If you do, merry christmas (and if you don't - all the best wishes anyway).

We have house guests for a few days, so no festive padding for me this year; but long holiday weeks can happen once they go home!

I did get made to wear some very discreet padding out & about to do some last minute shopping & a trip to the christmas market the other day; extra festive hot drinks & big crowds with not many public toilets meant it seemed like a good "safety net". And you know what - it was.
