Famously Winging It

About the Clueless Mama

Hi, I’m Emma aka The Clueless Mama… or I was before I gave birth to my gorgeous baby girl, Lonje. I would like to think that I’m slightly more clue’d up nowadays but in reality, its just that I am winging Motherhood everyday, and that’s okay. I am Scottish and live with my partner, Tam who is from Malawi so our little baby is a mix of both cultures and she is the most perfect caramel colour. We also have a curious little Romanian rescue dog, Obie who is terrified of everything apart from fireworks.

I love everything about writing and designing and I am currently working on setting up my own web design and branding business.

I am on maternity leave and never want it to end, but alas, I must return to work in February 2019.

Enjoy my space on the internet and join our growing community.
