London was buzzing last night. Warm. balmy evening - lots of people out and about - everybody in a sunny mood. It was our first night out in the West End since before Christmas - no point when everything was closed - and it felt quite exciting seeing the city lights again and just being out! In the Heights turned out to be a perfect summer movie. It's no West Side Story - the storyline is feeble - and to be honest, it's a good half hour too long: our interest was flagging by the end. But we wanted something lively and colourful and energetic and it hit the spot. How do you juggle popcorn, mask and a beer though????

It makes you realise the difference other human beings have on our lives when we mingle and socialise more freely; having been stuck indoors with family members for months on end. I still find people who dash away (in an exaggerated show of social distancing) from me, pretty shocking,though!

Apart from one friend - who I'm not expecting to emerge in public until 2025 at the soonest! - happily, I don't know anyone like that, Vronni. All taking a robust approach, at least since the first couple of weeks of mild panic.
