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

Such beauty! Such love! A wonderful way to spend a day. :~)


What fabulous and dramatic pictures, and yet so lovely and peaceful! I feel the need to don my walking boots and set off on a trek - although the most ruggedness I would come across would be the shingle on my driveway! Maybe I'll just stick to making a cup of hot chocolate, have a quick re-read of your post and pretend! Cat x


what for a great landscape...


Oh lovely lovely pictures of beautiful Yorkshire. As is so often the case when reading your blog I am now feeling rather homesick. I know both the vale of york and those wonderful hills of north yorkshire so so well and despite the fact that I love my live now down here in Oxfordshire, I do miss Yorkshire from time to time. Especially when I see lovely pics. Even more so as my in-laws-to-be have just phoned me to share with me the fact that they've just driven in to north yorkshire right now. Yeah thanks in-laws! Thanks for sharing your pictures today. It sounds and looks like you had a perfect day.


It looks beautiful, and sounds like you had a wonderful day together. you and J are very lucky to have each other and to have such delight in each other. Sounds more romantic than any Valentines' meal.


I like the Yorkshire so much. Don’t get me wrong, I never went there. It’s just I know it from All Creatures Great and Small. Don’t laugh. I like it since then and I want so much to go there. One day I will go.
Beautiful landscapes.



Sounds like a great day. I've also opted for the 'sliding down on my backside' method of descent in the past. So much more fun that way! :) Mr J and I are planning our first weekend without the small person this weekend (a valentine's treat) and I'm really quite excited. I think it'll be the first proper time alone in 19 months! I think a day walking might be in the offing after a very lazy morning in bed with papers and pastries - bliss!

This blog entry is better then any Valentine card or gift.

You have the ability to make simple things GRAND.

Happy Valentine to you and your family

Amazing scenery, such a contrast from your home comforts post. Used to go walking up there a lot before our girls came along.

I have given you an award for a friendly blog. You can find it on mine if you want to see.

You live in a beautiful place...but I know what you mean. After raising 11 kiddies with only one left to go, I'm getting some "breathing" room and hubby & I are starting to "get" to know each other once again...funny thing is we found out we still like each other ;) (lol).
I enjoyed this post very much.


lovely, lovely, lovely! such great, peaceful, mindful words and images for me to start my day with!


Oh wow, Lucy! I am not an outdoorsy person, but you make it sound damn attractive!

Love the pictures and words. Beautiful.
