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 I am no longer active in organisations.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

Upholstery classes at the #Creswick Neighbourhood Centre! Mmmm...

Look at what the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre is up to. 

Are any other TradPadders interested in going? 

I might be --- although I thought my doing up furniture days were over, this is a temptation! 

The CNC is a lovely place to do a course. Have done a couple of Larissa Romensky AbcOpen Ballarat courses there. After all, Creswick is only a suburb of Ballarat - just a bit of a hop, step and a jump!!  There has already been someone on the CSN Facebook site wanting to come up from Melbourne!
Pssst... I'm talking out of hand but, I'm a bit excited about some workshops we are planning for the near future... UPHOLSTERY! Yes you heard it right! It's a DIY dream and it's coming true very soon. Let us know if you're interested. smile emoticon
