Bonjour mon ami,
All has become crystal clear post claret. If I knew the difference between Roman numerals for 5 instead of 6 I would not have got my invocation mixed up with invitation!!(the clue now makes more sense as well!) As to spelling pence as pense I can only plead the case that I have spent centimes or cents for the past 15 years!! With the value of the bankrupt pound sterling so low aganst the euro I shall soon be spending the equivalent of the Ngwee!! Thank God the fuel, booze and smokes are cheaper than the UK!!
Have a good day!! England to beat the West Indies!!
