I'm not overly keen on the London Underground at the best of times. You feel the rush of warm air in your face as you descend into the lair of the tube train. The people who avoid all eye contact with any one just in case they turn out to be super weird.
Although thinking back to London during the World War II, the Underground system must have been a perfect place to shelter away from Hitler's bombs. It can't have been pleasant, but better than being in the street without shelter. But what if there was something else in the tunnels with you?
You can now experience what it would be like to be stuck in the London Underground sheltering away from the terror of the London Blitz in 1940, only to find out there could be a bigger terror lurking in the depths of the tunnels with you. How would you deal with the undead in the claustrophobic tunnels of the Underground? Well wonder no more, because you can experience Zombie Blitz 1940 with Wish.co.uk

Sounds contrary but then the why is more understandable than you might think.
The big problem with being trapped in it car is that the electrics can fail at any given time. With most newer car models being all electric, you can easily find yourself trapped in a car you thought was a safe place to be!
If the electrics go, or the battery dies, then your main means of escape - the windows and sun roof - become shut tight! And before you can muster enough swear words to compensate, you're trapped inside a big metal box.
So in case of flooding- if you find yourself trapped in a car, open the windows (at least 6 inches to give you chance to push them open) so that you can get out alive and well should you need to!
And don't forget a spare pair of Wellington boots just in case.

Since we've fitted our kitchen, I must say I do like my tall larder cupboards. Even at 3am when I was fitting all the drawers in time for Christmas, I was like a giddy school girl. "I can pull the drawer out and see all my baking products! Ha ha!" Very sad. Although you have to give me some credit as I had been cooking in a little space in the utility room on a camping stove for five months.
So hearing the news of thick, thick snow arriving on our shores, surely this is the perfect time to test out my new, aptly named Apocalypse Larder. I hit the shops yesterday and stocked up on the essentials (it was a lot busier than usual too) just in case we can't leave the house for a day or two. We wouldn't want to starve now would we?!
I've got plenty of flour and yeast to bake lots of bread. I've also been stocking up on four packs of tinned plum tomatoes when they are half price, cos you can never have enough tomatoes can you? Anyway, it's full as you can see. I think we might survive this snow.
Now I'm waiting. There's some old snow on the ground, but no blizzards yet. I can even still open the front door.
How do you prepare? Or do you just ride it out?

So I've been back to bootcamp. But this time - it's very, very cold. We've been working hard. Lots of reps of all the old favourites like press-ups, squats, lunges, burpees (hate them), sit-ups - you know the kind of thing. We also do a lot of kettlebell work and bicep curls with dumb bells. Now being a lady, I'm beginning to worry that I'm starting to Hulk-out a bit. My shoulders are big enough as they are, but they are getting even bigger!
I was watching Lawless yesterday and started to think I was beginning to look like I had Tom Hardy's shoulders!
So, this is a insight into how Tom Hardy gained three stone (42lbs) in muscle for his role in Bronson. No gym required, as they based all the training on the fact that Charles Bronson was in solitary confinement for most of his prison sentence. If you want big and bulk, this one could be for you.
I think I will forget this January beach body workout, I want to look like a psychopath! Now that would scare a zombie off for sure (or I could just pull its head off).

So, last Tuesday I was declared fit to start exercising again - 12 weeks after my operation. And I'm not one to give up easily, so off I went to bootcamp again to get my fitness back up to scratch. And it's like starting all over again (I have eaten quite a lot of cookies).
But you don't need much more motivation than the reports coming from Miami about the flesh eating dude that was shot, then shot some more to stop him in his hungry ways. Is this the start of the zombie apocalypse? Whatever it is, it's making me a little nervous. Should I start buying slightly more food to stock up - just in case? Should we start sharpening our tools and fortifying the house? I do know that I need to run a bit faster and strengthen those flabby arms to the point where I become a neck snapping power house.
Whatever happens, it would be somewhat embarrassing if those dead zombies do start wandering the earth, I'd have to answer my own blogging question: Am I Zombie Fit? No. Very embarrassing indeed. Better to be safe than sorry.
Can zombies type?
There's some crazy stuff going on at the moment. Not only has Miami had its first flesh-eating episode, other strange stuff has been going off too. Check out this post from Dread Central:
Have you heard any crazy or weird stuff recently? We need to keep up with these reports so we can be prepared! Remember: don't become zombie fodder!
