There is an apple tree in the garden where I live. It runs alongside the six-foot tall fence and stretches above it's end. My parents care for it, having grown it from a sapling.
I feel sometimes as if i am living my life through a lens. A filter that makes me see things differently to others. I find the most boring things fantastical, and some of the most amazing things, tiresome. I see beauty, reverence and admiration where others do not and where I was raised to not.
Heavy curtains open up like my reluctant eyelids, letting in light and warmth from the new day. Brown roof tiles peek out under years of moss and birds begin to whoosh here and there, occasionally landing on the dew-soaked growths to look to the ground; where tasty prizes squirm and wiggle. Grass appears to perk up, windows open, and the world seems to turn once more.
Having studied animal welfare for 5 years, the Animal Welfare Act 2006 is a piece of UK legislation that I am more than familiar with. However, it has taken a few of those years to gain an understanding of what everything means. Therefore, I am writing up a simplified version using simple language to help others who may be questioning the legality of others actions.
