#capturingtheday is a hashtag community run by Double the Monkey Business and Life is Knutts. Original post here.
We met a huge milestone this week, over 1,000 tags on #capturingtheday. I was pretty speechless when I noticed that, which as the hubby will tell you doesn’t happen very often!
We are now onto week 6 and #capturingtheday is stronger than ever on Instagram and we are seeing new people tag us every week which is incredibly exciting.
To join in keep tagging us. Everyone is welcome. Every kind of photo is welcome from kiddies, to your latest stab at the Great British Bake Off, we want to see anything that you feel captures your day.
Week 6 – My Favourites
I defy anyone to look at that top left photo and not have their mouth watering! This looks incredible. I love the recipes from the Culinary Jumble, which you may have noticed if you follow me on Facebook.
This simple photo of a mum holding up her baby really struck a cord with me this week. A gorgeous photo where you can feel the motherly. The comment alongside this photo sees the other side of parenthood, sleep training. It took me right back to those days and I can totally relate to the struggles this mum is facing.
I love a roadtrip and the bottom right photo make me yearn for a holiday! The view in this picture makes me want explore on the open road. I am off to pack my bags….
Lastly, this little girl is absolutely adorable. I adore The Mummy Stylist’s feed, Honey Nut is just gorgeous. As I said to Gemma this morning, it almost makes me broody. Then I get brought back to earth by my two who remind me I have more than enough on my plate!

LIFE IS KNUTTS – MY FAVOURITE
For those that follow Gemma’s feed, you have noticed she has been busy prepping her parent’s 60th for a few weeks now. We have seen her do a stellar job on decorations and this is the icing on the cake – sorry I couldn’t resist!
I think she has done an amazing job, much better than anything I could achieve that is for sure.
Sending birthday wishes and hope the gin hangover is not too bad!
Final cake of the year made for the old folks 60th on Saturday…apart from the booze soaked Christmas cake that is. Wanted to try a rustic looking one and it turns out it’s a bit like trying to do a messy bun in your hair…looks easy, is actually really bloody difficult 😂🙈 #pblogger #ukparentbloggers #cake #birthdaycake #happybirthday #birthdaycakeideas #rusticcake #capturingtheday #rememberingthesedays #pinklinker #60 #60thbirthday #baking #baker #amaturebaker #homebaking #homebaker #GBBO #instafood #insta_food #ig_food
