Unknown spider in the house

I came across this one night before bed, had to get a photo. Closest ID I can get is Enoplognatha ovata (Red and White Spider) but it lacks the twin lines of dark spots on the abdomen.

I do, I've studied them for 20 years now and was county recorder in Cornwall for 9 years before I moved to Bournemouth! :-D
