Most people who have been to the UK recently come back with the flu, so perhaps you have been geting a bit to close to someone in that position.

Could you be bothered to pick up a 20 euro note if one was on the ground?

If not, and you aren't stinking rich, then you have flu.

If you have the strength to pich up 20 euros then it's just a cold, no matter how bad you feel.

Get some FRENADOL from the farmacia. Costs about 5.30 euro for a box. Word of warning though if you are alergic to caffeine......There are two different coloured boxes, one red, one blue. The red box contains cafeine the blue box doesn't. I was advised to get some when I had a very bad cold a few months ago and was sold the red box, I became very ill as I didn't realise there was cafeine in it...and I am alergic to caffeine. I just couldn't function and was very sick. It is good stuff though, provided you get the correct coloured box. Play safe - buy the blue box

Oh...and OH is ill now, got the Frenadol this morning

Next October have a free flu jab There is no such thing as man flu here in Spain its awful and lasts for about 6-8 weeks. Had a flu jab last October no probs to date prior to this had the most awful flu/cough that would not go away for the first two January's I arrived here. I just ordered lots of heavy duty batteries for Mrs Ps " Toys" so during illness I was not called upon to carry out my role as Purveyor of pleasure in the bedroom.
