Don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone

My next door neighbours moved out today. I’ve lived here 28 years and they were there before me. For me they’ve been the perfect neighbours. We’ve not lived in each other’s pockets. Mostly it was just a nod hello every few weeks but a couple of times they have been immeasurably helpful to me. They’ve not been nosy or interfering and I’m really sorry that they’ve gone.

I’ve been closer to them since they said they were leaving and this last few days we’ve had a couple of tearful hugs. I hope they’ll be very happy where they’ve gone and please let my new neighbours be just as good.
