We lived, overseas, in a flat which was the upper half of a house. It was hot and we went to sleep with just a sheet covering us. During the night I was regularly aware of OH getting up to go to the bathroom and when he returned, coming to my side of the bed, pulling the blanket up from the foot of the bed and tucking it round me, patting my shoulder when he'd finished.
Some time later, we were talking with friends and the subject of simple acts of kindness came up. I gave this as an example of OH's kindness and he went pale. Apparently, he'd experienced exactly the same thing, only I was doing the tucking in.
A few years later, we were posted to another country and met another couple who, we found out, had lived in the same flat. Her first words after that were, "Did you get tucked in at night still?"

I've had a few incidents over the years that stick in my mind. Ones that other people have witnessed too. 1st one I recall was when I was about 17, I worked in a sandwich shop on a weekend with a friend and we took it in turns to serve customers when they came in. She was making a sandwich order up and I was washing up. Someone came into the shop and as I walked away from the sink to serve them, my apron snagged on something and pulled me back a little. As I pulled it free and walked on a few steps I suddenly realised there was nothing to snag on! My friend had seen my apron "held" back as if someone had grabbed the bottom of it ... Freaked us both out !!! Most recent was last Christmas Eve. I was at work with my other half and as I looked out of the window, I saw a lady I know waiting to cross a busy road with her 3 daughters, husband and an older lady who I presumed to be either her mum or her mum in law. It turned out they were going to a local restaurant for lunch. I commented to my husband that they'd have been quicker walking a short way up the road to use the crossing as they'd been trying to cross for a good five minutes. This older lady was in the centre of the group, wore glasses and had a beige coat on with a red patterned scarf tucked inside. After the Christmas holidays I bumped into the lady I know and commented that I'd seen them all on Christmas Eve and asked if it was her mum or her husbands mum that was with them. She looked at me as if I was crazy and said there had been no one else with them, just her hubby and daughters !!! This older lady was not stood by the side trying to cross with them, she was slap bang in the centre of the group and as solid as a real person. Asked my husband later that day who was inthe group and he mentioned her too ! Can't explain it !! There are a few other incidents inbetween but that was the most recent.
Ghosts imply an afterlife; the evidence for which is non-existent. Blurred, indistinct objects that look, if one were to squint, like facial features simply doesn't cut it. However, there is the very real phenomenon known as pareidolia...

... that shows us that our cognitive pattern recognition systems are acute and that we see patterns in random data where no patterns exist.
Working a night shift I placed 2 long toms ( heavy 4 wheeled wooden barrows ) ends together ready to unload newspapers later that morning. It was a cold frosty night with no wind. As I went to walk away one barrow moved apart and rolled about ten feet, the hairs on my neck stood up and I walked rather fast to my office locking the door behind me. When the papermen returned I told them and we tried to move the barrows in the same way but failed. 13 hours later a man jumped under a train from that spot and died, do I believe in the paranormal , I don't know, but how to explain it ?
What spookily specific questions. where is the category 'I think I might have seen something not spooky whilst driving inside and might believe in them'
When I was 11 in 1949 I was staying at a house in Woolton , I got up in the middle In the night for a drink and a Monk walked past me and through the wall I also distinctly heard the slap of his slippers behind me .
Every morning when I look in the mirror... proof that there is life after death !
