- Hi girls! I have a question for you. Would you be available next Saturday to come for dinner at my place? - Yes, as it happens, we were supposed to visit Marc's aunt, but she has just cancelled this morning. - I was thinking of doing my laundry on Saturday evening, but this is a much better offer! What time would you like to start? - I'd say around 7pm, and we'll have an aperitif on the terrace. - Perfect! And I could bring my famous apple tart for dessert. - Thanks, that would be fantastic! - See you on Saturday then!
