Morning glory...

This is the first thing I saw when I woke up this morning. Well truthfully it's the second thing. The first thing I see when I open my eyes is the off button for the alarm, obviously. But anyway the second thing I see when I open my eyes is this: A 5cm (that's TWO inches people) wide spider, and we know how I feel about spiders.  Happy flippin' Australia day. Hooray you live in a country with ludicrously terrifying insects. Hooray you live in a country where it's too hot to sleep at night. Hooflippinray.
I'm joking of course. Australia is obviously wonderful. For all the obvious reasons.
Anyway, it was easier to get out of bed than usual with this lurking over me... and despite my initial feelings I decided I would get dressed to go to work, rather than just avoiding the bedroom completely and going in my pajamas. Quite brave of me really. Of course the dillemma is... what to do if he's still there when I get back or even worse what to do if he's not there - if he's not there then where the hell is he!


  1. eeeeeeeeeeekkkkkk!!!! oh man i would have freaked!! i would have had to have removed / killed it for peace of mind. hope it's gone now!

  2. yikes!! I am not scared of spiders but my husband would not be able to sleep until I killed it

  3. ARGHHHHH!! That's a horrible sight to see upon waking ... he's huge!!! I can handle most things, but spiders are definitely one thing that are not friends of mine.

    I hope he leaves you in peace and just retreats back outside.

  4. Oh sweet Jesus, if I had seen that upon waking I would have been hospitalised. The whole time I was in Australia I was on spider watch.

  5. Oh my! I could never ever cope with that! You poor thing!!
