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

Whitby is one of my favourite favourite places, the lovely cake shop at the bottom of the steps - fruit cake with cheese. And always in the winter! x

Hi Lucy, It all looks so incredibly, beautifully, historically, old world! So completely different to my world! I also love the sea, the sounds, smells and taste yet I live (happily) miles away on the fringes of the Kalahari Desert!!

Thank you for sharing your holiday. I lived in England (Suffolk) for 7 years and I miss it so.


I know exactly what you mean about being beside the sea, I love St Ives in Cornwall, and would live there tomorrow if I could.


What a great trip! Thanks for letting us peek ;)

I really enjoyed your words and pics about Whitby. It bought back memories when we were there in 2011. My husband grew up in West Yorkshire but has lived in Australia for many years. The weather is very hot and sticky here at the moment and I long for a freezing cold day. lol


Thank you for the photographs, I remember the day, when we visited Whitby. And I feel like you, a day without the see is no day!



A great post Lucy. I love the seaside and come form Essex. I used to live 5 minutes from the sea but now I live in the Midlands and miss it terribly. Nothing beats the sea breeze in your hair does it? Whitby looks wonderful, I wonder if I can talk DH into going? Thanks for taking us along.


Hi Lucy
So pleased you had an enjoyable visit over here in Whitby .... despite having picked a couple of the most bitterly cold days we've had all winter! Today the sky is blue, the sun is shining and there is a glorious spring-like freshness in the air - what a difference a week can make.

I had no idea of the Dracula link! :)


I love England, and this is lovely pictures...


Thanks for sharing about your trip to the shore. Made me realise again that just staying away from home for one night can really feel like a Holiday! What shall I start planning?


Thank you so much for this post. I grew up near Whitby and this has really stirred up some lovely memories.


Lovely post, sounds like you had a good break away. Never been to Whitby but heard it's a lovely place and your pictures confirm it.

Thank you so much for a lovely journey. I would so love to visit the UK.Your trips are great to learn about your wonderful country.I am married to a "pom", he has told me of many adventures he had as a young boy. I am going to buy him a set of 6 DVD's about canalboating in the UK. I look forward to seeing them.Shirley

What a lovely place !


We love Whitby too. We were once there in the beginning of December and we had a dusting of snow, and went on the beach. There is something surreal about snow covered sand.
Looks like you had a great time.


How lovely! Isn't it amazing what a few days away can do for the body & soul?


I feel exactly the same about not living by the sea. One day.


Hi Lucy, thank you very much for sharing your little break with us. Being a Yorkshire lass I'm just like you, I love the Yorkshire coast, so many little bays and places you just have to explore. I don't get there very often now but would love to go back. I feel the same about Cornwall and Devon too. You can't beat a lovely beach for a long bracing walk. I do have a dream that sometime I would love to work in one of the beach cafes for the summer but not sure if this would happen, I like having my family near me and couldn't expect them all to move with me. So it's just a little dream. All take care, Val x


Hi, Lucy! I'm so glad that you had a nice trip, and got more memories about this beautiful town..I do love the streets and the houses..and especially that cozy pub! how much I'd like to visit such places some day...
Have a nice day! And keep warm :)


And there's the connection to Captain James Cook for us Aussies! Thanks for the lovely pics and story.


Sigh. That is positively lovely.

Reminds me of when my hubby and I would visit Chicago in the winter in college. No one there (gee, I wonder why?) and everything much cheaper. I also visited Paris for the first time in the dead of winter.

So glad you got to get away - it does do the soul a great bit of good, doesn't it?
