Diana,  sorry to hear you haven't been feeling great, hope you're much better by the time you read this. Certainly worrying news from the US, hard to believe that people are behaving in such a way in the midst of a pandemic when there are so many deaths and illnesses.

Just to digress ,if anyone is interested  the original “ The Black Narcissus “
With David Farrar , Deborah Kerr and Sabu is on BBC 2 tomorrow, Saturday at 1-15.
Should be an interesting comparison for those who watched the new one.
Cheerio folks,I will be in touch tomorrow.
Viktoria.

I spotted that Viktoria, don't think I'll be watching, I'm all Narcissus-ed out!
Hope you are well  :)

Yes !thanks Roobarb ,hope you and our other diarists are too and indeed everyone.
Nothing much to report , really .
Been phoning friends re New Year’s wishes.
It takes time as often not had a chat for ages.
Too icy to go out unfortunately ,but getting on with things.
Son coming today, a document signed by our local Council Leader ,has to be sent to Brussels,re my Belgian Pension, to prove I am still alive!
He wii post it by air mail ,recorded etc.
Did you see the filming of the queues of people waiting for their vaccines ?
I could not believe it, all bunched together,no distancing at all!
It must not have crossed people’s minds they could get Covid 19 even when a short time away from the vaccination.
No marshalling or control,but given the ages being prioritised to have those numbers  queuing in this cold weather could be a death sentence for some!

Well the Trump saga goes on ,what a despicable man, the erstwhile leader of one of the biggest “ democracies” which given some of the attitudes that pertain still ,especially in the Deep South, is questionable.
America is the laughing stock now , among many will be  China,Russia,North Korea , !

A dull but crisp morning .
I am all snug ,just had a milky coffee , does anyone remember  the  “ Lait Russe “ at the Kardomah.? Oh I did like them -
both the drinks and the cafes.
Wish we had them now ,forget all the fancy Lattianos and Moccachitoes etc .
We thought they were posh, cheese on toast there was something else.
And the Milk Bars, they were nice too, often with a Juke box ,and the Temperance Bars.
Well, awaiting son who will also bring some onions, I have only a few  and 
have not yet done the braising steak in the slow cooker .

A report on the radio of another very elderly person being sold for £100 her vaccination at home! 90+ why has she not yet had it?
Whatever she was injected with it is a worry, let’s hope it was just water .
It seems very odd that at some surgeries and centres low 80 ‘s have already had it but higher 80’s in other  areas have not yet!It is not always underlying conditions either.
Well I am sure everyone is doing their best but it was bad news I felt that people “ would not have to go further than TEN MILES ———?”
I hope I misunderstood.!
Keep safe everyone, I sense general despondency now , but I feel whilst we are not through the worst there is a tiny glimmer of light now.
Can’t  remember what Churchill said, “ This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end but it is —“- what comes next?
Cheerio , thanks for the posts , won’t we appreciate ordinary life after this,to tell the truth I did anyway ,but I will even more if I get through it all .
Cheerio, just think we haven’t got a blond Adonis like Donald T, and  Boris
might not have full control of his hair but the measures taken have been more than anything we have ever seen ,to give some help etc.
Will we be in austerity measures when we are on top of this  ?
If so it could  be a good thing , the lifestyles of some are ridiculous .
Pontificating over!
Viktoria.

Viktoria- lovely to read your memories and cheerfulness...
The quote is this:-
This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning .....

Keep safe and warm and keep on doing what you have been which is working well for you.... times will return when those FH hugs will be felt again I’m sure...
