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

Lovely post Lucy. Today was officially my first "me" day, I used to work 5 days a week but after over 2 years of it I finally have Fridays off. It feels SO fantastic to have a whole day to do whatever I need to do and fit in a bit of hooky time as my yarn stockpile is getting out of control.

PS - baked your lovely Banana bread recipe for my little boys, they loved it!


What a lovely post and a lovely day to match. So great to think how much you're going to be able to look back on this blog in future years and have such a wonderful reminder of your time with the little ones! Love & sunny happy wishes to you and your family x


Oh how I long for those days. My little people are grown, and almost flown. I am not at work caring for my youngest fledgling who is in a dark place. The sun is shining and he is sleeping, what a healer sleep is, and my first WIP in many years is waiting for its edge. My edge is a bit frayed, but blogland is healing me; I am off with the help off BunnyMummy to finish a cot blanket. My biggest bird is in a baby race with her biological clock!!


Lucy- it's looks like you both had a grand day! It's amazing what spring does for the soul. Those pinwheels and their colours make my heart happy- so thanks for the smile!


All about you is wonderful: photos, histories, works...You are an inspiration for me.

Thanks, specially for the colors!


Looks like a lovely day out! My two love going on the train too :-)


"Damn, I slipped up there, I suddenly felt most desperate for a cup of tea when I spied her pouring smugly from her flask."


Glad you enjoyed your day.


Thanks for doing your job so passionately. I miss living in England (Sheffield)sometimes and your pics remind me of it a lot. You capture what i use to love to look at, specially when the sun shines!

I love 'whimsy',especially in the garden and your windmills of color made me smile.
I have an overgrown cottage type style garden nestled in the beautiful hills of the Strezlecki ranges in Victoria ,Australia.

What a beautiful day you had with your little one. These are the moments to truly cherish and remember.

Would love for you to take a peek at my garden of whimsy if you like, my email is kirchner@dcsi.net.au

Go gently, thanks again for a lovely post Lucy.

Such simple, happy pleasures. You make life sound so easy and uncomplicated. I hope that when I have children, I can enjoy them as much and spend as much time with them as you do with yours. You're such an inspiration :)


What a lovely outing with Little B. When you said you'd treated yourself I was expecting new clothes but you will smile everyday at those windmills!

What a lovely post, about a lovely day.

It was a really good day to be out in the fresh air yesterday! I spent the whole day in my garden..bliss!

The picture of Little B's shoes made me feel all wistful, Oh it doesn't seem long since I enjoyed picking a new pair of 'doodles' for my daughter in the Spring! Unfortunately a 9 year old does not want doodles anymore!!!

Lucy, I like your hands. They look like my hands. Sweet.
What a good day and I so agree with you about being an employee. I stayed home with our babies and have only been teaching school for eight years. I miss my home days very much and I KNOW I was much better suited for home life, but alas and alak, now is now for me and I do like eleven year old children and their amazing brains.
What a great idea to take Little B on a train ride! Genius! I remember my kindergarten year and a train ride we took. I can still see an elderly woman eating a delicious looking chicken salad sandwich. Yummy.


that is a lovely sweet, bright post, but then all your posts are great and i eagerly await the next one. how i would love to have a day to do just that and start a blog, must find time soon to do this. Have a great weekedn D :)


Hi Lucy,
I discovered you about 3 weeks ago and have not done any housework since !! as all spare time is taken up with reading your old posts.

As a working mum I am very very envious of your stay at home life. (sigh!)

Let me say you are an inspiration! I find myself thinking about your posts when I am stressed and think "what would Lucy do?" So I have a cup of tea and count my blessings. I think I am becoming a nicer / kinder mum too as I try to take the time to enjoy my family instead of rushing around mad all the time - I am following your example - and for that I thank you.
p.s. I am on my first ripple following your pattern and am bringing colour and comfort into my home

I really love to read about your colorfull life.


How very wise you are to cherish this special, special time with your sweet children! Mine is grown now, but your post brought back the sweetest memories of days we spent enjoying every simple thing as she grew from moment to moment. How I am so very thankful for those days at home being a mommy :) Love reading your blog... I am a faithful follower! You encourage and inspire me, and add a smile to my days... Thanks so much :)


I just love your posts about the day in and day out simple details of your day. I find them so cheerful, encouraging and soothing!


When my sons where little, I was a stay at home mum. But then they went to school, I started to work during schooltime.My sons are now 17 and 19 years old and I work 6 days a week delivering mail, because big boys cost a lot of money. They are nice young men. Enjoy your time with your kids, when they are little. Before you know it,they leave home.
I like your blog very much.


What a fun excursion! I so remember when it was just the little one (one or the other) at home with just me and the fun little things we would do. I miss those days. I do miss my little people very much! Now they are 8 and 10 and not quite so little anymore, but we still have fun days and excursions!Love your bright windmills you bought!

Sounds (and looks!) like a fantastic day!
