Hi, I'm Helen, otherwise known as Ossie.
I was born in England, but my parents moved to Ferragudo in Portugal when I was 6 years old so I speak both English and Portuguese fluently.
Now I own a house in a place called Relvinha, 10 km away from the nearest town (Aljezur). I am a pet sitter, and am also a volunteer for the animal charity, ADAP (Associação de Defesa dos Animais de Portimão). At the moment I've got 12 dogs and 2 cats living with me, all of them rescued from the streets and most of them looking for new homes!
Our kids Rosa (age 8) and César (age 5) speak Both English and Portuguese are usually very shy when they first meet people, but love having the chance to meet new kids.
