Strange Happenings

I've always had a interest in everything paranormal. As a child, I would see and hear things that couldn't be explained. At the time, I thought it was normal. It wasn't until much later in my life that I realized, not everyone experiences these things.

I've started this blog as a way to communicate with others who have experienced things out of the ordinary. And on occasion, a great ghost story wouldn't go astray :)So if you have any real or fictional, feel free to send them along.

My first post is going to relay my last experiences in the house I just sold. It was my first house and I will never forget the happenings that went on there in the short two years I lived there.

I'll start with a little history on the house.

It was built in 1940(estimate) and belonged to one family. It wasn't a large house, two levels and a crawlspace, three bedrooms and one bathroom. I bought the house because I got a great deal, it needed lots of work but I was ok with that.

During the first month, we ripped the living room out and put up new drywall. This appeared to have stirred something.

The following happened within the span of two years. None of which I can explain.

- The microwave would beep, when not plugged in.
- A music box downstairs would play on it's own, multiple times in two years. It had to be physically wound.
- Doors upstairs, would open and shut on their own.
- Things appeared to be moving around the house on their own. If you laid down an object. It wasn't surprising to find it in another room.
- I did see an apparation once. She stood on the side of my bed and reached down to touch my cat who was asleep on my chest. She wore what looked to be grey pants and a red top. She looked elderly. The vision was blurred but I could make that much out. When I jumped out of bed and turned on the bedroom light, she was gone. Needless to say my cat freaked out when she made contact.
- The last thing I spotted was a black mist, almost like fog, floating around my bedroom light fixture. After that, I slept with the light on in my bedroom.

Further history on the house:

- There was one death in the house, a woman, who was elderly. This was told to me by a neighbour who had lived on the street for the past fifty years.
- The general area use to be populated by pubs that dated in the 1700's. So, can anything be pinpointed in my experiences? Not really, sometimes it can just be the land that's haunted and not the building. So who knows?

I hope you enjoyed my first post in this blog. I look forward to hearing your own experiences. If you would like to add them to the blog, contact me.



  1. Argh!

    I'll be reading your new blog from behind my sofa. ;)


  2. Yes! I'm always happy to read about the paranormal and the experiences everyone has. I've had a few from time to time and tend to enjoy them.

  3. It's such an innocent looking little house for all that weird stuff to be happening in it!

    I've always loved the strange and unexplained too. What a great idea for a blog!

  4. Innocent looking, yes. But towards the end, before I sold the house, I had enough. I can take a lot and I'm not one to scare easily. The black mist stuff did freak me out. To this day it's left a lasting impression on me.

  5. Do you think that when you look for housing in the future you will enquire about any possible hauntings before you commit to buy?

  6. Blue- It never even struck to me ask. But of course with any older home or even the land, it's a possibility that there may be a haunting on the go.
    While it was scary for me, it could have been worst and I am thankful for that at least.
    I didn't sell because it was haunted but I think I would have in time if I had stayed and the stuff kept happening. It's unnerving after a bit, even for someone like me who has had experience with it.
