Dear ‘Don’t Drink and Drive’ motorway signs, On my many drives up to and back from Scotland I have often seen this instruction displayed on the electronic boards above the motorway, along with helpful advice about wearing seatbelts and checking tyre pressures. I am not sure whether you mean I should not be drinking from a water bottle/coffee cup etc while I am behind the wheel and moving along, or whether you mean that I should not have an alcoholic drink before driving. Perhaps you could be clearer – maybe an illustration of some kind would help me.
Dear traffic cones, It was nice to see relatively few of you on my most recent long journey. Of course I suppose that means that poor motorists in other parts of the country must be suffering.
Dear laundry, I’ve done enough – please stop breeding in the wash basket.
Dear brain, Please will you switch off at night – well, maybe not from the essential tasks like breathing and so on, but the whirling confusion of all the things you find to think about when I really should be sleeping.
Dear jet trails in the sky, I’m sure I read somewhere that you are classed as clouds, which surprised me. You were looking good the other day when I went for a late afternoon walk in the park.
Have a good Friday everyone.
