A message from Brigid ....

I have been a blogger since 2005. At the height of my blogging busy-ness, I had "a small stable" of blogs on different topics: social and political commentary; desert spirituality; food; waste and ....

A few years ago I called time and ceased blogging altogether - although there was an occasional post. I had called it quits. I am an aged woman these days with a couple of serious illnesses. I am not allowed to drive. I am no longer active in organisations. I think it fair to say that I am housebound. I am active on Facebook, although I am not there as often as once I was. I have decided to embark on a re-entry into the blogging world ... beginning with The Trad Pad and, possibly, a return to my food blog, Oz Tucker. I have always used a lot of photographs on my blogs ... and I miss not being out and about with my camera.

The Trad Pad has been my blog for the lovely things of life. The controversial or political has seldom intruded. Occasionally, the spiritual has found its way in, but I kept spirituality for the blog, Desert. I don't yet know if I will revive that. I will stick pretty much to food and the lovely things of life. If I have some regularity with those two categories, I feel that I will be doing well. I hope that, with this blog new friendships can be formed and old friendships renewed; new lovelies discovered; new reflections can enter into the meaning of modern life. I would love to hear from you - particularly if you have suggestions for new topics to enter into the conversation. So, it is a new year. Let's see what it has in store, what it can bring to us. And I hope that those who share the spirit of The Trad Pad can spread the message of a world of beauty, the creativity of humanity, and the joys of simplicity and tradition. ~~~ February, 2017

Cath Kidston hits the shelves in Target

Herself and Miss Eagle were in Target for some winter clothing shopping. Of course, we had a browse. Herself and Miss E would have you know, dear Reader, that we have great admiration for the eye and the skills of the person who does the homeware and manchester purchasing for Target. Good stuff priced well! Then, in our browsing, you could have knocked each of us over with a feather!

There before our eyes was the magical name of Cath Kidston!

Now, dear Reader, if you have done any exploring you will know that Cath's wares have a certain cachet and are not available just anywhere and everywhere. In Melbourne, the very few number of stores who stock Cath's fabrics are only to be found in the "better" suburbs. So, to find her famous name even on toiletries was a surprise. So we spent the princely sum of A$7.99 to get our souvenir - a hatbox will have to wait until later!
