Win a Cheese & Wine Hamper

Win a Cheese & Wine Hamper from Find Me A Gift

From Find Me A Gift

Could your letter be the Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter? This month we're giving away a fabulous Godminster Cheese Hamper from the lovely people at Find Me A Gift worth £64.99.

The luxury Godminster Cheese Hamper is wonderfully presented in a wicker basket. Filled with delicious cheese, biscuits and Elderflower drink, it makes a perfect Summer treat.

The rustic picnic basket includes 200g of Oak Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar and a 400g round of Vintage Organic Cheddar. There are also two packets of award winning biscuits; Rosemary Water Biscuits and Oat Digestive Biscuits – the perfect pairing with a spot of creamy cheddar.

Win a Cheese & Wine Hamper from Find Me A Gift

There is also a delicious jar of chutney to bring out the flavour of the cheese. But this is not just any jar, you get a glass kilner jar of award winning Apple & Beetroot Chutney for a really special flavour. This is perfectly paired with a choice of Oat Digestive Biscuits and Rosemary Water Biscuits to make a lovely snack.

But wait, we’re not done yet there’s one final treat in store and that’s a rather elegant bottle of Elderflower Vodka Spirit Drink, an inspired change to the usual ‘wine’ most people pair with cheese, but a tipple that’s been carefully selected to complement beautifully with the cheese and the biscuits!

The Godminster Cheese Hamper contents include:

· 200g Oak Smoked Organic Cheddar
· 400g Vintage Organic Cheddar
· Packet of Rosemary Water Biscuits
· Packet of Oat Digestive Biscuits
· A Glass Kilner Jar of Apple and Beetroot Chutney

Here is a picture of my kitten, Richie. She loves to sleep on my legs.

We called her Richie before we found out she was a girl, because we were told she was a boy!

Dear Chelsea

Thank you for sending in your lovely picture of Richie sleeping on your legs. She is really beautiful.

I hope she brings you a lot of happiness.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

What I Enjoy Most About Spring And The Warm Weather



I transplant various little plants each year in the hope that at least one or two survive the clay bogged soil in my garden. Not all of them survive I suspect because the soil doesn’t drain very well and to be honest I don’t always have a clue what I am doing!

This year I have spent the last 2 months looking for a job and whilst waiting to hear back from the endless applications made I took comfort in the solace of my garden. I fed my plants more often and enjoyed the sun on my back while weeding and mowing, drinking a cup of tea with muddied hands, all that good stuff!

The first surprise was a Gooseberry bush put in over a year ago which has suddenly spurted forth a nice fat cluster of berries, the small twig which I thought would never ever grow is now a small but promising Fig tree with healthy looking leaves. Having cut back some shrubbery in the shadier “jungle" section of the garden I discovered a fern that had curled into a snail shell shape and has now unravelled into a luscious looking plant.

A patch of wild garlic has also appeared, probably blown in by seeds (which tastes yummy in an omelette). What I love the most about the Spring and warmer weather is how nature reminds me not to ever give up for what we wish for may be just under the surface about to sprout leaves.

Isobelle Forde, Manchester


Dear Isobelle
 
Thank you for telling us about your garden and the lovely things you have grown. It's wonderful that you have found it so inspiring and that it encourages you to never give up.

Good luck with the job hunting.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Meet Tayton our gorgeous Newfoundland who has made it her life's mission to constantly be messy.



Be it sand, swamp or mud she will find it and roll in it.



Here she is after getting herself stuck in a swamp full of mud. She was very proud of herself! And after a walk along the beach. Both in the last week!



All I can do is laugh, bath her AGAIN and then settle down to read Sixtyplusurfers while she sulks.

Jocelynne Harrison, Durham

Dear Jocelynne
 
Tayton is gorgeous - especially all done up in her pretty flowers and ribbons.

It looks like she had a fabulous time on the beach, rolling and playing in the sand. I bet you had lots of fun cleaning her up afterwards!

Melissa Braiden, Letters & Admin

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I  love my little black cat Dolly Diva who is always getting up to mischief!

This is her when she was young and practising for Cirque du Soleil!

I always had dogs before but I absolutely adore her even though she swings from my curtains!

Ann Marie Donegan

Dear Ann
 
Thank you for sending in your picture of Dolly Diva she looks adorable - and quite an acrobat!

Let's hope she doesn't get into too much mischief on your curtains and around the house!

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

A Poem for My Father

My father always puts a smile upon my face
Whether I'm down in the dumps or just won first place.
He's so very special and sweet
Hard-working I think he deserves a treat!
With age my love only grows stronger,
I know my love for him couldn't be any longer.
My dad's love could not be bought at a cost,
He's amazing and without him I'm lost.

