Last night I was sat in bed reading, as you do. I was perfectly happy until Mr CL came to bed. (That sounds bad doesn't it but read on) He pulled back his side of the duvet to get in bed and exclaimed "OH WOW, LOOK AT HIM!) Yes, you guessed it, I wasn't alone! There was a huge, black, bulbous spider in bed with me! Well, I shot out of there like I was on FIRE!
Mr CL disposed of the interloper and got in bed, then spent ages trying to convince me to come out of the corner. I'd like to say that he fully understood my terror and was nice about it, but he preferred to go down the route of "Get in bed quick! I think there may be more on the floor!" (Evil, evil man!)
I did eventually venture back between the covers, only to spend the next several hours itching and stressing about the intruder. I was tempted to ask Mr CL which direction it had been facing so that I could console myself that it hadn't actually come from MY SIDE! But I didn't, which is probably a good thing.
I'm not sure how I'm going to face going to bed tonight. Fresh sheets? (of course), full body armour? Perhaps. Valium? (If I had some!)
I trust you all slept far more soundly than I did. I hope I haven't made you all itch as well.
But just remember....
Before you get into bed tonight! Check between the sheets! ;)
