shetlandpeat Posted December 23, 2009 Report Share Posted December 23, 2009 Well, I had been in Lerwick for a couple of days, folk were worrying about the milenium bug and stuff like that. Christmas Day I went to my Aunty Kays with my Dad for Christmas dinner, and could not eat a thing. Boxing Day was struck down with the flu and stayed in bed on and off till 30th. Nursing myself with nightnurse, whiskey and any other remedy I could find.As I woke New Years Eve I could hear my Dad sneezing and spluttering, but, I felt better.Then it started, milled about town for a start, met folk at the Cross, went to a party, I remember the light beams crossing the sky and folk stayed around for quite along time. My cousins and myself went to a party above Ians chipper, and the Lounge was on the TeeVee several times (even Johnathon Peel (rip) mentioned that a good time was to be had in Lerwick as the Lounge seemed to be the only place still buzzing past 2 am in the country). Then the Hop. Peat Stack at the Clickamin if I remember right. And the Hang over on the 3rd. Off to the lounge, there was a sad moment on the 4th and I eventually went back to the Big Smoke a week or so later. And the noughties rolled in...and my computer still worked, as did the GPS but some software did not work cos the dates started at 1900 and not 00.
