Every now and then, it's worth just stopping in the day to read a fairy tale. This morning, I began re-reading a version of Sleeping Beauty from Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book. I'd forgotten all about the good fairy and her seven league boots, borrowed from a friendly dwarf, and the princess's lovely dreams as she slept. Don't you wonder what she was dreaming?

Although, the fact the princess and prince called their children Morning and Day puts into perspective some of the more recent, odder names for celebrity children!
