Everybody was kung-flu fighting, those bugs were as fast as lightning!

Okay, it may not be the best title for a blog and you’ll have to be of a certain age to get it (and if you do, you’ll probably be humming the tune!) but it’s that time of year again when practices are preparing for flu season and hopefully putting the wind behind the sails
