More Wedding & a Boxing Day LO

Bridal Party

Boxing Day Clay Shoot

Martin decided that as it was his first Xmas in his own home, he wanted to mark the occasion by organising something completely different.

So he came up with the idea of a Clay Shoot. It was so much fun. Us girls kept the scores stood by the fire & we breaked half way through for food. Hot chilli, thick wholesome soup & jacket potatoes. Real bonfire night fodder. Followed by Martin's mum, Joyce's sherry trifle, yum!!!!!

The men had 50 clays each & believe me, it isn't as easy as it looks to hit them!!!

Martin won with a score of 23, Tony (his BIL) came 2nd with 22, our Dad & Martin's Dad came in joint 3rd with 10 & Kev got 9. But they had such great fun... It was completely different & I really enjoyed it.

Hi Paula
Clay pigeon shooting - brilliant - I have never tried that, maybe next year.

Sounds loads of fun and that food must have been just perfect after a day in the chilly outside :-) My friend does this competitively, and does it well too - won loads of cups and that, but she's a proper country girl, farmer's daughter and all that... Lol!

Only time I ever shot a gun, was when I was about 17, and it put me on my bum in the field! haha!
