Times are tough, and everything can seem like it's all falling apart, hopeless and negative. But it doesn't have to be that way.
So, in an effort to try to brighten your day, we've started a project to put together a 'Good News Diary' full of the most positive stories and comments from the Mudgee Guardian every week.
Expect a new entry every Friday afternoon to cap off your week and practice a bit of self-care.

Quick shout to all the lovely staff at Maccas! It's complete chaos there atm and wait times are frustrating-BUT none of you deserve the shitty abuse that I saw a customer hurl at you! I'm sure you are all doing your best and I hope your day improves.

I would like to say THANK YOU, to our local Aus post delivery lady, Vanessa. She always has a friendly hello and quick chat. Yesterday I foolishly took up her time as I queried what I expected to be a box that was meant to be left at my address. I searched everywhere on my deck and after she spent time searching through her manifest pages we found it in the mailbox after she suggested it. She took my mistake in her stride and was accepting of my apology for wasting her time. The parcel was missing some goods so should have been in a box bigger than mailbox size but next time I will check. So thank you for being patient with me!
