After very few hours of sleep and a good deal of spider-related nightmares, I have returned home from a long day at work with a plan.
|Less gun, more hairspray!|
Stage Two - I have located the masking tape!
Stage Three - Got down on hands and knees and applied masking tape to every gap identified during stage one
Stage Four - liberally applied baking powder in front of larger and harder to block entry sites
Stage Five - When child is in bed (approx 8pm) grab everything I require (book, laptop, drinks, snacks TV guide etc) and head up to my bedroom without looking at the floor.
Stage Six - Make nest in bed and stay put until husband comes home!
Stage Seven (Battle mode) - Should spider appear, arm myself with mega-super-extra-hold hairspray and spray like my life depends on it!
Whilst this may all seem a little heavy handed, it should be pointed out that I am officially the most terrified person in the universe when it comes to spiders!
Wish me luck!
