Throwback Thursday : our new home .. 1979

The week has flashed by and it’s Thursday yet again … it’s nearly Friday, but I still qualify for a Throwback Thursday post as I have two hours to go before ‘Cinderella time’  when Friday begins !!!

The homes we have lived in comes to an end in this post .. we still live here!!!  We started building in Weltevreden Park in late 1979 and moved into our new home in February 1980.  Foundations marked out …
