  1. http://www.shetland.gov.uk/news-advice/Festiveopeningtimes.asp Not all SIC services shut down. Some staff are working as normal. Depends on the service.
  2. Wonderful, naughty, funny entertainment. Scottish Opera - please come back! The stage sets were very good. The bar scene was striking. And the fly/sex scene - what can I say!
  3. Anyone tried to book flights through Flybe website this weekend? Advert in Shetland Times says 25% off, every seat, every flight. We've tried and the price only appears to reflect the ADS discount not the 25% disc as well.
  4. Has anyone flown with their children lately? We are flying with our 2 year old in May with Flybe and I'm unsure what ID she needs? The Flybe website isn't very clear. Do they need their own passport? Do I add her to my passport? Or do I just take her Birth Certificate?
  5. Anyone have experience of this type of car seat: http://www.mamasandpapas.com/product-cybex-pallas-2-in-1-berry/119458300/type-i/ There is also a similar one by Jane, called Montecarlo plus with Xtend Group 1 impact shield. I would interested to hear from anyone using this type of car seat.
  6. I've used Patient line a couple of times. Use email and internet. There is a keypad, it's small, but managable. From memory, keypad is approx 3" x 6". I used headphones (they are provided), but wish I had taken my own. It was a life saver in the middle of the night when you couldn't sleep!

    Just heard it is cancelled.

    Anyone heard if they are still coming or have they cancelled?
  9. http://www.shetland-news.co.uk/ from the front page on Shetland News website NOTE FROM POLICE - 10.50am In the interest of safety, Police are advising against ALL travel on Shetland is it that bad out there?
  10. Apart from phoning up the bus company, anyone know how to find out which buses are running? Nothing on here: http://www.zettrans.org.uk/news/ Or here http://www.shetland.gov.uk/council/
  11. (** mod edit - merged with existing thread **) Anyone know if the schools are closed tomorrow? I've listened to Radio Shetland just before 1pm, but there was nothing on there about closures.
  12. Recently went to the Scalloway hotel, disappointing as I had previously had really good meals there. But this time, I could have made far better at home, also the service wasn't as good as it has been previously. I've also recently been to Baroc (Golden Coach), excellent meal, good service. Only thing was we had to keep asking for drinks.
  13. I travelled all over Shetland for my work at one time. Even though I have lived here nearly all my life (on & off), I still didn't know my way around very much. But I got very good directions from clients, they seemed used to it! Shops, neighbours, post offices n ferry men, were usually excellent at helping out. Off topic, but did you mention your wife is working for NHS/SIC? I know SIC workers who have to use the ferries get a card, which they show on ferry journies and the cost is then charged back to the service.
