For those of you who might be interested....

Here's a baby huntsman we have currently living in our kitchen. He's currently about the size of a quarter (and, yes I know how big a quarter is now! Heh) and extraordinarily cute at this stage (as all babies are). He tends to live in one corner, but I've had to move him away as I've been painting (am currently painting the kitchen) because I certainly don't want to kill him. I did try to put my hand beside him in the photo, so you could get some idea of his size, but he had a major panic attack and was running all over the place and I'm sure his wee life flashed before his eyes. ;~P

Hubby named him last night. :~D

Here you can see him on the cornice.

and here's a close up.

We're having a new kitchen put in next week, so I may have to move him. Don't wan't the workmen squishing him by accident!

I haven't seen a huntsman in ages!! I think they're getting rare here in Adelaide.. I caught a black spider yesterday, don't know what it is though, so we're keeping it safe until we can find out what it is!

We had a wonderful black house spider in our bathroom for a couple of yrs. She was the BEST fly-catcher. I called her Drucilla. XD She had at least 2 batches of babies (none of whom stayed) and I was really sad when she upped and died recently.

I actually have 2 spiders in my computer room at the moment, but I think they're the brown house spider variety. But they're excellent in killing the midges that we have round here! Which is excellent because we had a lot! And the bites were terrible..

Kirsty, how do you make your journal do that lovely 'disolve' thing?

You know.. Since changing my layout I've been trying to figure that one out myself! I wasn't sure if it only did it to me, or if it did it to everyone! But I'll let you know as soon as I know myself! (Which I am working on!)

I think I may have just worked it out.. Maybe.. When customizing your journal layout, right in the end box (of the easy edit mode) you have the whole HTML box.. At the top, under the title of your journal put in -
<@META http-equiv=Page-Enter content="revealTrans(transition=12, duration=5.0)"@>
<@META http-equiv=Page-Exit content="revealTrans(transition=12, duration=5.0)"@>

Without the at signs. I'm pretty sure that's the coding.. But I'm not sure if you need a closing tag. As far as I can see, you don't.. But I can't be positive! >_< It was actually at duration=1.0 but I changed it to 5.0. I guess you can use whichever you like! ;o)
