Nope, in England it is up to one month according to both my Doctor and diabetes nurse.
:shock: Are you absolutely certain that is what your Doctor and diabetes nurse say, BE?

:lol: It's very strange, because the NHS says differently. See the link below...

Blood glucose levels vary throughout the day and from day to day, but HbA1c gives an average of what the glucose is over a longer 2-3 month period. HbA1c should be measured regularly but not too frequently. You will normally be tested every three to six months

I think that pretty much everyone accepts that it measures blood sugar levels for 2-3 months apart from BE doctor and nurse

Nothing at all so far - all doom and gloom here with friends being ill and others passing away - hate the phone ringing at the moment.

Landlady rang tonight to tell us that the rent is going up by 70€ per month, no letter previously received, nor the message which she says she left. She got my wife who, with all sweetness and light, quibbled. As landlady is old French, my wife said to her that, in francs, that was an enormous rise. Short pause while landlady reflected, agreed to increase it by only 20€, and hung up on her. :lol: It pays to remind the oldies sometimes of costs in francs.

I popped in to post exactly that, Elizabeth. It’s a lovely story and beyond the call of duty. I was concerned about what the big bosses would say about it, but the boss praised him, thank goodness. Alec certainly brought good publicity for the bus company.

Sounds good, bubbles.

We went round to our son’s house for coffee in the garden; it was bitterly cold but dry with the sun popping out from the clouds now and again. We had a really good chat with our son and DIL, our granddaughters rushing in and out telling us their news. I went home with frozen feet and numb fingers, but it was the best morning for a whIle.
