The Claise ConneXion Meets Again

I decided it was high time the Claise ConneXion group for social networking got together again after a break of some months while we worked our busiest year ever with clients and simultaneously dispaired about Brexit. So I invited everyone to afternoon tea on Australia Day, enticing them with fruit cake and mulled cider. I know from experience that French people like fruit cake once they've tried it, although it is not part of the French culinary lexicon. And of course there would be plenty of Brits to enjoy it as well. I was a bit surprised that mulled cider was deemed too weird to even try by several French people, but since we had assorted wine, regular cider and apple juice supplied by others, no one actually went thirsty. About 20 people turned up and it was quite good and bilingual. We had Canadians, English, French, and a Dutch American. About half a dozen people were first timers and they had a good time so that was nice, especially as most of them had travelled quite a distance.
