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.

Hi, I live in Chile,and I happened to find your page, it is absolutely gorgeous! I'm trying to strt crocheting some bags, let's see what happens... congratulations, I loved the colour and the inspirational flowers!


The mosaic heart is Beautiful Lucy ...Your heart is Beautiful!!


Congratulations, Lucy! I've just caught up with your most recent posts and read your news. What a surprise - and obviously a delightful one now you're getting used to the idea!!! Shall enjoy keeping up with the news.

Love the new yarn!


What a beautiful little space. Taking some time to rest and ponder is always good.


There is much to be said for sitting and pondering and drinking tea.

Perhaps more people should try it. :)


Have added the beautiful heart photo as a direct link to your blog on my blog gadgets list
Adore hearts and what they stand for...hope this is ok with you x


Ahh Lucy,you bring peace and tranquillity to my day,its so good for us to take stock and reflect on our thoughts. Take care my friend and look after yourself. July x


I love the stone walls in your garden, they give so much character to an outdoor area.


Lucy - your news is wonderful and it was so exciting to read about it. I, too, had children later - one at 36 and one at 39 - they are now 8 & 10. I can totally understand your thought process and am glad to know that you have your blog friends to talk to. You are an inspiration to me every day and your family sounds wonderful! Keep pondering...it's good for the soul!


What a gentle post, Lucy. I hope that you are now feeling as peaceful as you sound. The heart is beautiful.


'Autumnal' is one of the most beautiful words in the english language. I rather like 'ponder' too. What a lovely way to whittle away an afternoon.


The garden is looking really lovely. I'm so jealous!

Hope you have a few sunny autumn days to wrap up in a snug cardi and sit out with a cup of tea and a biscuit! x

I've just been catching up on your blog posts since the big news. I do think that what you put out into the blogosphere is what you get back. You are always so bright and cheery and honest, it's no wonder that people are so happy for you when you've good such big news.

PS I know exactly what you mean about the tangled ric rac. A good description for my addled brain.


Aw - your mosaic heart is beautiful :-)


I always enjoy reading your blog and look at your gorgeous pictures.
Go ahaed and drink your tea: A girl has to do what she needs to do. And if it's drinking tea, well, then it's drinking a cuppa te.
BTW: Love your tea-mug!!!!!

It's good to dream Lucy - even if it is day dreaming which I am very 'very' good at. It's my kind of switch off mechanism.

Have a lovely day,

Nina x


Lucy---my darling you keep pondering if thats is how your feeling----AS the time will come (Jan) you can ponder no more ---and you cetrtainly will be, over the moon that you wont want to ponder----and if you do you will be snugling a wonderful bundle----are you going to find out what sex it is? just enjoy each day and stop worrying love to all Australia


oh i forgot to say earlier that having seen your ripple blankets i thought i would have a look at your pattern. I so want to have a go but it looks very daunting and a tad scary! I think i will study it a bit longer before i purchase any yarn!!! Your blankets are just fab x


That jumbled-up-but-with-lots-of-potential thoughts feeling is so very exciting but sometimes overwhelming! Drinking cups of tea (particularly out of nice cups!) sounds like a great solution to me :-) I'm sure that whatever makes it's way out of the ric-rac thoughts will be something that makes us oohh and aahhh - enjoy the process!


THANK you Lucy and CONGRATULATIONS!!! I found out about your baby tonight at my stitch and bitch and it was ME that introduced your blog to them! I have been a bit busy, pre-occupied and not been at the computer for a few days/ nay weeks really...It's all such FABULOUS news and don;t worry I had one of my children 3 months before my 4oth and one 2 years later and all has been fine and dandy!Except for the eldest starting grammar school and the big 50 is now looming up ahead... However I'll have a party and deduct a decade...Back to you: your blog cheers up sooo many people!! Your photos are ALWAYS fabulous and the writing is funny, touching, inspiring and just so lovely! Like the wishes post that I've only just read: I just about cried! Soooo sweet! THANK YOU FOR SHARING the magic.
Bestest wishes to you from all of my family including the puppy Lucy who tangles up my yarn but is always forgiven and is now 6 months old.


Wow! Congratulations on your wonderful news Lucy! I've been a bit behind with my blog reading lately and only just read your fabulous news. I gasped out loud when I saw your announcement post! I am so happy for you and your family and very excited for you too!
My baby girl is 10 months old now and isn't really a baby anymore. It has gone so fast and I feel sad now that I won't be doing the baby-thing again. But I shall enjoy reading about your upcoming baby-days.
Love and hugs to you Lucy.

Gorgeous mosaic heart....
What a pretty spot to sit and take in the sunshine whilst enjoying a cup of tea...nothing nicer than being surrounded in prettiness.

Aw what a beautiful heart - love your garden too! You get so many comments - I wonder what your magic secret is - though i guess I already know part of it - warm heart, beautiful blog and writing! xxx


the heart is lovley you do so much uplifting for people with your colourful cheery posts that it is cool to offer something in return:)


I love your description of your thoughts being a "tangled ball of ric rac". It is exactly how I sometimes feel, but can never put into words so well. I'm sure, as you continue to ponder, all will fall into place.
