Steamed up glasses, when wearing a mask:

I was told by a steward at Burton Hospital last week - smear the inside of your lenses with washing-up liquid, then wipe clean.

I've only ever worn a mask once (that particular day), so can't vouch for the truth of his method.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

Good to hear you had a negative result Zetlander but poor you having a chest cold and temperature. It does sound like you're feeling better today if you were even thinking of trimming the privet. A bit of procrastination doesn't hurt.  :)

Thank goodness the test was expedited  swiftly and was negative.

The privet will still be there tomorrow.  :)

Glad the test was negative.
 You are all being so busy ,especially those making scrubs and masks.

Washer repair tomorrow,I hate this washer and half hope it is not reparable,as I have a contract which will replace it if not.

Bad bread day today!

First loaf not very good,made another and that seems ok
Got to have nice bread for salmon butties on Thursday!.

Wonder why meat processing factories have so many positive tests among their work forces?
China,UK ,Germany.
Doctors advising face covering generally ,on News tonight.

Lovely afternoon after a cool dull start.
I spent it making working room in utility room for washer engineer.
Hope everyone is well ,and gets a good nightís sleep.
Viktoria.

Oh my such a lot to catch up on!
Glad you got your ink cartridge sorted in the end... it's difficult to know what time some of these places are open... if you look online it's not always correct...gave a little drive out though.

Glad to hear test was nrpehative and quite impressed with the speed of test and result... at least you can breath easy now!

I did gave a laugh at tge description of tge mask as a bikini top... but you're quite right they do look a bit like that... won't tell you what my OH said they looked like 😱..
If you use either short piece of pipe cleaner or florist wire (wrapped with electrical tape at the ends) and sew it with zigzag stitch on the inside of seam over the curved nose bit it can then be shaped and should help with not steaming up glasses... apparently..
Good to hear washing repair man coming just a pity you've got to clear out the cupboard first...
Looks
Ike it's going to be a hot one for the tea party on Thursday!

Very frustrating typing a whole screed for it to then disappear... happened to me more than once!

Definitely.
As one who has had to wear a mask every working day for 40 plus years the key is to get it tight over the bridge of your nose, and then place your glasses over. 
If itís a particularly cold morning heat your glasses up.
