We are finally over the Christmas craziness, and to be honest, we’re wrecked! All we want to do is pop on our favourite onesie (shout out to Auntie Mary for the Christmas pressie!), drink copious amounts of tea and snuggle up in front of the tv for the foreseeable future.
However, we know your poor post-Christmas brains have taken a battering and may not be up to making the all-important decision of what to watch. Let’s face it, there is far too much choice for us delicate flowers – but do not fear! We have rounded up our top tv picks for staying in this January, which are all available on Vodafone TV.
