IPv6 - Sheer Madness!

..but I can help. Maybe. I've got IPv6 working but I was just wondering what my public IP address was. According to the TBB test page (xxx added by me):

Your IPv6 address on the public Internet appears to be 2a02:xxxxx:48b9

If I do ipconfig/all on my laptop I get:

IPv6 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 2a02:xxxxx:c68a(Preferred)
Temporary IPv6 Address. . . . . . : 2a02:xxxxxx:48b9(Preferred)
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::226:22ff:fe1c:c68a%11(Preferred)
