how to get the job



Oh I love windmills so much! My balcony's full of them - well it was but I've had a look out and I think a few are missing! Time for my own trip to le supermarket!

I can only imagine how excited little B was about a train trip that most of us just take for granted. A lot more fun than the car! :-)


Hello Lucy,
I like your blog, it looks like my life - colorful, varied, no boring time:-)
And - a bit off this topic - I´d like to thank you for your neat ripple pattern for the blanket. Today I finished one big blanket with great result.

Lucy Thank You so much for your help - I got some! I could have kissed the man in the supermarket who went and got more from out the back of the shop for me (there was only 1 left and it was my 3rd visit - so I bought 6!). I think he thought I was a little nuts when I told him he had made my day but they make me smile every single time I look at them. I could kiss you too! Thank you for being a constant inspiration and for sharing your knowledge. Who knew something that cost £1 could give so much happiness!

Hi Lucy you certainly are a happy Mummy these days. I'm absolutely loving all your posts. It just makes me smile to read what you are up to and gives me a lot of inspiration. I was wondering if you might tell me where you got the lovely and cheap as chips windmills as I have been trying to find them. I don't really have a garden and like you I try to use a few pots here and there to brighten the place up, I would love to get some of these happy happy windmills so any tips on where to look would be very much appreciated!

Good luck with the sweet peas, pinching out the growing tips makes them wonderfully bushy, strong and plenty of gorgeous smelling flowers :)

Handmade in Israel

What a delightful day out! I always LOVE your photos of places - and train stations - in Yorkshire.
Lucy, I thought you might like to know that I made your Mum-in-laws curry over here in Israel and it was yummy! I have just posted about it and linked back to your recipe. You might like to see the results of my efforts here:


Lucy you are making me feel jealous, I loved the stay at home time I had with my children for exactly the same reasons. Now they are all adults and I work I find myself constantly feeling frustrated by the way work stops play!!!!!


I, like you, loved being a stay-at-home Mom. What lucky children!

idiosyncratic eye

'Picnic envy' - I love that expression and I'm going to kidnap it, I'm sure I can put it to much use! Sigh. Those windmills are so fun. :)

What a lovely happy post! I feel almost like I need to pin it to read when I am in the depths of Winter despair or not having a good Mummy day!!!
My big kids have a pupil free day this week so to celebrate we are off to the Museum and a picnic in the Botanic Gardens - days like that just make your heart sing don't they!


Such a lovely way to spend a day :)


oh you have to be the most charming mummy in blogland. love reading your sweet words and especially loved having those days of my little ones brought back to me. miss them! i love that you 'snook' those delightful windmills into your cart. they look perfect in your pots.


Hi Lucy - I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful ripple pattern. I've made some cushions and a blanket from it which someone actually bought... see here: http://kylie-3sheets.blogspot.com.au/2012/03/our-creative-spaces-finished-ripple.html
and I've passed on some of my good fortune to your coffee fund :)
Thank you!


Hi Lucy
I too have found the $1 windmills. I bought four of them to share with family members. No matter where we're from, I think we all look forward to spring. I just love each little flower that pokes its head above the ground after our snow. I too was a stay at home mom, loved every minute of it. My husband wanted it that way, thank goodness. Thanks for sharing, I love looking forward to your letters and pics.

Dear Lucy, loved coming along with you on your day out. So enjoy reading your blog you always make me smile.


Perfect day to me!


Hi Lucy,
How I love, love, love reading your posts. They make me smile a dozen times while reading them.
You are an inspiration for the time I get to spend with my two lovely grandsons.
I can only say keep doing what you are doing because you are doing it soooo well!!!!!


Ahh... this is what I would like to do when I have children - be a happy mum, doing small, cute deals with my daughter or son and watch how happy they are!
God bless your family and be happy!


Your blog is such an inspiration to me. Whenever I am having a bad day, I simply visit your blog with all its colors and immediately begin to feel better.

Thank you so much for your blog.

What a fun-filled day! Love the bunny cookies! ;-)
