I’m starting to think about packing for our upcoming holiday, so I “deconstructed” one of my outfits.

Don’t be in such a hurry to die!

Dear Fellow Road User,

I’m more than happy to share the road with you and your push bike … as long as you obey the road rules too.

But when you come flying round the corner on the wrong side of the road and without a helmet, don’t look so surprised when I give you a filthy look. You’re lucky you didn’t get a ride in an ambulance … or a hearse. On most other days I’d have already been all the way over to the left ready to turn the corner and you’d have become my new bonnet emblem.

Don’t be in such a hurry to die.
