I’ll be on the radio too!

Published by at 8:28 pm under Family Life,Renovations

This is turning out to be quite a week. As far as Friday night goes, I have learned that there will be 3 challenges and a prize will be given to whoever does the most!  I’m a little nervous wondering what they are going to do just to get us spooked – I think I am more nervous of that than the actual ghosts! 

Do you believe in ghosts? Do let me know in the comment box – I’d love to hear some opinions on it.  I sort of do yet I don’t believe that they are necessarily malicious (at least I hope not).  I wouldn’t like to stay in a spooky house on my own but there’ll be loads of us there on Friday night.  I can’t abide horror movies. Psycho is about my limit and films that involve blood and gore are a definite no-no.  I think the last one I wastched was Silence of the Lambs probably about 15 or more years ago and I can remember spending most of the film behind the sofa.

The whole ‘Fright Night’ has been organised by KCLR 96 FM and they are interviewing me on Friday morning on the Sue Nunn show – about my business, the business club (although the chairman of the business club will also be there, I’m delighted to say, so it will be more of a relaxed chat hopefully) and why on earth I would want to go ghost hunting in a former gaol.

Apologies for the lack of interior design posts but it is turning out to be a very busy week. My kitchen is half-decorated and I am determined to finish the walls tonight (I have to sand some repair work first – which I detest).  The new worktop still has to go in, finish painting the cupboard doors, new handles, clean up etc and that will be it, oh, and put a fresh coat of sadolin on the windows and hang the blinds – piece of cake by tomorrow evening!  Then we start the living room – new fireplace, paint the freshly plastered ceiling and paint the walls. They will be wallpapered at a later date (when the new carpet goes in) but we have visitors coming next Tuesday so I’m just painting it for the time being.

Something is telling me we won’t have time for a romantic meal on Saturday night.  I hope all those who purchased my heart-shaped dish sets have a lovely evening and that the orders from England arrive on time!

    You’ll be famous!!! I believe in ghosts, I saw one when I was about 12 and staying in a converted very old barn. I didn’t say a word about it and then my best friend described exactly the same thing the next day! It was a white lady all in white walking across the floor (from the direction of the – nowadays – boy’s toilets, so nobody living would have chosen to do that!) but she was totally unaware of me. It wasn’t at all scary, more like replaying a film. Argh, you’ll probably think I’m very odd now!

    No, I don’t think you’re odd! I was just hoping people would leave replies like – no, ghosts aren’t real, load of tosh etc!! I’m not nervous yet but am apprehensive!!
    I’ve never seen one but reckon there has to be some spirits out there for some reason or another. I don’t even believe in an afterlife necessarily so not sure why I believe in ghosts! I wouldn’t mind meeting Lucinda though(the one who was hanged after murdering her husband as he even horse-whipped her)!
