Fancy a movie night?
As the dark cloud of more level-5 restrictions looms over us for at least another month, Netflix is once again proving to be a godsend. Curling up in a blanket by the fire, as the snow covers the outside, with your favourite series distracting you from the frankly quite scary times we are living through… That’s some of the best self-care going.

But, since the extension of restrictions isn’t a new thing now, you might have binged through all your favourite comfort shows and movies, and be in need of something else to scratch that itch. Luckily for you, the overlords are being kind to us and adding a whole host of new titles to Netflix this February. Me? Well. I’m very tempted to watch The Queen’s Gambit all over again, but I guess I can hear these new additions out… It’s time to watch a bunch of movies we’ve never seen before!
