As autumn takes hold spiders seem to appear from everywhere. I tell myself I'm not afraid but every so often the buggers take you by surprise, and I do feel genuine fear. This leggy git appeared in my hallway at night while I popped into the kitchen to make a cuppa. He appeared a damn sight bigger than he actually was... but I managed to trap him under a glass and chuck him outside. As a watched him scurry away in blistering silent speed I couldn't help but feel mightily entertained.
