For the second time today I've been confronted by a gigantic spider. I've just reached my arm out to grab some bog roll and this big ugly f*cker was an inch away on the wall. And I'm in on my own. I'm itching like mad now, having dispatched it with a can of Raid and a cricket bat. My least favourite of all - thick black legs, bulbous body and three inches across. These only used to start appearing in Autumn. Is it the weather?
