Nicole ‘s family invited some of us to her settling in party in the downstairs lounge so that she could meet a few new faces. Her family and some of their friends were there including four children which was nice. Quite a few of us had visitors anyway so they all joined in and had a glass of champagne and some nibbles with us and we all chatted to each other. We had lovely biscuits and chocolates served off pretty cake plates as well as other nibbles. Olga recited a poem then sang a song in French. Nicole said at the end what a lovely afternoon it had been.
