Recently my children and I were swapping Dad Jokes. My eldest son sent an email ending with "I'd end this email with a Covid joke but it would take two weeks (Australians quarantine period) to see if you get it".

Loved this!

Anyone remember the poetress Pam Ayres? Well, she's 73 and still going strong.

This is her latest ode to coronavirus…

I'm normally a social girl
I love to meet my mates
But lately with the virus here

We can't go out the gates.
You see, we are the 'oldies' now
We need to stay inside

If they haven't seen us for a while
They'll think we've upped and died.
They'll never know the things we did

Before we got this old
There wasn't any Facebook
So not everything was told.

We may seem sweet old ladies
Who would never be uncouth
But we grew up in the 60s -

If you only knew the truth!
There was sex and drugs and rock 'n roll
The pill and miniskirts

We smoked, we drank, we partied
And were quite outrageous flirts.

Then we settled down, got married
And turned into someone's mum,
Somebody's wife, then nana,

Who on earth did we become?
We didn't mind the change of pace
Because our lives were full

But to bury us before we're dead
Is like a red rag to a bull!

So here you find me stuck inside
For four weeks, maybe more
I finally found myself again

Then I had to close the door!
It didn’t really bother me
I'd while away the hour

I'd bake for all the family
But I've got no flaming flour!

Now Netflix is just wonderful
I like a gutsy thriller
I'm swooning over Idris
Or some random sexy killer.

At least I've got a stash of booze
For when I'm being idle
There's wine and whiskey, even gin
If I'm feeling suicidal!

So let's all drink to lockdown

To recovery and health
And hope this awful virus
Doesn't decimate our wealth.

We'll all get through the crisis
And be back to join our mates

Just hoping I'm not far too wide
To fit through the flaming gates!

The end is nigh
