My fiancée, Claire, is a nurse, so therefore works various shifts. Some of these shifts involve working nights, and as a result, I am left home alone. This normally OK, as it gives me chance to watch TV that she doesn’t like – mainly South Park and Family Guy. Last night, for whatever reason, I got a bit freaked out.

First of all, I read a tweet from somebody who had just experienced a giant spider run across them, while they sat on the sofa. That was it – I looked all over my own sofa, moving cushions, expecting to find a creature myself. I didn’t find one.

I don’t like scary films. I don’t like being made to jump while watching them. I don’t find them entertaining, so avoid anything within the horror genre. I therefore don’t appreciate it when, in the middle of some light hearted comedy, TV channels decides to show an advert for some horrible film, with a shit your pants scary scene. The latest instance of this was an advertisement for a movie called Annabelle. The Internet Movie Database describes Annabelle as

A couple begin to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.


The advert for this film, shown in between one for Baked Beans and Cushelle toilet roll, involved a woman screaming, before being chased by some ghost, which emerged from behind a door. If you want to watch the trailer for yourself, it’s on YouTube here, although I will warn you – you’ll probably need a few rolls of Cushelle after watching it.

While in the shower, 11pm at night, on my own in the house, I couldn’t help but look across the landing at the three open bedroom doors, and wonder, what would happen if the ghost from the trailer appeared in my own house. It was a nasty experience!

After my blog the other day, where I got freaked out in Frankie and Benny’s, you may think I am a bit of a ‘scaredy cat, scaredy cat, sitting on the door mat’. You would be right to think that.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
