The Cringe Factor

I am not sure if I said but my new job is only four days a week.
Ultimately I want to use the three day weekend for my writing and photography.
But for now it means I have extra time to work on the cottage to get it fit for habitation.

Before I say a word about that I should mention this week's WIIW.

A few good guesses but no one was on the money. Now I warn you I will give the answer at the bottom and it is likely to cause the same reaction as it does for Deb - a cringe.

Now back to the house.
Today I managed to get the last of the lining out.
This piccie is looking from what will be the lounge room through the bathroom wall and into the enclosed front veranda.

Speaking of the bathroom, when I checked the floor a large chunk of it was rotted so I have had those floorboards out.
 It looks pretty dismal at the moment doesn't it?

So now to the answer to WIIW.
This fellow is a medium sized "huntsman" spider about 4 inches across. Up in the rainforest country we see them up to about a hand-span across. Totally harmless - except to arachnophobes!

EEEEW! I'm with Deb. Totally cringe-worthy.

Awww it's a lovely spider!! Awwww!! Take care

Ack! I hate spiders! And I completely agree with Deb but I'm going to say more like shudder worthy!

Four inches across??? No sir, that isn't "harmless". If I came across a spider that big, I'd have a heart attack.

I'd much rather look at pictures of your gutted house than that ugly spider. And speaking of the former, it doesn't look dismal. It looks like an amazing work in progress.

Looks like you really have your work cut out for you - it's going to take a lot of three-day weekends to get this place livable!
