Spencer the Spider


I’m not usually a fan of spiders at all, but I was out cleaning the shed today and bumped into this little fella. I’ve got to admit, he doesn’t look as scary as some spiders that I’ve seen (well, maybe those fangs….)820SpiderHe’s been very busy building some rather carefully constructed webs ready for his house warming party later. The guests have started to arrive already.

First there were two.820Spider3Then there were three.820Spider1 Next thing you know, four of these little monsters are tucked up together getting ready for a big night in. The Bluebottle kebabs and aphid salad are ready to serve and everyone is buzzing with anticipation. (Or is that just the kebabs I can hear?)820Spider4 With eight legs apiece to shake their (rather generously sized) booties with, they really are quite the party animals. Spencer can even play the fiddle and still have six legs left to dance a jig! It’s going to be one helluva party in my shed tonight.

I was invited and I thought I might try to be brave and go along – but then this big Black Widow arrived and suddenly I’m thinking… I’ll take a rain check on that. I know her tricks. BlackSpider She’s got a habit of playing dead and then biting your ankle when you’re not looking! Not my idea of fun!!820DSCN4302I think I’ll just leave them to it. I know the famous saying ‘If you want to live and thrive, let a spider run alive’ but I think it’s going to be me doing all the running every time I bump into this lot together.SpiderParty There’s just way too many eyes and legs gathered together in one space. I’d love to try to get over my arachnaphobia but I think I’ll have to take it one spider at a time.

  4. I’m definitely not a fan of spiders, but your ones have got me in the mood to have a go and, with a daughter who loves the things, I know who to make it for 🙂

    • You should certainly encourage your daughter’s love of spiders so she can put them out for you when they get stuck in the bath! All three of my boys are scared of them so we all run around screaming and then refuse to go into the room where it was spotted until my husband comes home from work to rescue us!

      • When she lived at home, she was always my hero in the ‘rescue me from that spider, please’ department – unfortunately, she now lives in Bristol, and I’m in West Wales – quite a way to come to rescue me now! Lol
        Hubby does so, with reluctance, as he’d rather have the spiders, than the flies! 🙂

      • Oh I see! That would be a bit of a big ask in that case!

  5. Love those spiders, they are kind of cute.
