Week 1 of our Covid 19 Diaries - How We're Doing.

Week 1 of our Covid 19 Diaries - How We're Doing.

So, a lot has changed here in a week but I'm guessing it's pretty much the same for everyone. Last week I was working away as normal in my retail shop listening to the news of what was happening all around the world. News of the Covid 19 Virus was spreading fast and we were all starting to get very worried. Within days of the news we were reading, my children's schools were closed down and shortly after that, just one day, so was my place of work. When I went to into work on Friday morning, I had no idea that would be the last shift I'd be working for a while. It's all quite sad really but I completely understand why it has to be so and now that the Government are helping us and paying 80% of our wages, I can relax a little and not worry so much about all the bills and other money matters in my life.

Over the weekend, I spent a lot of time talking to my children and helping them to understand what was going on and what was going to happen from now on. They were happy to know that I was going to be staying at home with them so that was a huge relief. I'm no teacher but I am going to help them do a little bit of work each day. There won't be no fancy routines or major schooling plans to stick to here, I don't work well like that at all.

We're going for a more relaxed timetable of work, play, eat and relax. It's going to be a tough few months so I don't want to put too much pressure on them or myself for that fact. I can see so many of my friends sharing pictures of the work their kids are doing at home which tends to make me feel a little uneasy but I won't be trying to compete with any one. Our lives are ours and we'll be doing things our way. We don't need to do what you're all doing.

By Sunday, I had settled down and was actually starting to look forward to spending some time with my children over the next few weeks until Daddy got a phone call to say that someone he's been working with at his workplace has just been diagnosed with the Covid 19 Virus. I was a mess,I had gone right back to square one all in a single moment of time.

Daddy is well at the moment and is still going to work as he's not showing any signs or symptoms of the Virus himself but I am very worried. He's not been in direct contact with the person but he has worked in the same building and he has had direct contact with others who've been in direct contact with him so life's a little worrying for all of us right now.

We're going to continue to monitor Daddy's temperature and keep any eye on him but for now we're all keeping our distance as much as we can, and staying indoors, just incase. 

Today is the first Day of our homeschooling journey and all is well so far. The kids have got up and started some work whilst I've been completing some tasks on the laptop. They're having regular breaks and will be going outside in the garden real soon to get some fresh air and exercise - also known as their PE lesson. It's not going to be easy over the next few weeks so our main thing is fun, we're going to try and have lots of fun together whilst we can. Life can get stressful if you let it so we're not going to let that happen to us here.

For now, we are all well and enjoying our time at home together. That might chance in the near future so I'm going to try and keep everyone updated once a week if I can.

Stay Safe and Stay well 

Choosing the Final Touches to my Wedding Cake with norma&dorothy #Review

Choosing the Final Touches to my 
Wedding Cake  with norma&dorothy.

Who are they? norma&dorothy love to make handcrafted wedding stationery.

Founded by Grace Sherriff in 2013, in just a few short years their wedding stationery company has grown from humble beginnings to a respected and thriving business, with a dedicated team of staff and happy customers all across the globe and they're not stopping there. They spend each day designing pretty things and handcrafting beautiful wedding stationery for their customers. There’s also the occasional break for tea and cake!

Recently I've been thinking about what I wanted to put on the top of my Wedding cake so when I heard about norma&dorothy, I just had to take a look at what they had for me. I'm having quite a simply cake so I wanted something simple, yet pretty, to place on the top. 

norma&dorothy have so many beautiful Wedding Cake Toppers to choose from that even I struggled to choose just one. Luckily for me, I didn't have to, just yet as they let me choose two so that I could make my all important choice later on. It's going to be a tough choice.

I chose a personalised topper and a more simple one too.

My Personalised choice is their beautiful Gold Mirror Wedding Cake Topper which has been personalised with our marriage name and our wedding date. It's so pretty, I love it. Cake It's made from a 3mm acrylic mirror and measures 12.7cm at the widest point and the stem is approximately 13 cm long. This cake topper costs £24 which is one of the more expensive ones on the ste but it's definitely my favourite and well worth every penny of that money.

