Hi Lucy,
I enjoyed reading your post. We were just in London recently (mid December) and enjoyed our trip tremendously! It was our 1st time. We live in Northern California. It was fun seeing your pics and recognize quite a few spots 😊. Thanks for sharing and keeping my memories fresh! 😊

Lovely! I also love Neals Yard, such wonderful colours in the buildings!


I was lucky enough to spend three weeks in London this past August and loved every minute of it! It was my third trip to England and I decided that I didn't have to do anything to improve myself, so instead of going to the theater or to museums or monuments, I walked around the city, took day trips to interesting little towns on the train, went to a folk festival, rode the tops of double decker buses, and took masses of wonderful photos. Oh, and had cream tea almost every day!


I definitely need to go back to London, I feel like there was so much that I didn't get to explore! I didn't do any of the museums and really would like to go and spend some quality time in them.


Hamley’s has an exclusive Lego polybag of a guard.


How lovely to give your children experiences rather than things to celebrate a birthday.

Jane Dorfman

Those unplanned trip sometimes turn out to be the best. Hope you are feeling better by now.

They grow up too fast. A belated happy birthday to L. B! Sounds like a fab time of it. Get well soon!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


What an excellent adventure. I've taken my eldest to London, but not the other two, I really should get around to it. We ate our lunch in the Natural History Museum garden which was lovely, they even had moorhens and a couple of sheep. A tiny bit of countryside in the middle of the city. Glad everyone had a good time. I hope you're all better soon. I've had the cold/flu thing and I just can't seem to shift it, have been feeling wiped out for days now. CJ xx


Morning Lucy,
I do hope you are feeling much better. What a wonderful birthday treat for little B. Memories stored up for the future worth there weight in gold. Having decided to give the woodland blanket a go we tried to order the wool yesterday, OUT of STOCK, just shows you how popular you designs are. Never mind it will come soon I'm sure.
I do have to finish the border on the summer harmony first so perhaps the wait is a good thing.
I am enjoying crochet more than I ever thought possible thanks to you.


I love reading your posts and what a lovely day you had you did so much I got tired reading about it all he he
Have you considered Windsor the castle is amazing and you get much closer to the soldiers. There are boat ridea, shops and of course LEGOLAND.
I am doing your CAL but decided to use my own colours to use some of my stash up, I am thoroughly enjoying it thankyou, your patterns are so easy to follow and you lovely blogs always cheer me up.
And yes that damn cold swept us off our feet at Xmas xx hope you feel better soon.


Thank you, Lucy, always love reading your blog. Can never see pictures of The Natural History Museum now without thinking of Paddington and his lucky escape from taxidermy! Hope you're feeling better now xxx

Lovely account of your visit to London. Hope you're feeling much better. Can you share your tips for finding cheap first class travel?


Received my blanket pack for a Christmas present and have started. Getting the hang of the pattern and looking forward to the journey. Keep warm and hoe you feel better soon. Luckily I had all that before Christmas.

Aimee Dewar

I was worried that something had happened. I knew your absence from FB was odd for you during the CAL. Hope you feel well soon. We have all had it too, ever so slowly working it’s way through the 5 of us since before Christmas.


What an exciting day your family had in London! I love London and will be visiting in June this year for a few days(all the way from Australia!). Hope the weather is warmer then! Hope your cold gets better soon. Love to read your posts and drool at your photos. Hugs from sunny and hot Australia! 😁

Happy Birthday Little B! When my nephews were younger they loved Legos as much as you do. My sister, who is 45 years old, built the London Bridge from a Lego kit and it sits over her fireplace. It has little red double decker buses and everything! She got to visit London for the first time too a few years ago and absolutely loved it.
I'm writing from Greenwood, Indiana in the United States. It is just outside of Indianapolis where they have the Indy 500 race every year. The race cars drive 200 times around an oval track that is just two and a half miles around and that makes up the whole 500 miles. I'm not sure what that is in kilometers so I hope you are good at math. I had to look up some of that information so don't tell anyone....sshhh!
Enjoy your socks and say hello to Tilly for me.

Feel better soon Lucy! Sounds like an exciting birthday celebration for your youngest and a day he will probably remember for the rest of his life! (Mine, all well into their 20’s, still remember trips to London from that kind of age, I think it makes a big impression on our little people who grow up so far removed from big city life!) I am 15 stripes in to my woodland ripple and loving it so much! 😍 hope you get the chance to put your feet up a bit & rest some this week now the kids are back to school. Hugs from the frozen north!

A perfect day in London by the sound of it Lucy, must admit to loving London any time of year and I’m looking forward to taking our little grandchildren when they’re a bit older. Hope you feel better very soon, I’m loving doing the latest CAL but I am doing it in the baby ripple as I prefer a closer pattern. Still doing the colours to the woodland order though and it’s looking fab so thank you very much


Hi Lucy! Your blog travels are the best- I just imagine all of what you describe like I'm reading a book. And the photos are wonderful! As always, smiling through the entire read. Bless you & hope you feel better soon.

Mary Lloyd Jones

Hope you feel better now Lucy....have just come down with dreaded cold today so feel pretty grotty! Sounds like a lovely family day out in London...I love to visit family there but am so pleased to come home to N. Wales for the peace, the Straits and the mountains! Keep well.


Sounds like an exciting trip, shame about the cold - we have all had it here too and the cough certainly lingered well past its sell-by date! Enjoying the CAL although doing my own colours, lovely pattern and very relaxing, rippling up and down :)

Mary Margaret

Hi, Lucy, loved reading about your trip to England. I’m in Texas and have gotten to go to London twice—very exciting and so much to see/do! Please tell Little B that I agree with his assessment of Buckingham Palace! We took the train out to Windsor from London, and it’s much more impressive. And the changing of the guard at Windsor is the best! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with all of us. I am making your granny stripe blanket for my niece in her university colors, and it is beautiful!


EEEEK!!! this post made me excited! My husband and I are coming to London in March for a week visit. I am extremely excited! This is our first visit.
