One of the things about living in France people back home don’t always understand is that we don’t eat baguettes every day, we don’t use a nice Bandol Rosé wine as mouth wash and it isn’t always hot and sunny all year round. The months from November to March can bring some pretty dull, grey, wet, windy & generally naff ‘British’ weather to what is usually (and how most people relate to) a warm, nice place to live.
This brings with it sickness – the every day cold, bad chest, sore throat and flu, but this year a new strain of flu is making its way around the Cote d’Azur…..Man Flu!!!! An easy to catch, hard to shake, knee trembling form of flu that spreads fear into the heart of the every day nice guy!!!
The following report gives a few signs to look out for, and life saving tips if someone you know gets ‘Man-Flu’. Not suitable for young children.
