Place 49 – Day 248: Auckland – Family!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis had plans to go to two clients this morning, so he did just that.

Curtis had a few things to do before heading out and just before leaving a large influx of emails came in.

Curtis left and popped to the ice hockey shop to see of they could repair his hockey skates, but there was nothing they could do, which was unfortunate!

Curtis left after a quick visit to the shop and went to the first client. Not too much was needed here, but it was good for Curtis to touch base and check all was good. He then left and went to the other client which was a 30 minute drive.

Curtis spent about an hour on site and helped a couple of people and then got back to the office and had lunch. During lunch, Curtis looked online to see what the damage would be for a new pair of skates!

Luckily, someone that coaches Curtis’ team had a spare pair of used, high-end skates which were his size! Curtis organised to meet him in the evening to try them on to ensure they fit.

Curtis left work a bit early to contend with the traffic due to a major accident. Curtis got home around the time he normally would after leaving an hour early!

Both of us;

Kim got home and we had some dinner. We had leftover sausage and mash, which was delicious.

Kim then went for dessert with Tabitha at the chocolate cafe.

Kim met with Tabitha as Tabitha is going away for a few weeks and she is sad to not see her for a bit.

Once Kim got back, we went to the ice rink in Avondale to test out the skates. The seemed to fit perfectly and Curtis was even able to test them on the ice briefly!

We left there and headed for the airport.

We got a couple of drinks from the supermarket and then waited at the airport for Curtis’ family to arrive!

We surprised them at the airport and drove Max & Evie (Curtis’ siblings) to the airport whilst Lisa & Gareth took the free bus.

We met them back at the hotel and helped them with their bags and had a quick chat before leaving them to sleep and driving home ourselves.

It will be so fun to spend time with them and then we are both of from Friday, too for some fun activities!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
