A local night out: The Real Greek in Reading reviewed Food and drink / Local / Reviews

In Maidenhead, we’ve had the promise of new restaurants and bars for a while, but while we wait for the regeneration plans to kick off fully, I find that many people seem to nip to Marlow or Windsor for a night out. The Real Greek Restaurant in Reading claims to offer mouthwatering Mediterranean flavours, fresh Greek food, a vibrant atmosphere and it’s all local to Maidenhead! It...

My Little Lady checking out the flowers in the Nicholson Centre in Maidenhead Local / Maidenhead

I’m sure you’ll all have realised that this Sunday (6th March) is Mother’s Day. A chance to say ‘thanks’ to your Mum for all of the hard work she puts in all year round. Ideas for Mother’s Day in Maidenhead I thought that I could perhaps use this blog to help give a little something back to all of the other Maidenhead Mums. Especially those...

Off exploring again... Days Out Guide / Local / Maidenhead

It’s Autumn. Quite possibly the most photogenic month of the year. Add in a Little Lady that has just discovered the joy of riding her balance bike and a photographer mum with a new camera and new smartphone to play with and it’s been hard to keep us both indoors.

Crossrail, what would Brunel think? Local

Crossrail – The 15 Billion Pound Railway For us Maidenhead folk, Crossrail is starting to crop up in more and more of our conversations. Whether it’s the (organised?) chaos of Maidenhead station car park as the platforms are developed or the spurt in house prices we’ve seen over the last 12 months, I think its fair to say that there is a certain air of...

The ladies of Maidenhead mean business. Local

Living in Maidenhead I thought I’d start this blog post with a bit of a confession…. * takes deep breath * When I first moved to Maidenhead in 2010, I was a little derogatory about the town. There, I’ve said it! Admittedly I’d just moved from Camden Lock in London, and before that I’d lived in New York, so of course it was going to...

I guess by now you must all be very aware that Christmas is just around the corner. Hopefully you’ve managed to make a start on the Christmas shopping and have nabbed yourselves a few deals in the Black Friday and Cyber Monday events. But although it can sometimes feel easier to shop online (apart from the delivery challenges!) <insert Yodel/Hermes/Other company rant here>, it’s worth...

Fitness and advice, with an expert twist. Local

Sam, the founder of POWMAK demonstrates a move Wherever possible I like to use this Maidenhead Mum blog to support local businesses and help tell their story to a wider audience. So when another local mum mentioned the POWMAK Pilates Studio at Windsor Marina, I was interested to find out more. I’m not paid to write these blog posts (unless I mention it upfront!) and...

Perfect Friday Wine, perfect on Saturdays too. Local

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited along to a wine tasting event organised by Jo from Perfect Friday Wine. One of the things I’ve come to love about blogging is the way it helps you network with other people, and especially other Mums who have a passion for things above and beyond working the usual 9-5 in the office or being a...
