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

Sounds a perfect day despite the weather! Especially great when you have a flask of coffee, chocolate pub lunch to look forward to! The mary Janes made me laugh - I had very stiff Doc Marten's on my first walking holiday - not great! Fab photos as usual - going to look up the fairy stories now - the waterfall reminded me of a place in Australia we saw when backpacking, with aborgine legends of water snakes and fertility, or something like that...eek!!


Not a chocolate pub lunch - though that might be tempting...chocolate and a pub lunch I meant!


With all those people clambering about the place, you can see why various organisations are worried about the effect walkers have on our landscape. Apparently they cause more erosion etc., than mountain bikers, due to the sheer volume presumably. It's many a year since I was in the area, it is truly spectacular. Thank you for sharing your Sunday walk. Husband and I do the same thing on a smaller scale on a Wednesday!


Sounds and looks all so beautiful. Once again my mum enjoyed seeing her native Yorkshire yet again. Thank you for sharing.


Beautiful shots!


Malham is stunning, not sure if your children are old enough for Harry Potter but in the second to last film they camp on the limestone pavement at the top of the gorge
Sounds like you had a pretty perfect day out


Very beautiful Lucy.. You must come to the US someday,you would love Yellowstone park,and all the beauty of the west.


I really enjoyed this post! Dave's dad lives near the Dales too so we have done a few walks around Malham cove and tarn and also walked to Janets Foss and done Gordale Scar. I scrambled up it in wellies and it wasn't too tricky at all - I didn't have an audience thankfully! I've never owned walking boots either, I find them too restrictive - I only walk in wellies, flip flops or barefoot, that's how I'm most comfortable :)

Love love love the country side, I may never see in person so I love you pics and ramblings. Thanks for the walk...


Lovely images from a perfect day - glad your weekly outdoor plan is taking root!
I notice your "tig" is the "tag" of my New England childhood.

Oh my gosh!!!!! How beautiful!!! I just adore the terraine!!!! It has been too long since I have seen it!!! Next year I hope!!!


How absolutely divine, and what a brilliant way to spend a day with your family.


Gourgeous sceneries! Thank you for sharing your day-trip with us, helps to relieve my travel fever a bit. :)

What a lovely day. I had forgotten about the word mizzle . Lovely pictures brought back memories. Keep on sharing please. Are you able to visit Asgarth falls. Would love to see it. I have a photo of me as a five year old and my grandad at the foot of the falls.


What beautiful scenery! I adore nature and walks like this. How lovely you get to do this every Sunday. Such a good thing to do for your family


How lovely to have such gorgeous scenery on your doorstep :) I went to Malham Cove for a A-level Geography field trip years ago. I'd love to go back and visit. Inspired by your blog, we're trying to make the most of getting out somewhere with the kids each weekend too! Happy Bank Holiday!


Beautiful day! So lush and green. We finally have spring here in Western Canada but the blooming is just starting so we're still pretty brown. Can't wait for my world to turn green!

What great memories you are creating for your children. :)

I also went to Malham on a field trip, when I was at Charlotte Mason Teacher Training College in Ambleside in the 1960s. Long time ago!


Sounds like a lovely day!

Our weekend was a total wash out(toad-strangler)!5.5 inches of rain and counting..So thanks for taking us along on yours,beautiful.I've been on some of those"mild scramble" hikes myself.(I think they all lie!)lol Love the little stone bridge.The fairy falls reminds me of one we have here,a great swimming spot,but v-e-r-y cold!


Soooo very beautiful and green, that colour green is something I miss in Western Australia, our greens get sunburnt so very quickly.
The 3 months that I spent in England were April to early July, I remember seeing the glorious green grass, leaving the path to walk on it and being very surprised at how soft and spongy it was underfoot.
Happy exploring

Such a beautiful place! I am so interested in those stories of fairies at Janets Foss. I will have to Google that!


Just wonderfull places! I would like visit there too.


You have so many places to visit. Enjoy your time with children, they grow up so fast. Then you have to wait for grandbabies, and don't have quite the same engery as now. Would love to come see your country and visit your studio. Time to get ready for golfing, have a great day.


This Anglophile stuck in South Carolina (a nice place itself but not England) loves the feeling of wandering around with you and your family. Thank you!
