  8. Thanks Goosey Lucy for sorting the photo for me, and for all your hard work organising this swap.
  9. Huge thanks to my swapper, I am thrilled with my gift. It is a notebook with an amazing quilted batik cover in purple shades, accompanied by a lovely card with part of an autumn poem inside. I don't think a photo can possibly do it justice. Goosey Lucy i think i am going to need your help with a photo please.
  10. My parcel has arrived, been squished and shaken. Is it Friday yet?
  11. Posted yesterday and got proof of postage
  12. The man who installed ours recommended baby oil, which seems to work well and is very cheap.
  13. I am by no means an expert and can only comment on my own experiences but I would look for a set of clippers with metal or ceramic blades which are removable, so that you can change the blades to get different lengths. I have a blade that cuts quite short for the face/feet etc,and one that cuts longer to use on the body. A lot of clippers have a fixed blade and plastic comb things that fit on to vary the length of the cut, I didnt find these worked well on my poodle. I haven't tried rechargable clippers, I would worry that you might get part way through a hairdo and run out of power. I found it was difficult to decide what clipper to buy I read lots of reviews and talked to loads of doggy people, the names which came up repeatedly were Oster and Andis.
  14. I had a similar experience with our poodle, she was so terrified at the groomers it was impossible to leave her and she trembled for hours afterwards. We did try a mobile groomer who came to the house, which was a bit better, and gave me a chance to observe how to clip her. Eventually I decided to try myself, and bought a cheap set of pet clippers, these may be fine for some dogs but not for poodle hair, they overheated and got jammed with hair very quickly. In the end after some years of spending hours using scissors,I bought a set of Andis clippers which were expensive but worth every penny, it has had a replacment blade as they do become blunt eventually. Sadly our poodle is no longer with us but the Andis clippers are still in regular use on our other dogs.
  15. Good luck, you will be missed. It will be a huge job relocating all your chickens.
