Creepy Crawlies!

Last night I got Youngest back from school at 7.30pm as he had been there to see the other Drama exam performances.  I managed to get the binding sewn on to my commission quilt which took me until 9.30pm but I had had enough by then so went to bed.  DH was still at work so Treacle takes advantage and hops on the bed on his side!   I was quite happy watching a TV programme when one of these shot down the curtains doing an impression of Usain Bolt!!!!!!!

Now fortunately in our country we don’t have anything poisonous but I hate them.  Someone once suggested that I go on one of these courses where you face your fears!  Well there is no way I am going somewhere and have spiders crawling all over me!!!!  Life is far too short!!!!

The horrible thing had gone down behind my reading chair in our room and I was not going to get out of bed and investigate.  The big brave dog was oblivious of it all!!!!!  DH got back for work just after all this and as soon as he got in I shouted for help!!!!!  He wafted the curtains and said he could not see it and it was probably gone.  Needless to say I didn’t believe him and he knew I probably wouldn’t stay in the room if he didn’t find it!!!!!  While he was telling me about his day it ran out from under the chair but he was not quick enough to get it, but he moved the chair and it was again half way up the curtain!!!  It was dispatched!!!

Now I know some of you will be horrified about it being dispatched and we do, where we can, catch them and let them go but this thing was running too fast and DH did not want to loose it again.

I think my fear of spiders started when I lived at home and we had this ornate bottom of the staircase which was just right to throw your scarf round in the winter.  So this one winter’s morning I got my scarf and put it on (it was navy), I walked into the kitchen to say goodbye to Mom, when I felt something on my neck which I brushed off to find one of these monsters on the floor!!!!!  I shrieked and was almost sick and fortunately my Mom’s Airedale, Kelly, pounced on it and killed it!!!!!   Ever since then yuck…………………   I just wish they would stay in the garden and not come in the house!!!! 

This is also one of the reasons why Australia is way down on my list of places to visit as they have far creepy crawlies over there that want to kill you!!!!!!

I hope your Thursday is going well

Hugs, Susie x

    Me too, Susie!!! I have dispatched several on the walls and they just stayed there until they were totally dry and I could bring myself to clean them off!!! I remember killing a black widow on the wall of my oldest’s bedroom – it was huge and made a big splat when I whacked it with a shoe and that mess stayed there until my husband came home and could clean it off. Still gives me shivers!! When I went to Australia I never saw a single spider (don’t remember seeing any bugs at all), but I know they have some the size of dinner plates!!! Thunder rumbling here whilst Tara snoozes under her blanket in her bed.

    I know just how you feel. I was sitting at the computer one evening and saw something move out of the corner of my eye. When I looked it was the biggest spider I have ever seen in my house and moving pretty fast towards me. I was the only one around so had to take care of it but it was creepy.