Tammy Tudor, Wigan

Dear Tammy

What a beautiful poem. Thank you for sending it in.

Readers' Letters

Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers




I have always had a love of literature and as a child, it was my dream to become a writer. Sadly, I lost my father in 2009 and as a way of coping with the grief, I began writing poetry and short stories.

I find that writing is a great means of escape and can be extremely therapeutic. Currently, I am working on a poetry anthology and am hoping to get some of my short stories published. I am fortunate enough to have a very active imagination, so am always thinking up new ideas for stories.

I am sending you one of the short poems I have written, entitled 'Flight'. I hope that you and Sixtyplusurfers readers enjoy reading it. I have also attached a photo of myself with a friend, on a recent visit to the former Hampshire home of one of my favourite writers, Jane Austen.

It was wonderful to see where she lived and where she wrote some of her most popular novels. Creative Writing is a wonderful pastime and I encourage all of your readers to get their literary juices flowing and put pen to paper.

Flight

Curled stiffly, bud like in repose,
Miracle in miniature.
Amorphous and grey,
You wriggle into life.
Shaking off all dullness, you become dazzling.
Your brightness will colour in this world.
Take flight and gleam.
Beautiful, bold, butterfly.

Alison Nuorto, Bournemouth

Dear Alison

Thank you for telling us about yourself and sending in your lovely photograph and excellent poem. It's wonderful that creative writing has been so rewarding for you. Good luck with the poetry anthology. Let us know how you get on.

We are delighted to let you know that you are the winner of this month's Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Deluxe Supreme Fruit Basket from First4Fruit.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor
 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 


We recently visited The Lake District and stayed in a beautiful caravan at Flookburgh. We were extremely lucky because we had such fantastic weather. We took my mum in law and my son.

We visited Lake Windermere on the Saturday. It was  a wonderful place to visit with fabulous views and lovely boat trips. We travelled over to Ambleside where we enjoyed a game of golf and looked around the little shops.



Then on the Sunday we visited Fell Foot which is great for people with children and dogs. There's boat rides, barbecue areas and lots of paddling areas.

We all had a great family weekend and a good old fashioned day out.

Sharon Jones, West Yorkshire

Dear Sharon

Thank you for telling us about your fabulous family holiday in The Lake District and sharing your lovely photographs.

 

How wonderful to have a holiday all together and enjoy the beauty of the Lakes.

We'd love to hear about other readers' holidays.


Murray Jacobs, Managing Editor

 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 
A Barrow full of Babies

 
 

The farm girls are growing up in a tough environment with both their parents working full time and flat out on their small Livestock farm. They see animals born, animals die and animals having to be sold.

Their mother says that she does not want to lie to them and because they are on a farm, they see what is going on.

However in some ways they are lucky. Having chickens, collecting the eggs. Helping to feed the baby lambs. Having an outdoor life and space. But it's quite lonely living out in the sticks. Never having holidays etc.

Luckily there are two of them and they certainly make the best of things come rain or shine. Sun preferred!

Susie Groom

Dear Susie

Thank you for sending in your lovely photograph. Your granddaughters are beautiful. The fresh air and farm life are definitely doing them a lot of good.

We'd love to hear about other readers' grandchildren.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Sheep Rescue!

Spring is my favourite season because, suddenly, everything in nature is wonderfully renewed. My favourite thing about Spring are the baby animals and in particular - the cute, fluffy, legs-out-of-control spring lambs!

They are the cutest - and so entertaining to watch. So when we went out into the countryside last week to do just that, but we were horrified to notice a ewe, with two lambs helplessly looking on (and still trying to suckle), stuck on her back with flailing legs.

She was getting more and more exhausted as we watched but was completely unable to right herself. I had heard of this happening and that the sheep actually dies.

So, with no more ado, off we go to rescue this sheep in distress. It was the easiest rescue ever; one firm but gentle push and she was up and away - complete with her two bleating lambs in tow.

There was no word of thanks not even a backward glance - just pure relief as they galloped away. What a lovely feeling it gave us to help out that little family.

Since then I have kept watching the little video my daughter took of the event, and it gives me so much pleasure!

Ann Grisdale, Poole


Dear Ann
 
What a lovely story. How wonderful that you were able to save the sheep's life and help the little family in distress.

Thank you for sharing your story.

This is my friend Martyn Storer celebrating his 70th aboard the Flying Scotsman.

I managed to push forward and get him on the footplate.


Deborah Munn, Sheffield

Dear Deborah

Thank you for sending in your picture of your friend Martyn Storer celebrating his 70th birthday aboard the Flying Scotsman. It looks like he had a fabulous day.


