I took my gumboots off last night and out plopped a big fat black spider. It stuck to my sock. ARGH. I jumped around like a big girl going "eek eek eek eek eek eek eek!".

The gumboots usually get shaken before putting them on because cockroaches love our laundry (where I keep the gumboots). Typical - the one time I forget, something is in there!

Things about gardening I find hard to handle: cockroaches, earwings, milli/centipedes, and SPIDERS. Oh, and picking up a clump of dirt, only to realise that in fact it's cat poo and has just squashed in my hand. Blurgh.

Ugh yes, earwigs and centipedes are the worst - I think they probably do beat spiders. *shudder* C just discovered a centipede crawling across the carpet... it must have come out of the wood. Ugh!

omg, hate milli/centipedes, earwigs and anything with way too many legs. Don't usually mind spiders unless they surprise me like little Miss Muffet :P
