I've been a good girl. I have applied for a couple of jobs - even though, what I really want to do is slack about for a couple of weeks.
I thought the gardening would energise me a little. Certainly the large solid looking gray spider that emerged from the ground when I was digging a hole caused some swift movement on my part, but mostly just resulted in me having flashbacks as I was about to go to sleep last night. I think it was a wolf spider (picture at bottom of page of link) but am not sure - there are so many to chose from.
Bloody hate spiders.
Technically I appreciate them and their role in the ecosystem, but I just don't want them near me. It wouldn't die either. I kept missing with the hoe and when I did think I'd hit it, it seemed to have no effect. I think it is still out there. Doesn't make me want to do any more gardening.
If only it hadn't crawled towards me. I could have coped if it'd gone the other direction. I have to go now - I have the shudders again just thinking about it.
My Monday after the encounter with the spider may have slightly resembled this ExplodingDog Cartoon.
