I realise we are lucky in the UK not to have poisonous spiders (so far as I know anyway), but my golly there's been some huge ones finding their way into my home in the last week or so . Fortunately I'm not usually freaked by them, but at the weekend there was a massive one - with a big fat body and really long legs - which my son's brave girlfriend caught under a glass and gave it a chance to live by putting it outside. Yesterday I discovered it was back - either that or it was his twin brother come in to see what had happened to him - I regret I was not so generous and disposed of him permanently.
Yes we have had some whoppers Jax, they scare me when they suddenly gallop into the sitting room, I usually do the glass disposal method too, but the ones I really can't bear are the spindly leg spiders, the ones with really skinny long legs and tiny bodies, if I didn't dispose of them completely our house would be overrun with the blasted things, I seem to find them on a daily basis this time of year, I know their preferred hanging/hiding places
Jazzy, that was exactly the type that freaked me out this morning (where is the eye popping out smilie?) I came down stairs, made a coffee, fed the monsters and went to the glass fronted bathroom cabinet. As I looked up before sliding the door, there on the top of my head was a huge spider !!!!! . I squealed like a banchee, shook my head and rubbed the spider off onto the floor. It ran behind the toilet.
I am shuddering just writing this and kept wondering how long had it been there ?
Cherry, I started to watch and found myself going goose bumpy and moving backwards from the screen, ooh no, had to switch off
Sunny, I would have screamed too, oh how awful , this has reminded me of an incident a few years back, OH had bought me a cup of tea in bed, and I was just relaxing, thinking about the day ahead, and because I wear specs, everything is a bit blurred, so I saw something dark and fast moving out of the corner of my left eye, and thought I hope that wasn't a spider, and sure enough, there was whopper spindly, done a bungee jump from the ceiling and landed right there next to me, boy did I move like greased lightening, and spindly was no more.
