Leah Lynch

What a wonderfully satisfying post! Your photos and words make your doings come alive. I still think you should write a book.
Thank you for sharing your remarkable life!


Lovely and so green! I hope someday to travel to that part of this amazing world. I really appreciate your love of nature and the simple things of life that really make our lives special. Have a happy summer!!!!
ps, I like !!! too!
Cheers, Sue.

What a joyous post Lucy!! Warms my heart here in New Zealand in the depths winter 😊 I love winter, generally, but am looking forward to the spring this year. I love your photos and the wonderful long walks you take. Perfect!!! Thanks so much xxx

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your summer doings! What a beautiful place you have been visiting.. I especially love the shady, leafy photo of the creek with the sun glittering off the surface. I've been meaning to ask you - do you still have your caravan in the park? I haven't seen you visit it in some time and wondered if you'd sold it. I'm so happy for you that J has been able to change his work schedule to spend more time with the family - that is priceless. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Lucy you are like a breath of fresh air thank you


What a lovely post, with gorgeous summery photos. I was just thinking today that I only have a couple of years of the school run left. I rather enjoy it too. I very much like the look of that coffee cake with a Flake on top, an excellent idea, I think I shall make mine like that from now on. Glad you've been out and about enjoying the summer weather. I shall very much look forward to hearing about your allotment - well done on the mange tout. CJ xx


Thank you Lucy, and I just spent a good half hour reading all about the Strid, which was super interesting. I love learning new things, and love your blog (and blankets, and yarn packs).

Your photos always make me want to rush out for a walk somewhere, they're so beautiful! Unfortunately, it's pouring down here in Blackpool, so I'm tucked up on the sofa with my knitting, and living vicariously through your blog post ;) Walking will have to wait until it's a bit less damp xxx


Hi when will the pattern and wool be available,I would really love to make it. And thankyou for sharing your time with your family


Lovely post. Enjoy the allotment. We also have a half plot. If the plot was neglected before you took it over it will take time to get it back under control. Don't forget to put some flowers in - apart from helping the bees it is lovely to be able to take cut flowers home too. Enjoy.


I just watched the second episode of Escape to the Country last night and I think Bolton Abbey was featured at the beginning of the show. They were definitely talking about the Yorkshire Dales and Moore so I thought about you I love your blog.


Loving the pics and chat.The grey skies today are such a change from last Wednesday but more breathable.Enjoy those school walks precious chat time😊


What a gorgeous pics, loved your chatter. Best decision ever of J to work less and enjoy the time together with you. Oh, my, 19 years of that waling the kids to school!I thought 13 year was a long time, I don't miss it at all. That time of flying from A to B to be in time for the kids, the times I hit the jackpot in a huge traffic jam and didn't made it in time. On the phone to organize for an other mum to take them home. I bet you love it as much as I do to have lovely human beings to talk with on equal level.That squary blanket is coming along just fine. So curious.


Loved reading your post today. What a perfectly lovely routine you seem to be in right now. I wish I had the Yorkshire Dales right outside my door. We have other lovely things, lots of water and forests nearby, so I shouldn't complain. I wouldn't mind a slice of that delicious looking cake though!

Mary Jenkins

So lovely to read your chattering style and see the lovely photos of Yorkshire - and to see that you are recovering well after losing your mum. Your life with J and the little ones sounds so idyllic up there in Skipton. I must admit I am envious. Of course, no life is ever perfect, but I AM so glad that you have time with friends and with your husband to sustain you. Thank you for sharing. I am planning a canal boat holiday next spring and we are very interested in the Leeds - Liverpool canal, as there looks to be lots of things to do and places of interest. Despite living in Hebden Bridge for 4 years I never visited Bolton Abbey, and it looks a delightful place. Enjoy every day Lucy and good luck with growing your own.

Ingrid Meecham

Lovely to read your blog today. We spent last week on a working farm in the Welsh borders with my 90 year old mum, too hot to crochet more of my hydrangea blanket but lots of inspiration for future attempts (mainly poor) at watercolour painting. Look forward to your next instalment, you are inspiring me to head for Yorkshire in the future.


Thank you for allowing me to take a walk with you. I have started the centers of the Summer Harmony Blanket.

Winwick Mum

I hadn't realised we'd walked quite as far as we did around Bolton Abbey - no wonder we were ready for cake! :-) The Strid is quite a place; it fascinates me and gives me the creeps at the same time. Glad to see your allotment is coming on so well, it's the tomatoes that I'm always in a hurry to see ripen in my garden! xx


Thank you for the many beautiful pictures. I have always admired the beauty of your country.


I enjoy seeing how other people enjoy their summertime. Thanks for letting us share with these gorgeous photographs. I feel refreshed already!


I really enjoyed and envy your summer walks in Yorkshire. I love the sheep. I can just imagine the picnics. I miss England so much


What a treat to see so much of the exquisite green English countryside and to hear about your summer adventures. 26C temps are just about perfect weather. 8 days ago we had a full week of 38C temps here in the San Francisco Bay Area - especially the East Bay and inland areas. We're back to the 26C temp now which is ideal.

Your school year is so different than ours. Here the kiddies have already been on summer vacation for almost a month. They'll return to school in mid to late August. So it's almost 3 months off school for them in the summer. Many have other fun things to do like swimming lessons, summer camp, musical theater, and of course, sports activities during their school "vacations". SO nice that your hubby is now able to spend a lot more time with the family. Very rare and special. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lucy, always a great read. Love your blogs.. Glad to see you're happy and loving life, and what a great life you have 'up north'. Summers been and gone down here in Somerset today was sweltering in over 35c last weds. today we have wall to wall rain...what a change a week makes. I made a giant crochet square jacket which got very little approval from my off spring so its turned into a blanket.!! Im currently working on my uber bright suqare blanket...giant bright squares which will be flanked with little white ones ..inspired by an advert on tv!! Thankyou as always for your inspiration. Take care have a great summer xx


Such lovely photos of your gorgeous countryside. I live in Colorado and while we have had a bit more green this year than some, we are getting into the mostly brown part of the year. Seeing all your lush greenery makes me long for my younger days in NW Pennsylvania where things actually stay green all summer! I don't comment much, but wanted you to know how much I appreciate all the wonderful things you share with us! ~chris
