Ill Again?

So this is the second time in just over a month i’ve had the symptons and illness of flu. This was has come on pretty rapid as i keep going hot and cold.

Surely you can’t get the flu twice in a month? The first time this year I became ill was on the 12th November, I had to go to several theme parks and slug through it as i’m not going to lose out on holidays just for a crappy flu.

But now i’m back home, settled and back into the work routine. So this hits me out of the blue. Feel weak, aching all over, headache and I keep going hot and cold. Let’s just hope this is a 24 hour thing as I don’t want anyone in my house to catch this just before Xmas!

Man flu is definitely real people! Stay safe!

Quiet on the Ashbosh Front!

Holy Hell! It’s been several months since I last made a blog on here. Apologies for all you Boshley fans for I am alive and well.

Loads has happened since I last updated on here… I have been active over on my YouTube account if you didn’t know! If you’d like to see more then just search Ashthetash and you’ll see my ugly mug!

I recently got an infection in my nads. Nads is a slang word for testicles if you aren’t from the North East of England. It was so painful I had to take a trip to the doctors who confirmed I had got a thing called Orchitis. He wasn’t best pleased I left it so long before seeing him. But as a man you will put off anything for as long as you can before going to see your GP. Especially when you know he has to touch your b*llocks!

I have a course of antibiotics to take to rid myself of this annoying ailment. However the testicle swelling was pretty cool looking, but the pain that came with is was so extreme I’d rather lose the impressive size than have to feel that pain anymore. I finish the tablets on Saturday which is good as i have suffered from a few side effects on them. But the stomach pains and aches are kids stuff compared to the pain of Orchitis. If you are a female I can only liken the pain to child birth. It was like being kicked full force in the nads 24/7. But the pain has subsided alot now and it’s business as usual down there again, yipee!

Also my family took a trip to Berwick-Upon-Tweed which was great. Kody our youngest one however wasn’t very well the entire trip. That was kinda rough for him as well as Nicola and myself. What made it worse was the fact we had to sleep with him on top of the cushions off the couch on a night. That sucked. But Madison and Travis had a great time and enjoyed it immensely.

I might make another little series on here and link in the Berwick videos as my Keswick series got alot of attention which was lovely.

Well I promise I’ll try and blog more as I have really let the team down haven’t I?!

Thanks for reading you sexy lot, see you all soon!

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary

So today October 7th 2011, me and my wife Nicola celebrate 5 years of marriage. If your a traditionalist the theme for this wedding anniversary is wood. That’s correct….wood.

I’d just like to thank my wife for loving me, giving me 2 1/2 beautiful children, and supporting me through good times and bad, ranging from depression to losing family members. She is my rock, my soul mate, and I love every fibre of her being.

She completes me, so thank you Nicola.

Have a good day everyone.

Couch To 5K

Well I need to lose wait, like I blogged way back last year not much has changed. I gained a ton more weight is what happened.

Well i’m taking slow steps to improve my health, and i’ve started an app on my phone called C25K by Get Running.

It appears very good and i’m enjoying it so far, the voice over keeps you going and lets you know at what stage you are at in each portion of the session.

I am currently in week 3 of my app and today I ran for 90 seconds followed by 90 seconds rest, then 3 minutes of running and after that 3 minutes walking. This is a great way to increase fitness and I shall be doing this until I can run a 5K without the need to walk! Pretty good this app!
