#capturingtheday – Week 18 Roundup

It’s Sunday again and that means it’s time for our #capturingtheday roundup!

I have been man down with a flu type bug this weekend. It’s been a bit rubbish – body aches, head that feels like it wants to explode, shivers, burning up, the works – and despite the husband being home to ‘help’, he didn’t really. He reluctantly got up yesterday morning after the toddler started going bonkers to get up and then I was up by 10:30am because he was off out on a bike ride. The joys of being sick when you’re a mum, eh?!

Anyhow, I am feeling quite a bit better today which is good. Don’t have time for this being sick malarkey do we.

Hope you’ve all had a good week?

I have been LOVING the frosty mornings. I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I do love how the frost has the ability to touch even the most mundane of things and make them look magical…

#capturingtheday – Week 17 Roundup

Another week has passed us by and grim January has definitely reared it’s ugly head here.

Grey clouds, rain, post-Christmas blues, desperation to see those first bulbs of spring pop up through the earth and a lust for chocolate whilst trying to eat more healthily.

We were forecast biblical snow, Thundersnow to be exact, on Thursday but it was more of a damp squib of a dusting. That said, it was enough snow to bring the whole of Surrey to a complete standstill. Mr Knutts takes 45 minutes to get back from work on a normal day. Snow day however, 5 hours. Yep, 5 sodding hours. You’d have thought councils might have gritted roads if they knew the snow was forecast but no, they would rather have pandemonium than spend a few quid on keeping the roads clear.

I’m ranting aren’t it.

See, told you January blues had hit.

Anyway, one thing that has cheered me up this week is seeing your #capturingtheday photos. Seriously, I know I say it every week but the caliber of photography out there is just amazing. Myself and Yvonne never tire of looking at your tagged photos and we were also pleased as punch that we went over 5k images tagged this week!

Woo hoo!

“Crack open another box of Ferrero Rocher Gemma!”

Oh alright, if you insist.


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

A gorgeous little face peeking out from a winter coat hood, a outcome of a family board game session summed up beautifully (that face!!),gorgeous Daddy and Daughter selfie and a little one catching snowflakes on their tongue.

Her boys said it was, “the best climbing frame ever”, and I am inclined to agree. My boys would be mind blow playing on this!

#capturingtheday – Week 13 Roundup

It’s Chriiiiiiiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaas!

(best Noddy Holder impression)

I literally cannot believe it peeps.

It’s December, we are 21 days away from the big fat man in the red suit visiting and I have done sweet F.A.

Nothing. Not a jot.

Well, I tell a lie. I have at least booked my online food shop and added 5 bottles of Prosecco to it. Who needs Turkey anyway?!

So, onto this weeks roundup. We are now 13 weeks in (13!!!! We can’t believe it!) and we have accumulated over 3000 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…

A cute and cheeky festive snap, a frosty walk, the magic of posting your Christmas list to Santa and helping to decorate the Christmas tree…
