Well, it had to happen I suppose. I've just gone out to get the post from the box and it was the usual assortment of catalogues that have been there for days. I carried them in and sat down to have a look at what's on special.... and the biggest huntsman IN THE WORLD fell out onto the table in front of me. I don't think you can underestimate just how loud and girly my scream was, certainly the dog won't forget today in a hurry!!! I phoned Richie (why????) but he wouldn't come home and sort it out so I have Mortein'd it and hit it with a shoe 47 times. I think it's dead.
There's no point to this story except to warn you poor innocent people back in the UK that Australia is a VERY SCARY PLACE WITH VERY SCARY THINGS!!!!!
