TV and Streaming – Monday 10th August 2020

Morning!

Just feel like closing myself off from the world today. The news banging on about schools needing to reopen, the things in Beirut and Simon Cowell’s back, yet not a single mention that yesterday, in the UK, new cases of Covid-19 went up to over 1000. The largest amount since June. I am sick and tired of the news agendas not telling us the real truth and stories that are incredibly important and being pushed under the rug.

I may just sit and watch movies all day. Why don’t you join me with today’s recommendations.

Stay safe, look after yourself and Happy Monday!
