Windmill Road, Adeyfield. It was a kitchen in the front, which I didn’t like. I wanted the one with the bay window, opposite, but being as they offered me a house and I’d lived with my mother from when I got married in ‘43 until ‘52 when I came down here and I knew I was going to have a house, I came down to see Mrs Penny and she said well I could wait for one but that meant for my husband to keep travelling backwards and forwards until these houses were build. So I said, oh it’s so lovely to know I’m going to have a house of my own, and I took the kitchen in the front. Oh no, oh yes there was, there was a ‘H Type’ that you could wait for in Adeyfield and there was the ‘S Type’. Oh well we thought it was lovely, didn’t we, oh god we were over the moon. Yes, yes I was very pleased with it, yes.
