Had three of those ones that drop down on silks over my bed last night ... didn't wait to check if they had designs on each other ... in the jar & out the door pdq! Another cheeky one came down onto my neck whilst I was preparing Rhubarb in kitchen ... very lucky I didn't chop it's legs off with my sharp knife! Lol

Kind of you to think of feeding it, but I'm not sure they eat jam :) That's probably why they are out to get you!!!

Oh Nige, can't stop laughing!
Lot to learn
This is currently guarding the bottom of the stairs …
You may not be able to tell from the photo but it's a whopper, as big as house spiders get … if I was scared of spiders I'd be sleeping downstairs on the sofa!
Knew there was a good reason I didn't open this post late last night Nige!

Something like that at mine & I would have spent the night in a hotel! Lol
Good job your place isn't like mine then. Earlier in the month, I threw out four of these in five days! Every morning there was another in the kitchen sink (never the bath). I don't know where they all come from! I let this one stay, although I'll probably find it trapped in the sink in a few days and then I'll evict it.
