    I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

    So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

    Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

    Here's a picture of the big spider, don't look if you are spiderphobic.

    Its funny, when Southernman was alive I used to be petrified and made him take them outside but since I've spent so long alone, I'm just like, oh another big spider, hmmm leave it, no worries. There must be half a dozen like that i have seen today in different rooms, no its not the same one all the time.Time was, I woud have screamed my head off seeing this one, I didn't even flinch at it.

    Edit to say thats not magnified and i took the photo from some way back, it really was big.

    I catch them all the time and put them outside.

    Settling snow at the tail end of a cold spell is never quite as exciting as snow on the first day, but on the plus side, my car has never looked so clean

    If I had my way I'd leave them.. it's the wife who keeps whinging at me if I don't remove them..

    You have to do it swiftly when doing it up a wall.

    I must be honest i dont mind spiders of any size,but I am frightened of rats. anytime i have to go out to the binyard where i work,i make a lot of noise before i go out so if there are any rats around they will hopefully scatter.

    Great I knew you would pm me your address we on a 10 train from London so well want lunch?.....otherwise we're going in the pub:)

    If you take the 10.30 you get to norwich at 12.30 then have to change for yarmouth, you could have lunch in norwich, plenty of interesting foodie stalls on the marketplace and only about ten minutes walk from the station.

    i don't actually mind rats at all, they don't really interact with humans.

    Do you think we will get any snow out of the northerly at Easter?. i know we are in the least favoured position for a northerly,but if it was potent enough would the showers, if they got here, be of snow?

    yeah it rare enough to see them. i know it's illogical to be scared of them. my ex liked them-thats not why i dislike them though. i guess it's a learned fear.
