A funny post for Flashback Friday, although it felt nearly fatal at the time!
Just a short post to explain my reply to Colin’s comment on my previous offering.
We were sorting out the attic getting ready to move house, and it was one of those really hot and muggy days, so we were stripped down to our underwear. Ok yeah, not a pretty sight, so I’ll move quickly on.
Hubby found a suitcase and tossed it down to me. I could say it was the heat affecting my brain, but the result was being unable to get my breath, massive palpitations preventing me from speech, and such a hike in blood pressure, I honestly thought I was going to have a heart attack and die on the spot.
Inside, was the biggest, hairiest spider I have ever seen in my life.

I was hoping to invite you over to my house sometime, considering that you and I live in the same city. Now I have second thoughts – we should just meet at a coffee shop where there are no spiders. I don’t know CPR.
haha! I’m OK with the little ones now, but anything bigger than a money spider and I’m calling for Hubby to get his glass and coaster!
Some of those toy spiders look very realistic.
I feel my blood running cold just thinking about it.
It was at the time.
I did a version of this today with some flotsam I was certain was a snake! Of course, the time I thought there were bats flying around my head in the dark was……accurate, unfortunately. Thwapping sounds will always send me into a panic now.
I can believe that.
A spider has taken residence in my front door. I can see it in the gap between the door and the door frame when I open the door. It’s not a big hairy one but big enough!
Double glazing on the cheap!
I managed to scoop the spider up and made sure it went outside rather than in.
Spiders are probably as scared as we are when we come face to face!
So I understand, but I’m not getting close enough to ask one!!
That would have led me to go shrieking as far away as possible!!
I couldn’t even do that!!
