TV and Streaming – Saturday 1st August 2020

Morning!

It’s the first day of August and it seems like a lifetime since I started this daily blog. We all thought that lockdown was almost over but that doesn’t seem the case, so I will keep going for as long as I am needed. I get the feeling I’m going to be needed for a little while longer.

Stay safe, look after yourself and Happy Saturday!
