Draw the line at a funnel-web spider
SINCE moving into her Abel Tasman Drive home six months ago Robyn has had many visitors.
Among the uninvited guests have been three bush turkeys, a carpet snake, blue tongue lizard and a water dragon.
But on Sunday night this self confessed wildlife lover from way back drew the line ? there was no way she was laying out the welcome mat for a funnel-web spider.
"He was walking up the hallway towards my bedroom ? it looked like he knew where he wanted to go," Robyn said.
"It was a nightmare. To say I got a fright is an understatement. He reared up to strike and we could see his fangs."
A half a bottle of Mortein later and Robyn's heart started to beat at a normal rate again.
However she admits that from now on she won't be sliding her feet into any unchecked shoes.
