If you like surfing but live in the city, have a look at the Big Friday website - running surf trips from London to Cornwall most weekends of the summer season. And particularly pleasing to me, they also run competitions on a weekly basis - one of which I won last week. My goodie bag arrived at 7.50am on Tuesday morning - an excellent wake up and something to be cheerful about on my first day back to work after my own surfing trip. And the contents? Davidoff Cool Water Game perfume, shower gel and body lotion accompanied by a Ripcurl handbag. Neither is my usual style, but great to try something new (and free).
