Or at least an attempt to do so anyway!
Hello and welcome to The Cuckoo Mama! I’m Caro, mama to Sam and Pepper pup, and wife to Hugh. I’m a stay at home mama, IVF warrior, ruler of the household and, like to think, all round good egg!
I’ve always had a love of writing, beginning with childhood, typewriter written tomes about ‘Jane of Lilac Grove’, and culminating in a journalism degree. For me, it was always about the column pieces; having the freedom to write from my point of view about whatever it was I wanted to. Obviously, in the early 2000s, when the internet was new and slow and actually had a dial tone to connect, blogging wasn’t even a twinkle in my eye and I knew that, in all likelihood, I’d never be a columnist! Therefore, upon graduating, I decided not to pursue a journalistic career but, rather, ended up in Private Equity, via teacher training. Yes, that obvious route! Finally, in May 2017, after being at home for almost a year, I took the plunge, got over my technophobia, and did something very much for me; I returned to my writing roots and The Cuckoo Mama was born! Where it’s going to go and what I’m going to write about is anyone’s guess! But please do join me on my journey to the unknown!
And so I welcome you to my blog, where it’s all just beginning!
Here’s to all the adventures ahead!
