The Devil's Own Handy Work......

I'm sitting on the lounge floor, Sarah’s brushing my hair watching X Factor on the television.   The lights are turned down low and I’m half asleep.  Out the corner of my eye I noticed something move across the carpet and it was fast.

First thought was “No need to panic, I must have just imagined that” but noooo  Bloody Hell!  What was that ???  A spider the size of a small domestic dwelling is leggin it across the room and its coming straight for me.  Aaaarrrggggg !!!  Launches off the floor like a scolded cat, my hearts just missed a beat and I feel like I’ve lost a year of my life.   Sarah’s laughing, thinks it’s really funny.

The spider isn’t really that big if truth be known, but the light coming from the television is hitting it at just the right angle to cast a huge shadow, it seems immense!!  Turning the main light on reveals the Devil’s own arachnid in glorious technicolor ugliness!!  It sits motionless in the light, like it won’t be noticed.  As If!  The only thing that can happen to make things worse now is if it scurries off under the sofa and gets lost.  I pray It’s not going to happen today though!

Several wallops later and calm is restored.  Sarah’s still laughing at my amazing floor to ceiling leap, but I breathe and let out a small giggle too.  I sprawl on the sofa from now on, it’s much safer there.

Spiders, jellyfish and sharks.... oh my.... nope... spiders gotta die... And someone here told me that we EAT some spiders in our sleep!!! GAH.... couldn't sleep for a week after that.

I heard that too. My cat sleeps in the bedroom and she loves to play with them (shortly before eating them....yuk !) so I think we're good. lol

can I borrow your cat?

You can have her in the day....lol

LOL..wimp...."If you want to live and thrive, let a spider run alive"



actually I'm not too fond of them either...Rosa always used to catch them in our house and enjoy harpooning them with her claws before eventually spearing them to death

Hey.....wimp ?? haha yeah you're probably right. I want you to live and thrive so much though, *puts spider through Izzy's letterbox* hee hee :)

the other day i was told by an elderly lady that if you have acorns in the room you will not have any spiders as apparently they do not like the smell of acorns! she swears by it.

Funny you should say that. I heard the same is true with conkers, Thank you.

I understand. Me too! Them and other creepy crawleys.

I hate spiders myself.Someone told me that in reality you are never any farther away than six feet from one.Gives me the creepies.

I'm like you I hate spyders also don't like them in my house not even on the porch alway's want them gone. We had one the other night that was near the door and it was the size of a quarter and had to get that one away real quick before it got in the house. I would have been screeming real loud then.
