So why don't you tell us the correct interpretation? You're avoiding the question (posts 309, 317, 318...I can't be bothered editing the quotes).

Years ago I lived in a very old house, and I used to experience all of those. I was convinced I had ghosts visiting me. I'd light candles, and suddenly I'd feel a chill down my back, and the candles...

Why not, the BBC did? More to the point, can anyone just walk into a job sewing clothes together? I'd have thought some training would be required.
