Sharing my experiences and adventures in Berkshire and beyond

Jodie - Maidenhead Mum

Hi, thanks for visiting ‘Maidenhead Mum’

Here you’ll find posts and reviews about my life here in Maidenhead with two small children. I write about a broad selection of subjects, from family friendly restaurants, things to do at half term and even where to go on ‘date night’ in Maidenhead and the surrounding areas. I’m always looking for new ideas and experiences so please get in touch if you’d like to share your story on the blog.

Although we had queued to get into Cliveden we avoided the crowds and explored the woods instead of following the Easter Trail. Maidenhead

As we have suddenly landed in June I thought it was high time that I published an update on the #lovemaidenhead photography project that I started back in January. What is #lovemaidenhead? In case you’ve not heard of the project, it’s a community based photo project that I have created to help Maidenhead get the recognition it deserves for being a great place to live. The idea...

Learn with me

As an established blogger and photographer, I now also run short, informal training courses to help small businesses learn how to use content marketing and blogging to engage with their customers. And, seeing as photography has always been such a big part of my blog and my life, I also run sessions on how to take great photos with your smartphone, a question I get asked a lot!

You can find out more about either of these courses using the contact form or by emailing me: info@maidenheadmum.co.uk

#lovemaidenhead – Join in with the community hashtag project

Putting Maidenhead on the Map

I’d like as many people in Maidenhead to get involved. All you have to do is take a photo of something you love in and around Maidenhead, share it on Instagram and use the hashtag #lovemaidenhead. It doesn’t have to be a photographic masterpiece, just something you snap on your phone. There’s no need to limit yourself to things in the centre of town, it can be anything within a short distance of Maidenhead that you have the privilege to enjoy as a Maidenhead resident.  I’ll do a regular roundup of 9 photos with the #lovemaidenhead tag and share on my ‘Maidenhead Mum’ Instagram and Maidenhead Mum Facebook page.

Encouraging the Bookworm Bug – joining the library.

Something I’ve been meaning to do for ages is to join the library with the little one. I grew up with such a passion for books. I collected Enid Blyton books and at one point had hundreds of them. Scrumptious, Tally Ho and lashings and lashings of Ginger Beer indeed. Holidays abroad you’d find me sat underneath a towel reading away, hiding from the sun. And...

Papercup Kitchen launch event

  One of the things I’ve come to really like about living in Maidenhead is that its relatively small…. And that once you get to know a few people, you start to find that you actually know a lot more. Dropping off the little one at nursery I’ve recently bumped into Jo Randell who has taken the plunge and set up her own business, Perfect...

The Ordinary Moments

The Ordinary moments They say a girl can never have too many shoes. For me its cameras!    For those of you that know me, you’ll have witnessed that I like to share bits (Ok, most!) of my life online. Whether that’s on Facebook as I admit to yet another blonde moment or on Instagram as I share the things I’m seeing and doing. In...

Are you a ‘CARDZILLA’? When Christmas Cards attack….

Well, its happened.  Its *that* time of year. Its the day before Christmas… Santa is getting his sleigh ready and the ‘have you been a good girl?’ question comes to mind… but perhaps you should also consider another question this year… Have you become CARDZILLA?! Forget ‘Bridezilla’, Cardzilla is the term I’ve created (copyright @maidenheadmum) to describe those people that count themselves guilty of some (maybe...

When less costs more. A plea to Debenhams and other retailers to stop.

When it comes to retail, I’d class myself as a savvy shopper, and it would seem that being wise with the pennies is pretty en vogue at the moment. Its cool to shop around, price compare and use your your mobile to get the best voucher codes.  But, having a little one, and working three days a week means that I don’t really ‘hit the...

Bright Lights, Big City. Starbucks is coming to Maidenhead!

So its official. The start of the ‘metropolisation’ of Maidenhead has begun: Move over New York and London, Starbucks is coming to Maidenhead. Or at least thats one way of looking at it. When I try to describe what Maidenhead is like, Starbucks is one of the first things I seem to mention.  As in ‘We don’t even have a Starbucks’. (For the record, I’m...
