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

I feel quite pleased, my crochet wavy blanket looks the same as yours! The carrot cake looks delicious too x

Dear Lucy,
I am reading your blogs for a while now. At first, it was about the crochet.
Then, my little girl was born - and so was I as a mom. Your blogs help me to see the bigger picture.
Thank you for that.

Thank you for taking us along on your lovely walk. Your children will remember so many walks and love it too.


Well I feel like I've just been on walk/hike with you and your family Thank you Lucy. We walked a little bit of the coastal path near to Durdle Door a couple of years ago, weather was not so good, blowing up a gale with similar treacherous steps down onto the beach so much so George my friend was the only one that ventured down.I have a picture of him walking the beach whilst I was being blown around at the top ......makes you realise how big those cliffs really are.


Just Wow.

Such gorgeous ups 'n' downs, challenges and all!

Your words and images captivated me ~ thanks for sharing!

Lovely. My youngest is similar in age to Little B and so yoi have given me hope that we will be able to get back to hiking again soon. My husband and I did much of our joint hiking in Dorset so your holiday blogs bring back lots of happy memories. Thanks.


Hi Lucy, what a lovely post! Your photo of West Bay brought back memories of my visit to the area when I was in my late teens. I had an unexpected trip there with my parents. My Mum took a photo of me walking up towards the top of the hill with the bay in the background, just like your photo. It looked like a scene from the sound of music (minus the bay of course!) .... and floral dress included!! Thanks for the memories. Enjoy your weekend. Annie x

Just looking at your glorious pictures and reading these holiday posts have brought back memories of happy times for me in the same places.How lucky you were to spend your early life in such a heavenly place.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for sharing,Lucy.
Best wishes from SW France, Carole x


What a fantastic walk. Well done!

Hi Lucy, I really enjoyed tagging along on your beachy day.. I adore our Oregon coast, too. Good for little B to be ready for such a hike! Did you find any pretty stones or sea glass? We are busily packing our caravan for our lake trip. I just finished up a rainbow colored bunting to hang at camp, with big bells attached. I will take some pix tomorrow.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Looks gorgeous! Glad the a British summer is behaving this year!

Thank you for sharing these beautiful weeks of holidays. I've never been to England, but many names are familiar through stories in books. So nice to get a first hand 'view' of these places. Love it!

Love the photos. I don't think my three little people would be as enthusiastic about walking those distances! My 4 1/2 year complaipns of tired legs on the short walk to Kindy! Your posts always make me persevere with taking the kids out walking more often as we do have a few bush walks close by.


Well done Little B, top walking! I'm glad you had two such wonderful walks, the views really are beautiful. No doubt all of the little people enjoyed the adventure. I hope you have a good weekend Lucy. CJ xx


Hi Lucy, So look forward to these posts, the pictures so informative and hearing about you and your family is such fun!
I was fortunate enough to travel with a friend to the UK in 2008, we were so busy seeing the main sites, your blog fills me in on the so much more I didn't see! So will dream to come back. Wish I could ask you many questions!!

I really enjoy your Dorset posts-we went to England for our honeymoon in 1985 and spent part of the time in Dorset. We went with two other couples who were close friends and stayed several days in Lyme Regis. Those who could, hiked (me, DH, our friend Pat) and it was great fun, although it was cloudy, windy, and drizzly the whole time we were there (June). Wonderful memories!


perfect pictures, perfect weather. seems like such a perfect summer holiday. every time you tell us about dorset, my need to go there gets stronger.

So enjoyed reading about your adventurous walks and brilliant photo's, reminded me of our walks on the Cornwall coast a few weeks ago, thank you x

Those stairs reminds me of a holiday trek when our girls were smaller, not as small as L.B. but many - many steep stairs to climb to reach a mountain waterfall. I really didn't think my legs were ever going to be the same after that! lol Here's a peek.
It's all so very beautiful Lucy, a wonderful place to grow up! Bravo to L.B. for such an adventurist hike too. That's my kind of a day! Have a great weekend.x


What a walk! I am very impressed with the little people that they managed the walk so well! We did some shorter costal walks here on holidays in Canada and I sure was exhausted to the bones afterwards! :)
Take care
