Hello there, Stephen here, at the end of a long and strange week. It’s been very different having someone in the house with me all this week, strange but oddly not nearly as disconcerting as I thought it would be.
Of course, Gary would say that the shock to my system has been having to do work but I was expecting to find the change in the house quite difficult after spending so much time here on my own. But instead its been something of a relief and its certainly been great having my friend Jo here with me to work with.
It has been a trying week, though, having to try and get all our electronic systems up and running ready for next week, and I think that’s the change that I’m dreading most – when the TV cameras arrive and I’m rather afraid we may start turning into a circus rather than a serious investigation.
While all the work we’re doing this week is, I think, extremely worthwhile – and I’m really looking forward to be able to include all of you in our EMF survey of the house – I’m afraid that once the TV broadcasts start we’re going to start getting a lot more focussed on providing ‘good television’ whatever that is, rather than what we should be doing.
But then I suppose it’ll be my job, with Jo’s and I hope, your help, to make sure we concentrate on the important matters.
And, of course, as tempting as it might be to spend the next fortnight with just the two of us in the house, monitoring and investigation, I have to admit that none of this project would have been possible without the TV show and it may just be that the more people we have the in house, the more eyes and attention we have on the project, the more we may see.
After all, what is a haunted house without people to be haunted?
Anyway, I suspect that I’m just off-kilter because I haven’t been sleeping very well, since I stopped sleeping in the attic and moved back into the main rooms of the house (we’re going to try and restrict our living quarters to the newer areas of the house, to leave the older parts untouched as much as possible).
Certainly I’ve got more material for my dream diary – oddly, looking back, my recent dreams are very similar to those I had when I first arrived in the house, dreams of running around the house trying to find people, particularly Jo, although now they’re much more like nightmares rather than normal dreams. An indication, I can only assume, of some nervousness at how the next week is going to pan out.
Well, whatever happens, I hope you’ll be tuning in.
