    I have had a nasty bout of man flu (well, a bad cold) since christmas day that doesnt seem to be getting any better. I did a full day yesterday. I was fine whilst working but couldnt stop shaking when I got back home. The days work seems to have made matters worse. My question is, when faced with a bad bout of man flu what do people do........work through it or let the body rest?

    I have cancelled all of todays jobs.

    I've got the shakes anyhow due to old age. I've lost count how many dancing comps I won just by walking from the bar to the toilet. The cheeky beggers :D
