What a night..

Here I was on a relaxed winter evening laying in the warmth of my cosy bed, surfing the net and enjoying the silence. And what could make the evening better – yes some coffee!!
The  kids were asleep and hubby is on a business trip passing scenery like this


While I am a single parent for the evening passing scenery like this


Back to the coffee, yes that was a great idea to warm me up a bit more. So I remove myself from the comfort of my bed, walk to the kitchen, switch the kitchen lights on, and happily stroll towards the kettle.

And there it was!!!
I have an intruder in my kitchen!

Now normally I would get Ed the Fearless to aid but he is looking at scenery like this

So, here I was, alone in the house and that meant one thing……poor old ME was left to come up with a war strategy!

So I prepare for battle….I prepare myself mentally which took longer than I expected.

I open the kitchen door – I had a plan!

I stood in the perfect direction armed with a broom (in hope that my weapon of choice is going to work)

and I swept that  spider right out of my house!! (off course it jumped and fought, and certainly was a worthy opponent)

What an adrenalin rush!

What a night!!!

P.S I did eventually have my now well deserved mug of coffee!
