Haven't been out for a curry for an age .............

However, plans are afoot to go here before too long http://www.thebelgianmonk.com/pdf/food.pdf - their Moules et frites are wonderful .... and so is everything else - tartiflette to die for 

They sell more than 15 tonnes of mussels per year!!!  And look at their beer menu http://www.thebelgianmonk.com/pdf/beer.pdf !!!

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.

And you're a gardener!!! Patience should be your second name

Morning Lily 

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.

I think I'd pot them up individually in specialist citrus compost.
