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.

What nice mother-daughter time! I have three boys so every now and then get one of them to join me on outings but it's not quite the same. Love that type of seaside weather.

claire coffey

your post is so redolent of nostalgic seaside holidays...I loved to read it, and LL's eye-shot is stunning, as I'm sure she is in entirety!
Your unintentional typo did make me laugh out loud though...I'm sure you meant that your breakfast was 'scrummy' rather than 'scummy'! please note this isn't a criticism, it just made me smile so much, our busy typing fingers work slower than our speeding brains, and the results can bring us much amusement! wonderful pictures and post as always xx


Wow, what a gorgeous place! It seems as though you had a lovely time. I just love the bright, pastel colors of the buildings in Lyme Regis; I would love to visit there someday. :)


I wonder if she will live by the sea one day? I wonder if she will yearn for visits back to the Dales...?

Shirley Davis

I enjoyed this blog so much. Thank you, Lucy.


Lovely post, by the way. I went to Lyme Regis only once on a very cold and windy February day. I think I need to go back and take another look.

Beautiful Lucy. Your girl is precious ans I'm glad you treasurw every moment with her. I too have a girl with grey green eyes xxx


....but Lucy, did you have a round of Crazy Golf while you were at Lyme? An absolute must in our family and lovely views across the bay. This is usually followed by a pasty, eaten sitting on the front keeping an eye out for seagulls - one did manage to take my lunch one day! I've just finished a ripple blanket - thank you soooo much for the pattern, and I have in my excited little mitts a parcel from the Wool Warehouse containing the chunky wool for a bag and cushion.....

Looks lovely, we've booked our first trip to Dorset this summer and will be staying in West Bay, hopefully the weather will be a little kinder in July!


Your post brings back memories of our visit to Lyme last year when out from Australia. Magical town whatever the weather. We particularly enjoyed the fossil hunting tour on the beach and wandering around the quiet little lanes.


Beautiful post!! I love your blog, thanks for sharing! Love, Clara

It's all so very lovely! Thanks for sharing, so glad it was a wonderful memory making trip. I nearly squealed when I saw the pink house with the aqua door LO-VE it! Happy Easter weekend!


Hi Lucy, this post was an absolute delight. Thank you so much for sharing with us in your wonderful way. So many gorgeous photos and touching words.

Lovely post; fabulous pictures and tender nostalgic words. super. Karen xx


I feel like I've just had a trip to Lyme myself, thank you so much! Actually I was there in the autumn last year but our walk was a 3 hour long fossil walk on the beach. It was interesting and informative but absolutely exhausting. Your walk around the town sounds much nicer to me!
And I vividly remember my first grownup paintbox too, proper watercolours, not childish ones. I'm sure your daughter will always remember painting pebbles on the beach with her Mum and it will be a treasured memory.


Sounds like some wonderful days, I love little lady's painted pebble, such perfect colours


Dear Lucy,

I adore watching your photos.

Kind regards, Daniela from Argentina


I love Lyme too, and in particular the High Street. I still have a painted pebble, very similar to LL's, that I made when I was a child. My grab varnished it, and the colours are still bright today. X
PS LL's eyes look stunning in your photo. Such dark lashes.

Jeanette in Illinois, USA

Oh my goodness, Lucy!!!
What a precious post - your time together with Little Lady absolutely made my heart go flutter, flutter and melty all at the same time...
You truly have a gift for words that soothes the soul like a gentle salve of happiness! Thank you from the bitty bottom of my heart for this vicarious trip to the coast. I so miss the ocean now that I am land-locked in the Midwest. I am so grateful er have a rather hugs lake in our yard, for the view of the water calms the spirit.
The painted rock is the most lovely memento, I see the apple and tree are akin.
Hugs and love,


Thank you, Lucy. Like your other readers, I feel like I've been on a wee day trip alongside you. I lived by the sea for a few years, and the sound of the seagulls still haunts me. I don't need it to be sunny, I just need to smell the sea and hear the seagulls and I feel like I've come home. Gorgeous houses, boats and blue sky days are a bonus. Keep enjoying those precious moments with your girl; they pass in the blink of an eye. By the way, the seaside ripple blanket is coming on a treat!

Hi Lucy.. it was lovely to read of your wonderful day in a special place by the sea with your daughter. I was pleased that you gave us a glimpse of her with her pretty one eye. :-) I'd love to see the kids in your blog some day. We're heading off to our Oregon coast trip in 4 days! The Pacific ocean beckons me. Your daughter has inspired me to take my Winsor & Newton paint box with me! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Oh what a wonderful post (they all are, but, you know ... each one brings new delight) ... I got a lump in my throat when you compared your girly's eyes to the beautiful sea :-) Too sweet. Looking forward to Part 2 !

Gillian McM

Thank you so much for taking me with you on this lovely trip. I enjoyed it so much, and the ice cream was delicious!

Jackie Farrow

Thank you for sharing your day out, made me want to be there.

Anna Maria Quagliero

le descrizioni delle fotografie accompagnano piacevolmente chi le guarda ed è come essere lì a passeggiare sulla riva del mare o nelle vie del paese fra le belle case colorate ! Grazie per aver condiviso questo bel viaggio nel Dorset !
Happy Easter !
