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.

Hi Lucy, I’m very much enjoying reading your blog posts again! Thank you for sharing these windows into your world. I live in New Zealand and spent two years living in Leeds about 40 years ago. Your photos always bring back memories of our trips out and about in Yorkshire. Thanks also, for sharing the link to the Christmas trees, such a clever idea!

I love how you pivoted on a dime and made the most of a sunny Sunday. A perfect Autumn day for you all. Now I'm craving roasted chicken. Have a super week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

It's lovely to have you back, Lucy, and to have your posts to look forward to each day this month. At this moment in our lives, connection is really important . . . and really difficult! So it's great to be able to fall into step with you again as you go about your daily rounds. Thank you for doing this. But remember, if you can't, for whatever reason, manage a post during this month: don't worry! That's life, not failure! You're brightening a lot of lives, as you've done for years.


such a cozy post :)


I have my original slow cooker book from Prestige when I bought my first one decades ago. Now the family is downsized,so is the slow cooker! I have ordered this book, even though I have a couple of others,but not from Amazon as delivery was 1-2 months with them, whereas other online sellers of books had it ready now. But I love using it, not just because it makes life easier, but because of the depth of flavours.

You are so right about the effects of gin and tonic on a bit of knitting that requires concentration.. My last attempt while I was knitting a toddler hoodie resulted in one patch pocket longer than other! Luckily I realised before sewing them on the next day. Thank you so much for your daily BlOgtober, it really brightens my day.

Thank you for the lovely feel good post Lucy. I always read your blog when I am tucked up cosily in bed. A perfect end to the day.


Loved all the photos! I do so miss all the beautiful walks you have in England. This is my first time to read your blog and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing and have a blessed week ahead. Is it easy to knit a sock if one is a 'sometimes knitter'?


Love your blog. Thanks for such lovely posts. I enjoy them immensely.

Carly O

Oh you have to share more slow cooker favorite recipes from the book! I haven’t used mine in a while!


I adore your blog. Thank you for sharing.


Beautiful pictures! So glad you had such a lovely day - mine was spent preparing lessons and resources for next week at school, and slow-roasting a joint of beef. I did manage to get some washing done, and my husband has spent the day stripping the paint off an old table so he was happy!


Oh my beautiful Bolton Abbey, the first place we head to once we've settled after our flight from Oz to visit family. I'm enjoying your daily post, although I'm still struggling to find motivation for craft or regular blogposts myself. Thank you, take care, stay & hugs from down under.

I am really enjoying these daily blogs, especially as I was fortunate to visit Skipton for a couple of days recently and was able to spend some time exploring your town, woods and local area. Thank you so much for all your time and effort in writing up these blogs.

I love reading your blogs! It makes me feel as though I’m walking in your shoes!!!! I know when we drive back from places the way we usually get there, it feels weird, seeing everything from the other direction!! We have had a fairly good weather day today, with only a little rain this afternoon! Not like yesterday which was a”rain out” sort of day!
I was trying a different technique on a card I was making, but I have mucked it up! So cross with myself! Shall go to bed soon and hopefully will do it the correct way tomorrow!


We have your rain today, and last night and yesterday. Fair weather predicted for Monday. It has been a slow quiet kind of day here. Very nice to see your post again.


It sounds like a perfect day. :) xx


Beautifully written and so wonderful to read. I love the way you write so effortlessly and with such descriptive language that you feel that you are there too. Not only do you inspire me to crochet more but to also get out in to nature more. I am very envious your husband enjoys getting out too, Mine is such a home bird that he resists any suggestions to walk and enjoy our lovely countryside. so usually it's just me and the children which is a bit sad. Looking forward to reading the rest of your blogs for October - so lovely - Thank you for all the time you are taking with these - so generous of you - Enjoy your week

Linda from Boston

Just wanted to say that I’m loving the daily chats!!! Something to look forward to. I’m working on my second coastal blanket and have also taken up knitting socks again!! So much creativity!! 😀


What a lovely post. No blue skies here today, it was mostly rain. I envy you your ability to go back to sleep in the mornings. I can't at all and it drives me nuts if I wake up too early. The mushroom photo is amazing, and it all looks wonderfully cosy chez vous. I watched the boys playing football this afternoon - hard to believe that just two weeks ago we were sat on the grass in the sun wearing t-shirts. Hope you have a good week. I am very much enjoying your daily posts. CJ xx


I love seeing the beautiful pictures that you take on your walks - thanks so much for sharing! I too have been knitting socks this fall, a pair for me and a pair for my honey. Three socks in progress - yikes! I ran out of reinforcing yarn for my heel turn and it took forever (2 more socks done to the heel turn) waiting for those little spools to arrive. I'm including a link for an interesting article on different types of heel turns.

Jo Hyde

Sounds like the perfect day!

Kate Mitchell

Loving these blogs Lucy. I’d really missed your regular updates and it’s so nice to have you back. What a lovely idyllic Sunday you have had. I hope the rest of your week is just as lovely. x


Today wasn’t so good in SW London, it has been pouring steadily all day, knitting friend ran the London marathon for Tommy’s in our local Park today, many of the paths were flooded. I’ve spent the day completing pair of toe up socks for DH, pattern is Tramlines. Second time I’ve made these, first time easy peasy, this time I’ve struggled. In light relief started crocheting cotton face cloth to practice making bobbles.
