…More photos – once we realized it was better not to sleep where we could drown (the story about the bats is HERE, the story about flooding is HERE), we moved the bed out of the pit, leaving our living room in there (anything electrical was above swimming pool level).
Prior to building our extension, though, we tried this (below).
It looked good, but unfortunately that covering just encouraged the spiders to move in. Lots of them. They were the big Huntsman with the leg-span of a saucer – don’t worry, I don’t have any photos of those, and no, I (probably) won’t tell the story, either.
Greg put up a frame for a patio, and I filled in the walls with mud. That sofa was our fold-down bed.
I did get further than these photos show, I don’t have pictures, but you get the idea.
Generally, I scrubbed about looking like this…
But I did get a decent close-up photo. My neighbour was studying photography and she took this nice picture.
Don’t forget that was me back then, I’m older now (but I’m feeling brave, so I might soon put up a current picture of myself. Greg’s getting the camera out this weekend – no promises, though). :D
And that’s it for now.
Today I’m placing all these posts with photos into a gallery accessed from the top drop-down menu for easy reference. That way you won’t have to dig through lots of posts to find those snakes again. :D
