The Unbread

Arachnophilia

Those of you who read my tale of woe a couple of months ago, about how I'd been locked out of my bookcase for months because of a missing key, may like to know that the truant has now turned up.

Today my daughter and I got the Halloween decorations out of their cupboard, ready for her forthcoming party (I will be banished to my room for the duration). Amongst them was an inflatable spider, and poking from the hole used to attach it to some kind of hanger was this...

Key!

It seems we'd hung the spider from the bookcase key last Halloween, then packed it carefully away with the key still attached.

I have now opened my bookcase and given my books and my Aslan a cuddle. Meanwhile, we decided to go with a different spider this year...
