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

They look very Yummy Mummy Sweets Lucy! Who could blame you for wanting to keep them for yourself :O)


Oooh, but how did you resist Percy Pigs?


Mmm they look yummy. I have to go into London today for an interview and as there's an M+S at Marylebone station I'm thinking I may have to treat myself to a packet of these on the way back as a reward for getting through the interview and to go with the magazine I've promised myself on the way home too! Just hope I get the job to pay for them both!


Mmmmmmm, fruit sherberts... havent had these in ages....

**mouth currently watering**

But did you give in and let the little ones have just one sweet each?

Years ago when I traveled more to England, my nephews always asked to bring back a huge sack of sweets from Woolworth's--they were so different and such interesting names and unexpected flavors.....they would do the usual child thing of separating them and counting and ordering what would be eaten first, etc....which do you eat first? What flavors go with what colors? Don't you just feel rich to have soooooo many???

Oooh yeah we all need a little Mummy treat every now and again, I love all sweets too, bit of a downfall really! I usually give in though and end up giving them to the kids, although I have been known to hide things like this in my wool stash for emergency's!!
Enjoy every one! You deserve them!



They look delicious.

Perhaps you should have brought some other sweets for the little ones to make you feel a little less guilty?

Enjoy xx

m&s do the most yummy sweets, i was at one point addicted to the noguart ones mmmm! i may have to go get some now!

Liquorice UCK! hate the after taste!


oh you just don't know how jealous I am that 1. you were in M&S buying pickle and 2. you got sweets too...nothing, just nothing better than a trip to Marks and Sparks, I miss it soooo much it really is quite sad


Yes, sometimes it is the nicest thing in the world to have something to ones self. :)

I hide some chocolate in one of the kitchen cupboards - away from little hands and just for me! How selfish!:) You enjoy your treat - a few Mummy sweets wont do any harm.

Mrs Bun

Ha Ha - you might choke. How many mummies use this excuse I wonder. I used to hide behind the cupboard door where I kept my posh choc and quickly eat it before the Bun's noticed. Who says mummies have to share everything.

Very nice - until you get to that point where you realise your tongue has been lacerated and that you have to keep it hanging out of your mouth for a bit (yes, just like the dog). Definitely not for sharing with children.


Does your dentist love the fact that you love sweets? :-) Mine would be rubbing his hands together with glee!


I love sweets too, and I will hide them from the kiddos - I'm such a bad mom - LOL!!


Ah, the choking defence... you are a cunning Mummy.

Mine have rumbled my secret mini egg stash. Rats.


Ahhhh...... go on, give in!!! Picture their little faces as they sit side by side on your beautiful cosy blanket... hands on knees... waiting... longing... just one mummy pleeeeease!!

Sorry Lucy, that was mean of me, because I know what a soft touch you are really!! I bet you bought them some child friendly ones too!!

Heather Thorp

Indeed they are Mummy sweets, good call on the blackcurrant! My second fave is their fruit rocks, they look so pretty too! I'm glad other people post about this kind of thing!


LOL I have to confess to Mummy Chocolate, late at night when wee one's are sleeping!


Haha ~ Mummy Sweets. I love it!

I miss M&S. There used to be a few in Canada, but I don't think there's even one left open now. I miss Battenburg cake and shrimp cocktail crisps the most. Sigh. Good memories of childhood tea time.


Yummy! I do not blame you one bit for keeping all those sweets to yourself:) Somethings are NOT meant to be shared! Chocolates are NOT meant to be shared in my house and the peeps (ages 16 & 21) have given up asking:) And I'm able to indulge during the nap time of my 2 year old....ENJOY your sweets Lucy!


Sweets are my favourite thing too and I'm particularly partial to a sherbet fruit too!

Naughty, naughty (wagging finger) Oh, well... do a little extra gardening to burn off the calories! They do look awfully tempting...I wonder if I have anything sweet in the cupboard.. Oh, Lucy...now look what you've gone and done! Kate~


I'm not a sweet tooth Lucy, but you're blog is truly delicious. I could eat that crochet !


This is so funny! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this (though I tend to have mummy chocolate). Sadly though my children are now big enough to be more wise, they no longer ask, just wait for me to leave said deliciousness unattended and then pounce. I have become very sneaky about finding hiding places! And licorice, the devil's work? No way, it is one of my favourites, infact I may just have to go and find some very soon...
