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

Glad to hear you have been enjoying the sunshine! The yarny get together sounds like a perfect way to pass an evening.

Hello there Lucy, you are lucky to have had a few days of it. Today was our first real day of sunshine and it's been delightful. Let's hope there's plenty more. It was the warmest March, wettest April and probably the coldest May. Lets hope it's the sunniest June. Especially as we are camping for the Jubilee weekend!

Lovely,lovely post again Lucy. I was thinking of you today when I was playing "in and out the dusty bluebells/Scottish windows" depending on where you are from with a reception class I was covering. It was so blisssful being out of the classroom in the beautiful sunshine. It actually felt like May. Love Penny L xx


I am glad you got the sunshine back Lucy!


Lovely to read your "perky" post and share your appreciation of the simple but wonderful things of life which you make seem even better.
Look forward to seeing the Ring o' Roses!
Keep smiling!

oooh it's been gorgeously hot up North hasn't it - and I for one am loving it.
Hook, pimms, cake? sounds like a perfect combo.

I used to love when my boys ripped their clothes off and played in a bucket of water for hours. Now I can't get them near water, and defo not naked!
And our water fights make me nervous these days...
(still fun though)
happy days

Much better than the last couple of weeks! Hurrah. What are the chances of it staying sunny for the Jubilee weekend?! Glad your feeling "perkier" :)


I hope the sunshine stays for a while! It does make a difference. I love crocheting with friends! Looking forward to seeing the Ring of roses too!


How the sun gladdens the heart:) Make the most of the lovely weather and the "perkiness"-tidying can wait!

Truly Myrtle

Sounds heavenly! The sun found us today :) Yippee! The world is right again!


Love your perky post Lucy!
Can't wait to see your ring of roses.I have been making them too, thank you so much for the fabulous tutorial.I did try to send you an email after I donated but it keeps coming back to me, I must've got it wrong, so I will thank you here instead.I really have enjoyed making the cute little roses, although I have crocheted roses before, your tutorial is fabulous and easy, you explain everthing so clearly, so thank you so much!

The sun actually shone in my neck of the woods for the first time in a long time today and you are so right Lucy what a difference it makes to one's mood. I was able to do so many gardening things that have been neglected and like you I can't wait to plant up some lovely annuals in my patio pots. your girly evening sounds perfect :)

Oh, I can just picture Little B enjoying his splashing! What a relief to have sunshine! I have been enjoying my walks to and from pre-school too and my littlies have definitely loved The Outside again - rediscovering the sandpit and laying out on the grass - wonderful!!! (Even if I do have to hoover up buckets of sand when they've gone to bed!) Soak it up Lucy and drink it in! xx


Gotta love solar power....
Can't wait to see the stripey-rosy wreath, I imagine it will be unmistakingly Attic24-ish....


Love your blog but don't usually comment but I just had to when I saw the title of this post. For the last few days I have been imagining what the follow on post to "Droopy" would be and yep you guessed it - I just knew it would be called "Perky". Think I must be turning telepathic in my old age!! Please keep posting cos I love reading about your antics.xx


part of my budget/health march this year was actually to plan healthy lunch meat, instead of not having anything but dinner leftovers for lunch. healthy lunch meat has permutations, you understand, from homemade spam (ham loaf) to salmon loaf (doable with frozen, not canned, $almon), to HUMMUS made from own soaked peas, pressure cooked in 10 minutes, with a BUCKET O GARLIC, yeah baby.

What a little sunshine will do for the soul! So glad it's looking up,can't wait fo the Ta-dah.Here's to another sunny day!

Maggie Cawthorn

Your perkiness is contagious ... so hope the sun keeps it up till at least after the weekend. I miss being able to be in the garden with a little one and the simple pleasure of some water play! Nice to relive it with you.

Lynne Gill

Oh yeah, with you on the sunshine front. My friend Kate used to say 'Listen, you can hear, all over Britain heads are popping out of gas ovens' meaning of course, that life was looking up for people who had been feeling really down with the gloomy weather.

We certainly had sunshine today here in Norfolk, but it was still a tad chilly, couldn't believe the news when they said it was the warmest day this year; I thought we had that in March!

You do find some great floral bargains, Lucy, they are lovely.


I couldn't agree more, today was our first day of sunshine and it was just wonderful, really does lift the spirits.
What a lovely picnic bag.
Time spent with friends is special time.

It's been absolutely beautiful here too, what a difference some sun and blue sky makes! I know exactly what you mean about solar power!
I'm v v envious of your group, I tried a knitting group at the beginning of the year but it was all children, school and au pairs! Not happy banter!!!!


Sunshine makes everything better! I am sooo affected by the weather and I've finally got my perkiness back too! :) Looking forward to your ring-o-roses :) xxx

Val Johnson

Hello Lucy,
My name is Val....I live in Australia...I am so glad that I have found your beautiful Attic 24 by following a link which lead me to your page. I was wanting to know how to crochet and Ta da....you were the chosen one for me to learn this craft....I love your photo's and the colour that you capture....and a snapshot in to your life....soooo inspiring.....x


An excellent level of perkiness, you get 9.5/10. ;)


I am so glad to hear that your weather is improving. Here in Australia we seem to have skipped straight from summer to winter. My house is always so cold and ti is dark when I leave to go to work and dark when I get home. I will have to live vicariously through you and your blog over the next few months to ensure that my perkiness does not turn droopy!
