Looking good?

Thanks to Sharon Boothroyd and Jacqui Cooper for letting me know about this competition from Carers UK. You can enter up to two poems and one story on the theme of ‘keeping well, keeping connected’.

The top prize in each category is £100 of High Street vouchers and £125 of Specsaver's vouchers. I couldn't see anything stating entrants must be from the UK, but the prize won't be much good to you if you're not.

I used to be told my best look was 'three miles away in thick fog', which I feel was harsh. I reckon I can easily get away with 'at a distance with a lovely beach to detract attention'.

Hi Patsy ... you look pretty good here having a lovely cooling wander in the gentle waves ... the prize doesn't look bad either - cheers Hilary

Good competition and walking through slightly chilled water would be good too.

I think it is only one story but two poems, Patsy and anyone else thinking of entering. This is from the email I had...
Entry is free and you can submit one story of up to 1,000 words or two poems of up to 40 lines. The theme is ‘keeping healthy and connected’ but you can submit entries on any aspect of caring.

It would be useful, I'm sure, Hilary.

Very refreshing, Carol.

You're right, Alyson – I'll update the post. (I was confused as the entry page seems to allow four documents to be uploaded, but clearly I didn't read everything properly. Can we blame the heat?)

That's why you spotted it and I didn't! Maybe ...
