Handy Tips

If you haven’t got a watering can just make one out of a milk container then punch holes in the lid to make the sprinkler.

Crayon on your wall?  No problem. Just use an old toothbrush and some toothpaste. It will vanish in no time.

Look under your vacuum cleaner head and you’ll see hundreds of hairs wrapped around the roller. With scissors, start to cut through the hair.

Now you can extract it easily to leave the vacuum head hair-free.

Jane Whitaker, Kent 

Dear Jane

Thank you for sharing your handy tips. Those are excellent ideas.

The milk container watering can is also a great way to recycle containers and look after your garden at the same time.

We’d love to hear from other readers with handy tips.

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

Whilst in work my husband rang complaining he could find nothing in to make a snack with. Holding my temper I quietly pointed out there was a fresh block of cheese from Sainsbury’s and to use that. 

Returning home I was greeted with complaints about the quality of the cheese which he described as rancid.  Puzzled I went to check myself to find the strong Cheddar unopened and the fresh Parmesan hacked to death.

Yes, you’ve got it in one, he had used my lovely fresh Parmesan and sliced onion on a sandwich instead of the Cheddar – hardly surprising from a man who has yet to learn how to use can opener!

Maggi Dignam, Manchester

Dear Maggi

That’s a funny story. You’ll have to take your hubby to some cookery classes.

Or why not try some of our delicious recipes on the Food & Drink page.

Good luck! In the meantime, send your hubby off to Sainsbury’s to buy some more Parmesan!

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I love the scent of red roses, so a few years ago I bought a little rose bush and planted it in my front garden.

Now I can enjoy watching my lovely roses grow and savour their gorgeous scent every day.

Every time I go for a walk and come back, I can admire my roses and enjoy their beauty.

I hope you like my picture.

Julia Lambert, London

Dear Julia

Thank you sharing your beautiful picture.

I love the scent of roses too. We’d love to see photographs of other flowers and produce that readers are growing in their gardens.

Win a Holiday with Camping in the Forest

Enter our travel competition for the chance to win a weekend away worth £150 this summer with Camping in the Forest.

In a recent survey* carried out by holiday expert, Camping in the Forest, figures revealed 74% of the UK’s over 60’s think getting fresh air is the best thing to do to keep them both physically and mentally healthy.

About Camping in the Forest

Camping in the Forest offers a collection of 15 beautiful caravan and camping sites set among the woodlands of the Forestry Commission. Sites can be found in the New Forest, the Forest of Dean, Wiltshire and Scotland.

Camping in the Forest is passionate about creating unique and memorable holiday experiences for all customers. The venture is a partnership between the Forestry Commission and The Camping and Caravanning Club.

Camping in the Forest’s caravan and camping sites leave most of the ground untouched, which means they remain a friendly environment for birds, animals and plants, giving guests the opportunity to share their holiday locations with both flora and fauna.

There are also recycling schemes in place at all campsites that mean any waste produced by visitors is dealt with in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Star Letter Winner!

 Our Star Letter 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

This is Freckle, one of my four beautiful fur babies, being a typical male and hogging the TV remote control.

Freckle is very special as he was a feral kitten who lived wild in the woods at the top of my garden for the first two years of his life. He used to cry outside my window but was very nervous and would sneak in through the cat flap for a feed.

Eventually he got a little more brave and would approach me in the house but would then run away again. But he used to spray in the house so I decided I would get him neutered in the hope that it would maybe stop him spraying and also stop him wandering.

He always used to be so filthy, covered in black dust as I think he used to sleep under cars. After I got him neutered he seemed to come more often but still wouldn’t really venture far past the kitchen until two months after being neutered he suddenly ran across the lounge and jumped onto my knee where he stayed for hours.

After that he became a real Mummy’s boy and has now been living in the house for almost two years and rarely leaves my arms. He is still very nervous of other people and whenever I have visitors he runs away and hides inside the sofa bed until they’ve gone.

It’s taken him six months to get used to my reflexologist coming and I was so proud of him when he jumped on my knee while she was treating me a couple of weeks ago and he actually pushed his head against her hand last week.

