This isn't really about ghosts, but it's still rather weird, so here goes...
About a year ago, my dad was at a concert a couple of villages away from ours one night. He hadn't been out in ages as he'd been so tied up with work, so it wasn't a regular thing for us not to have him at home.
Both he and I have always been more aware
of things - deja vu, knowing when the phone's going to ring, who's going to call etc - and also seem to have some sort of connection between us.
Anyway, on this particular evening, my Mum became seriously ill. Usually I know how to deal with it, how to bring her round, but this time I couldn't. With my little brother in bed, and Dad 20 miles away, the only thing I could do was call for an ambulance. It took them about 20 minutes to arrive, during which time I tried to call Dad, but his phone was switched off. I gave up trying and went back to tending to my mum. Half an hour later, the paramedics had brought her round, so I tried to call Dad again. This time he answered, and told me he was on his way home. The concert wasn't even halfway through, so I asked him why he was coming home, and he said that he'd been feeling really panicky all evening and knew that something wasn't right, so had decided to come home.
I don't know if anything's ever been proven, but there have been a number of events like this in the last year, and either my dad or I can sense how the other is feeling, even if we're at opposite ends of the country. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
As for ghosts, well, I think my bedroom's haunted
. When I start a new piece on the violin, one which is particularly expressive or in a minor key, I quite often feel someone walk past me, or the door will close or I'll think I can feel a hand on my shoulder. It's probably just my imagination running away with me, but a number of times I've been convinced someone is listening to me.
