Halloween has come and gone with the usual excitement in our house. The excitement usually comes from Mrs H who loves carving the pumpkin. Other than that it's just like any other day. Usually...
This Halloween Mrs H had gone off for a night out with her friends leaving me at home. Our son went off to bed at his usual time leaving me with the remote control, a bowl of chilli and two cold cans of Kronenbourg 1664.
Oh how the night just flashed by in a haze of half watched films and channel surfing.
That was until 9pm when I chanced upon Most Haunted Live. Now this used to be a favourite of Mrs H's and although I don't think it's been on for years I left it on. http://really.uktv.co.uk/shows/most-haunted-live-halloween-special-2015/
I used to enjoy watching it for the stately homes they visited and the history lessons from Richard Felix (http://www.paranormalhistorian.co.uk/) and Leslie Smith (http://www.tutburycastle.com/?page_id=56) both of whom work within fifteen minutes of where I live.
As some of you may know I've been suffering with my back and so two cans of beer on top of the medication is sufficient to get me excited. I watched the team using a bit of kit called an EVP.
That sounds interesting, I thought because it translates static into spirit voices (or something like that)
Did you know you can get an app that does just that? No I didn't either until then.
Off I went, shuffling about the house in the dark clutching my detector and yes you guessed it nothing!
Until I went into our dining room and hung the detector over the hatch in the floorboard.
The picture below is from today but the words are the only words it has ever detected.
We've got friends coming for dinner next weekend and they want to do a Ouija, which is also available as an app. I'm not going to go for that. Not unless they bring two cans of Kronenbourg 1664 with them anyway.
