Morning!

Are you alert? I hope so because that is what we are all supposed to be from now on. England wakes up this morning a very confusing place, which can only mean one thing…disaster! So the best advice is to stay home and watch a movie or two on your telly box. (Plus it’s far too chilly to go out).

Stay safe, stay inside (if you can) and Happy Monday!
