The Battersea Poltergeist – And Other Podcasts

Want something SPOOKY to get your teeth into for Halloween? Then may I suggest the Battersea Poltergeist?

I have spent the past week freaking myself out listening to this podcast at night…in bed…in the dark. Literally shitting myself! Lol. It is really creepy – well I found it creepy. The story centres around a house on number 63 Wycliffe Road, Clapham, home of the Hitchings family. It’s the winter of 1956. Strange things are happening and they seem to centre on 15 year old Shirley, daughter of Wally and Kitty Hitchings. Are the family being haunted by a poltergeist? You can listen HERE

Another podcast I listened to before that was the sad and harrowing story of missing 6 year old Mary Boyle. She disappeared when walking back to her grandparents house in Donegal in 1977. She has never been found. Over the past 44 years suspicion and accusations abound, leading to family relationship breakdowns. The podcast is called No Body Recovered. And you can listen to it by clicking the link HERE

The latest one I have started just last night is called Limelight: The House That Vanished. It’s the story of Neville Presho and his family. After starting a new life in New Zealand, Neville and his wife Fiona decide to return to Ireland with their young family to the remote island of Tory, located nine miles of the north coast of Ireland, off the coast of Donegal. When he moved to New Zealand, Neville left a house on the island, but when he returns to the island to live there with his family, his house is gone! Where did it go? How does a whole house just disappear without anyone on the island seemingly noticing or caring? The link to this podcast is HERE

A Halloween Grant

Well, I have just secured tickets to see John Grant on my birthday, in Bath. OMG! Just too bloody excited! If you are interested in seeing John yourself, there are tickets on pre-sale now, and on general sale on Friday, April 27th. These will go like hot cakes! Most tickets are at the incredibly affordable price of £25.00 (plus £2.50 booking free), with the exception of the London, Brixton tickets at £32 (still very affordable!). I would love to go to at least one more gig, either Brighton or London, but I won’t push my luck. To see him on my birthday is all I could wish for.

Halloween Arty Girl…

Being a Halloween baby, I have been slightly drawn to darker things pretty much my whole life. So, when I saw this little mini canvas and easel yesterday at the art shop, I HAD to get it. And obviously it screamed to have something Halloween themed on it…so I decided on a redback spider. 🙂 And of course, Oz spiders scare the crap out of me! Especially ones as venomous as these!
