So a spider was found in my aunt’s garden and I wanted to know what type it was as it was much bigger than any I’d seen before. I put the picture into a craft group, which is known for allowing non craft related posts as long as they’re not offensive or networking in any way. My post got deleted, but it definitely wasn’t put there to offend anyone and for some reason I don’t think it’s something that would get me any sales. When I confronted about my post being deleted I got the reply that there are many people with phobias of spiders, well guess what? me too! but it’s still not exactly offensive. If phobias are the case then the group should be shut down, because at the end of the day there are so many phobias in this world that there is nothing you can post – I make things out of paper and I know that there are people with phobias of paper, especially the feel of it, so I guess that my business should be shut down! Ridiculous.
I’m sure spiders must know that I’m terrified of them, because they seem to think that my house is ideal for them. I thought my luck was bad last night, but after seeing this one outside of my house, right next to my door as you can see, I don’t plan on leaving my house for a very long time!
I’m not having much luck tonight. As I was going to bed, I saw a spider on my bedroom ceiling. I watched it to see where it went and it crawled above my bed. It started walking down the wall at the other side, by where my pillows are and I knew it had to go. I went to the bathroom, got toilet paper and bravely tried to grab it off of the wall, but I dropped it and it went either behind my bed or on my bed, so no chance I was sleeping there!
I grabbed my quilt, laptop, phone and a book that I’m currently reading and made my way downstairs to the frontroom. I sat on the black rug and began typing away to one of my email pals. As I was typing I saw a spider right next to my knee! I jumped and ran and once again got some toilet paper. I got this spider though! Much bigger than the one upstairs.
I am now sat on a dining chair in the middle of my front room, with my legs crossed on it. I am checking the whole room for spiders constantly and I don’t think that I’ll be getting any sleep tonight!
So it’s pretty much half 2 in the morning and I have had the worst night possible so far. Mid-pee in the bathroom I saw a spider on the bathtub and I thought ‘you know what? I hate spiders, but it’s in the bathroom so I’ll be fine.’ I went to bed, watched Underworld, which finished at about midnight and then I decided it was time to go to sleep. I had a really bad feeling and felt ill, so I lay tossing and turning until half one, when I decided to turn the lamp on to see if that would help me to fall asleep. I then continued trying to sleep and gave up with this around quarter of an hour later, when I got annoyed with lying around and my head thinking all of these bad thoughts. I text a few of my friends to see if they were awake to find out they were not and this was when I finally gave up and sat up in bed and looked at the wall in front of me…
A house spider was running across my wall.
It was not the spider from the bathroom, it was a different one and much bigger too. I can handle spiders that are far away and nowhere near my bedroom.. but in my bedroom? What if it walks across my face when I’m sleep or something.
I picked my diary up, my pen, my quilt, phone and laptop and made my way downstairs, which is where I’ve been sat ever since. I have a feeling that this is how the rest of my night will be, as now that I have seen two spiders in my house, God knows how many more are here and therefore my mind has turned to spider alert.
