Spider lowers itself down in front of the PC monitor last night - I hold my finger out to catch it & it drops on the keyboard. As I'm only using the mouse to browse the web(!) I leave it to sort itself out. 5 minutes later sharp sensation on elbow & I see it pinned between my elbow & table. Think nothing more than it being the sensation of nearly crushing it & flick it off. No harm done as 5 mins later I find it crawling up my other arm.
Woke up 30 mins ago with my arm throbbing & elbow swollen like a golf ball & 2 distinct red dots where the buggers bit me! Just been googling & surprised how many UK spiders can bite humans. I wonder if nows the time to take up climbing again?
