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

Your blogs always make me smile and give me lots of inspiration with our mini cottage. I've started to make bunting for our garden after looking at some pics of yours. Your photos are always so bright and cheery.
You are a real inspiration, thank you for taking the time to share.


Try Poachpods, Lakeland sell them and they are the BEES KNEES for poached eggs. :-)


*big Hugs from France ;o) love you so much!!!
Hope you get my mail with big thanks to you for our mags exchange???, bisoussssssss*******


Your weekends sound like mine ;-) loverly


I enjoy your rambles, I love poached eggs, I must buy some bright and lovely smelling flowers today (Monday morning here in Sydney) to begin my week . Thanks for the inspiration and the bursts of colour.


Dear Lucy,
your blog is amazing. Just can't wait every day to read your lines, watch the pictures and smile about the wonderful flowers...

Cold *brr* greetings from germany!


Mmmm poached eggs. I think I might have to make Eggs Benedict now. It's been so cold recently, with and without snow, makes me want to hibernate by the fire, reading, crocheting, eating cake and chocolate and doing not a lot. Slowing down and having home time. It's a winter thing. We'll more active when the sun comes out.


Thank you too. For making the sad crucial moments of my every day life a bit more colourful!AriadnefromGreece!


Ramble away all you like Lucy ~ it still makes for a very good read! Hope you enjoy your bed, your ripple and your hot water bottle :O)xx

Spring is coming dear one. x


Got you Lucy, got you! February does that to us all, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow. I need a change of scene at this time of year. It does help change the pace, x

I've been feeling much the same lately and have spent much of my day today trying to finish a blanket for my middle boy, unfortunatly I will have to venture out tomorrow and buy a few more balls of wool just to finish the rainbow edge,I may also buy myself some buds of my own as I'm in need of a little flowery sunniness. Make the most of these days before you know it your little ones will be grown, it's so wonderful that you have this record, thanks Lucy for the babbling :)


please don't move house NOW, I need you here!
Will you be at hooky tomorrow? xx

Thank you so much for doing what you do, I think my world would be greyer without your lovely blog . Also you have introduced me to so many other lovely people who enrich my life so much because they take so much time and trouble to write about their lives. I now have so many lovely people who i check in on when i feel like some inspiration. Thank you xxxxxxx


I'm feeling rather similar, but I think it might just be time of year. Soon the sap will be rising and we'll be rushing at life full tilt again.
And yes, you are a natural homemaker.


We are having a 'slow' time too in our house, I have to force myself not to feel guilty about PJ days. I ask my youngest 'Have you had a nice day today?' If he says 'yes' that is good enough for me. Your poached egg picture looks delicious, I have chickens and they lay an egg each day, I love poached eggs. I googled 'How to poach and egg in the Microwave' and followed a tutorial, the result was the most spectacular and messy explosion, my youngest loved it! He thought it was hilarious. It will be water and a splash of vinegar for me everytime from now on! :) x


I know what you mean that 'need to be doing something' buzz that occurs then evaporates. Some where I read it was called - downtime stress syndrome. Some days you feel like you are being left behind as life goes on - hang in there, it does get better and easier when the days are longer and the weather warmer.

os seus posts são sempre muito especiais e inspiradores, também é muito bom saber que existem pessoas como você que agradecem pela vida e que são tão felizes.


Lucy, you are not rambling, you are Amazing! Attic 24 is my fave blog - nothing compares xxoo


I'm not sure why a new blog post by a woman I've never met should make me go "ooh, new post," but it just does. On the surface our daily lives, apart from the crochet, are very different. I think your blog manages to capture the common thread in the lives of your blog followers; from motherhood to shelves of doom to eggs. You entertain us and reassure us at the same time. No mean feat.


You write so well about the feelings we all have from day to day, about the things that give us such sweet pleasure and those things that irritate from time to time!
I enjoy all your pictures and words! There is nothing like the feeling of a happy home and the atmosphere created within.


Nothing in particular for me either. Just a Family Day with all my sisters, brother, my kids and theirs, my mum...and so glad to be again at our house, My Home, with my husband and the children for a late dinner...I understand the meaning of "home". Now, mine is a little more coloured (thanks, Lucy!!!!!)

I love poached eggs and, as you probably found out, they're quite easy to make. Daffodils are one of my favourite flowers...gorgeous pics!

Have a great week!
