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

sigh... I really love your posts and especially the pics... thank you for sharing. I visit your wonderful attic often and living here in Northern Canada, I need the "color fix". Thanks again!


Still and all, looks like a lovely and peaceful day; so funny the way the wee ones view things...just the other day my granddaughter asked to make cookies, we got out all the ingredients, she patiently shaped the cookies, waited for them to cool and then decorated...later on, at bedtime, when asked if she had a nice day baking cookies, she replied "ah, it was kinda boring"...I said, "well, why didn't you tell me?" She replied, "I did it for you Nonnie" :-)

I've been thinking today that what was needed for a Monday of quiet after the children had all gone back to school was an Attic24 blogpost to read in peace! So thank you Lucy!!

Your walk sounds like a lot of fun. We really must take our children "out and about" more - we tend to spend most family time at home or at the allotment and I feel we are letting them down a little.

Shame your two didn't quite love the day for the same reasons as you - but it sounds like a very familiar kind of response!!!

They'll look back on the day with fonder memories than just the sweets and the tired legs I can assure you. My two 'boys' are 22 and 28 now and they come out with some lovely comments sometimes on days we had many years ago that they took for granted then, but realise now what family building enjoyable days they were. It gives me a lovely warm glow when they do!

Oh, I love seeing the photos of your walks. It takes me back to my Duke of Edinburgh award hikes years ago... Thanks again!


You live in a beautiful country, Lucy, so many places close by to enjoy. I am amazed how everything is starting to turn green....not the case here as we are still covered in a blanket of snow. So tired of it. Thank you for sharing your walk...I feel a bit refreshed now!


You make me want to fly across the ocean just for some of your walks.

Ahhh Grass Woods - fond memories - thank you for reminding me :o)

We have a book which would serve you well: Yorkshire Dales Walks with Children by Stephen Rickerby published by Sigma Leisure - www.sigmapress.co.uk - ISBN no:1-85058-569-5 Great children length walks with lots of stimulating questions and things to look out for - we've not used it much but used the Gloucestershire equivalent to death as we lived there when ours were the age of yours - check it out :o)

Your posts are beautiful, so full of happiness.


Trust children to inject a touch of reality into what looked like a blissful day. They never quite see it the same was as us do they?


Oh bless those little people so scrummy, so quaint, so normal!


Thank you for taking us on a walk with you... I enjoyed it!


The sun found you Lucy! He knew how much you love colour!!! The little moss hedgehog is very cute. I bet your LP will look back in years to come and remember what fun it was to go on long walks with their Mum and Dad.


I would love to come on a walk with you.. looks beautiful :)


Children are quite honest, aren't they!? I am sure they will look back on the day with many fond memories. It sure is beautiful there...and green! I am still dreaming of spring. Have a great day! Liz


Oh my god! What an absolutely beautiful place! The view from your window is always a joy, but that is some wonderful walk.

Thank you for keeping so many of us sane, I can't wait to get home from work and see if you've had a day I can only dream about!


What a lovely way to end the holidays. You are very lucky to live so close to such beautiful walking country. Hope the lovely weather lasts. Karenx


Aaw, what a lovely walk you had. Gorgeous pics too. We had a lovely walk on our holiday with our youngest singing "are we there yet" all, yes, ALL the 2 miles back. Lovely!! Kathy


wow, wow, i love that area, so green and breathtaking..Its a beautiful place...


Oh Lucy, the pictures of the walk are just beautiful. I was 'made' not too far from that neck of the woods.

As for Barbie friction...have you ever been rail-roaded into sewing Barbie outfits?
I have , years ago and the foot control on my sewing machine blew up....all those thicknesses to sew through, it was a swimsuit as I recall. Those were the days.
b.t.w. satay noodles again for dinner. Great recipe. Thanks.

once again you send me down memory lane, this time to family caravan holidays in Grassington


Lovely, lovely photos, I felt like I went on that walk with you. And my legs didn't get tired! Thx for sharing your day.


Feeling jealous that you get to enjoy such beautiful walks. Kids are funny. Apparently when Billy Connelly did a tour of the UK with his kids the thing they liked best was the tape they listened to in the car :-).



Your landscape is breathtaking in its beauty, in the eyes of this adult.

I am laughing at the evening reviews of that walk given by your little people. It's grand that they can tell you exactly what that thought. All the same, bet that the seeds were indeed planted for the joys to be gathered on future walks.

Thanks for taking us along. xo


Love the pics Luce! Thanks for sharing again.

I love going on the hikes with my wee ones. Expecially our oldest (21) because he always complains about joining along but when we get our destination he has the most fun out of us all. The girls like to see if they will be able to see a moose or something. I'm always hoping we don't. As long as they all have fun and they aren't sitting in front of the tv, I'm happy.

Just think of all the wonderful memories you will all have from this trip. :)

toodles! xxxx