We'd love to hear how other readers and their friends and families have celebrated their birthdays, anniversaries or retirement.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

The Circus

Today I went to the circus

I'd never seen one before

I slowly approached the enormous tent

And then I heard the lions roar

Joining the queue, I went inside
Amazed at what I could see
The ringmaster stood in his shiny red coat
He seemed to be looking straight at me

In came the jugglers, one by one
Throwing the balls in the air, higher and higher
They finished their act in spectacular style
Catching sticks that were all afire

The horses next with pretty red plumes
Came trotting by in a graceful way
The foal kept getting left behind
I think he really wanted to play

Now it was time for the elephants
Each one holding the other one's tail
And right at the end was the baby
Compared to the others, he looked very frail

Suddenly a cage appeared
And out came all the big cats

The trainer came and cracked his whip
Slowly the lions and tigers all sat

Onto the stool, then down again
Through the hoops, the crowd wanted more
But every time the whip was cracked
They always responded with a roar

A roll of drums and a gasp was heard
And a light appeared in the sky
At the top of the tent they'd hung a wire
All at once my mouth was dry

With a pole in his hand he started across
I couldn't watch, I closed my eyes
I opened them up, he was almost there
The "He's there he's there" I heard the cries

They all appeared at the end of the show
Jugglers and clowns together
The animals paraded around and around
The ringmaster looked at the end of his tether

I said goodbye to the circus today
They'll be back next year to see us
I will remember all of my life
The day that I went to the circus


Barry Winters

Dear Barry
 
Thank you for sending in your fabulous poem. You've really captured the atmosphere and excitement of the circus.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Eye Spy with my Granddaughter


Playing eye spy in the car with my four year old Granddaughter this morning went like this:

Four year old: I spy with my little eye something beginning with ‘P’

Me: People, pavement, plum tree

Four year old: No silly, PIG

Me: But where’s the pig?

Four year old: There’s no Pig silly, this is eye spy!

Well, that’s one way to play it!

Marion, Nottingham
 

Dear Marion

What a funny story. You must have had so much fun playing eye spy in the car with your granddaughter.


We'd love to hear about other readers' grandchildren and the funny things they have said.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Handy Tip

Grandma likes to buy 'character' bubble baths to make bath time more fun.

Unfortunately the Grandchildren get itchy skin when using these liquid soaps, so she empties out the itchy product and refills them with the skin-friendly type they normally use.


The kids get to use the fun product without any side effects!

Alison Pearce (Auntie of the Kids)
 

Dear Alison

Grandma sounds very caring. How lovely to buy the grandchildren 'character' bubble baths and  soaps and take the time to refill them with more gentle products.

However, perhaps the manufacturers should create more gentle products for young children when producing this type of product.


Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor
 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I had a phone call from someone that said they were from Monster Energy. I immediately hung up thinking they were from a gas or electric supplier.

They rang several times so I ignored the call. Later I received an email stating I had won a bike in a competition I had entered. I had no idea monster energy was a drinks company, I apologised saying that my grandchildren had been playing with my phone.

I'm glad they couldn't see my red face through the phone!

Lee Hall, Kent
 

Dear Lee

What a funny story. I can see how you couldn't quite believe why Monster Energy would be calling you! Luckily they were persistent and you were able to claim your bike prize.

However,
it is always wise to be careful on the phone. Some of the junk calls I have received lately have become increasingly imaginative!

But they tend to give the game away from the start by asking to speak to 'Mrs Its-sock-ovich' and then I know it's a spam!

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Just Like Apple Pie

She stood by the cooker
Pinny tied tight at the back
Middle aged spread,
A twenty year old memory
The curves he fell in love with
Half a century ago,
Grew alongside their love, their knowledge
And over the apron strings
Home baked, sweet aromas still entice
Mouth watering deliciousness
Stimulating forgotten senses
Long-buried memories stirred
Of family meals round the heavily scarred oak table
Individual voices blended into one
Competing for centre stage
Until they each received
Their very own slice of apple pie
Father threw mother a wink as he declined
Saying he'd save his apple pie for later

Jo Copsey, London
 

Dear Jo

Thank you for sending in your funny poem.

There's nothing better than a good old slice of apple pie!

Closing date for this month's competitions is 31st July 2016 - so don't forget to enter.

If you live overseas, but would like to enter a UK competition on the Sixtyplusurfers website - please let us know if there is someone in the UK who can accept the prize on your behalf. Please let us know in good time if there is a change of address, you are moving house, going on holiday, or if you would like your prize to be delivered to a different address.