My second choice was their Forever Mirror Wedding Cake Topper which is my simple choice. The word 'forever' is engraved along with an intricate botanical design, onto their acrylic mirror base, creating a luxury wedding cake topper perfect for any wedding. This Wedding cake topper measures 12.7cm at its widest point and the stem is approximately 13 cm long and again is made from a 3mm acrylic mirror. It may be simple but it's lovely.

This Topper will also cost you £24  which again isn't a great deal of money to pay for something so beautifully crafted. It's such a tough choice but at the moment I think I'm going to go with the personalised one but who knows what could happen, I may change my mind.

Both Cake Toppers are absolutely beautiful and I'm so thankful to the lovely norma&dorothy for helping me with my recent quest for what to put on the top of my wedding cake. 

If you're currently planning your wedding and looking for what to put on the top of your wedding cake? Then why not take a little look at norma&dorothy, you won't be disappointed,

Treasure X Aliens Eggs #Review

Treasure X Aliens Eggs

Treasure X Aliens Eggs from Character Toys have landed and they are about to hatch just in time for Easter. If you're looking for an exciting Easter Egg this Easter that's not made of chocolate and has way more play appeal for your children, then look no further than here.

Simply break open the hard outer shell to discover a squishy alien egg inside. Then squeeze the egg really hard to hatch and watch it explode. Ryan found it quite tough to do but that added to the attraction, I think. No one wants something that's too easy and boring, do they? Inside the egg, covered in alien ooze is a collectable mini alien. Who will you find?

Once you have your new alien friend, you then to to search through the ooze to discover your alien treasure. Will you find a real gem treasure inside? We didn't sadly find a real gem inside our eggs but that's OK as we still love the ones we did find. These strange little aliens love sucking up their ooze through their mouth and nose which is quite fun to watch.  You squeeze the sides of your alien and watch them slurp it up and then spit it out again. It's fun!

Costing £4.99 each, these Treasure X Alien Eggs make great Easter Egg Alternatives and could also be really great as part of an egg hunt!  With 12 different Aliens to collect, you'll want to find them all. We found Suckator, Soogle Slug and Dripgrip from the Glitch Biters.

The Treasure X Alien Eggs are now available in Smyths Toys Superstores. Each Egg Includes 1x Outer Egg Vessel, 1x Alien Egg, 1x Alien Character, 1x Alien Treasure 1x Ooze and 1x Collector Guide/Instruction Manual. You get quite a lot for your £4.99 which is great.

Ryan loved helping his Treasure X Alien Eggs explode to find his hidden alien friends. He loves slime anyway so this ooze filled egg was the perfect toy for him. He's now got a little alien friend who sucks in and spits out pretty purple ooze all day long and he loves him. 

If you want to find out more about them and also grab the chance to win some prizes too, head on over to to where there are chances to win prizes and more!

Another Year Older and Wiser. . Turning 38.

Another Year Older and Wiser. . Turning 38.

Last weekend was my birthday where I turned 38. 38! I have no idea how I got to be this age. It only seems like yesterday that I turned 20, then 30, and now 38. Time sure flies by quickly as you get older but I've come to realise that age really is just a number. It doesn't mean much more than that to me. I remember when  turned 30, I got so upset and cried.

Turning 38 hasn't bothered me at all this year, I quite like the number 38 for some reason.

38 is the age I'll always remember as the year I finally got married so it'll always be a good number to me. After waiting so long, it's going to be a celebration to remember for my family.

Even though I am 38, I don't feel like I am and I don't think I look like I am either. I often get asked how old I am at work and find most reactions are ones of shock as they don't believe me. Most people I meet assume I'm in my 20's and talk to me like I'm still a child.

38 is the age when I;m going to do more things for me. It's the age I'll stop sitting back and coasting through my life, watching everyone else move onwards and getting left behind. At work I'm currently training to become a Manager which is a really big step for me. It means working more hours and more responsibility but also more money and more flexibility too. 

