Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bluebirds Fly was conceived in April 2018. The previous ten years felt like being hit by a tornado, but somehow the twister had landed me, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow,' when I got the opportunity to rent a fairy tale, thatched cottage by the sea, in the picturesque village of Dunmore East, where I am lucky to still reside today & where I am learning day by day, to live a different way of life,  letting my ‘troubles melt like lemon drops & appreciateing every little bluebird of happiness that comes my way. Wishing you bluebirds of happiness your way : ) Sophie X
