just popped outside for a cigarette and a spider managed to get between my bare footed little toe and next toe up! blerrr. god damned irresponsible spider owners.

I'm sorry. I believe it may have re-homed itself from my apple tree prunings today.

i agree, whoever owned the monster spider that crawled into bed with me on wednesday can come and retrieve the remnants from my bathroom bin.

Have convinced myself it has crawled up my pj pants now!!! Ooh the horror. Will be posting leaflets through all the houses in the street tomorrow outlining the importance of responsible spidering. (new word - spidering).

Look, just because my house is a bit unkempt does not mean I have taken on ownership of the spiders who live here.

I once had a nasty shock when I moved the piano, and saw in the dust the most hideous six inch long clawed beast nestling in the dust.

It turned out to be a child's plastic lobster.

MillyR - FGS you can't even control a plastic lobster. tut tut. grin

The thing is, you can't train spiders like you can dogs. You can put down litter trays all you like, but the fact is, they just choose to run around the neighbours' geranium beds, and there's nothing you can do about it.

On the plus side, they're quite independent and catch their own food.

take you need to pop into Vals smoking shed..she has lights and everything grin

I have been counting the spiders in my garden. They are all accounted for. That's a relief.

TakeMeDrunkImHome Fri 03-Jun-11 23:30:32

and i am just hearing about said smoking shed NOW! I have already booked the therapy to get over being toe poked by a random untrained spider!

Take Note People - LINERUNNER is a responsible spiderator.

Booyhoo - shock - I would quite literally have fainted.
A spider in the bed!!!
I was bad enough the other day when a big hairy sod was slumbering on the cornice. I had to keep a vigilant eye on it in case it ran away and hid shock

TakeMeDrunkImHome Fri 03-Jun-11 23:31:40

have had a nice giggle at spiders having litter trays!!

MillyR Fri 03-Jun-11 23:32:50

We once found a toad in the house. It was in a bucket of coal.

Salmotrutta Fri 03-Jun-11 23:32:51

Yeah but, no but, yeah but..... Linerunner applies wart remedy irresponsibly (apparently). grin

LineRunner Fri 03-Jun-11 23:32:57

I'm missing a very small slug, though. Answers to the name of Ryan.

TakeMeDrunkImHome Fri 03-Jun-11 23:33:53

Um....a slug was trodden on last night (in socks <boak> he didnt suffer..)

Salmotrutta Fri 03-Jun-11 23:34:10

I have Ryan - he's nestling on my porch door. I gave him lettuce.

TakeMeDrunkImHome Fri 03-Jun-11 23:34:24

There was a posse of other slugs slowly approaching wearing tin hats, I believe he had lost 3 brothers...

LineRunner Fri 03-Jun-11 23:34:58

Salmotrutta I swear the wart freezer did not involve children and animals. Or insects or arachnids.

Salmotrutta Fri 03-Jun-11 23:35:49

4 brothers surely............

BooyHoo Fri 03-Jun-11 23:35:56

fifi25 Fri 03-Jun-11 23:36:40

Salmotrutta Fri 03-Jun-11 23:36:58
