I am not sure where this story belongs as it is about seeing the ghost or apparition of a living person as opposed to a deceased person.

In early January 2008, I was in my bedroom getting ready for bed. My 14 year old son was in the room with me looking for something in the laundry basket. I turned my head as I was aware of something next to me by the door. My eldest son was standing in the doorway staring at me. I called out his name, he cocked his head to one side and then vanished.

My younger son, on hearing me call out his brothers name looked round. "There was no one there mum" He said at the time I spoke he was looking in the mirror and saw no reflection so looked up.

I thought about it very hard, and realised that although he was the image of my son he had blonder hair and was wearing a white top whereas my 'real' son was in his bedroom in a yellow top with a new darker hair style.

My younger son then said to me..."Mum you dont think its that same man you saw squatting by your bed changed his shape so you wont be scare of him do you"

My son was referring to a night about 2 years ago where I woke to find a man in a footmans type of uniform leering at me very close to my face. I opened my eyes wider and he came in closer to I screamed out loud. My boyfriend checked throughout the house for a burgular that night. No one was found.

I now sleep with the light on...
