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.

I just do not know how to tell you how happy reading your blog makes me. I am South African and have always dreamt of living in England - which is totally out of the question now at 66 years of age - but with you, I live there every day! Also, I have been slightly depressed for most of my life but find that since I started reading your blog, the sun of happiness is shining more often and with more strength every day! Bless you for what your lovely blog is doing for your readers!

"Sigh" is right! Gorgeous sunset, beautiful water.


Such calming pictures... and meditative moo din your photos... glad you had such enjoyable holidays, Lucy. Blessings to you and yours!

I love the way you write, Lucy. It really draws me into the post.

The gardens you visited look amazing. I'm always a fan of wandering around some gardens when we're on holiday. We did the Eden Project while we were in Cornwall and saw some incredible plants. Not quite the same as wandering through a huge and long-established garden, though! Love the carvings on the fallen tree-lovely little touch!

Howdy very nice blog!! Guy .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I'll bookmark your blog and take the feeds additionally? I am happy to search out numerous helpful info right here within the post, we need develop extra strategies on this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .


Star light, Star bright, First Star I see tonight,
Wish I may, Wish I might, Have the Wish I wish tonight.

That's what I always think when I see the first stars. I'm sure my grown kids would think I was a nut!!!

Great blog as usual!!!


What do u do if u have to use the bathroom? And start the charcoal in a chimney no lighter fluid, pack a spotlight to, :-) we luv to have cookouts to, so much fun:-) sounds like u had a blast.


Love the pics. Spent some very happy summer hols in Eype in a caravan and have walked down to the beach there. Who can forget walking along Golden Cap. Wish I was back there now!


Wow, Eype beach looks so nice. The sunset photos are especially nice.
Glad to see you all enjoyed your holiday.


Beautiful photos that bring back happy memories of family holidays in Dorset.
My hubby thinks your butterfly is a Silver-Washed Fritillary from the shape of the wings.


Enjoyed your latest post immensely. I just love when I see your crocheted blankets peeking out of some of the pictures also. Your wish, now I'm just guessing here...but...was it to live in the country? Anyways, I just know that I will never in person see your part of the world but I do see it thru your pics which I thank you for.


I wish on the first star I see all the time. Someday my wish will come true. :) I hope all your wishes come true too.


I love reading your blog, especially how you can bring a story alive it's like being with you. Just amazing. You always have a positive outlook on things,
and the pictures are great!
Whenever I read your new posts, it's a wonderful break from the daily grind. Thank you so much, Lucy


really charming pictures! I wish I were there!!


I did my first event barbecuing this year - there really is no better way to taste food. Corn on the cob was a revelation!
Beautiful photos - especially the sequence at sunset.

Looks perfect - especially as I am reading your post as heavy rain is coming down. I love the sound it makes on the conservatory roof - but would quite like it to stop now! x

Sonia Petitpoint

It looks beautiful !

Hi Lucy such wonderful photographs thanks so much. Sitting here in a chilled room after all our sunshine your pictures bring so many wonderful images to mind. A great post Lucy as always
Lots of love

Gorgeous pics Lucy, especially of Eype. My favourite pic of all is the one with your gorgeous patchwork granny square blanket spread out on the pebbles with the sea and early evening horizon beyond. It just breathes all that's best about summer in England. Glad you had such a lovely holiday - the stuff of memories and dreams! E x


So pretty Lucy.
I remember your previous posts of this place...it is weird to think I have been a regular visitor and commentator of your lovely blog for a good 3 or 4 maybe years at least? Always have enjoyed it and hearing about your world and holidays which in a way is very similar to mine! I too love the sea, the smells and sights, love light, photo's, my family, capturing everyday moments that are otherwise forgotten or taken for granted.

I wonder what it is you wished for???


Oh Lucy what wonderful pictures you share,it just reminds me to think how lucky l am to live near the sea and countryside in Weymouth.

One of these photos looks like your in new Zealand with the ferns great looking at the good holiday you had.

Your pictures and words just sweep me away they are just so enchanting!!! Love those carved trees and your pictures of the beach picnic were lovely, I can hear your love for the sea and your family in your words. Feels like it was a magical time for you thanks for sharing it.
