"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

More spiders

Tales of my bravery when faced with a spider in the bathroom the other day seem to have spread far and wide. The sequel to the tale is that yesterday there were 2 more, also in the bathroom but this time I despatched them to that great cobweb in the sky! Well, you get fed up of being brave after a while. The novelty wears off :)
I was also on the laptop yesterday evening with 2 moths and a daddy long legs flying round my head (the back door was open) so I'm not all bad. I did let them survive!
Last week, a young Australian was in the shop regaling us with stories of his encounters with spiders back home. He happily reminisced about huge specimens falling from the ceiling onto his face while in bed! Bit of a passion killer really......

    Geez, Jenny, you are a regular Cinderella (but with bugs). You should get them to help with the sewing!
