Who Is Truly Madly Cuckoo?

Truly Madly Cuckoo is run by myself, Collette; A mum of four living in a small market town in North Yorkshire. I started writing the blog back in 2009 as a place to document the lives of my family. Roll on to 2022 and I now have four children aged 20 years, 17 years and 10 year old twins – never saw that coming!


I am loving the challenges of being a mum to twins, although it hasn’t been easy, particularly in the early days. I’m still learning how to juggle four children (not literally) in order to keep everyone happy and maintain my sanity! In fact the name Truly Madly Cuckoo arose from this battle.

As a family you’ll often find us exploring the delights of North Yorkshire, which is a beautiful county. More often and not these days my teenage son’s will be off exploring the world independently, which brings it’s own challenges . Who said bringing up children gets easier with age?!


I work from home as a freelance writer and blogger, which I love. I am also partial to writing fiction on occasions and have had a couple of short stories published. One day I’ll get started on that novel …

If you would like us to work together, ask a question or simply get in touch, my email address is trulymadlycuckoo@gmail.com – I look forward to hearing from you.
