Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I thought I would write to tell you of my recent experience with my dog and in a way point out my experiences, in a hope that if there is one person that learns from my letter, it has helped at least one dog.

I have had Lizzie for about 6 years and she was about 5 years old when we got her and she was a rescue dog who was found abandoned in a lay-by in a very bad shape both physically and mentally. She has over the years learnt to trust and love us and is now a very important and adored member of our family.

When we got her from the kennels it was pointed out that she may have already been spayed as she had a scar in the right place so it was possible we might not need to spay her, however we waited to see if she came into season. She didn’t and it was the same for a few years to come.

Then when she was about 9 to our surprise she had a season and then another one about 6 months later. We didn’t know that for all those years she had had what is known as a ‘silent season’ and she had not been spayed. I didn’t know this existed! We discussed it and decided that at her age spaying would be dangerous due to the general anaesthetic.

I was very wrong not to get her spayed then, as recently Lizzie had to go through a life saving operation suffering with Pyometra. This is something older unspayed bitches will get and it is a common rapid killer. She underwent a major operation at the age of 11 from an infection that nearly killed her.

I was lucky that I was told the symptoms to look for by my sister and got her into the vets just in time. If I had known about silent seasons, I would have made more investigations into whether she had been spayed or not, although it can be difficult even for vets to tell.

I would urge any person with an unspayed dog to read up on silent seasons and Pyometra as it is so so common and a deadly killer of older bitches.

Lizzie is fine now and although grumbling about the lampshade collar she has to wear, she is back to her fun loving self.

Kim Styles

Dear Kim

Thank you for sending in pictures of your beautiful dog Lizzie and raising awareness about Pyometra in dogs which haven’t been spayed. 

We are so glad to hear that Lizzie is recovering and hope she will be able to take off her lampshade collar soon. 

We have also featured a picture of Lizzie on our Pet Care page in our Super Star Pet Picture Frame.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

On Easter Monday me and my partner and children went to Chepstow Racecourse and met Mister Maker who was performing there.

My daughter Sheriah 5 loves watching him on TV but unfortunately was so shy on every picture we have she is looking away.

But she enjoyed the show which was the main thing and in August we are going back to see ChuckleVision and Andy Day from CBeebies.

Jeanette Leighton

Dear Jeanette

Thank you for sending in your lovely photograph. It must have been very exciting to meet Mister Maker. It sounds like you had lots of fun with your family at Chepstow.

We hope you have a great time when you see ChuckleVision and Andy Day from CBeebies. 

We’d love to see more photographs of readers and your days out.

Cooking Disaster

A few years ago, my family decided to celebrate New Year’s Eve by making some popcorn. I was much more confident in my culinary skills than I should have been, and thought I’d whip some up on the stovetop.  How hard could it be?

I poured oil into a saucepan and added popcorn kernels.  But the silly corn wouldn’t pop!  I tried shaking the pan while holding the lid as tight as possible.  All I accomplished was making a mess, ending up with oil everywhere.  And no popcorn!

The next morning, I began to heat the skillet to make some breakfast. Our stove was electric, with little metal drip pans under the coils. Without thinking of the mess from the night before, I cranked up the heat and put on some bacon.

A few minutes later, I was folding some laundry in the next room when I smelled something odd.  You guessed it – I had set the oil in the drip pan on fire.  Flames were shooting up around the skillet!  I ran over, grabbed the pan, and tossed it into the sink, fortunately remembering that you can’t toss water on a grease fire.  I tried smothering the flames with the metal skillet lid, and luckily, it worked!

But that was not to be the last time I caused catastrophe in the kitchen.  Early one morning, I decided to make biscuits for the kids’ breakfast.  I set the oven to 400 degrees and started gathering ingredients.

A few minutes later as I mixed the dough, I began to smell something odd.  I thought to myself, “I really need to clean those crumbs off the oven floor.”  If only it were a few leftover crumbs!

Actually, I had left an omelette skillet and a baking dish in the oven, along with its plastic lid – which was melting down in strings all over the racks and everything!

