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

Most men have a one-track mind when it involves gender—getting to their own climax. Thinking of your partner is more than just collaborating in foreplay. During sexual issues, rather than thrusting forward to your own orgasm, strive to focus on her erogenous zones while finding a approach to manually stimulate her arousal. Just follow the information so you'll be able to extend your ejaculation amount. With apply and self-management, you'll have your partner experience a climax that she has not known before.

Ah, some happy memories for me there, reminding me of my Dorset Days. What absolutely perfect weather you enjoyed (as did we here in Carms, but we weren't on holiday!) I am sure your children will remember your week for years to come.

I've just found your blog, and wanted to say, wow! You've really sold Dorset to me and your mum's tea looks fantastic!

Gail bishop

Looks like you had a fantastic time! I have just seen this, are they your colours?



Hi Lucy, so glad I found you! Your blog is wonderful, so full of colour and inspiration. Infact, you have inspired me to finally write my first blog post and to finally have a go and learn to crochet (after having the wool and needles sitting looking at me for many years!) and I have to say I tried your mackerel & potato fishcakes which were yum, yum! I was getting so bored with mackerel salads! Thank you! Sarah

Thanks Lucy, weather here a bit more changeable, shall we say, but we can all enjoy yours vicariously!


This is the perfect way to bottle such wonderful summer days so you can crack them open on cold winters evenings. Thanks for sharing!

I love your mum's gardens and her surroundings. I guess that is what I like the best about England, the quaint cottages of old and how the people in Europe take care of the past. Her tea goodies looked yummy and how much work she went to to make it all special for you. Thank you for sharing.
Susanne :)
