I am so excited to announce that Somewhere After the Rainbow are going to be Brand Ambassadors for the wonderful Child’s Farm. Childs Farm are an award winning brand, established here in the U.K, which make baby and children’s toiletries.

Every year the kids put their request in for carving the pumpkin – it is Daddy’s specialty. Over the years we’ve had everything from Mickey Mouse, to black cats. This year was Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas!   We had my best friends daughters first birthday party on the Sunday, the day before Halloween – she is a Halloween baby, so the kids got to dress up two days in a row.

We are so very lucky to live 10 minutes away from Westonbirt, The National Arboretum. Having a springer spaniel that loves to walk, and three kids that love to wander, ‘the trees’ (as it is known in our house) is the perfect place for them to do just that. We are members of The Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum, which we pay a yearly fee for, and with our joint membership, the kids get to enter for free. We get very good value for money from our pass, which we use several times a month. There is a cafe, shop and…
