friday night D and i were in the kitchen when i spied something moving near his foot, i pointed this out and D immediately jumped on to the nearest chair.
it didnt look like the spiders i had seen around the house, so i grabbed a jar, trapped the spider under it and carefully slid a piece of paper under the jar.
when i had him trapped securely in the jar D came over to look "aww, hes cute" says the boy.
i asked what his name was and he was dubbed Spikey.
we kept spikey in the jar saturday, and fed him a few ants that i found on sunday, gave him a few drops of water but by this afternoon Spikey didnt seem too happy.
we relaesed Spike in the bushes outside the house. he ran away immediately, i hope he stays warm because now its snowing.