It's an exciting time for me at work right now, I'm finally moving on up in the world. 

2020 is going to be a good year for us here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries. 

We're moving forward with our lives so things can only get better from here onwards.

This is ME at 38 on my 38th Birthday last weekend.

I don't often post pictures of myself, maybe being 38 is my year of confidence to do so.

Play Time with So Slime - So Slime DIY - Slimelicious Sweet Shop and So Slime Glam DIY 3 Pack #Review

Play Time with So Slime - So Slime DIY - Slimelicious Sweet Shop and So Slime Glam DIY 3 Pack.

Today we made time for a little family play time which we dedicated to Slime Time. 

It's always good to step away from the TV, iPads and Phones to make a little time for some good old fashioned family fun. This afternoon, that's exactly what we decided to do.

Both my children absolutely LOVE Slime! Me on the other hand, I'm not such a fan. Slime is always messy and sticky and gooey and ergh but It's all those things that I hate about Slime that make my children love it so much. It's such a fun way to get messy, they tell me. Today, I put my mess fears aside and joined in some Slime making fun with the two of them after school. We were sent two different packs to play with so we had lots of Slime to make.

The first one is the So Slime Glam DIY 3 Pack – Parfum collection. 

Dial up the glamour with So Slime Glam 3 Pack which contains stunning shakers which when combined with scent, powder and decorations create something unique for slime fans.

Each 3 pack includes: 3 Shakers

3 Scented Slime powders

3 Bags of decoration

Lily and Ryan loved this set as the pots are nice and big meaning you get to make bigger portions of Slime. The Slime is really easy to make, you have everything you need in the set and then all you need to add is a little water. My first attempt didn't turn out too well as I added a bit too much water (silly me) but the other two turned out much better and were actually quite fun to make. One thing you notice is the smell, they all smell so good. 

With this set, you get three of everything so you can only make each Slime once but for the price of £9.99, it's still a very nice little set that both my kids enjoyed playing with today.

The second one is the So Slime DIY - Slimelicious Sweet Shop.

You can make your dreams come true and create your own mini Slimelicious sweet shop. 

These gorgeous little candy creations are simple with their easy no mess slime kits and you can even add your own personal touches to every scented slime you make with the delightful decorations and cute charms that all come included inside the box. Included is:

1 Sweet Shop
2 x mini shakers
6 x scented slimes
3 x decoration bags
2 x charms

This set costs £7.99 and has two mini shakers but six bags of powdered Slime included which means that you get to make six lots of Slime using the one set so you get a lot for your money. The shakers are much smaller than the other set but we found that to be a good thing as they set much quicker being smaller in size. Agan they smelt so good but please don't be tempted to eat them as Slime s not edible, not matter how good it smells. 

We've had lots of fun today playing with our Canal Toys So Slime toys. It's been nice to spend some time with the children doing something that they absolutely love doing. Both sets have been great fun but each child had a different favourite. Lily loved the Glam set mors as the pots were just so cute and are going to look great on her bedroom side. Whereas Ryan loved the Sweet shop set better because there was more Slime to be made.

There's so many different So Slime sets available from Canal Toys, we want them all.

Eating Out - The Queslett Pub, Sutton Coldfield #Review

Eating Out - The Queslett Pub, Sutton Coldfield 

It's been a few weeks since we last ate out as a family so it was a lovely treat on Sunday to head to newly refurbished The Queslett in Sutton Coldfield for our Sunday Dinner. It serves up authentic British cooking and real ales in a genuine local pub warmed by a cosy fire. We'd not been to The Queslett before so we're excited to see what it was like. The Pub looks very modern and spacious, inside and out and has a great feel of 'friendliness and warmth' inside. Our little table for four in the corner was the perfect setting to enjoy a peaceful family Sunday meal. Even though the Pub was quite busy during our visit which was nice to see, we were still able to relax and enjoy our meal and family time out together. 

