Getting dressed for work this morning, took out t-shirt and put it on. Sae and felt something odd on my arm and did the instinctive shaking and brushing off. It was a rather large orb weaver spider. Not a good start for an arachnophobe. Fortunately, orb weavers though large and dark coloured are not of the aggressive nor scuttling variety. It took refuge on a nearby tissue and S was able to safely remove it to outdoors. Thank heavens for spider wranglers. :)

we do get a lot of orb weavers in our garden (we get a lot of insects as we don't use poisons) and occasionally they decide to spin webs out to the clothesline. Usually, I know that this is happening and do check the clothes as I take them off the line. I hadn't seen any webs on it for a while, so I didn't check. That'll teach me!
