Talk us through your average day… I go to work in the morning to me lovely chambermaiding job til about 1.30pm, then go home and have some lunch before heading down to the beach for a surf. Afterwards I’ll chill out, sun bathe and drink tea. Then if the waves are still looking good I’ll have another surf or maybe go out for a bike ride. Finally, I’ll head home for dinner and chill out with my boyfriend watching Eastenders and Big Brother!
