Purple **^*Sparkly*^** Diamond Report 27 Apr 2013 07:53

For some time we have had a very big black spider scoot across our carpet in the lounge when we sit watching tv, it didn't bother me as long as it steered clear of my space.

Yesterday I swept the patio outside the back door of leaves and such. We have been diligently feeding the birds all winter and it was a bit messy out there.

I went into the lounge just now and saw the spider on my chair so I scooped it into a plastic cup and emptied it outside on to the grass, I saw it run back towards the house over the patio. No sooner had I come in and closed the door than one of our resident robins swooped down to the patio and before I could do anything, grabbed the poor spider and proceeded to tear it apart and eat it!

Wish I had just left the spider where it was now, it would probably have moved away later today and gone back to it's hideyhole. There was plenty of food for the birds outside, why did he have to spot the spider on the clean paving?

Feels a bit like the book Five people you meet in heaven, all about consequences.
