For me, the thing that motivates me every day is chickens. Yep. Chickens. I want to have my own chickens one day. That means moving to a bigger house, with a bigger garden, preferably rural or near the sea. I want to create a little oasis for me, my OH, Poppy, any and all future animals that may join our little family. I’ve written about previously here. The dream of wanting something else, something different, our own little rural idyll, is what gets me up everyday. Even on those dark days. That and Poppy needing the loo!
