"Many a true word has been spoken in jest".

I was feeling very inadequate when I read that Shakespeare is said to have written King Lear while in quarantine during the plague!

 The weight of this sad time we must obey,
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
The oldest hath borne most: we that are young
Shall never see so much, nor live so long.”
― William Shakespeare, King Lear

Scary how relevant these words are to our situation even today. Though I suppose that's what makes it a classic, it is timeless.

Anyway, it got me thinking. What have I been doing with my time in lockdown? What will be my legacy to this time long after it has passed?

So I set about creating something. I know I'm a bit late to the party but today, for the first time I made porridge bread. 

It was then that I thought of my other creation....Lil Covid. He will be my legacy when this is over, because take it from me, the porridge bread isn't gonna last very long. It's delicious!
