About Me

  • 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

Sigh. Are there any homes for sale in your area? Just beautiful; rainy, cloudy weather and all. :~)
(ps. Sorry to be loading your inbox with comments, I've been behind on my blog reading and I'm getting caught up. The only problem is, is that I can't tear myself away from your blog to get caught up on the others. It's just so wonderful. :~))


I love the second picture aswell. who is the illustrator? It would make a fab fabric picture rather like Janet Bolton!


Walking by the canal is such a lovely thing to do. I live really close to the Lagan river and canal and walk there whenever I can. When we lived in Staffordshire I loved the canal there too.


Hi Lucy, This comment is a little late but couldn't get on internet last night...how disastarous! Had to reply to this blog though. Mary Poppins is my favourite ever film and Josh and I just love sitting watching it. We have a dvd night on a Friday night cuddled up under the covers with lovely snacks usually marshmallows and chocolate!

I didn't want to turn the calendar yesterday either as it was moving from the village pub to the churchyard - which is beautiful but it totally reminds me that we are coming into autumn which isn't one of my favourite seasons i'm such a summer or winter person none of this larking in between lol! Our weather was the same yesterday four seasons in one day.

I am fascinated by those canals. Do people live in the boats? What else are they used for?

i liked your weather post today. the photos featured made me feel like i had a sneak peak at your beautiful surroundings, and fed my wanderlust.
and oh, a canal!

Thanks for the canal photo - I lived in an upstairs flat overlooking it on Alexandra Court before we had the children - lovely memories of waving to the boats sauntering by and watching the great crested grebes dancing on the water


I so enjoy the views from your attic window. How beautiful your view is! The town you live in looks just lovely.


well its properly autumn today if it wasn't before!! we had the same weather today but also saw two spectacular rainbows but they disappeared before I could photograph them :-( the canal walk looks lovely :-)

I, absolutely, love when you show your attic view in all kinds of weather. I find it to be quite fascinating. What's at the top of that very high hill in your pictures? Have you ever gone there and stood at the very top? Also, adore your coloful little crocheted covers, must try to do one. Happy October to you and I hope you have a comfy little evening with your family.


That canal is so fab -- I love it every time you feature it on your blog. Could some random American person come and live on one of those boats for a while???

Definitely to icy cold to be a real October picture I much prefer the pumpkin orange and autumn picture. What beautiful photographs, I love the canals I can remember many a holiday when I was a teenager chuntering along the canals looking for the next pub, tells you a lot about my family when we only ever stopped for a pub! The weather has been very much the same here on the Somerset/Dorset border, I am sat looking at the hearth wondering weather to light the fire. I am already organising Halloween activities (as its during the half term hols) to make and do with Jamie and her friends, I can feel some creepy decorations coming on!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful surroundings
Cheers Alex


Hi Lucy isn't it incrediable how much the weather can change in just one day, here in Co. Wexford in Ireland we are having much the same, what else can we expect these days! Can you imagine, it is now October, where has the time gone, our thoughts are now on Halloween or Christmas, i was in Aldi today and there were 3 woman looking to buy dried fruits for the Christmas cakes, obviously they must of been having a special as everything was sold, we must have eager bakers here in Co. Wexford. I agree with you the kite flying picture is more this time of year although i did like the blue one as well although not right for this time of year.