Once again, I tossed my ruined pans into the sink, fusing the skillet into the plastic.  By now the whole kitchen was filling with acrid smoke. The smoke detector began to beep, and I ripped out the battery, fearing that it would wake the kids.

Even though it was cold, I opened the windows and patio door to wave the stench outside.  I’m luckier than I deserve, because it cleared out pretty quickly.  I was so worried that we would all be poisoned by the fumes!

I must have been quite a sight, waving a big piece of cardboard over my head wildly, tears running down my face, while smoke poured out the window and plastic dripped down into the depths of the oven.

In the end, there were no injuries – except to my pride!

Xania Williams

Dear Xania

Thank you for telling us about your cooking disasters. It’s lucky you have a smoke alarm and a good sense of humour!

Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win a Luxury Break at Combermere Abbey

Combermere Abbey, the award winning historic estate steeped in a thousand years of history, is offering one lucky reader and a guest the chance to win an overnight bed and breakfast stay in the fabulous North Wing of the Abbey. Located on the Cheshire/Shropshire border, this stunning venue was recently restored to its former glory following a major restoration project and is now one of Cheshire’s best recognised historic landmarks.

Combermere Abbey was built as a Cistercian monastery in 1133, before Sir George Cotton was gifted the estate following Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536 and a Tudor manor house was added to the original building. Throughout the years, the house was remodelled in the Gothic and Jacobean style, making the Abbey a jewel of historic interest and a living timeline of English style.

As the winners enter the gates of the estate, they will be enveloped in the peace and quiet of the English countryside as the private driveway winds its way through hundreds of acres of parklands bordered by ancient woods. As the North Wing comes into view, guests will be able to take in the stunning Gothic architecture as the Abbey stands proudly next to the tranquil mere.

Walking through the historic doors of the North Wing, guests will be transported back to the elegance of earlier centuries as they are welcomed by their very own butler, who will show them around the two floors of the Wing, arrange their dinner reservation and settle them in.

The lucky winner (and their even luckier guest!) can expect to wake up to a delicious breakfast made with locally sourced ingredients served in the elegant Dining Room – including apple juice from Combermere’s very own fruit tree maze.

World-renowned interior designer Nina Campbell was appointed to design the North Wing with its two luxurious boutique bedrooms with en-suite bath and shower rooms: The Salamanca and The Bhurtpore.

The Tudor study offers the perfect place to relax and unwind with a good book, before venturing out to one of the local eateries for a spot of supper – whether you’re looking for comforting gastropub classics or modern haute cuisine, Combermere Abbey is perfectly located within easy reach of a range of restaurants.

The beauty of a stay at Combermere lies in the freedom to explore. Whether it’s a walk through the rolling countryside, an adventure into the ancient woodland or a stroll around the mere and through the restored Walled Gardens, it is there to enjoy. Redolent in history and elegance, guests enjoy total privacy on this 900-year old estate and live the ‘Downton Abbey’ dream with modern amenities.

Guests who would prefer to bring their four legged friend along with them will also have the chance to instead choose one of Combermere Abbey’s ten luxury self-catering courtyard cottages.

Converted from former 19th century stables, each beautifully appointed and individually designed – the cottages are dog friendly and very popular.

Guests can choose either a one night midweek stay for two in Combermere Abbey’s North Wing or a two night midweek stay in a self-catering cottage.

Star Letter Winner!

 Our Star Letter 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Let me tell you a story about cats. Yes, yes I am a self confessed Cat Lady.

Back in 2014 my life seemed pretty good, I had a job managing a day care nursery, I had my little flat and life was generally good, I would hop on a couple of buses during the weekend and visit fayre’s and walk along the bay, in general I really was happy.

As the months went by, work was becoming very stressful and I was beginning to struggle. After months of pushing and pushing myself as I was undertaking more responsibility, my doctor prescribed me anti-depressants but only a few weeks later the owner of the day care nursery texted me on pay day and told me that they had resigned their registration – closing the nursery down and it would be illegal to operate from that day forward.

The owner not only vanished from the face of the earth but also took all of our wages for the month and the parents nursery fees. I can honestly say my life came crashing down. My first concern was keeping a roof over my head but depression took over. I lay on the sofa and spent my days crying.

