We Lived Here

We used to live here between 2007-2009. It may have been a nice pub a long time ago and it still looked ok when this photo was taken which was the year I was born, but from the time we moved in from the time we moved out we shared the house with hundreds of mice! I'm glad we're gone but I bet the mice still live there!.
