Start of a new week of staying at home and looking after yourselves.
Not as many movies on TV today but the rumours are that the TV companies, as they lose their popular shows due to lack of audiences, are going to add movies to their schedule (BBC2 are adding classic British comedies to their afternoon list from next week)
Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Monday!
