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..

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.

Thank you. So much to learn..... :)

If you are going to replace your washer ask as many questions as  you can, I have made a costly mistake  buy not asking relevant questions,  I am not a happy bunny, written about this previously, we have had to buy something that inflates to stop it moving  about and shaking all over the place,  drives me mad, I put it on and walk away now till I hear the stop noise, don't have to watch it, not that I stand and watch it but I do have to work in the kitchen.

Thank you, well this one is the same as sonís and they were pleased with it, but  not me!
So yes I will.
There is a pretty local firm we got all our electrical things from, very obliging
and no hassle at all.
This washer is not flexible enough for me.
As it has a 9 kg wash capacity good for a family but I hate washing lying in the basket .
When were going on holiday we wore  the last day clothes  we could throw away ,so no washing left.
I used to dread last minute shopping in case I got run over and was taken to hospital in my rags!
Dishcloth chucked out and new one in place ,face cloths etc etc !
Barmy is what my husband used to say , but so lovely to come home to .
Anyway, yes I will read it all up on here , I never liked Hotpoint goods .
Zanussi have a good reputation ,so Iíll do my homework.
Scorching already - have shielded the pond ,need to bake the cake for party tomorrow,scones fresh in the morning.
Hope everyone is well ,a worry though as I think too much too soon re the latest proposed easing of lockdown.
Cheerio folks ,

Viktoria.

Viktoria - I can highly recommend Zanussi I've always had them and found then adaptable, good variety of programmes and will do small loads....
when I had my new kitchen 19 yrs ago now I got talked into having combined washer/dryer.... never again it went wrong, the dryer board burnt out so ditched it and back to just a washer... still zannusi though..

My you are doing well with your baking! It's too hot here to do anything! At 8.30am this morning it was already 20C now it up to 27C... love to have a swimming pool handy for a dip...

I think you may be right too much to quickly!

Take care try not to overheat

Washer man came but I was quite annoyed, I did not let him through the house, as he could go round the side and my gate is in the side lane, kitchen door wide open
No gloves or anything ,I stayed in the lounge but he wanted info,what had happened etc so I stayed well away from him etc.
He could find nothing wrong despite the machine having moved a good way from its original,position.
Said as my last load was wool programme was for wool but I had mixed some  synthetics like Acrilan in,the machine could tell and would not work properly!
He put it on spin and yes empty it was fine .
Forms filled out etc and off he went leaving me wiping everything down !
I was not sure whether to laugh or swear, if the machine is so intelligent I donít want to be on my own with the darn thing! ::)
Dum de dum de dum de diddledy de ( Sorcererís Apprentice- all the soap suds and mad mops!)
Cheerio folk ,I will wait to bake until cooler, all stuff weighed out .


I donít think I have heard anything like that before!
But a big load of whites blowing in the sun and breeze so we will see.
Viktoria.

Sounds like he was trying to pull the wool over your eyes.... sorry for the pun!
What is it with repair men that they think we housewife women are dumb and taken in by the rubbish they tell you because in reality they probably haven't got the foggiest idea themselves...
So sorry Viktoria- I hope you can put a load straight in to check its working ok and if not throw the book at them!

Thank goodness the test was expedited  swiftly and was negative.

The privet will still be there tomorrow.  :)

and the day after and with a poor weather forecast the day after that!
