Fairy Day Is Here!
Fairy Day is a day for celebrating an enchanted world of wonder.
Fairies in the garden. Little homes under toadstools. Magic Fairy Dust that can brighten the dullest of days.
If you are the parent of a young, possibly precocious lady, then today is the day to embrace your inner child and get your star tipped wand out.
Have some fun with your child and let your imagination run wild. You will feel all the better for it.
On more serious note
Today is also the anniversary of the day in 1982 when a British Airways flight ran into serious difficulty.
The Boeing 747 had all four engines fail at the same time. A total flame-out.
The plane had flown straight into a cloud of volcanic ash thrown up by Mount Galunggung near Indonesia.
One clear of the ash cloud, no doubt after scaring everyone on board, the pilot managed to get the engines re-started and the flight landed safely in Jakarta.
This was also the date when in 1901, Pablo Picasso opened his first ever exhibition in Paris.