The Menu has a wide variety of dishes on it so there's plenty of delicious food to choose from. We decided to treat ourselves to Starters, Garlic Bread for the kids, Salt and Pepper Calamari for Daddy and the Duck Live and Post parfait for me. Everything looked great and tasted just as good as it looked. Everything was beautifully presented and seasoned well.

You can't beat a nice slice of Garlic Bread Ciabatta.

For our Mains we enjoyed a kids Chicken Nuggets and Chips for Ryan, an Adults Classic Beef Burger for Lily and a  Classic Chicken Burger with BBQ sauce for Mummy and a Mixed Grill with an Upgraded to 8 oz Steak with a Peppercorn Sauce on the side for Daddy. 

Everything was cooked lovely and tasted great. The portion sizes were quite big so everyone had enough to eat. Again, everything was presented nicely and came out nice and hot. We had no problems with our meals and enjoyed tucking into them whilst we chatted.

You might think the plate looks a little empty but that's because the plates were really big and I asked for no side salad which is normally included with the meals. The Chicken Burger was so good and that bun, that bun was the yummiest, softest bun, I've had in a while.

Daddies Mixed Grill looked and tasted great. He was super happy with his meal and finished the whole lot. It was nice to see good sized pieces of meat that were all cooked perfectly. 

We had such a lovely visit to The Queslett on Sunday and really enjoyed our food. The staff were super friendly to everyone in the Pub, you really got the vibe of a good local Pub. The real wood fire was so lovely too. It kept us all super cosy and warm whilst Storm Dennis raged around us outside. It may have been windy and wet outside but it was lovely inside.

We would definitely recommend The Questlett to our friends and family as a nice place to go and eat. The meals cost a little more than we're used too but the standard of them was very high. Our four starters, and four Mains, plus a drink each cost us £59.00 in total.

So if you're looking for somewhere to relax and eat with your family in and around Sutton Coldfield or Birmingham, The Queslett could be an ideal choice for you to try out.

I may have enjoyed a cheeky glass of wine whilst we were out. *Cheers* 

The Queslett is an Ember Inns Pub so you can find one wherever you live in the UK.

Bouncing Good Fun at Rush UK Trampoline Park Birmingham #Review

Bouncing Good Fun at Rush UK 
Trampoline Park Birmingham

This weekend has been a blast. It's been a while since we had some good old fashioned family fun so we decided to dedicate our Saturday Morning to doing just that. We headed over to Kings Norton to Rush UK, a fantastic trampoline park based here in Birmingham. 

Everyone was very excited and really looking forward to having some fun together. We arrived at Rush Birmingham at 11:45 am, a good 15 minutes before our booked time slot of Midday so that we could get checked in, sign our Waiver, watch the Safety Video and get kitted out in our rather funky  ultra cools neon socks. Aren't they so pretty? I loved them.

Our pre booked, 60 Minutes Open Jump tickets cost £11.50 each which is pretty good for the hour of fun we enjoyed. Inside, facilities include a Main Court full of trampolines to bounce on as well a 2 Tumble Lanes for you to tumble along which looked like lots of fun.

There's a Dodgeball court which Daddy and Ryan had a quick blast in but Daddy, being the only 'grown up' in the court found himself the target of all the little children. He took it all in good spirits and I found it quite amusing. There's a Basketball hoop to have a go at too, Ryan loved it and had several goes trying to get a Slam Dunk with his basketball shots.

There's a Rush Wipeout zone and an Assault Course which everyone loved having a go at. I sat that one out as I'm just no good at things like that ( I'm sorry) The Assault Course is set up like a mini Ninja Warrior course so that was very exciting. It looked quite hard but they all gave it a good go and made it successfully to the end in one piece. It got very competitive.

