  6. Huh - Chance would be a fine thing......I just wish I could get an appointment with ANY GP! Pot luck seems to be the order of the day at the Health Centre - sit on the phone for 45mins then be told there are "no appointments left today"
  7. I did'nt know you could get through at the bottom - that's a great shortcut. Whe are we going to get a by-pass road from Hoofields to the Sandy Loch Drive area, I'm fed up of having to go through the Town to get form one side to the other.
  8. We got caught up in last weekend's delays - travelling down on Wed and back on Sun night and I dont know what all the fuss was about, both trips were a little bumpy, but what do you expect in January in Shetland? I have been on trips heaps worse with P & O and at least they sailed when it got a bit rough! The reason for getting in so late is simply that the boat now slows down when it gets rough to make it more comfortable for passengers - so there is no such thing as a "rough" trip any more - I was actually quite disapointed - lying flat on my bunk, most of the time it was positively pleasant!
