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

I can taste the salt on my lips! :)

oh my...what a wonderful way to start my day!
thank you so much for sharing!


Thanks for sharing! Lovely pictures and tales of your holiday...


ahh so good, thank you for sharing, you've made me quite envious I love pottering about the coast and harbour, love indoor days we have a huge bag of 2ps on my little peeps bookshelf that comes out every holiday, love sitting surrounded by family while I crack on with knitting or crochet. bliss


I love WestBay and that cafe - been to both several times on our hols - sadly no plans to visit in 2012 though :(

Can't beat a play on the pennyfalls on a wet day - appeals to all ages :)

Linda from Boston

I want to live in Dorset.............


Lovely. I can almost smell the sea and taste the salty wind. You are such a talented writer. I haven't been to England for years now and your posts make me feel nostalgic for all those pleasurable moments (seaside cafes, brightly coloured boats, seagulls, children gathering shells and stones...). I love love reading about all that. My children are about the same age as yours, just a bit younger, but I think I'm going to buy a game of Scrabble too, and perhaps (a bit later) a Monopoly. Thank you, as always, for sharing.

Glad to see the rain didn't stop play! I have a horror of modern 'amusement' arcades but crikey, a pounds worth of coppers each will hardly break the bank and it did look fun.

We weren't a particularly gaming family either - but when the 'larger' extended family got together all the cousins would play monopoly - 2 hours?? Phwt! You aint seen nothin' like our whole -day marathons! (granted we were slightly older!)

Oh the boats, the boats, I love those views. Here in Norfolk we do see a few(!) but my probably-never-to-be-realised dream of moving to a coastal village in Wales or Northumberland would satisfy my soul! Great post, Lucy kep those piccies coming!


Thank you for sharing. Your pictures are so lovely. Dorset seems to be so beautiful.
Regards from Brittany, France


Sounds super so far, I have loved all of your pictures. I live about as far from the sea as it's possible to be in the UK so don't often get to the coast but I love it so much!

I'm looking forward to day 3 and 4 now!


Beautiful photos, I really love the third one with the patch of sun falling on the headland/houses, it's quite magical.


What do you think of the new Cafe?! We really like it - love what they've done with the outside space but still cute inside too. It's so fun seeing your pictures of the harbour- we love the same boats! There's a yellow one I've got my eye on at the moment too - I'll take a pic for you x


Ahhh bliss! I too can smell the sea just reading this, so keep them coming! ;-) We're off to the sea within less then a month, can't wait! xxxx


Aaahh lovely jolly holly pictures :) My hubby and I are board game lovers, scrabble and monopoly are our faves! xxx

Lynn Dudley-Taylor

Absolutely heavenly! Can't wait to get back to the UK in the summer for some of the same, thank you!!!


Gorgeous pictures, glad you are back and that you all ad a great time :)
Nothing quite beats the sea air , I just came back myself from a weekend away by the sea .

Looking forward to tomorrows post :)

Have a great day !




Oh it looks lovely and cosy at Lady B's! Maggie xx



Lovely blog. Sometimes the simple things are the best. We always used to go rock-pooling when I was little and then when my boys were young we did that again, you can never get bored, there's so much to discover. Looking forward to your next report, Thank you for cheering me up. Val x
