Small magic

Our house is on a hill on a hill, steps leading up to the door between some big bushes and trees. A spider has built the most perfect arch between on either side of the steps. It looks perfectly planned, and she sits there seeming most content.

Naturally she will extend. Even now, I am trying hard to make sure my head and her house never collide.

That reminds me of your book, which I enjoyed. Feels like a long time ago now - it's one of the few I have kept, rather than giving away. Do not bump into the web and allow yourself to become a crystalline confection for a prince.

This is a lovely comment to greet me as I log in to gmail:-) I am so glad you enjoyed the book. Kemsing Publishing has just acquired the electronic rights to the Spiders Bride, so it may be getting another outing.

And it's good advice too...thank you for reminding me of it!

As you realise you need to retile the roof, repoint the walls and replace the floorboards, she will look smugger and smugger.

She and her sisters have decided to build an arachnid condominium around the house. We may have to discuss ground rent.