Please allow around 28 - 36 days for delivery of your prizes, as they are sent out by our competition sponsors rather than Sixtyplusurfers. But do let us know if you have any problems.

Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter Competition


Win a Luxury Wine Trio from the RSPB

Win a Luxury Wine Trio from the RSPB


If you enjoy visiting the Sixtyplusurfers website and entering our competitions, then why not subscribe to the
Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter.
 

Free of charge, we send out the Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter once a month to keep you up-to-date with all of our news. Find out about all the new competitions running on Sixtyplusurfers and all the latest features and articles we have planned.

 

To receive the Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter once a month, just email your name, postal address and email address. And you can receive a monthly update of all our news.

 

If you are already receiving our Newsletter, you might like to recommend a friend or someone from your family - so they can also keep in touch with Sixtyplusurfers on a regular basis.

 

This month, Sixtyplusurfers is offering one lucky reader who joins the Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter mailing list or recommends a friend, the chance to win a Luxury Wine Trio worth £49.99 from the RSPB.

The RSPB, the UK’s largest wildlife conservation charity is giving away this Luxury Wine Trio as part of its Giving Nature a Home campaign. The charity is asking people to provide a space for wildlife in their own gardens and outside spaces – whether it by building a hedgehog shelter, putting up a nestbox or creating a pond.

Aimed at encouraging and inspiring people across the UK to create homes for wildlife in their gardens and outdoor spaces, the RSPB’s Giving Nature a Home campaign was launched in June 2013 in response to the worrying findings of the State of Nature report, which confirmed that in the last 50 years, 60% of UK species have declined.

The prize consists of a beautifully presented trio of high-quality wines - a fruity French red, a citrusy Spanish white and an aromatic white from New Zealand. Supplied in a straw-filled, FSC certified wooden gift box, it contains three 75cl bottles.

RSPB & Virgin Wines partnership

We have worked with Virgin Wines to select a range of environmentally-friendly wines. The growers we have selected have realised they can get better quality wine by working with nature not against it, and we hope you will also agree when you try this wonderful selection. Find out about what each vineyard chosen does to help protect our environment
here.

Tasting notes

Famille Perrin Cotes Du Rhone: A classic Southern Rhone blend driven by red and black fruit-filled Grenache, from Grand Prebois vineyards, very close to the Beaucastel estate, plus spicy, earthy Syrah from the exciting Vinsobres area. The rest is a carefully-selected melange of Carignan, Mourvedre and Cinsault.

Campo Bonito Organic Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc: There's a pretty nose of flowers and citrus fruits, plus a lovely intensity in the mouth that gives a sense of harmony and balance. And being organic, you'll find a much more open, easy expression of fruit.

Sherwood Stratum Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc: This Sauvignon shows abundant aromas of gooseberries and pepper. The palate is fresh, lively and shows a rich concentration and lingering finish.

For more inspiration and ideas, go to the RSPB
online shop. All net profits go to helping birds and wildlife.

For Your Chance to Win
   the Luxury Wine Trio
        from the RSPB


To enter the Newsletter Competition just send us your name, postal address and email address and then tell us if you would like to join our regular mailing list.

Then send your contact details to us at:

Power Bank


Win a TP-Link Power Bank

To keep your phone and tablet charged on the go


This month we've teamed up
TP-LINK for  our Sixtyplusurfers Facebook competition.

We're offering one lucky reader the chance to win a Power Bank from
TP-LINK to keep your phone and tablet charged on the go

The explosion of on-demand and streamed programmes via apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast is very welcome to those over 60 with increasingly busy lifestyles. But have you ever wondered why 4K HD screen resolutions can be poor, or why your smart TV is buffering, or even why you have slow download and data speeds?

Many people don’t realise it’s their wireless performance letting them down. This problem can be easily solved by purchasing a powerline device, which delivers internet to the closest electrical socket, using a home’s electrical circuit. The latest models can support speeds of up to 1200 Mbps, and come with a range of ports to create secure wired networks for desktops, smart TVs or even the grandchildren’s game consoles.

To combat poor performance, TP-LINK, the world's leading networking solutions brand,² has unveiled its latest powerline adapter – AV1200 Gigabit Passthrough Powerline ac Wi-Fi Kit TL- WPA8630PKIT. And to mark the launch, it is giving away another of its latest powerbanks to one lucky Sixtyplusurfers reader.

Win a TP-Link Power Bank

Around the size of your hand, the 5200m Ah powerbank will easily fit into any small rucksack or handbag. Offering the fastest charging, this powerbank is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and Android, and most 5V input digital devices, and
is available via Amazon for £16.78.
