    The body of this is the length of my entire little finger. The bars in the cream fabric of my curtains are an inch long. This spider is bigger than any I can find record of in the UK. I've uploaded it to an identification site and will update with the news. I am so freaked out! The only spider similar in size I can find is a Wolf Spider or Hobo Spider. All the others look similar but are much smaller. I wont sleep tonight now!

    We've had ones a bit like that before, I think it's just a house spider.

    I have avoided this post through fear! I actually wouldn't kill it, just cry until Simon caught it and put it outside. Daddy long legs and little spiders are fine but big ones with thicker legs urghhhhhhhhhh!

    I don't like them either! Neither does Chris, in fact I think Chris is worse in some respects!

    I wrote on here as we had a spider in our bathroom this morning, not massive, but very fast moving. I was brushing my teeth so asked Chris to come in a minute, I wanted him to get something, he asked what, I said a spider, and he came in and looked at it, said something I wouldn't write in polite company and walked out!

    I said the cat can have it, so he got our youngest cat, Lilly, brought her in, tried to get her to face the spider, but about 2 weeks ago we gave her a shower to help get rid of fleas we found on her before putting some more treatment on her, so she must have thought she was going in the shower again, so she got scared, jumped off Chris and ran out! Our eldest cat, Gizmo was hiding somewhere so we didn't get her.

    Eventually Chris decided to get the hoover out, and the spider ended up sucked up the hoover!
