PANIC! Snow Might Hit UK! Should've Stocked That Apocalypse Larder!

I have a confession. I'm prone to a bit of panic. With all the weather reports telling us that the Beast from the East is gonna hit the UK with masses of snow, (isn't it coming from the west?!) I like to be prepared. I even get a little bit excited! So thank goodness we managed to get the extension and kitchen fitted just in time for weather chaos!

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?

How Tom Hardy Trained To Become Bronson

Well, it's a NewYear and like everyone else, I'm trying to train away all that Christmas flab (way too much cheese and chocolate). I'm not a gym bunny - never have been and never will - but according to all my friends who are, you cannot get near for all those who have made New Year Resolutions. Maybe February would be a better month to start at the gym.

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).
