All that glitters....
Yesterday, after I had checked for mail (the real stuff that the Postie delivers), I found a leaf stuck to my trousers. I thought nothing of it and put it into the waste paper bin.
Next morning, when I went into the study, the leaf was suspended in mid-air in the middle of the room.
Yes, that's right, it had a spider living inside it.
I put it out in the garden.
I do love the time of year when the leaf-curl spiders are about. I have a salt shaker full of glitter and I go out into the garden and decorate their webs for them.
Looks magical. All sparkly.
But it is gone the next morning. I have visions of the spiders cursing and swearing, running their fingers down each strand of their web to take off the glitter.
Can't really begrudge one setting up home in my study.
