One of the differences with living in France to the UK is Christmas holidays, in the UK most industry's closes down for the holidays, usually running from the 24th of December till the 2nd of January, the French prefer to take there holidays when the suns shining, makes sense to me, so Christmas holidays are just the two main days, Christmas day and New Years Day.
I've not been well, I've got a virus, started on my Birthday, I thought I had a cold as Paul and Mike had a had a touch of man flu so didn't bother visiting the Doctors, I just bought some medication from the chemist, but after Christmas came and went I still wasn't well, I had a cough, a sore throat and I was being sick, I didn't eat a lot and no alcohol, NO ALCOHOL, that shows how ill I was.

New Years Eve, our neighbours Franck, Nadette, Mike and Violaine came for dinner, I was able to eat and have a little to drink so I'm on the mend, but still not completely cured.
