15 April

NEW DRAW TODAY! £10 in the draw! A lucky day in 1755 when Samuel Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language was published in London and, in 1802, William Wordsworth and his sister, Dorothy saw a "long belt" of daffodils, inspiring William to write I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud. In 1817, Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet and Laurent Clerc founded the American School for the Deaf, the first American school for deaf students, in Hartford, Connecticut and, in 1983, Tokyo Disneyland opened to the public.

Famous people born on this day include Leonardo da Vinci, Italian painter, sculptor, and architect, born 1452, Marty Wilde, English singer-songwriter and actor, born 1939, Emma Thompson, English actress and screenwriter, born 1959, and Emma Watson, English actress born 1990, to whom the day is dedicated to:

I thought, If people are going to write about what I'm wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity.

But it's a journey and the sad thing is you only learn from experience, so as much as someone can tell you things, you have to go out there and make your own mistakes in order to learn.

Have a lovely lucky day!
