TV and Streaming – Thursday 4th June 2020

Morning!

It’s Thursday again. No more clapping for those in the frontline but I think we still should. We can kneel for those in America too. We are living in a world gone mad at the moment so we should be defiant those who are feeding us false information, lying and leading us into deeper and darker trouble.

Sorry to get all political but so much is causing me anxiety at the moment, I needed to share. I still will give you the best recommendations on TV in order to take our minds away from the madness.

Stay safe, look after yourself and Happy Thursday!
