#capturingtheday – Week 14 Roundup

It’s the final countdown!

(Love a bit of Europe I do!)

Only 2 weeks until the big fat man visits and I still haven’t done ANYTHING. Literally, I have done nothing. This week is the week, except my husband still hasn’t given me any ideas and I am feeling very uninspired at the moment. Ideas on a postcard please!

Sickness has been rife in our household this week and all 3 kids have taken it in turns to tag team with the puke-fest. It’s been awful and to top things off, the eldest has it back again. Yep, he has had it twice in a week. Lord have mercy and pass me the Gin. I might bathe in it to disinfect myself…

So, onto this weeks roundup. We are now 14 weeks in (14!!!! We can’t believe it!) and we have accumulated almost 3500 images now. All of them are wonderful, truly, we really mean that, and we are so happy that lots of you join in by tagging #capturingtheday.


So, without further ado, here are my 4 choices for #capturingtheday…

An absolutely gorgeous mum-to-be, some incredible fancy dress friends, a beautiful hug between a Nan and her Grandchildren and a frosty morning down by the water…

 Yvonne and her little chaps have been getting all crafty this week and put some life back into some old Baubles. The boys painted them, let them dry and then hung them on the tree. A lovely way of making a memento each year. I absolutely love hanging decorations with a story behind them on the tree, even if it doesn’t make it ‘Pinterest perfect’. It’s all about making memories.

#capturingtheday – Week 11 Roundup

Week 11 of our instagram community #capturingtheday is go!

Another week has gone by and we are another week closer to…Christmas! I know, I know, it’s still only the middle of November, but we can’t ignore it now people. I have officially done NOTHING. How about you guys? Have you all started Christmas shopping?

As usual, we had so many wonderful photos to choose from this week, capturing everything from days out, to lazy days at home, to baking and smiley, happy kids. We are really loving all the photos that are flooding in!


So, without further ado, here are my 4 featured images for this week’s #capturingtheday…

A gorgeous little chap with a muddy hand (the sign of a fun day that is!), some AMAZING Children in Need Cakes (seriously, how good are they?!?!), a delicious baked caramel apple with ice cream (drool!) and a little one havnig some word/handwriting practice on the kicthen floor with some chalk.

 To finish, here is my fave photo by my partner in crime for #capturingtheday, Yvonne over at Double the Monkey Business

a peach winter rose

I am a sucker for a rose, but the winter flowering ones especially. They always manage to cheer me up on a cold, dull day.

I loved the pale peach colour of this one too.
