I believe Whatnow was addressing it to me! May be wrong though!
Sorry folk - it was the end of a long and trying day and I may have come across a little more harshly than I intended - it was meant with a smile...
Please accept my apology for the bad language that is not my usual style - haha!
I am aware that there are many of you out there who get a bit worried about the creepy crawlies over here but, you know, you don't see them half as much as wasps and bees in the UK. The fact that the pics of big ones are posted is precisely because you don't see them that often - and there are folk around who just love baiting those of us who aren't so keen on them too!
As Diane says, the big spiders do tend to stay in one place day to day (often in the middle of walls in very obvious spaces) so are easy to spot and if you can't bear getting close enough to them to pop a glass or cereal bowl over them and remove them outside, then try tapping the wall behind them with the end of a broom handle you can make them move towards and sometimes out through the door/window. I know this isn't going to make you look forward to meeting some of our native wildlife, but please believe me, they aren't the least bit interested in you - you are capable of doing them far more damage than they could ever do to you.
Hope you won't be put off either by the idea of the creepie crawlies, or by my uncharacteristic display of bad temper!

I admit my post was a bit girlie!! Sorry!! But I wouldn't want one in my house x
Daughter found a huge, really fat one on her bedroom wall the other day - I think it must be huntsman breeding season and she was full of eggs! Usually their bodies are a bit flat (so they can squeeze under doors and through the tiniest of gaps.....!!)
I remember at the kids' school dentist one time they had just had a massive huntsman hatch out and the whole ceiling was covered with tiny baby huntsman - glad it wasn't me that had to lie back in the chair and open my mouth.....
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
best excuse to make the kids and hubby pick their clothes off the floor!! White tips love a bit of clothing dumped on the floor to hide in...
It's a lot safer in New Zealand :)
