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

Hi Lucy, popped over here to link to your granny patches and found another gorgeous post. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful walk.
I know your little people will remember their childhood with joy.

I'm so impressed that Little B climbed the Crag, a fantastic achievement for a 3 year old and well done to J for chivvying you all along and preparing the picnic. Liz x


Love these posts, I feel like I was with you on your walk. I have been painting bluebells all week before they go, ssshhhhh, i'm going to be on the telly, really, the BBC, painting bluebells, magical xxxx


I do love reading your out and about post, amazing photo's as always, you really do live in a stunning part of the world, and bluebells too my favourite such a treat. Being unwell and unable to walk far these days I so love reading these post it's like going on a hike from the comfort of my Sofa. xx

I really enjoyed reading this Lucy and it is a walk we haven't tried although we live in the area (we will now though!). What brought a tear to my eye about your blog was how time does really fly, I am however thankful my 16 year old still enjoys a good hike.....


ah bless B, was his power up?
And, oh memories of work-folk and their tales of going down 'tree. ha. yes.


Oh it is lovely to make these memories with the little people. My littlest boy is four and he is just the same on a hike (except he would have been asking for his picnic right from the start). I can feel the pride and the energy and the determined little legs. They are just adorable these little boys are they not? Glad you had such a great day. And a man who makes picnics, oh lucky, lucky you!


What a lovely tale of your walk, very impressed with little B, what a big walk for such a little one!
I love the sense of achievement at the end of a steep walk, I climbed Kinder Scout with a friend last year and it was a great feeling to be that high up looking down.

Building childhood memories is an enormous responsibility, their childhood really does fly by, we as parents have to make as much time as possible for them, exploring the great outdoors and family holidays are a must!

The House of Jones

Wow, good effort family Lucy, especially from Little B - what a trouper! Love going on these days out with you - I don't know your part of the country at all, and am enjoying exploring it from the comfort of my sofa :) Maybe one day with my own little legs!

I just love your days out and photos to accompany them. They make me terribly homesick for Yorkshire where my hubby comes from and maybe later this year we will be there, so I look forward to your posts.
Also love your crochet and am going to try those triangles, I think.

Angela-Southern U.S.A.

Oh yes, a very precious responsibility! We mothers, celebrate and mourn each milestone. What a huge accomplishment for L.B! Beautiful outing and wonderful memories.


I'm apporaching 'the sunset years', hah, not as active as I used to be, and I tell you, the memories of our family outings, camping and boating adventures offer real solace when things get dicey, as life has a way of doing. SO YAY to J and to you for making a point of doing things together outdoors that doesn't involve electronics. These memories will be golden to your kids when you are gone, and will help them raise their own children!


Argh, what is going on with the seasons! Bluebells should be over and done with! Waily waily! Do you think we'll get a delayed autumn? No, I don't think so either.... Booooooo hoooooo waaaaaaah! Well done little B, I would have said no and I'm 37 (and lazy!) XD


So beautiful !


Loving these outdoor posts of yours :) It's making me really look forward to our holiday to Appletreewick in a few weeks.

And they will remember it....we are dragging our (not-so) little people out camping for 3 days this week, no electricity so no PS3, laptop, games etc, just family fun, fresh air and exercise. even though they are teenagers now they still enjoy it, and there are frequent laughing references to 'do you remember when we...?' Precious times do go into their memories. Keep on persevering xx


This post brought back memories of treks up Rivington Pike when I lived in England.
Good for little B in making it all the way to the top. Also, it was great that J was so enthusiastic about this that he fired everyone else up and prepared the picnic all by himself.

Teresa Kasner

What a nice hike for all of you. I agree, it's our responsibility to fill our children's formative years with as much adventure as possible. Good for you!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Yes, you are making wonderful memories for your children and I agree that it's a very important responsibility, one I also take very seriously. :)


Lovely special family time x

Chel C

Yes, building up their childhood memories is so important for us parents. I'm still trying to add them for my two teenagers and the grunts and sighs when I suggest them turning off their various social media 'stuff' are now winning. Mind you, I am managing to get them out THREE times this week, so I'm winning this week! The Crag views are amazing and well done Little B!! and Lucy for also doing a 10 minute piggy back! :)

Sara Jenkins

Wonderful memories for all. :)
But I almost got vertigo looking at your photos!
Enjoy the rest if half term. x

I don't know which I enjoy most, the gorgeous splashes of color or the beautiful scenery. I look forward to each and every post! Your blog has me planning a trip to England next summer. I'm a Beatrix Potter (and MISS READ) fan, so the English countryside, especially the lake country, is on my bucket list! Thanks for sharing!


What a lovely day out you all had. Beautiful photos Lucy. My 'little one' is 7 now but he still sometimes scores a piggy back ride up to bed at night. We both love it.
