In the last couple of weeks we've managed to rehome a few domestic birds and a lovely woodpigeon that wasn't able to ever be released due to a broken wing. It's wonderful when you know that a bird is going off to an amazing new home where they will be looked after and loved.
Working full-time and trying to juggle my writing and my birds has been a struggle, particularly given my M.E. Sometimes I can feel myself on the brink of exhaustion and I know that one day its going to hit me with full force and completely knock me off my feet. So far I've been lucky - when I've felt like I've been getting to the end I've somehow managed to have an extra wave of energy - but I know that luck won't last forever.
Finding time for my writing is like finding a little break in the madness and chaos - it's something I'd simply never be able to give up no matter what.
