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.

Lovely photos.looks likea lovely day was had by all!


It's been a lovely day here in the South too - what a treat to feel the sun on your face. I wish I'd taken my camera out with me, but hopefully there'll be lots more sunny days on their way. Enjoy your week!

Quite excited to be first to comment.(Perhaps) Lovely post as usual. I do love all your photos. It's so nice to be able to keep such a good record of your life. I have a large draw full of photos and no idea when they were taken over the last 30 years, have. Have to guess how old my children are!


ooooh that looks lovely! We had an exciting day of ... disconnecting the shower cables from the circuit box thingy. Woo!

Beautiful view from atop. And I love the look of the mossy rocks...very cool.

Lovely day here in Teeside too. I remember that park from my childhood. One of my Mum's best friends from her college days in Ilkley lived on one of the streets that run down hill to it. We always used to visit the park when we went for a weekend visit. I used to love her house because it had a cellar and an attic like yours, so different from the 1960's boxes where we lived (and still live). I used to love going along the river too and playing on the pebble beaches. Happy days. Thanks for reminding me.


I grew up in Silsden. I love when you post photos like todays on your blog. It's a little glimpse of a landscape I miss so much. I had many happy hours playing at the park in Ilkley.


Sounds like a great day out. I absolutely adore that shadowy tree picture ~ it truly is beautiful :O)xx


Beautiful pictures!

Is Ilkley the one mentioned in the old song about Ilkley Moor? My English grandmother used to sing it to us.
I am today sorting out patterns and wool for something to work on when I am in New Zealand - visiting family there this week . . . such happiness!
We are having autumn season now but the temp. will still be about 24C today; the nights are getting cooler though, lovely to pull up a quilt - summer has been so very long here in Woy Woy, Australia!


Happy is nice: so glad there is happiness to enjoy and be shared! Blessings Lucy!

I just had to look on Google maps to find the street we used to stay on. It was Lister street. I really did love that house. Must visit Ilkley again soon. I have a pal in Addingham so at least I have an excuse.

I hope you all had hats on if you were going up Ilkley moor! Beautiful pictures. Looks like a lovely day!


thank you so much for sharing the sun and scenery :)
you are like a lovelier version of enid blyton, your children must appreciate you loads - their lives are being filled with so many happy memories.

What a fantastic shadow picture. Glad you had such a fun day. I love spontaneous fun - its always sweeter.


Just love that green rock - my favourite and my best! We've been springing around down here too.


Looks lovely. Love your shot of the tree shadow. Wasn't the weather great? It almost felt warm here in Leeds. We last went to Ilkley between Christmas and New Year - it was cold and grey. I think a Spring time visit is in order! xx

Oh.. looks like the sunny days we had a few of this week made it around the world to you.. and now we're in for a week of rainy days! I'm working on my Teddy Bear #3 in mint green cotton.. only 3 more to go to get one done for each grandchild. Say, I'm doing a give-away for a pair of my sterling silver earrings if you want to pop over and leave a comment. I washed some of my alpaca that I was given.. a lovely silver grey. Can't wait for it to dry and try to spin it. ((hugs)), Teresa :-) from Oregon USA.


What wonderful photos. It sounds like you had the perfect day!


Gosh I love Yorkshire so much! <3


ooh the tree shadow looks like the picture on your newly done shelves! great effect

It was such a beautiful day today and I too was so glad to be able to get out too. Your photos definitely make me want to visit Yorkshire. I'm intrigued by your references to Connievan too! :)
