Good Day for prayer, as Bianka Vucina, a seven-year-old Albanian girl, won nearly pounds 5,000 on a lottery after praying to Allah: "Please help me win `Telebingo'. I am with you and you are with me. Forgive me any mistakes."

Bad Day for banisters-sliding, as Diane Williams alleged unfair dismissal against her former employers after she fell and lost a tooth while sliding down banisters at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors last July. At the tribunal, her former boss said: "I took the view that anybody who climbed on to the banisters and slid down them would have to be extremely drunk or crazy", while the Personnel Manager added: "I would not expect somebody to sit on banisters and slide down in a professional body where members display a certain decorum."
