Yes, i had a week or two out with flu this spring much closer to the race and it didn't seem to do me any harm - you may be able to treat it as a cut-back week and pile on a bit of extra training when you are up and running, but make sure you really are better before doing that!

Just entered Manchester for next April. Training is a way off. Spring marathons work much better than autumn for me, basically cos cycling in the winter is a bit shit whereas running is much more pleasant. Summer is the reverse, especially when hot. Hoping for a good campaign and similar improvement to the 5mins I did this year, though that's probably optimistic. Plenty of time to adjust that later.
