I have no affinity for football whatsoever so when The English Game popped up Netflix I wasn't remotely interested. I learnt it's also developed by Julian Fellows, creator of Downton Abbey and Belgravia, so I had to give it a go. By the first episode I was hooked and watched the season split on two days. It revolves around the origin of football and the class divide between the Etonians and the mill factory workers and delves in the life of leading footballers Aurthur Kinnaird and Fergus Suter. The social issues echo the challenges that were also present in Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North and South, set a few decades earlier on. I highly recommend it if you enjoy period dramas.
Some time ago I was browsing Barnes and Noble and came across their edition of The Secret Garden. I remember enjoying this book when I was a kid and have fond memories of it, so I picked up this beautiful edition to read once again and later learnt that a new movie adaption is set to be released on the 17th April. I'm loving the comfort of being able to stream new releases immediately at home.
On another note, Food Wishes, one of my favourite chefs on YouTube has released a video of baked rice and beans that's ideal during these times as it utilises minimum pantry staples and tastes good.
Enjoy your weekend!