There's so many different areas to enjoy inside the Rush UK arena. There's several foam pits that you can jump into from different levels. One even has a Trapeze swing to help you on your way. The kids loved the foam pits, they were huge. I on the other hand, struggled to get out of the foam pits. On one occasion I sank to the bottom and lost a sock which they all found very funny. You'll be glad to hear that all was not lost though as I found my sock.

There was also a Battle Beam which we all had a go at. It's like an old Gladiators game where you have to knock your opponent off the balance beam using giant padded poles. Daddy and Lily had several games of this as she was determined to beat him ( she didn't).

Ryan and Lily had a few games but it was getting a little rough between them so I stepped in to verse Lily for a final round. Lily came running at me but managed to lose her balance so I won due to her falling off the beam. I was a good Mummy and didn't even touch her.

Rush UK Birmingham was fantastic fun. We all had a wonderful hour of fun inside and would happily go back again. Not only did we enjoy an hour of fun but we also got a great work out. Who needs a gym session when you can have a bounce session. It was ace.

If you're looking for a fun day out this Half Term - You can Get Your Rush On at one of the two UK Trampoline Parks. There's one in Birmingham and another in High Wycombe.

Disclosure: We received complimentary access to Rush UK Birmingham in return for a honest review. All onions expressed are 100% my own and completely honest.

We Made it to the End of January.

We Made it to the End of January.

Why is it that January seems to last forever? It could be that we're all totally broke after the big Christmas spend or it could be that we're all fed up of the cold and longing for Summer.

Whatever the reasons, I'm just so happy that today is finally the last day. Hooray!

January for us has been a month filled of ups and downs for us. I hate Winter so it's never a good month for me as the threat of snow is always in the air but luckily I've been busy planning the Wedding so It's not been too bad. Lily has been busy rehearsing every day after school for her School Production of High School Musical 2 in two weeks where she's been cast as Sharpay Evans. I think I may have a little actress on my hands. Ryan's has joined two new clubs at school and is now on the school's Football and Dodgeball Team. He loves his sports and enjoys being apart of the teams at school. He's pretty good at them too.

Healthwise we've all been under the weather a bit this month. I had a major toothache which seemed to last for a whole week and then Daddy came down with a cold (or Man Flu as he called it) with a sore throat. Lily seems to have come through the month untouched, luckily for her. Hiding away from us 'sick people' in her bedroom had some positive outcomes it seems. Poor Ryan has had it the worst though. He's had the horrible cold, the cough and the sore throat and if that wasn't bad enough, he managed to suffer from a little ear ache too. Luckily it wasn't too bad though as it passed in a few days with the help of some liquid paracetamol so ear wax removal at home wasn't needed and I'm happy to say, we're all good now. Everyone's feeling better and life is looking up. February is almost here and we're all ready to embrace it so goodbye January and Hello February. We can't wait to greet you.

February is a good month as it's Valentine's Day, Daddy's birthday and almost my Birthday (Mine's March 1st) so seeing as it's a Leap Year this year, I have to wait an extra day. 

This year I've decided to write a post about 'us' every month. Just a little update on what's happening in our lives. January's may be a dull but here's to hoping February is brighter.

Disclosure: This is a collaborative post.

Fine Dining at Gaucho with Red Letter Days #Review

Fine Dining at Gaucho with Red Letter Days #Review

It's a new year so I wanted to try some new experiences so Red Letter Days was right up my street. With over 30 year Experience and thousands of Gift Experiences to choose from, they were my go to place when I wanted to treat myself to a Fine Dining experience close to home this month. I've used Red Letter Days several times before but usually I pick a little luxury in the form of a Spa Day or a Beauty treatment so this time I thought I'd try something different and go for some fancy food. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I picked a romantic 3 Three Course Dinner with Glass of Prosecco at Gaucho for Two .