I didn’t apply for housing benefit or any benefits. I wasn’t in a place to do so and nor did I tell my family. It didn’t take long for my gas and electric to run out. I had no food in the cupboard and after several nights on a cold November I attempted to take my own life with medication.

Days later, I miraculously woke up, I’m not sure how….but that day I washed and walked in to the local Job Centre and broke down to the employee on the door and explained what had happened. That lovely man wrote down everything I needed to do and where to go and even drew me directions. By the end of the day, I had emergency money for food, gas and electric. The next day I contacted my mother who all helped me out.

Months later I was still struggling to cope and my little sister adopted two goldfish and in my excitement for her, I impulsively emailed my landlady and asked if I could adopt a cat and she said, “Yes!”

I adopted this little man called Milo who has turned into my best friend. As time went by I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and even as I lost friends due to isolating myself…Milo was there for me.

He gave me a reason to get up in the mornings. When I cry myself to sleep he climbs up the bed to my pillow and lays beside me purring to soothe me, and after one particularly bad night…my little buddy reached over and put his precious paw on my face.

I cannot even begin to tell you how much he moved me and I will always be so grateful for his care and companionship.

It’s not all sadness either, Milo loves to play and he has me up on my feet and moving around. He makes me laugh when the days are tough and when I would prefer to go hungry rather than venture to the local shop.

I would never ever let my boy starve and he motivates me to go out.

I am not completely better, not even close. It’s been a long roller-coaster of emotions but while I am on the road to recovery I have my Mr. Milo Bear here to help me every single day, I couldn’t ask for more.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

Leanne Cody, Cardiff

Dear Leanne

Thank you for sending in your letter to Sixtyplusurfers. It sounds as if you’ve had such a difficult time, but we are so pleased to hear that you were able to get through it with the help of the kind man at the Job Centre, the support of your mother and your dear cat, Milo. 

He’s beautiful, and I can see that you have a very special relationship. I’m so glad he’s helped you get through the hard times and given you comfort, love and affection. 

Hugs from everyone at Sixtyplusurfers. Timmy (the Sixtyplusurfers cat) sends you his love too. 

We are delighted to tell you that you are the winner of the Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Bundle of STABILO Stationery.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

My local WI and I have just returned for a great break in Jersey.  

We flew from East Midlands and spent four days at the Merton Hotel. The hotel had delicious food and a great Aquadrome. We enjoyed exploring the island, shopping and spending time with friends.

Bridget Johnson, Whiston 

Dear Bridget

Thank you for sending in your fabulous photograph.

It looks like you had a great time at the Merton Hotel in Jersey with your friends from the WI.

We’d love to hear from other readers who have had recent holidays or outings with their clubs or social groups.

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

Like most people I am shocked by the amount of plastic that is found in our oceans. Shocked but not surprised. Some people think nothing of throwing their empty plastic bottles on to the ground or out of their car windows. It’s absolutely disgusting.

After picking up a plastic bottle the other day, which was lying in the grass, I decided to do my bit for the environment. Each day when out walking the dog, if I see a piece of plastic on the ground I pick it up and take it home for recycling. Just one piece. No more. (Unless I feel inclined to pick up any more).

No matter how big or small it is I take it home. What goes through my mind is “That’s another piece of plastic that won’t find its way into our oceans”. If everybody did the same there will be a lot of pieces of plastic that won’t find their way into the oceans.

I’m not suggesting that everybody should pick up all litter in the street. Just do their bit. We shouldn’t have to do this but we live in a throwaway society so, no matter how small, every little helps. 

I hope other readers think the same and do their bit for the environment.

Stuart Cooper, Staffordshire 

Dear Stuart

It’s terrible that you are seeing so much litter while you are out walking your dog. 

That’s a wonderful thing you are doing, collecting one piece of litter or more on your days out and taking it home for recycling. 

I hope your letter will encourage other readers to do the same thing while they are out and about. And others will think more carefully before throwing their litter in the countryside and destroying its appearance and our environment.
