As it's almost Halloween, I thought I'd share a scary story with you. It's not really a Halloween story, but it is spooky nonetheless!
I was with some friends from the BBC and we were driving home from a night out in Evesham. We were driving through the dark lanes and started talking about ghost stories and really giving each other the creeps.
Then someone mentioned how the area we were driving through was known for having lots of ley lines and how these lines can attract very good and also very bad energy. By this point we were all so spooked and had pretty much freaked each other out, when out of the blue a huge bird (probably an owl) came flying straight at the windscreen.
John, who was driving, slammed on the brakes. Joan and Marie were screaming at the top of their lungs and I remember just being stunned into silence, I was so afraid.
The car stalled and it took several attempts to get it going again. It must have only been seconds but it felt like hours, and we were all shivering, shaking and praying under our breath.
The rest of the journey passed in complete silence and we've never really spoken about the incident. Looking back it was such a co-incidence, but very scary all the same.
I haven't got any plans for Halloween, but I'd love to try some pumpkin pie. Does anyone have a good recipe I could try out?
