Just wanted to make a short entry to tell you all The Mystery of the Vanishing Spider has now been solved!
Again this morning, I found him dangling in my shower - this time he was totally occupied with making his web work (he went up and down to test it, I think - I real 'elevator-spider' *lol*), so I found the time to grab my glass and piece of paper.
I really really don't like spiders, and while this one's body wasn't that big, his legs were huge! *shivers* Anyway, I'm guessing I went through a number of phobic-therapy stages when I managed to get the spider down from the web and onto the floor, under the glass with the paper and then onto the balcony. But I did!
Now I have made a promise to myself not to open the balcony door for a great number of hours, giving the little bugger a chance to find somebody else's balcony to occupy (and sneak into their apartment!!)!
I'll be back tonight with a proper entry!
