This spider has taken residence in a deserted glass vase (one of ten that my sister used for table decorations at her wedding last year, but seems to have been decanted into our flat). My husband noticed it a few weeks ago. I have not quite got around to dealing with it and my husband tells me that it is getting rid of flies (what flies? I ask, and he replies, exactly!). Instead we both spent the afternoon taking pictures of our eight-legged flatmate, he on his shiny new phone and me with my camera.
