Spider update

redback update

Here’s an update for everyone breathlessly waiting to see how my mailbox spider is doing. She’s still hanging out, threatening the postie and generally causing trouble. You know how those teenage spiders are. Her colouring is much darker and the red stripe is much more prominent. Although she’s not completely black, she’s definitely recognisable as a redback.

And so far, we’ve managed to get the mail out on a regular basis without incident.

  1. She’s waiting for you to get nice and fat and complacent, then bang!

  2. I’m sorry, why haven’t we killed it yet? Am I missing something 8|

  3. I can’t marvel at the beauty of a living creature and then calmly stomp its life out. I just don’t have it in me.

    She’s not hurting anyone… and if she gets to be a problem, Dave will move her.

  4. good on you Kay – Matt grow up πŸ˜›

  5. Man you’re far more tolerant than me. That sucker would have got himself perished on day one.

    Of course Leah being a huge arachnophobe might have a lot to do with that πŸ˜‰

  6. I don’t “like” spiders, but it’s a case of being fascinated and repulsed at the same time. And our spider – it’s a she, by the way – has history now. And nearly her own blog, lol.
