TV and Streaming – Saturday 11th April 2020

Morning!

It’s a glorious Saturday (I know, I’ve walked the dog already) but that doesn’t mean we can break the rules and go sunbathing in the park or, as one person did yesterday, do yoga and then complain as she was told to go home by the police. Please stay at home. This thing won’t go away unless we abide by the rules! But I am talking to those who respect the rules.

So if you’re not going to sit in the garden, then plenty of movies on TV today. So maybe enjoy half and half. You don’t want to get sunburnt!

Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Saturday!
