About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

10 out of 10 for effort on your part! x

I too am starting to go a little insane thinking up new and creative ideas to entertain two little people during our lovely,rainy summer break. We too have days involving large chunks of crying, howling and tantrums however hard I try!! I've now resorted to daytrips in pac-a-macs and wellies for my sanity as well as theirs. Great picture of the chalk by the way, love it!

Board games always run in a similar fashion in our house. Yesterday my son (8) tried to teach my daughter (4) how to play chess purely so he could outwit her and steal all her pieces - cue hysterical screaming - aaah the joy!
Enjoy the coffee!

You are doing a sterling job! All I can say is I am so glad my kids are grown up. Your ripple blanket is wonderful! Can't wait to see the hexagon one when it is finished.

Your neighbours have got the right idea, haven't they?!x

French Knots

I think my two like to argue, they certainly do enough of it! Baking is always good and if it ever stops raining we like painting the flags with big decorating brushes and water!

Brings back memories of entertaining my two (who are now 16 and 19), I was a very dedicated entertainer with my first-born Son and we got up to all sorts just like you, I have to confess I wasn't quite as good with my daughter! But I'll have my chance again one day I'm sure with Grandchildren!
Have a fun week.

OO! Glad it's you enjoying 70,000sq ft of fun and not me. I remember those places from when my two were little, THE NOISE!!!I hate those places! Buns and chalk, much more fun!

Hope you had fun! I know my girls have always loved chalk and cake best, nothing too competitive!

I just found your blog by accident...somehow was directed here by Jane at Posy.....and I love it!!!! You have a great sense of humor. Although my children are not little anymore [12 and 17] I still spend tons of time with them. Your blog reminds me of my own days with littler ones. I will be back.......a lot.

I totally understand where your coming from it can be hard work keeping my two entertained Emily loves a jigsaw while Elliott loves to destroy it or Emily will decorate cakes beautifully whilst Elliott get's in a sticky mess AARRGH!!! Enjoy your day off from it all!

Your house sounds like ours as the neighbour's children tend to congregate at ours too. Enjoy your day out at the activity centre, like the sound of the homemade cakes!

Chalks and Cakes good. Paints and Snakes and Ladders bad. I wish I was visiting a place with 70,000 square feet of fun. I'll have to make do with 15 square foot of the dining room today!
