Anybody know what this spider is in my house? NE UK

Newcastle, United Kingdom

He's been making a web across most of my bedroom ceiling for the past few days and he even lowered himself down to the floor and picked up a small piece of tissue. No idea what he was going to do with that tissue but he dropped it just as it was within an inch of him and the ceiling which was a shame. Having trouble identifying him. He's about 2cm long.

It's a female European garden spider, Araneus diadematus - they are very commonly seen at this time of year - http://www.uksafari.com/cross.htm
