Music Monday

I found this song a few months back and thought that it was worthy of sharing for Music Monday. It's by a Russian singer called Sergey Lazarev. I hope that you like it as much as I do, translation below.



Translation:
I cannot fly, but when I'm with you I am floating
I do not like to surrender, but to you I am ready to lose
and even if instantly I have to lose my freedom
I do not like to repeat, but I will repeat again, how much I love you

On a dangerous pulse, I cannot stop
I am about to explode from this love
the ice is melting and the trigger is ready
and it hits the heart with a kiss


Go crazy, then die for a few hours
but die of happiness, not from a bullet to the temple
fly high and crash again
come back to reality
and lose your heartbeat


Go crazy, then die for a few hours
let time slip away, like sand between your fingers
fall asleep and wake up again
touch my hands
and lose your heartbeat


I am not ready to promise, I do npt know how to be, I'm scared to lose
I didn't want to talk, but if suddenly you leave I won't be able to let you go
maybe we just shouldn't believe those words we always repeat
and maybe it isn't easy - we'll reach the stars , to learn how to fly


On a dangerous pulse, I won't stop
I'm about to explode because of this love
the ice is melting and the trigger is ready
the kiss flies and hits the heart


go crazy, then die for a few hours
but die of happiness, not from a bullet to the temple
fly high and crash again
return back to reality
and lose your heartbeat


go crazy, then die for a few hours
let time slip away, like sand between fingers
fall asleep and wake up again
touch my hands
and lose your heartbeat


Recognize me, from a thousand faces
give me your hand, when I call your name
don't hurry, close your eyes
listen to my heart beat
only for you
I'm here with you, and I love you


Go crazy, then die for a few hours
but die of happiness, not from a bullet to the temple
fly high and crash again
return back to reality
and lose your heartbeat


Go crazy, then die for a few hours
let time slip away, like sand between your fingers
fall asleep and wake up again
touch my hands
and lose your heartbeat

National Ladies Shooting Day

Apologies dear reader for the absence of recent posts, one has been somewhat caught up with work and the General Election Campaign 2015. Now that the Conservatives are back in power with a majority this allows me a bit more time to blog.
Today was the day I went to my first ever clay pigeon shooting event organised by the Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club. As part of National Ladies Shooting Day the club had organised taster days across the country where ladies could book to have a go at shooting under the instruction of a seasoned expert.
My nearest event was at the E.J. Churchill ground in Buckinghamshire and after a few wrong turns (mostly due to the Sat Nav and my lack of sense of direction) I arrived. Ladies of all ages were in attendance and had been grouped into teams according to ability. After a quick cup of coffee it was off with our instructor to have a go at some of the pegs.
Our instructor for the day was a lovely older gentleman called Terry who took my team through the basics of a 20 gauge shot gun, gun safety and the techniques for shooting on a teal, rabbit and driven pegs.
I had been clay pigeon shooting a couple of times before but it was great to have some tuition on how to do it properly and correct any mistakes I was making. After a few off shots I got into my stride and managed to hit the clays. After 30 shots across the pegs my total score was 22. Not bad for a beginner!
After the shooting it was back to the lodge for some delicious homemade cakes and a cup of coffee. The selection was so delicious it was hard to pick what to have! In the end I chose the chocolate brownie cake, which did not disappoint.
The day was sponsored by Browning so after the cake there was a chance to try some of their guns on the ground before the winners of the day were announced. I was delighted to have come top in my team and been awarded a Browning shooting cap and protective glasses.
I would like to thank the Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club for organising the day. It was great to meet fellow members and bond over clay pigeon shooting and tasty cake. If you have the opportunity to attend a future day I would thoroughly recommend it!
