A picture is worth a thousand words

The first impression of this picture is ‘what well-behaved dogs.’ And for the split-second this picture was taken, indeed they were. However, immediately after they both liberated some baubles from the Christmas tree and proceeded to chase them around the house.

A big shout out to our local council

When my husband and I moved to the Mudgee region we did it for a tree change in preparation for our retirements. We are 30 years away from being locals, but our decision was based on well-researched factors. We had a choice of areas to move to.

We are 30 years away from being locals

My husband’s only criterion was good wine. However, I wanted somewhere that promoted the arts. Mudgee boasts a booming arts culture, and the Mid Western Regional Council are 100% behind this. And to prove my beliefs Mid Western Regional Council has again supported the Mudgee Valley Writers in promoting beginning and emerging writers with sponsorship for our competition and exhibition.

A big thank you to our local council—who would want to live anywhere else?
