TV series we have enjoyed watching during lockdown

The last three months have been challenging in many ways, but one thing we have enjoyed is getting to watch lots of great TV. We are big fans of binge watching series in a few days anyway, but we have had a real opportunity to watch more, although we still have a long list of things we want to see before everything returns to normal.

Keep the kids entertained with Amazon Prime this half term

Keeping the kids occupied during school holidays can be tricky, especially if the weather is miserable. Much as we love to be out and about battling whatever the weather throws at us, sometimes we just want to relax in front of the TV, watching a film whilst snuggled under a blanket with some popcorn.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping and Sales Tips
