Use Your Loaf
Dom tells us how sprucing up the boxes that your classic toys came in can be as simple as using your loaf
Collecting may not be a particularly strenuous hobby, where one has to keep oneself in the pique of physical condition (that, by the way, is no problem for me, as I have the body of Adonis – although when he sees what I’ve done with it he’ll be livid!), but it is a hobby where certain dietary choices can pay real dividends.
