I am in a deep state of shock. While spending a Saturday evening in my flat, happily playing Fifa 09 and chatting to Claire on MSN, one of the biggest spiders of all time casually walked from under my media centre, and into the room.

I would be lying if I said I didn’t jump up and run off screaming. The spider was massive – the size you would expect to find in the jungle! This is Somerset, though, not the Amazon! You shouldn’t be getting beasts this size in England!

Suffering from arachnophobia, I always have a tin of spider-killer to hand. I don’t like using it because of the chemicals it contains, but due to fear, I have absolutely no choice but to. Standing well, well back from the ferocious creature, I sprayed it. The spider then ran off behind by sofa – great! The only thing worse than having a spider in front of you, is having one in your house, but not knowing where it is!

It wasn’t long before the beast of Bath ran out from the sofa, looking for revenge. I was ready for it and unleashed half a can of spider killer onto it. This seemed to work and I was able to trap it under a pint glass.

It is now dead, but I am feeling far from safe. God knows how many others have found their way into my flat…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
