Either I am going more crazy then what I already am or Gissi is playing tricks or something is going on in this Flat Ok in the past I have had a Touchlamp switch itself on, I have had one Light flicker on and of, my Printer turns itself on and of, now this I have a Micro Cloth that is for my Laptop as I am a fussy Person, every time I come of the Laptop it gets cleaned as I can not stand the Finger Prints on it lol Well last Night I ran all the Scans, closed down the Laptop and then looked for my Cloth Now I mean I searched behind the Settee behind the Cushions, under the Settee, just every where I could not find it, so I got myself another Cloth as I was to tired to worry about it then This morning still no sign of it, At 11am I took Gissi out, then fed him, went to the Shop, stripped the Bed and put clean Sheets on I then came to sit down and go on my Laptop, well behold me there on top of one of the Cushions was my Cloth, now I know it was NOT there as I had picked up the Cushions to look under them last Night and this morning I had to fluff them up after Gissi throwing them about so I know that it was not there or do I ? Has this ever happened to you?

Oh I have had strange things happen that go on without reason. Computers that turn on by themselves, lights that go on, lost things that suddenly appear from out of nowhere. I just sigh and don't try to find an explanation for it. If I tried, I would drive myself batty. Things happen as does life. Big huggers to you and Gissi!

Yup. I have gremlins taking stuff all the time. I yell at them to put it back, and they generally do, but I have to turn my back on the spot where the thing turns up. Annoying, isn't it?

You have to be firm with them. And try not to pack them and cart them to the new place.

How funny! It could be one or the other... obviously, Gissi wouldn't turn lights on and off, nor your printer. I know your flat and there is definitely spirit there. They're friendly spirit and they're more often than not, in the kitchen area; but, when they're there, there's a filmy mist between your living room and the kitchen, and it has a cool feeling, if not cold. As far as you're micro cloth is concerned, I'm thinking it could have been Gissi, but I'm not altogether sure about that, because you know, by now, where his hiding places are, unless he's found somewhere new to hide it. That leaves two options... did you feel a change of temperature in the living room that night? Did you feel it had turned a bit cold, so you would close down your laptop and go to bed? If so... I think it's playful spirit. If not, it still could be playful spirit, but I think more likely, it's the li'l man! lolol. Watch him... spy on what he does when you leave the room! Personally, I don't think it's him unless he buried it somewhere in his bed under the bed, but not having been there, I'm not sure. Hope you get to the bottom of it. :)

Ok... we spoke about this on the phone yesterday and I really feel as I told you, that this particular spirit... maybe the only spirit, but I felt there's two or three... wanted you to know she was there. Being a neat person, she gave you a clue as to who she was by folding the cloth neatly and putting it where it was instantly noticeable. Now that I've told you this, you'll probably notice other things. It would be interesting to know whether the spirit moves house with you; or this one, at least. It explains some things to me too... despite what you say, that room DOES go cold at times, and your kitchen, for whatever reason you say, is cold, even in the summer. Then, look at the things that have happened to me when I've visited... especially the June when you went into hospital... think about it. They were signs to me in my own life, but the place is connected. That was a time of transition for me because when I visited Ellie, immediately prior to that, I had similar occurrences and visions, and the Essex ones were just a continuation, leading up to Midsummer's Eve, and Solstice. After the Full Moon on Midsummer's Eve, nothing... they all stopped for a while, at least. I've felt spirit on more than one occasion in your home, and so have others... no names mentioned but I'm sure you'll know who I mean... and how many times did you suddenly shiver on my first visit, and say "Aww, it's really cold in here."? Remember the night when your two friends dropped in, and what happened with me? You said it that night. I have my thoughts about that too, and you know what happened at home here, at the same time; all those miles apart. Gissi is aware too. I've seen him lying by your bedroom door, when he suddenly wakes and stares into the kitchen. I know this won't frighten you because we've discussed it before, and I don't feel any danger for you. They're friendly spirit, and this one, I'm convinced is watching over you, but she wants you to know she's doing so; hence the flashing of lights, the neatly folded cloth returning after disappearing, etc. You'll be fine my friend... why don't you ask if it's her, and ask her to give you a sign if it is. She's sure to do that if she's trying to let you know she's there.

Also... added to all that, there is a filmy mist appears in your kitchen when the spirit is present. It's not always there, but it is quite often. Remember too, the holder that kept coming off the wall in my hands and the curtain? Yeah... she was giving me a hard time, too! ha ha ha

is this your old place or the new one. If it's the old one maybe it doesn't want you to leave. If it's the new one you need to have a long talk with it, tell it you will love it and want to make it a happy home, I have a feeling that after what you told us about the condition of the flat before you moved in, who ever was there did not encourage good vibes. Good Luck

yes many times and we used to say it was the "little people" or matchbox people. whichever you've heard of. then again, gissi could be doing more magic things then you know. one time in florida, we had a light like that also and a box window fan that would go on and off at will. we used to say it was our ghost Christopher! yes we gave him a name.

I’ve had weird things happen before and I’ve put them down to my old age (LOL) but I’m not so sure if that is the case sometimes! I don’t dismiss the idea of mischievous spirits around the place although I have no clear evidence I do wonder. If it wasn’t Gissi or a friendly ghost it’s a mystery! Hope it didn’t freak you out too much; I’m sure that who ever is responsible is just a prankster and nothing more! Let us know if you have any more incidents like this one; I would be interested to know...

Been there. Whenever I don't need a thing its always in a place where I can see it. But when I badly needed it, it disappears. My Mom said that maybe something is playing with us... But I don't believe her. Its either I just put it in the wrong place, or somebody misplaced it, or it was taken by somebody... Things are getting strange if we think its strange. My Mom has always been superstitious so she's giving me the creeps all the time.

Let's disregard paranormal issues here, haha. Well u know sometimes we're looking for something but thinking of another thing, thus our eyes are not focused on what we're looking for but rather on thing thats occupying our mind. Have u ever had that experience wherein u were looking for something and you cant find it , when all the while its right under your nose? What u had can be another case. (^_^)

Hey gabs! Well, you did say that there have been many unexplained "happenings" in this flat that you're in now! Like the lamps that turn on a off and the other strange things that seem to happen! Maybe there is a spirit in there that is not at rest! I definitely do believe in them! My friends felt that there was something in my apartment for many years and then one of my friends told me how to perform an "exorcism" to get rid of them and it seemed to really work. His Grandmother was into that sort of stuff and taught him all about it. It had something to do with their Puerto Rican Culture! Hopefully when you move maybe the "spirit" will finally be at peace because it will have it's "space" back! Don't worry gabs! I will be praying for you and Gissi! Love, Leslie, Star & Luna

Every day, gabs. I often look for things, shout at Mr Croc for moving them, then find them exactly where I thought they were. It's because our minds are full of more useful stuff, at least that's my excuse. Take care.

Hey Gaby, Maybe you have a ghost who used to be a prankster. If these things continue, try talking to it. See if you can find the history of the home. Although, if you did have a ghost, I would think that Gissi would have a fit. I think dogs and cats as well as young children can see the ghost. Having a ghost in your home can be fun if it isn't too much of a prankster. Good luck Gaby and keep us posted. Big Hug!! Leenie

Touch lamps are notorious for switching themselves on. Electric wires can be cantankerous and "jump" connections. Gissi can be mischievous. Maybe that last one is an understatement. Gissi IS mischievous! I'd be inclined to blame him. On the other hand, I know I have often searched everywhere for a piece of paper and decided it isn't there. Then I sit down to do something else - and there it is, right in front of me. I am not a blonde, but I KNOW it was MY fault. I just didn't see it beforee.
