In the UK, yakking on a Sunday morning used to mean something entirely different

Found a visitor this morning, sheltering from this week's endless summer rain.
Shuffled her outside, where she waits!

Thought she was bigger than my hand when I saw her  -  maybe not quite!

I haven't seen a huntsman for years.

I've only seen one since I've been in Melbourne.  Woke up in the early hours to see it on the ceiling directly above my bed.

We saw more in Melbourne in a unit than in Brisbane. Used to see redbacks and white tails all the time as well.

Wife was bitten by something couple of months after we arrived in Aus when hanging out the washing
Being in the medical profession, she chose to ignore her whole leg turning pink for a few days. Spent Melbourne cup day in ED and an overnight stay on a drip.

Managed to get herself a necrotic ulcer on her toe. Turned out that was probably due to being bitten by a white tail spider.

My daughter was also bitten by a white tail spider when bringing in the washing.

10 years or so ago they were common but i thi9nk drought or something killed the majority off. Very rare to see one in the house nowadays.

As i said years since i had one in the house.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
