I was invited along by the Giggling Squid, Wokingham to enjoy a complimentary meal for two and chose to take my husband as my guest.

All Aboard at Pinewood (Wokingham) Miniature Railway

It’s certainly popular and we queued for about 15 minutes for a ride on one of the miniature trains. There were about 4 trains in operation so the queue kept moving all the time. Whilst waiting it was great fun just watching the trains (a mixture of electric and steam) leaving and returning to the station and it meant that my little one didn’t…

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park

We took a family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park during the first weekend of February half term. Despite it being cold the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining.

There were lots of ducks and geese to look at and plenty of muddy puddles! Our walk was lovely and it was fantastic to be outside in the fresh air,…
