One visitor i do NOT like.

I do not like spiders on the best of days... I have a fear of them... It's not as bad as it use to be, but its still there.

Whilst in the sandpit with the boys this morning, We flipped the slide for their jungle gym, and my cowboys yells out "arr". He dropped the slide and made dash for cover... (can you tell the fear he has picked up from me about spiders!!)

This is what he found, the dreaded RED BACK! I forgot to put something down next to it, to show its size. It's the biggest I've seen.... I do not like them hanging around our house! It would have been in between half the size of a 5c piece and the full size of it, that's its bum anyway! So the jungle gym is off limits, I've sprayed it, but will get Ben to give it another check and probably another spray just to make sure!

After getting rid of the spider, the boys then spent the next 10 minutes or so hiding out in the laundry.. They understand spiders are not to be messed with. I'm glad that's one of the things they have listened to within all my ranting and raving to them lol

It's almost time for my blue eyes to have his nap, and while he is sleeping , i am going to have a shower... Wash my hair, well wash everywhere and get the itchy feeling away that lingers with me... Yes that is how much i do not like spiders!!!

  2. Yes, i did that when the boys were hiding it out in the laundry! lol!!

  3. I am right there with ya' when it comes to spiders. I swear they run at me! lol Is the Red Back poisonous like our Black Widows are? Here at the house we get spiders some pretty big ones! Thank goodness for the chickens who eat all the bugs!!
