It's when you can't see them, but can feel them that you need to worry!

You won't believe this...BUT...last night in bed I felt a feathery touch moving on my arm... I turned on the bedside lamp and I think I saw a small spider...(NO SPECS!!)..so I gave it a flick to the bottom left-hand side of the bed and went to sleep.... my theory...he is more scared that me..haven't seen him/her since...lol...maybe it is because I have other more pressing worries at the moment????????

well....................... he is recovering from shingles...he is recovering from low hemoglobin, he is recovering from low blood pressure..he has autoimmune hemolytic anemia... another off shoot from his low immune system.
Without sounding flippant..he is recovering... is back in hospital...may be home after the weekend.
When I saw him today after 4 bags of blood he was great... in fact his old self.. now they have him on steroids. He shall remain in hospital for observation until all systems click back into gear.
I have to say where on earth would we be without Universities that train these marvellous doctors..

You'd best watch out when you bring him home then Midgin! :wink: :lol:



last night in bed I felt a feathery touch moving on my arm... I turned on the bedside lamp and I think I saw a small spider...(NO SPECS!!)..so I gave it a flick to the bottom left-hand side of the bed and went to sleep....


There's no way that one would be getting a second chance to come back for a bite!

Midgin, I do hope the 'bus driver' is feeling better....I pray for a speedy recovery for him, as for shingles, how painful, I suffered from these not that long ago, so very very painful, I felt like I'd been hit on my ribcage with a baseball bat, it hurt for weeks and the rash was so sensitive I was afraid of getting touched because I knew it would hurt, I was literally crying with the pain...I do hope he is on the road to recovery soon.

less light means the aperture is open longer which means that more likely to be affected by movement. If you use a tripod then maybe you'll get better shots.

Thanks, guzzigirl... a tripod is on the list for someday soon, however I'm not sure why someone else can use a pretty ordinary roll-film camera in the same light/conditions and have the pics turn out okay and I have this wonderful, ridgy-didge camera and they turn out awful.

That's me too!! Learn how to use the manual features of my camera and also what all the various terms actually mean!! :oops: Got a couple of digital camera books, so they are a help too. Did an online CNet digi course but it was pretty useless! :(

Yep, more study required, methinks....
