If you do what would you say is a sign any angels are near?

No, me neither.

Nah. So can't answer second part of the question. Which is quite annoying as I am on a Gransnetting roll.

Yes , signs? Difficult, the feather but many other signs too, one needs to open be open to them

dramatictessa Mon 30-May-16 19:17:26

No. Which is a good thing, as I walk past a dovecote in my way into town most days (all those white feathers!)

dramatictessa Mon 30-May-16 19:18:23

*on my way, not in my way.

No. I believe in the tooth fairy though. The sign that she was near is that one of my teeth would start to loosen.

I prefer ' In my way!'

dramatictessa Mon 30-May-16 19:47:28

It is in my way if I'd had too much Prosecco!

some people are also mcuh more 'open' to ghosts. Our old Elizabethan house has hosted many very historical events- and many French soldiers died here in 1871 when they gave themselves up after the last battle of the Napolonic wars against Prussia (under Napoleon III, not Bonaparte)- and some say it's haunted. Been here 7 years and never come across any. But if I do, I'm sure they would be happy ghosts, as after months and months of suffering, they were at last hosted with great care, warm and fed at last. They certainly not scare me.

No but I believe in fairies as in midsummer.

Alima Mon 30-May-16 21:15:54

No, not unless I am watching Wonderful Life. Once had a teacher, Mrs Beresford, who kept going on about fairies. Apart from that she seemed quite normal.

granjura Mon 30-May-16 21:17:08

I believe in Green Fairies - very local to me ;)

Alima Mon 30-May-16 21:35:44

You mean like magic mushrooms granjura?

Greenfinch Mon 30-May-16 21:44:08

A big question because it depends on what you mean by angels.The word means messenger and anyone can be an angel.A timely word that speaks to you at a particular time could be an example. So yes I believe in human angels but not the supernatural kind. I would love to though.

Well I say my "Angel Prayer " every morning and sometimes ask them to liase with DDs

GandTea Mon 30-May-16 21:58:01

In the first world war at the battle of Mons there is a story about angels saving the troops.
