    Some people seem to have problems with our eight-legged friends - they might like to make a note to avoid Junction 6 on the M3, where this fair-sized one seems to have caused the north-bound traffic flow to cease..

    Remember the one I had trouble with last week? With evil delight, my hubby told me about the one he saw running around our room last night after i'd gone to sleep :( At least he didn't wake me to show me this time.

    There was a spider on the chip & pin machine at Asda Petrol Station on Friday night. Had to put my pin number in really carefully to avoid having a squashed spider stuck to the end of my finger . Luckily didn't need to press the number where one of his legs was resting :D

    Spiders are a delicacy in my house!

    Small child was up in the middle of the night after a huge one decided it wanted to share her pillow...

    Now, I was saving this job for Friday being as its going to rain- but I have her room & vast amount of toy boxes to tidy....plenty of hiding spaces for more giant spiders.....I really don't want to do it :( Volunteers please!
