Falling in love with inanimate objects

My last precious days in York are flying by. We have a crazy couple of weeks in store as we must now pack up six months of our lives and condense them into three suitcases. This is not going to be easy. On top of that, we have to empty our rental property. We could not find a furnished property to rent when we first arrived here and so we had to rent a place unfurnished which meant acquiring belongings. Now we must remove these belongings. All of them. Cups, plates, cutlery, towels, linen, chairs, beds, toaster, kettle and so on. I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks.

But the hardest, most difficult thing for me will be saying goodbye to Busby. Busby is my bicycle, a bakfiets. Is it possible to form an attachment to an inanimate object? Because I love my bicycle and I don’t want to sell it, which has always been our plan. Oh, what to do?
