Discovering nature in Maidenhead on The Green Way. Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Picture the scene: the sun was shining, the eldest was at school, and my husband and I were at home with our soon-to-be-two little boy. Regular readers of the blog will know that I’m a firm believer in ‘little adventures’: I love to plot day trips to beaches, castles, beautiful towns… anywhere to inspire the mind and lift the soul. (Especially if there is a...

Show why you #lovemaidenhead and win. Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Way back at the beginning of the year I had a little idea. As I scrolled through my instagram feed I realised that there were very few photos of Maidenhead being shared. There were plenty of amazing photos of London… and even Windsor. But Maidenhead? Zilch. I appreciate that we don’t have as many iconic landmarks or famous places to visit. But as a community...

Family friendly live music: Concertini reviewed. Family Friendly / Maidenhead

I was recently invited along to a classical music concert at Norden Farm. Not a traditional one though! This was a concert with a difference as it wasn’t a ‘sit-in-your-seats’ kind of concert but instead, one where children are encouraged to chill out, dance or even just colour in. Concertini is definitely something a little bit special and was a great way to spend my...

Venice is a beautiful place to visit and we have lovely memories to look back on. Family Friendly / Travel

As we speed into Spring, the holiday season is fast approaching. Last year, despite being 6 months pregnant and with a 3-year-old in tow, we chose Venice as the destination for our family holiday.

As I nipped out to go to the local Post Office I walked past this dazzling sunset over Boyne Hill Park! It's the little things like this that make you smile and are reasons to #lovemaidenhead Family Friendly / Maidenhead

A little while ago on my Maidenhead Mum Facebook page I mentioned that I’d like to take more photos of Maidenhead this year to help it get recognition for being a great place to live. So I asked the question: What does Maidenhead mean to you?   I was quite surprised by the varied responses. Maidenhead Landmarks? Alongside some of the more obvious ones like Brunel’s...

Baby's first Christmas Family Friendly / Maidenhead / Reviews

Although Christmas might seem a distant memory and the decorations are all safely stashed in the loft, I’ve been enjoying looking back at photos from our Family Festive Lunch at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow. With family living in Birmingham and Cardiff, it’s hard for us all to be together on Christmas Day so we’ve learned that the best way to cope with a ‘long-distance’ family...

Peppa Pig Live: Perfect Family Fun Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Reviews

Two children, up, dressed and fed and two parents showered, dressed, breakfasted and ready to go by 9am on a Saturday morning. What was I thinking?! How on earth could this ever be filed under ‘fun family things to do at the weekend?!’ But I shouldn’t have had doubt. ‘Peppa Pig Live’ at the Wycombe Swan didn’t disappoint.

Fairground and Firework Fun at Carter’s Steam Fair Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Carter’s steam fair If you’re local to Maidenhead then you’ve probably seen the signs around town for Carter’s Steam fair.
