Adam Buxton writes...

Welcome to the second part of my epic four-part journey of self-absorption as I try to survive...alone in the shed. After a wonderful first few hours during which time I ate some extraordinary tortilla chips, drank some extraordinary beer and read some extraordinary magazines about Jazz (the article on Spatz McSwazz and the pioneers of Swingbop was particularly arousing), things started to get tough.

For a start I ran out of beer. Being a responsible family man, my consumption of alcohol is for the most part moderate bordering on the abstemious, but in the shed different rules apply: when one has beer, the shed is an exciting environment, full of marvellous boxes, bags and bike parts.

But when the beer runs out, it's vital that supplies are replenished immediately or it can quickly become cold, unforgiving and even boring. However as you will see, a re-up from the house beer stash can be a dangerous business...

More from Adam next week. Alone in the Shed was previously shown as part of 2009 Unwrapped with Miranda Hart.
