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.

What a beautiful random act of kindness. After a pretty crappy week headed up the street near the crossing I found a envelope saying merry Christmas take me. I opened it and there was a scratchy in it and a Christmas card. Thanks so much for making my day and merry Christmas to you also.
