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.

Lovely poem Lucy...yes we all need to get away to our happy place and remember what it feels like to just Be You, even for a little while....🤗

What a wonderful post and such a lovely sentiment at the end, thank you for sharing it, it made me smile x


Woooooooow! LOVE it!

St Anne's! Our most favourite seaside place! We have holidayed there for fifty years now, and spend an annual weekend in summer with the whole family. My hubby retires next week, and we have booked a few days there in January to celebrate, pootling around and making good use of the walking boots we have bought each other for Christmas. We may even hire one of the shiny new beach huts for a day!
Your day looks perfect, I can't imagine a nicer way to spend it x


What a special day for the two of you! And how lucky you are to be so close to two coasts! Here in Texas where distances are so great, we think nothing of driving 50 miles, and not much more of driving 90. It's a common occurrence. But our closest beach is on the Gulf coast about an 8 hour drive, 12 if you go to the very southernmost part (my favorite for it's long, long clean beach) Sadly, not many visits to the coast for us.

How wise and wonderful of you two to take that time and do something memorable and heartening. Thanks for sharing it with us.. maybe you'll inspire all of us to be so smart. LOVE that paper cut and the poem. We do that deep breathing when we take our caravan to the beach for a week each spring and fall for our birthdays. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

So lovely, it is making me want to go to the beach. Muir Woods is very close here. It is a walk among tall redwoods and if it is raining even better. Grab a hot chocolate and sit under the trees. Some times I forget about all the beauty around me. Reading your posts is a reminder of how nature can restore our souls. Thank you for sharing.


It's lovely on St Annes' beach isn't it? Our dogs love it. But I bet it was freezing!

Janis Taylor

Perfect!!!!! Making memories is always fun :)


A purely blissful day Lucy. We went to the sea yesterday......a long way from your sea....we were at Wells next the Sea in Norfolk. It was mild, damp and misty you could just about see the RNLI building at the end of the harbour inlet, but I enjoyed every minute. Wells has been my go to coastal trip ever since I've existed. The fish & chips we enjoyed were from a third generation family owned business that's been there for more than 90 years.....so all my life too. It's the little things in life that really matter x

Peta Cowan

That is beautiful, I want to capture the poem and put it somewhere in a frame!! Thank you for sharing!

So glad you love my local beach as much as I do! I'm a "sand grown'un'" .... someone born and bred here on the Fylde Coast - I've lived here all my life and wouldn't want to live anywhere else! I'm looking forward to sitting here in my little cottage by the sea, thinking of your beautiful Moorland home while doing the CAL with you in just a few weeks! xx




Lovely...Thank you for sharing your lovely day.


That sounds so lovely. Just what I could do with at the moment ... My head is all over the place. Looking forward to the xmas hols to relax a little if possible. Von x

Suzana Behmer

How perfectly wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And so glad you did share, Lucy! Since we have no kids, Denny and I do this all the time. Sometimes we're joined by friends, but quite frequently it's just the two of us. Buddy the Cat is at home. What did you name yours?


How lovely. Enjoy those moments that are just for your two. :)

Just wonderful! Good for you!


Lucy, thank you for sharing your precious day with us. I haven't seen that poem before, but I might tuck it away in my memory bank and use it on my husband sometime! Love Monica


Sounds wonderful Lucy,thank you for sharing this precious time X

Jennie Craine

Ah, "me time" as a couple is so important and when you have children, the tendancy is always to put them first and yourselves last. I am so glad you upped the anti and ran away to the beach for a few hours! We used to do something similar (needed so much as we were "late parents" - I was 34 before our first baby was born) and I can remember how good it felt to escape for a bit!


It's the simple things in life that give the most joy to our hearts.
and yarn! 😉


Oh Lucy, what a lovely day out and a great poem.
