Hi all, thanks for all of your kind comments yesterday - the sad news I've had is that my Grancha is in hospital in Wales. He had three heart attacks last week and it's been up and down with his recovery, so it's been difficult being so far away from home. I am praying that he hangs on until I go back to Wales in November :)
So now that we are in spring here in NZ, the bf and I have been trying to get out and about a bit more! We've recently started playing badminton (something which I haven't done for over three years!).
|NB: that is not me, just a girl who played on our court previously!|
|Yes, looking LESS than glamorous here, but I had just finished a LONG day at work! ;)|
|The best use I could find for the raquets!! hahaha|
We played again last night, and despite being hit on the head twice and the nose once, apparently I am improving!
On Sunday we went clay pigeon shooting!! I have wanted to do this for AGES! We each had ten shots, and I actually managed to shoot TWO clay pigeons! Whoop!
|Gorgeous day for it!|
|The bf with the rifle|
|He did well and hit quite a lot of his clays|
|Me "Erm this gun is actually really heavy!"|
|The guy was really nice and gave me tips|
|Did I get it?!|
We also had a go at the pistol target practice. This was less fun!
|I'd hit the leaves of the trees in the forest!|
|The bf's sheet. He had a bullseye (which he enjoyed showing off about!)|
We had a couple of goes at the archery, but it really hurt my fingertips and chipped SEVERAL nails (I know!) so I had enough of that, thanks very much!
Have you ever been clay pigeon shooting?! What are your hobbies?
