I'm Edel, the face behind Mostly Mum. I am mum to three adorable (well, at least most of the time!) little ones, Alizée (10), Elodie (6) and Caleb (10 months). Many, many moons ago (yes, I'm an ancient Generation Xer!), I studied French and German at university in Ireland and even went all the way to completing a PhD on the French translations of Grimms' "Red Riding Hood". Rather than committing to an academic career, I dabbled in fashion PR in Paris before finding my way into magazine journalism in London. But once my eldest was born, I couldn't bring myself to send her to a nursery while I traipsed into my city job. So - somewhat reluctantly - I gave up an exciting career to become a full-time mum while softening the blow to my professional ego with the promise to myself (fingers firmly crossed behind my back) that I would "go freelance"... Two more beautiful babies later and I still haven't found the time (or... ahem... courage) to "go freelance" but I have finally started this blog so, maybe just maybe, all is not lost...
