Let The Games Begin!

Hi Friends!

To celebrate the first of September, when the UK starts to turn a rainbow of burnt oranges, dusty reds and brilliant yellows, I have decided to do a giveaway!!

A few years ago a friend of mine bought her parents a book for Christmas, and it sparked my interest in getting out and seeing the world. The book was written by the Rough Guides people (who else, huh?) and is called Ultimate Adventures. It documents the best places to go through the year; what to see and do and when is best to visit, and I LOVE IT!!!

So of course I want to give one of you lovely people the chance to love it too. It will get your feet itching to be dunked in the ocean in a far-flung place, or even to do something that you wouldn’t normally. Either way its a great read, and one you all will love.

So here’s what to do.

1) Subscribe to my blog if you haven’t already. Not only will you be part of the way to entering, but you will get regular rays of sunshine blowing into your inbox/reader, in the form of me. Who wouldn’t want that?

2) Follow me on Twitter (@toesfullofsand). Its fun and all the cool kids are doing it (I gather!!)

3) Tweet me with the hashtag #toesfullofsandcomp so that I know you are playing the game and can say thank you personally.

And we’re off!!

I’m going to run this for two weeks, so it will close on the morning of the 19th September (poetic weeks, I’m giving y’all a bit longer!) and then I’m going to put all the names in a hat and get a colleague to pull someone at random. Do you think Hogwarts will give me the Sorting Hat to wear for it? It will give me an elevated sense of importance 🙂 then I’ll mail you the book, and I apologise now if the lust for travel wears off on you!!

I’m also going to be setting up a Facebook page so watch this space!!

Happy playing, let the games begin!!

  1. Yay you. Great blog and what a great treat for someone, such a great gesture. I expect my wife will subscribe and participate so I won’t unfairly increase our chances, thanks for dropping by my occasional blog. Richard

  2. Yay! This sounds like fun. 🙂

  3. Sounds great! But… how do you subscribe to your blog? I hit “follow” on the wordpress toolbar, but I’m not sure if that’s all I need to do or not. Thanks!!
