouncing a ball,because she didn’t want us to turn her playroom into an office! When we’d moved in we discussed at great lengths about what to do first..decided on lounge, spare room to be an office for husband who had just started a new job where he would work from home, then kitchen. And the last time I’d heard the noises was the day after the hardwood flooring was put in, which completed the room.
I asked why I hadn’t heard from her for a while and she said because she actually quite liked it, and plus I also told her to go away, and this then freaked me out so I made my excuses and went away, she was gone not long after.
I think at some point I would like to have a similar conversation with someone, just wasn’t the right time or place. Only husband in the pub who knew my story, nobody else in the pub had seen her before or since, and I was sober enough to remember the conversation, verified a week later by the barmaid. Wish I’d asked the previous owners of their experiences but didn’t want to scare our 11year old daughter- people have told us about doors slamming shut etc. I’ve seen many clairvoyants over the years and truly believe that if you let it then the other side will come through to you so listen and embrace it,
