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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

I love the photo with the bubble! My son has just turned 10 and he has never been allowed to play out in the streets. It is not 'safe' in my neighbourhood. I remember being streetwise at about 7 years old and I feel sad the he doesn't have the same freedom as I did! I like the fact that you gave the children buckets and brushes to clean up!

Oh how I miss those kiddie summers of ice pops and paddling pools! Although we do have a windowsill full of jam jars full of catapillars! Its mackrel and sweet potato fishcakes for tea!

Rosie Graham

That sounds like a fabulous day! Just like the things we did when we were children.

Sometimes it's the ordinary things that make life special.
Looking back over time you and children will have such wonderful memories of school hols filled with fun not matter what the weather.

Ali

It's the stuff of childhood memories. We're lucky with a 'safe' street to play on too. Makes life much easier.

Joanne

what a lovely day of memories, just like we had as children. We are also lucky enough to live in a safe area for the children to go out and play.

Rachael Rabbit

Homemade lollies and super soakers - what fun!!!

Sue

Good free fun!! (well £6 for the blaster...)

Anna

chalking- how cool! far more exciting than computer games, me thinks. I still remember playing out in our street when we were kids, such happy memories (albeit hazy!)of games of marbles, conkers, learning to ride my bike, hiding from the mean cat that lived opposite who used to scratch, climbing the nighbours plum tree...happy days indeed.x

The Vintage Kitten

What a lovely post, it took me back to my childhood in the 70's. In those days we happily played outside in all weathers for hours with the simple things your children have enjoyed this summer. Its so nice to see children not sitting in front of the TV or computer (says the woman who has been blogging all day!!)

Hi Lucy, I have only just discovered your wonderful daily tales of family life. Glad you had a lovely time in Northumberland. We love it there too. We had a week in the Lakes in July very warm and rather damp but still had a great time.
Our cottage backed onto Whinlatter Forest; we had red squirrels and deer in the garden, the children were delighted.
I hope all goes well tomorrow when you little lady begins school. I hated it when my youngest son started school. It does get better though and its great fun going on school trips and helping in class with reading or even teaching the little ones crochet! Kx