He gets on really well with my other three cats, especially his beloved girlfriend, Princess, who he adores. Although he does torment her a lot of the time when he wants to play but she just wants to snuggle.

Liz Denial, Nottingham

Dear Liz

Thank you for telling us about Freckle and sending in your photograph, he’s adorable.

It’s lovely to hear how you rescued him and gave him a loving and caring home.

We’ve also featured Freckle as our ‘Super Star Pet’ on the Pet Care page this month.

We are delighted to tell you that you are the winner of the Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Personalised Red Wine and Goblet Set from

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

My Gripes of Wrath whilst out driving. (In no particular order)

1)  Drivers in a queue of traffic who leave a 50 yard gap between them and the car in front of them.

2)  Drivers who park on double yellow lines and do their shopping. The oldies are the worst.

3)  Drivers who park behind or in front of you, two inches away from you, blocking you in.

4)  Drivers who park along side you blocking you in.

5)  Drivers who drive with music blasting out making sure that you have to listen to it. Even if you are a Val Doonican fan.

6)  Drivers who park next to an airline at a garage and spend half an hour shopping in the garage shop.

7)  Drivers who drive at 25 mph in a 30 mph speed limit and then at 30 mph when the speed limit changes to 40 mph.

8)  Drivers who are driving in the inside lane of three lanes then dash across to the third lane to turn right.

9)  Drivers who overtake you at speed as you are approaching a left turn then nip in front of you so they can turn left. Can’t they just wait a few seconds? (Apparently not).

10) Pedestrians who cross the road without looking to see what’s coming. Their attitude is “You can see me. Slow down!”

11) Pedestrians who think it is their god given right to cross on a zebra crossing without looking to see what is coming. Their attitude. See above.

By the way. I am 69 and have seen some selfish drivers on the roads in my time. And a lot of them are my age. Male and female!

Stuart Cooper, Staffordshire

Dear Stuart

Thank you for sending in your driving ‘Gripes of Wrath’.

I thoroughly agree, I do wish there would be more considerate drivers and pedestrians to make our journeys more pleasant.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

I wanted to share with you my smiley dog Jack.

Some people think he looks a bit fierce but this is the face he pulls when he sees people he likes. He is so funny.

Keep up the fab work.

Dear Ellen

Thank you for sending in your picture of Jack. He’s so cute. I can see he is lots of fun and friendly.

We’d love to see pictures of other readers’ pets.

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

This is the first time I’ve seen your fab website so I thought I’d tell you a bit about myself.

I’m 62 years young and have a successful pig farm in Northern Ireland that keeps me busy and very active and I have two huge wind turbines to do my little bit to help reduce the carbon footprint.

Also, next year when I’m 63, I’m whisking my fiancée away to Italy to marry her

60 is definitely the next 40!

Liam McGuckian

Dear Liam

We wish you a warm welcome to Sixtyplusurfers. Thank you for telling us about yourself and your pig farm in Northern Ireland. How wonderful that you have two wind turbines to reduce your carbon footprint. We’d love to see some photographs of you on your farm.

Congratulations on your engagement, how romantic to marry your lucky fiancée in Italy! We wish you all the very best together. Do keep us updated. Life definitely begins at 60!

Readers' Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

Your Life … A Poem

Each day we are given is a gift,
And a gift we always should appreciate.
When days start to run together,
It’s then that our days depreciate.

So try to slow and take each day,
Only one at a time.
Life will always have its ups and downs,
But the ups are more fun to climb.

Every morning you awake accomplishing something,
Should be on your mind.
So choose your thought for the day,
And do it and then unwind.

If every day you have a goal,
And every day it gets done.
Life will never run away,
And life will be much more fun.

Claire Glace, Weymouth

Dear Claire

Thank you for sending your excellent poem. Those are great words of wisdom.

It’s definitely a good idea to take each day at a time, accomplish your goals one by one, and then unwind.

The Sunrise Clock gradually fills your room with light 0-60 minutes before alarm time, mimicking sunrise bursting through your blinds.

At alarm time choose between ten different sounds, from birdsong to the sound of the ocean, or if you think you need a bit more of a nudge to get out of bed, the clock features several standard alarm rings.
