Last week, I was caused more than my fair share of “mild peril”. Had the last week of my life been dramatised onto DVD, it would probably be given a 15 certificate for disturbing and frightening scenes. Yes… spiders really can be that scary.

Not one, but two invaded my flat last week. The first was waiting for me on the carpet as I walked in the door after football. It was rather late, so perhaps the spider thought it was my wife and was complaining about the time I had come home after football. Whatever. I had to deal with it. I chickened out of using my spider catcher and called upon the bug spray.

The next morning, “mild peril” turned to “shit your pants scary”. While dressing for work, I picked up a pair of trousers from the floor. A black ball fell to the carpet with a thud (no, I’m joking). Puzzled as to what this dark object could be, I studied it closely, only to jump back in fear when the black ball sprouted eight legs. Cue more bug spray and a glass to trap the beast for the day, while I went off to work.

Those people who say spiders are more scared of you than you are of them are clueless idiots.

  • 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.
