Been a little quiet on the practical shooting front for the last couple of weeks. Since getting back from Gran Canaria I have had to withdraw from 2 competitions due to injury and illness.

Missing both matches was even more of a shitter as I've been wanting to get out in my new @lantac_uk @lantac_usa shirt courtesy of @madaboutshooting
It was about time I got some new threads for shooting in... 😀

Walls made of paper 😞
This is my 1000th post on Instagram. I could think of nothing more than posts of my girls for number 1000!
We recently went on Bubbs first abroad holiday, and our first holiday post covid.
We had a great time with fabulous food and lovely views and a boat load of sunshine!
It was a lovely time, wish we could be back there now!

Chiquitos, cocktails and Jurrassic Park at the cinema!
Great day. Chilling with the little one watching Glasto now...
