To think that a classic ghost story, with classic ingredients, DOES NOT INCLUDE A TOWER!

Towers with secret doors are FOR FAIRYTALES.

Not ghost stories.

FGS.

<head spin>

You biatch.

<vomits on liney's newly painted ceiling>

Hah!!

We didnt mention the locked door.

There's always a locked door that must not be opened.

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 15:37:41

... but is found opened on its own in the morning ...

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 16:18:41

And a faint remaining scent of a woman's perfume... although no woman has lived in the house since the owner's wife died mysteriously many years ago.

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 16:45:44

Salmo, you know you said you were going to vomit on my ceiling? Well either you did, or the stain's come back through on its own after 9 coats of paint.

<goes to investigate clutching Bible>

Ah, well now, maybe it's like the bloodstain on the floor at Holyrood Palace...

Poor David Rizzio (secretary to Mary Queen of Scots) stabbed to death.

The stain has been washed, and washed but it won't go away... shock

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 18:24:09

OK, well I've added another two coats of matt and that's it.

I've got a creepy staircase skirting board to pollyfiller - there's a crack running up it like a tear in the fabric of space and time. <disappears gradually>

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 18:29:18

Stay away from The Crack Liney!!

<hums twilight zone theme>

It sucked me in, Salmo, to a strange universe where my teenage DD came out of her room and sat at the top of the stairs chatting to me nicely.

Loving that SP wrote 'what's her name with the long hair and lives in a tower ' and the immediate post after by LineRunner was 'Edgar Allen Po (e) ' grin

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 19:21:26

God yes, it was a pissed joke about 'The Po' that went a bit strangely wrong.

Jestrin Sun 16-Jun-13 19:23:29

grin

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 19:32:03

OMG Liney shock

A parallel world...

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 19:43:32

I am now imagining a parallel universe written by Edgar Allen Po where there are a lot of pursed lips.

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 19:56:25

And sidelong glances.

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 20:20:08

And tutting.

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 20:26:10

And bosom- hoiking a la Les Dawson.

What bout those freaky china doll things?

And I wonder if mumsnet towers is haunted?

usualsuspect Sun 16-Jun-13 20:33:30

And feeling sorry for our children.

LineRunner Sun 16-Jun-13 22:20:52

My children feel sorry for my children tbh.

Dolls are spooky - especially collections of old dolls with their horrible little teeth.
