Making the most of life 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.

#lovemaidenhead – Join in with the community hashtag project

Putting Maidenhead on the Map

In 2016, I started tagging my photos of Maidenhead on Instagram with #lovemaidenhead and encouraged the community to get involved. The hashtag has now been used over 1000 times!  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.

If you want to see more images of Maidenhead, why not buy my Maidenhead calendar which has over 40 images of Maidenhead and includes all of the community dates for the rest of the year. Just click on the calendar section here on my site or visit the Craft Coop shop in town to buy one.

Eat On The High Street launches in Maidenhead

Here on the Maidenhead Mum blog I love to hear about things that are supporting Maidenhead. I’d seen the posters for ‘Eat on the High Street’ around town, but it wasn’t until I bumped into one of the organisers at a Maidenhead Business Girls meet up that I understood just how good an idea it was. Shop local, eat local? With a name like ‘Eat...

Me, Mine and Maidenhead: February update

This week there has been a lot of chatter in the press about toddler tantrums and parenting styles so it feels particularly apt that my family photo I’m sharing for the February ‘Me and Mine’ project is a little bit different to the usual happy, smiley family photo I would usually take. Farewell February February seems to have flown by for us in a haze/daze...

5 reasons to visit Venice with a toddler

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. Not exactly the first destination that comes to mind when you think of a holiday suitable for a little one but I was keen for us to experience something a little...

Shop local this Mother’s Day in 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...

Me, Mine and Maidenhead: January 2016

  One of my resolutions this year is to make more of an effort to take photos of the four of us as a family, so I’ve made a resolution to make sure I take at least one family portrait every month. January was a bit of a blur for us with illness meaning I was grounded for a lot of the month. But despite...
