Gjeannie - take a breather and have a sit down!!!   My little package should be with you tomorrow 

Oh, and by the way,all the money that Pudsey and Children in Need raise is spent on children in the UK.  I know you'll be interested to know that very many of the children I worked with benefited hugely from Children in Need funding.

Posting the photo can take a bit of time. When I was new I thought it didn't work because I didn't wait long enough.

The fig stays outside - it's in a big terracotta pot in the southeast corner of the terrace - it's a Brown Turkey and they're pretty tough - I wouldn't normally be fleecing it except in really hard frosts, but the little fruit have started to swell early this year because of the mild winter, so I'm just being ultra cautious.
