Hello all,

Can't believe it's been over eighteen months since I was last on here.

I was very sorry to read of Simons passing Emma. Such a sad loss and far too young.

I'm not sure how many of you on here remember Steve Masters? He was living in Porto when I joined. He returned to the UK a few years ago. Not sure if he was still on here or not. Sadly Steve passed away yesterday (Sunday), 2 months after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He was 52 years old.

I hope that other familiar names are still here, that you are all well.... and I send you all best wishes.. xx

I have a feeling Steve may have posted on here as tivinho. Hope I haven't got that wrong but I'm sure a lot of the members on here would remember that name - he always had a lot of interesting stuff to say and no, he hasn't been around for some long time.

52 is tragically young.

And hi, Cally - hope you're doing well.

Hi Cally

Welcome back from me sadly in Liverpool but not for long. I only came back to help with Mum going into a care home and now I am counting the days when I can return to my home.

Although not quite as busy as the Forum had been you will recognise many who are still alive and kicking and enjoying life in Portugal.

Any news on your long awaited move?

Good luck

Hi all, sorry for delay in reply.

Tivinho, that was it X Camone, knew he was under a different name but couldn't remember what.

Things still very much the same for me, still in Welsh Borderlands. Still not got to Portugal. Though did end up with a Portuguese boyfriend for a while. Sadly that didn't last either lol.

I must try and catch up on here more often. Shall have to have a look through, see if any names I recognise.

I hope you are all keeping well?? Xx

Hello Cally
We’re probably newer additions than you might remember. Old Bloke and Topmast still very much about; Ana - is she the lady from Canada? If so, I’m sure she’s been on here within the past year at least, although time does fly..increasingly... M&M