Leading the way in the world of fine dining, Gaucho is renowned for its contemporary and quality cuisines. Taking inspiration from Argentina, you can discover the wonders of a world class steak with a decadent three course dinner for two. Relax and soak up the ambience of it's stylish settings whilst tucking into a starter, a main and a dessert, all enjoyed from a superb set menu. From succulent steak cuts to coconut crumble with meringue, savour every rich and luscious bite with a glass of prosecco each. Choose from four modern city locations to satisfy a steak connoisseur and relax within a cosy ambience. Lucky for me there was one in my home town in Birmingham, just as short bus ride away. I was excited!

Originally this experience was meant to be a romantic meal for two for my Fiance and I but due to unforeseen circumstances, it became a Mother and Daughter treat for two instead which was still rather lovely. We got to dress up and enjoy a luxury girls night out. We booked our table with a lovely lady through email by following the Red Letter Days website instructions of how to book, which was all very quick and easy to do. We booked ourselves in for 6:45pm on a Friday night which was the perfect time for us, not too early that we'd be the first ones there but not too late that it would be too busy and we'd feel overcrowded.

Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and our coats were taken by the lovely staff members. The place looked so fancy, everyone was all dressed up in pretty dresses and swanky suits. It was nice to be in a place like this for a change, it's not the sort of place I'd normally visit on my normal budget but as a one off, it was such a lovely treat to enjoy.

Our corner table made for the perfect view of the restaurant so we could see the whole room. The room was already buzzing with people and filled with laughter, chat and fun. We were talked through the Menu and our order was taken. Everyone was so friendly.

The Set Menu looked something a little like this:


CHORIZO SAUSAGE Morcilla, romesco sauce
TUNA CEVICHE Avocado mousse, pickled radish, tomatoes and agua chilli dressing
BEEF CARPACCIO smoked, salt cured in juniper, mustard seeds and bay leaf, fire sealed over the grill, umami chimichurri.


ANCHO 250g RIBEYE. Delicately marbled throughout for superb, full-bodied flavour
CHORIZO 250g SIRLOIN. Tender yet succulent with a strip of juicy crackling
FILLET OF SEABASS Grilled served with crispy and sautéed kale, burnt lime and tomatillo salsa BEETROOT RISOTTO Puree, roasted and crisp beetroot, toasted almonds.


DULCE DE LECHE FLAN Coconut crumble, meringue
COCONUT TRES LECHE Coconut flourless cake, pear sorbet
APPLE PANCAKE Caramel calvados, Nutella, dulce de leche mousse

Before our Starter had even arrived, we were surprised with an extra little treat of some delicious warm breads with a garlic butter and little pots of freshly grounded salt and pepper which was lovely. Our Starters were delicious too, we choose the Tuna for my Mum and the Chorizo Sausage for me. Both were perfectly presented and tasted so good. Mmm.

For our Mains, my Mum chose the Ribeye steak and I chose the Sirloin, both were served with a good sized portion of chips and a umami chimichurri sauce. Cooked Medium Well, they were cooked just the way we liked. You could have a side salad if you didn't want chips but the chips were delicious so I'd definitely recommend that you choose the chips. 

There was a slight change on the Menu with the Desserts as one of the original options had been replaced with a Sticky Toffee instead which we both decided to go for and were so glad we did. Again, the portion size was much bigger than we had expected for such a fancy place but it was so sweet and sticky, just as a good Sticky Toffee pudding should be. It did come served with a side of Clotted Cream which we didn't like too much but the pudding was good. We would have prefered a simple side of Vanilla Ice Cream or custard maybe.

Overall, we enjoyed a very pleasant evening at Gaucho Birmingham and would happily go again. The service was superb throughout and the food was absolutely delicious. 

If you would like to try the same experience, the Three Course Dinner with Glass of Prosecco at Gaucho for Two is available from Red Letter Days at 7 UK Locations and will cost you £100. It's Valid until 28 Feb 2020 so you need to be quick if this one's for you.

Please note that although your voucher is paid for, there is a discretionary 12.5% service charge that will be added to your final bill. I paid a an extra £12.50 for this service charge.

Disclosure: We received a complimentary Three Course Dinner with Glass of Prosecco at Gaucho for Two for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% Honest and my own.
