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

Looks like the perfect campingholiday to me! Coming year we will go out & buy our own "Connievan"! Hopefully we will be able to find wonderful little campsites as well!


I am now really feeling the need for my own little Connievan! Lovely post Lucy :D


What a fabulous holiday!! It all sounds fantastic and the ice cream sounds delicious!

I'd love to have a campervan but I don't know when we'll have the time and money to buy one and actually go anywhere in it!!


I have to say, that looks like a campsite of my dreams! we aquired our 'van round about the same time as you guys, and it has transformed our family - living in NE Scotland sites are fairly few and far between, not really the choice there is in England, so we do often have to travel further afield -this year we have been pretty unlucky with the weather - you definatly lucked out on that holiday - bliss!


Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh! :-D Jude. xxx


Aww, it sounds and looks lovely. Thanks for sharing, Luce. Hope you have many more happy times in your Connievan.

Never been up to that part of the country- I now know I really do need to get a wiggle on and do it!
Sounds like you had a lovely time.


i enjoyed every word of it.


Oh my, it all looks sooooo fabulous!! I am seriously hankering after a caravan.

Mmmmmm, after your wonderful pictures and descriptions I too am now thinking of our own Connievan in the future. What a shame we don't have such lovely British places to visit here on the westcoast of the U.S. ... :-)

We live near the Lake District and I agree, Hawkshead is a bit odd, although lovely when quiet. A couple of weeks ago we stayed near Dumfries, Rockcliffe, lovely child friendly beaches and quiet! Bliss! xx

So lovely, how lucky (I have had the but I told you to put it in the car! Argument )

It's a beautiful post and a joy to read (as all of your posts are!). Holidays such as this are what my happy childhood memories are made of so I know your children will be forever grateful to you for such wonderful Connievan adventures!

Thank you for taking the extra time to share your holiday with us, giving an insight into snippets of a lovely family holiday.
We have a holiday home on wheels and have spent many many happy days, and weeks over the years with young children and now just as adults.
I confess to having a small tv but hubby has no hobbies and in bad weather he needs some entertainment, I on the other hand just crochet !!!!!
Sooo looking forward to my vanny hols in southwold next week.
love Debbie xxx


Lovely!! Special times


I just love reading your holiday posts, they make me feel all warm and happy


Sounds lovely! We have just bought a folding camper so are hoping to have some happy memories to savour just like yours! X


Your husband J sounds just like my husband J!!! I got quite a chuckle over his snit about the cafe.


Utterly delightful.

As someone who hasn't had any kind of holiday for so many years I love enjoying yours vicariously......and make little mental stashes of delicious things to do when my little family does eventually get to go away. Pure chicken soup for the soul. Thank you


Lucy, that was such a lovely post; I totally felt as if I were there with you all. I really appreciated the reality of your words; the great, the magical, and the downright irritating which all constitute LIFE.

Thank you for taking the time to share with us and, moreover, I really enjoy seeing your little man growing as he is the same age as my little third... as I think we are too ;-)


Looks like you had a lovely weekend Lucy. I'd so love to own a caravan or camper van one day maybe! We've just arrived home from our own weekend in the Lake District (will be updating my flickr with photos later), coincidently visiting Grange over Sands this afternoon before heading home. Our littlies played on that same train! We walked the length of the prom before stopping for a late lunch in a nice little cafe called Butterfingers. Its not sa town we've visited before and we were pleasantly surprised. Also love, love, love the photo of little B with his noodles, i love watching toddlers eat with gusto and make a mess! Take care, K xx


Simply lovely :)


Just had a closer look at your photos in this post and realised i took an almost identical one of the view of the bay at Grange over Sands today

Breathtaking photo's Lucy. I remember when my girls were little we went to the Lake District and stood outside Beatrix Potters home and Rachel was convinced that she could see Mrs Tiggywinkle's washing on the line. That moment always brings me to tears when I think of it. Lots of lovely memories for you with your family.
