I grew up – nicely, received older no less than – in Avondale Heights in Melbourne’s western suburbs.

The primary place I bought was a unit and what I cherished about it was that it was mine, I felt nice pleasure in proudly owning my first little bit of actual property.

My very first house was the place my eldest son, of 4 youngsters, began his life, so all my finest reminiscences of that home are of him rising up.

It sounds cliche, however all one of the best reminiscences contain our youngsters working freely across the property or driving their buggies, watching our three canines run round after them.
