My sister told me a story tonight that made my hair stand on end but I have to explain a few things first.
I was born in Sheffield and lived in a small village called Oxspring about 20 miles from the town centre until I was 16 when my Mum and Dad got divorced and sold the house I grew up in.
The house which was built (I think) in 1857 was situated virtually in the middle of nowhere on the top of a hill. Very few houses and farms were scattered here and there and I remember when I was younger there was no gas, no phones, no main sewers and no street lights there so at night because we didn't live near a big city there was no lighting pollution and so you can imagine when it turned dark and you were bed it was pitch black and very scary.
The house haunted me for 16 years with its creaks and groans. Gales and storms would rage outside causing powercuts making it the perfect scene from a horror movie. I was convinced there was something lurking not from this life but maybe that was my overactive childhood imagination, but I did experience a couple of things during the time I lived there.
I always used to sleep with the landing light on and when I was about 8 years old I woke up one night and I remember looking over to my dressing table and thinking what the hell is that. There sat on top of the dresser was a black cat, we had a black cat at the time but he would never stay in the house at night and this cat was definately not mine, It was a scrawny, flea bitten, mangy small cat and as I watched too terrified to move or scream, it stood up and opened it eyes, arched its back and opened its mouth as if it was going to hiss, although it never seemed to ackgnowlegde I was there. By now I was so scared I closed my eyes and prayed that the morning would come, I was paralysed with fear and could not move, eventually I must have fallen asleep. Early next morning it had gone with no sign what so ever of it ever being there, nothing had been disturbed. I rushed down and told my Mum & Dad what I saw but they laughed and told me I had been dreaming, then I went to the door and let my cat in. I have never forgot that night, but as I have got older I wondered if it was just a dream.
Another thing for some reason the landing upstairs and the staircase itself also gave me the creeps, I always got the feeling someone was following me when I went downstairs, and a few occastions the hairs on my neck would stand on end for no reason and I would shoot downstairs as fast as I dare without breaking my neck because the presense was so strong.
Anyhow what I'm getting round to is that my sister works for a car dealership and was telling me tonight this man came in not long back to buy a car. It turns out he lives in our old house because my sister recognised the address when they were doing his paperwork. They got chatting and he said that if at anytime we wanted to go and visit him we could to see the work he had done on it since we moved out, although several people have bought and sold it inbetween. He then went on to ask if anything funny happened while we lived there, so my sister asked him what like. Before she carried on I laughed and said jokingly did he say he had ever seen a black cat and she said yes how did I know that. Every hair on my body stood on end, my sister never knew about what I saw that night. He also went on to tell her he has seen the spirit of a man on the staircase, things move about all the time, plants throw themselves off window sills, lights turn on and off by theselves etc, how scary is that, so was it a dream eh.
How come though I only ever saw it once but hes seen it loads of times?
Weird thing was on Saturday, I took a friend out for a ride in the countryside and I took him to see this house to show him where I grew up. It still haunts me to this day as I dream about it often but my dreams are always dark and sinister.
I know that the house used to be a pub and also at one time a butchers shop but I can find no history on the internet what so ever, there is a stone plaque on the front of it which says "Reward of Industry, G Knowles, 1857", but I have no idea what this means, my sister reckons it could have been build before 1857 and the date is when this Reward of Industry was given. I wish I could find out more.
So there you go, hope I din't bore you with that lol.
Happy Birthday Rhonda Elizabeth, hope I've got the right day!!!

What's the point in buying a 5' x 3 1/2' poster if your not gonna put it up on the wall? I decided that since its been rolled up gathering dust for over 3 years its time to put it up and guess what no one can tell me to take it down lol.

I thought I would give it one last go at growing my hair before I get too old only its got to just past collar length and doesn't seem to want to grow anymore. I have it cut at least once every 6 weeks on the ends to keep it neat but it just won't grow lol.
Anyhow I bought some extensions the other day, the colour match is exact but I just can't make up my mind up if they suit me or not lol, I'll post some pictures of them next time I wear them.
They are really clever, long strips of human hair that you cut down to the desired width and attach at the roots with small clips so your own hair hides them and they weren't that pricey either compared to permenant extensions.
Halfway there to the weekend, can't wait am having another busy week at work
Hugs - Kate.
