Actually, when I sit in my sitting room I don't really have a view. There is a huge and elderly television that cuts out most of the view. Also the angles in the room and outside mean that if I do look out my view would consist of some very overgrown laurels and a corrugated roof. Except, for a while, the window had a visitor. It was a spider!
I am not a huge fan of spiders, but in this case I found it exceptional. There was a spider that had spun a web over our window. Now, had I been as enthusiastic housewife as I should I would have gone out and somehow reached the window (very awkward) and immediately removed the cobweb. Except, well, it was nice seeing the creature. The spider was certainly more domesticated than I, always tidying and patching up the web and I could watch the repair work instead of baby tv, which was a bit of a relief.
Now the web is tattered and crumbs of dead leaves are filling it. I really need to tie a couple of brooms together and do something like tie a duster over one end and get rid of the web. As it is the web remains as a sad reminder that the visitor has left.
