About Me

  • Hello! 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

Sounds a little like you might be suffering from Winter Blues. As well as fresh air and exercise, light therapy is helpful too.

If you Google SADA (the Seasonal Affective Disorder website) they have lots of helpful hints and tips, also lists of suppliers of Light Boxes - high light-intensity sunlight replacement lamps. I use one from end of October til the clocks change in March for an hour every morning. Come February I'm ready to throw it through the window, but it makes life so much easier really. Particularly as some years Winter Blues can deteriorate into full-blown Depression, sometimes Sectionably so.


Oh, Lucy
Your words are simply a delight.


You should definitely write a novel, Lucy, you certainly know how to completely catch the moment! ❤️


What a wonderful walk and it also took me back to my visit the last 2 years and the walks we went on in all sorts of weather ♥♥ Keep warm and enjoy those lovely warm fires inside xo

I love the changing seasons in the UK. Each one is so different from the one before but the weather is ever changing and always different. One thing is for sure - it won’t stay the same for long. I’m waiting to have an unexpected operation and will be unable to do very much between now and the end of January. I will appreciate the freedom to get out and about so much more after that!


Your first paragraph perfectly sums up how I feel this time of year too. I live in the Seattle area which is very gray and wet, and it just starts to feel so oppressive. Of course, I have to bite my tongue, it is an unseasonably gorgeous sunny day today, but cold!

I've just got a Lumie Vitamin L from John Lewis (they seemed to have the best price) and its fab like indoor sunshine. I have a dose every day.


I do love a good view for miles, and what an amazing wild place. Rushing back in the fading light is so nice when you get back to the warmth and light of home. I know what you mean about the woolliness, it's hard to get going sometimes. I think we are programmed deep down in our DNA to hibernate a little in the winter. CJ xx


I was a visitor to your beautiful part of the world last August and loved it. Even though it gets cold and gloomy I would like to visit in winter just to experience the changes in the season. We don't get the extreme changes here in Oz, at least not where I live.


Definitely wooliness,just want to hibernate ☺️
