Love autumn! Just have to share a picture of our cat Boo. Ooh can’t ad one here so have emailed it to you.


Hi Lucy!
I thoroughly enjoy your postings, projects and pictures. Although I’ve followed you for about 5 years & have given comments before, I especially wanted you to know how very much I enjoy the pics of Miss Kitty. She seems to always take part in your stitching, and having 3 of my own, I can totally relate to such “helpfulness”. Please give her a hug for me all the way from Texas and continue letting her have her glimpses of stardom on your blog!


I love the sentiment of chasing those glorious moments down. A timely reminder to me a bit overwhelmed by work and mothering combined. Thankyou!

A frumpy start but beautiful finish to your day. I genuinely love your posts. Your honesty and warmth pervade and your photos are so lovely. I always feel very happy after browsing through your days.


Hi Lucy,

Looking at your pictures I can almost smell the wonderful autumn air. And I am happy that I’m just as blessed as you since I drive by such beautiful coloured trees as I go to work 😊.

Today storm & rain, real old fashioned autumn weather. Afterwards it is good to come into a warm and cosy home. This afternoon again greeted by Peruvian music from Agua Marina: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-LNsji4iug.

Have a nice evening.

On day 20 our weather was miserable, cold with heavy rain, but we had two bright points, it was our daughter’s birthday so spent time with her and her family then when I was getting tea the sky cleared and we had the most beautiful sunset. I took a photo out of the back bedroom window, I wish I could show you. It was beautiful but over so soon.


My Lion The Big Wild Cat could open doors, also fridge, and freezer doors. Everybody was alert on him not to enter the shed but for my holiday pet sitter. She got the chicken food out of the shed with Lion at her heels. And he opened the freezer while she went away. A big 6-foot freezer full of food. The pet sitter never noticed. That was a sad thing to come home to. Had a good talk with Lion The Wild Cat, he blinked, walked to the fridge, and opened the door, sitting next to it and looking at me. He was one proud cat. I miss him dearly. You really shouldn't be that harsh on yourself, you made the whole family work smoothly, from clothing, food, to flapjacks. The creative fluids need a day off now and then, they do. Big hug my dear.

Just love reading your blog adventures I've been reading your bog for many years looking at how your beautiful work has developed and grown along with your family. I hope that you feel a little better tomorrow and that your sun and blue skies shine. Love all your beautiful work.


O, Lucy, I do love your photos & descriptions. It makes me long to live in England where everything is ancient & aged to perfection--Over here if anything gets a little age on it they tear it down & put up something bigger, uglier, & modern. I love your blog & am looking forward to reading it every day during Oct. Your appreciative friend, though you don't know me.....I am your appreciative friend, though you don't know me.

Hi Lucy, Can't tell you how much I enjoy your blog posts - have done for many years now. Thanks for sharing your moments with us all, and for the inspiration you endlessly provide. Thank you!


I think we all have days like those - glad you had some bright spots too - and that flapjack looks lovely! Hope that things calm down a bit for Little Lady soon xx

Winwick Mum

I'm glad you saw the sunshine today - and now I've seen it in your photos! xx

Lovely post, Lucy; it's great to share your days. Those flapjacks look perfect. My day could have been better...but I can still smile about most of it...now tossing up over having and early night or making flapjacks!


Just love the way you have described how your day evolved! And, that light never disappoints.
When it says sugar/syrup in a recipe, I often use honey or maple syrup or rice malt syrup or even date syrup which is rich and gorgeous. It probably isn't any more healthy but sounds like it is!!
My latest flapjack recipe used melted honey with almond nut butter - oh sooo good! XX


I'm really enjoying your blogtober posts. Thank you


Your end of the day when you have just published a blog post is my beginning of the day. My 'earlier rising' partner wakes me with a coffee, Im sitting up in bed checking out my FB feed and there's the latest post from you! And I have the delightful indulgence of enjoying lovely photos and musings from yourself as I sip and wake. Thank you! It's made my October mornings so much more enjoyable!


The blue sky is lovely Lucy, glad to hear you got out to enjoy it. We have had some of everything today, torrential rain, wind, thunder and some lovely sun to, my washing has been of and on the line a few times. Luckily in between a visit to the dentist I have also managed 3 rows of my Yuletide blanket. I love to read your blog every day.


When I get a chance to pop in and read your blog I find it utterly beautiful and so uplifting. I don't know how you do it but your writing about an ordinary day is just so mesmerizing to read. Your photos are stunning and I just feel better for reading about your day. And that last Autumn leaf is so special..Thank YOU. for the time and energy you put into this blog..I wish I lived nearer so I could pop along and share a coffee and a natter. Your family are super lucky to have you making your home so cosy and wonderful..and crunchy flapjacks are the best.


Glad you had that special golden moment. Your cooking made me smile. I will quite often get the urge to bake and often find I’m missing one ingredient. Grrrr. Often use maple syrup instead of golden. Always delicious in flapjacks. Fire lit here too. So cosy. B x


ahhh , we've all had days where we've felt at sixes and sevens. Spag bol by the light of the fire sounds wonderful
