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.

You must think of the time spent writing the blog itself as an investment. It will be an amazing record of this time of your life - much more powerful than a photo album.

yours was the first not portuguese blog I started to follow...and I find it brilliant.

once again: thanks for colouring my days!

Hi - I hope your hangover is better and you get the label sewn on!
I am obseesed with blogging too I'm afraid.
I am 50/50 about autunm, I love it in some ways, the coziness etc but it makes me sad to see the end of summer and know the next one is far away!

Lucy:

I love Susan Hill and am patiently waiting for her next Simon Serailler(sp?) to come out.

I hope things are better there soon.

Lucy you just gave me a fright like Catherine above i thought you were going to say that you were going to pack it in. What would we do without your stories, your photos and the wonderful crafts that you make. I too have to check your blog (and that of Jane's at Posy) first thing in the morning the day would not be the same.

Just got up a few moments ago and when I read this you scared the living beans out of me. I thought you were going to take a huge blog break. You were so missed over your holiday that I thought, oh no, no Attic24 in the mornings with my first cup of tea? What will I do without that beautiful colorful soul brightening up my new day??
Since I am new to the blogging world I am hearing the same word thrown around in my home...obsession!! But it is fun and I do love the comments too and I am using my imagination in ways I never have before. I think we all inspire each other to be a better person.
So after those bloody labels are sewn in sweet Lucy, do something really good for yourself.

Hi Lucy,
This putting labels into clothes for school is something we do not know...here everybody just wears what they want at school ! Typically dutch :). About the blogging, i know: sometimes i also feel a bit "obsessed" but also it gives me so much happiness...isn't that great as well ? I hope the little people are all well!
i had a lot of reading up to do because i didn't have our computer for the last week: it had to be repaired....then you really miss the blogging :)
Have a nice week,
Janneke.

Dear Lucy,

get yourself a laundrey pen. I got one years ago and its saved loads of time. Life's too short to sew in labels girl!

driftwood

good luck with the labels, I resorted to the permament marker too, whilst the child was wearing the new item..........

Lesley

Totally understand the obsessiveness of blogland I think we are all the same :-) it is fab being able to ask others for advice or be inspired by things they have done etc - I am off to Dorset in a couple of weeks so have enjoyed reading your post about going there and have asked for ideas on my blog as well and you couldn't do that and reach so many people in "real life" so I hold up my hand to being a blogaholic and proud :-D

Sandie

My DD is 31 and asked if I still have any woven name labels.

Found one on a towel - so will unpick it and re-use it - not bad after 26 years' use!

Joanna

Those labels are like sewing in a bit of love to keep them safe! but that loving feeling can fade after the first 8!

Sarah

It can be such hard work keeping a blog but of so wonderful rewarding and inspirational in so many ways. I have to say I love your blog and it's one of my favourites well done on the awards you derserve them all. I knew I'd forgot something - name tags opps thanks for reminding me will get iron on ones!

Hi Lucy
I think we're all probably a little obsessed - but isn't that part of the fun?

Well done on all your awards...and very belatedly, I nominated you for one last week too...

Maddy

I have cut my blogging time down to Saturday morning from 7am to 8.30am and Monday morning after the boys are ready for school. I still read blogs on a daily basis but don't work on my own.

I don't think I'll ever tire of your photos from your attic window. What a magnificent view.

Don't worry too much about summer ending, you know you'll get another one next year ;). AND who can be dissapointed about a winter that holds CHRISTMAS!

Have a great week.

Fi

Gosh! You had me worried for a mo there. Thought you were giving up blogging, cos it takes up so much time. I find it difficult to fit it in, and I'm often posting that late on a night that I have to squint at the screen to see.

Gill

I still get a thrill every time someone comments on my blog, it's so nice to know there's this little band of people out there living their lives but taking the time to share them with us. But you're right it's so time-consuming.....I've had to step back a bit as work is pretty intense right now but I miss it, I still think of things I could post about but just can't do it all! Good job you're making us happy throughout the week.

Deb

Hi Lucy,
I understand what you mean about sewing on name tapes. I needed to hem 3 pairs of slacks for my son to wear to work - I ended up using iron on hem tape instead. Why could I spend hours sewing tiny pieces together for a quilt but hate to do hems? Even though blogging takes up a lot of your time, you could think of it as a journal of your children's early years. I wish I had kept one for my kids. Plus they are such fun for us to read!
