Goodbye, cute city!

I may have mentioned before that I live underneath what is called "Cute City". Cute City is inhabited by a very nice mom, a very nice dad, a very cute baby girl and a very cute puppy dog.
It's pretty fun living there sometimes. Mostly when you come home from work all grumpy and whatnot... and you open the gate to be greeted by a baby and a puppy! Then you start talking in your high voice and totally forget about the fact that you were grumpy up until 5 seconds ago.

Hence why I am so sad about the fact that cute city is moving away!

That's right, friends. The landlords are moving away! I really don't know how to feel about it. We kind of wanted to move anyways so this actually works out better for us in a way... but it's kind of bittersweet. They are seriously the best landlords ever. Not many people would be willing to come downstairs in the middle of the night to kill a mouse. Or come downstairs at 6am for the same reason. Or give detailed explanations of the exact species of ant that has been spotted in the vicinity of the house. Or give you free lettuce from the garden... or give you 3 bottles of wine at Christmas to make up for the fact that in November of that year you were totally at home and trying to sleep when there was a baby being born in their bedroom upstairs.

They are moving in October and I think that it is probably likely that we will end up moving as well. It just wouldn't be the same, living there with new people. I guess we all have to move on sometime, don't we?

So farewell, cute city! Good luck, and I will miss your smiling baby and puppy kisses. (Oh, and you too, grown ups! You're alright, kids.)
