Giggling Squid, Berkhamsted

Giggling Squid, Berkhamsted - a review of the Berko branch of this Thai restaurant group.

A catch up with my favourite lady, Loulou, was LONG overdue so when some training for work was put in my diary in her neck of the woods I said "hey lady, let's go and eat food!".  The Giggling Squid in Berkhamsted seemed like a good option as neither of us had visited yet, they had vegan-friendly options (Loulou) and Crohn's friendly options (me)...

Berkhamsted is such an old town and there are some real gems of buildings that are hundreds of years old.   I guess with 20 branches of the Giggling Squid dotted around the country it would be considered a "chain" but when I entered the restaurant I was so pleased to see that they had managed to keep so many of the old features (exposed beams, low ceilings) but also created an airy and modern atmosphere.

What I Got Up To: January 2017

Hey!  How's your 2017 been so far?  Work was utterly ridiculous in the run-up to Black Friday and "peak" (hashtag retail life) but I made it and it's been nice to be able to just have some time to take a breath and get back to "normal" (if there is such a thing in retail...).

Weekends have been mostly spent just relaxing on the sofa with a blanket and something entertaining on the telly. There has been an increase in cinema trips though because Mr Jones gave me the BEST present ever for Christmas, a Limitless pass for Odeon cinemas which lets you go and see ALL the films as many times as you like, as often as you like.

I'm now in my third year of collecting a "photo a day" and am still *mostly* actually sticking to it.  For me it's a really nice way of being able to look back over the last months/years and remembering what I've been doing, where I've been, what I've been eating, etc.
