  1. I lived above the old thatch for 18 months, whilst I never saw an apparition, things would move periodically… I once came home and found a knife stuck in my sofa… no one did it and it’s a mystery to this day how it happened to be there, TV remotes would go missing for weeks, full Cigarette packets would disappear and then reappear in a different location.
