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'm sure they are making memories to treasure, you never forget your childhood holidays, lovely photo's.


Family time is the most precious gift you can give your children and they certainly have that in abundance. Lovely, happy memories for you all. Liz x


They will certainly remember the good things. I'm sure of it , I do
Lovely pictures


I agree totally with you Lucy. We don't 'do' the 'big' things but try and instill in our children how to enjoy & appreciate the beautiful country we live in. And now we have a canine addition to the family, long walks in the countryside are a real family treat!! Who doesn't love the sight of two children running round the fields along with one happy puppy!! And they DO appreciate the simple things in life.


It's so important to enjoy the simple pleasures, as your children grow up they no longer fancy collecting pebbles on a beach. Sarah

The children will remember all of it fondly I am sure. I remember getting the backs of my knees so sunburnt that I had to walk back to the car holding a wet towel against my legs - and I'm OK!

Love to read your posts Lucy. Jo x


Big things are nearly always bought things,and nothing can replace the simple pleasures in life; after all most of us oldies were brought up like that, cos there there were no big things! my kids were brought up to enjoy our walks and picnics, and my daughter's children now love camping, country bike rides, and sky watching. x


Simple pleasures and love are the best gift all Lucy .... lovely post xx Joy xx


The best pleasures of all, I think. Only one of mine has been on a plane, and it was when he was a baby so he doesn't remember it. We love the same kind of trips you do. I would have really enjoyed both the aviary and the guinea pigs, that kind of thing is exactly my speed. :)

Sara Jenkins

Best of all they are with their mum and dad, having fun! Nothing more needed.
Have a great weekend.

I almost feel like I've had a little holiday too ! Especially as we have visited some of the same places. The view from the top of the hill in the tropical gardens can only be described a true wow moment. Your pictures and words capture the true spirit of a proper family holiday.Lovely.

Lucy your photographs are just stunning - I really want to visit after seeing all of these. We have such a beautiful country with so much to see and do, thank you for sharing your part of this Lucy. Always so lovely to share your posts.
Lots of love as always


Oh it all looks wonderful Lucy. Especially liking the love birds and guinea pigs. I never get quite as much sea as I would like on holiday either. I have a child who doesn't like sand! I've heard that gazing at the sea releases some chemical or other in the brain that relaxes you and makes you feel happy. I can quite believe it. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Simple pleasures are the most treasured. So very lovely thanks for sharing.

My most treasured childhood memories are of days on the beach, either here at home or at the beach all of 10 miles away. Nothing better than soggy sandwiches (tomatoes with something made lovely soggy sarnies)laced with sand, bottles of lemonade for us kids and then going for an ice-cream - sheer bliss.


Lovely photos as mementos of a great holiday.


Those are the best kinds of holidays you can take with your kids, in my opinion anyways. My favourite memories from childhood were not museums, or theme parks or expensive glitz and glam, they are times spent with all of the people that I love doing absolutely nothing in particular.


They will have wonderful memories!

Tammy Chrzan

That view... WOW... It's absolutely breathtaking and amazing... It reminds me of when the planes fly over the Atlantic and the first views seen from the plane window over England are ones like these... the first few on your post.
You really did have an amazing holiday!
Have a great weekend, I love everything you put on facebook, such delicious crochet!

Dorset is a dream.

Elisa Melan

Thank you so much for your willingness to share the beauty of your country with us. I now need to add yet another part of England to visit!


I didn't get a summertime vacation this year, so I'm really enjoying yours! Thx for sharing. Hugs, MO


Thank you for sharing your holiday pictures.
They are beautiful!
Lovely birds.

Vanessa Greenaway

Thank you for the gorgeous posts. We love Dorset and were there in May for a week and are due there again in October.
We live in Cornwall and so we are so blessed to have gorgeous scenery on our doorstep too.. I try to make the happiest and fondest memories for my son and when I ask him of his favourite things that he has done - they are always the simple pleasures! I want to bottle that enthusiasm for a simple life for him forever... your posts give me hope!! Thank you! x
