Now this is a spooky story, even if I do say so myself. I went out of my way to write down things I knew make my spine tingle and Soph called it really creepy. Rob also said it scared him when he read it, which at the time I counted as a win.
The universe decided to play a prank on me, however. Rob was delayed getting home from work last night because of an accident on the motorway. I thought nothing of it when he initially rang, until I heard this almighty bang as I was watching TV and then an accompanying rumble. When I looked out the window a completely black cloud was coming in and with it came thunder, lightning and rain. 'I can deal with this' I told myself, but you know what was coming next, don't you ... yep the power went off.
So there I was all by myself, in the dark, having been writing and creating a spooky front cover for my new ghost story all day. I ended up sitting in the kitchen with a torch and refusing to let the cat leave my side. Pathetic in the light of day, but I couldn't help myself. :)
