Place 72 – Day 62: Vancouver, BC – Free Fancy Lunch & 20,000 Views!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis spent his morning catching up on tickets from yesterday, as well as setting up a laptop for someone to replace their old one.

A lot of new tickets came in throughout the day in general, so Curtis was very busy!

Curtis learned a few things today, as well as spent a while trying to fix a specific problem.

For lunch, Curtis went to the food truck directly outside his office building and got a buritto bowl.

The afternoon wasn’t much less busy and Curtis was juggling multiple things at once.

Some things needed testing around 16:50 for a change that was happening in the evening, so Curtis helped with that and then left for the day.

Kim’s Day

Kim spent most of her day on just a few things. When Kim got in she started her day by going through her template emails and adjusting them slightly.

Then Kim moved on to updating her contact and info list of vendors she has frequently used. It’s much easier to have everything saved in one place with active links rate than checking multiple areas!

Kim then spent some time trying to get a quote that she requested yesterday. Having received no answer from one of the companies Kim proceeded to place an order with a different company.

Kim then headed out with a colleague to a local hotel to join their sales rep for lunch. It was a great way to properly and informally catch up. It was also a great excuse to sample a few dishes from their sharing menu. They started with a lovely beetroot and cheese dish, it was so beautiful and tasted phenomenal. Then the show started!

The whole table was covered in plates! There was, scallops, squid, tuna mac and cheese, brocollini, korean chicken, a quinoa salad and a lovely egg plant dish. The girls tucked in and Kim even tried a bit of a scallop. It wasn’t lovely but it wasn’t the worst food she has ever eaten! After trying all that food, and even boxing up a little to take home, they then brought out a small dessert platter! The platter had 3 little blueberry tarts, orange cheesecake and a little chocolate orange truffle. Just the right amount after a massive feast!

After lunch had flown by, Kim’s colleague had to head back to the office while Kim got a tour of one of the rooms, a few of the meeting rooms, the ballroom and the amenities room. It was so lovely to see the hotel and be able to make solid recommendations to any visitors we may have while Kim is here in Vancouver.

When Kim rolled herself back to work she found a few items on her desk that needed to be sent out. She popped them all in envelopes and was ready to use the post stampy machine thing to weigh and out the postage on the envelopes. However, when she went to do it, the machine had an error. After about 5 attempts of trying to call and receiving a dead line and one answer and being hung up on, Kim eventually spoke to someone to trouble shoot the issue and walk her through putting the machine through it’s update. After that long call Kim was able to put the postage on the items and have them ready to be sent out.

Kim then focused her attention to completing the booking for the bus hire for the upcoming summer party.

After she made progress with the paperwork for the bus company Kim then looked into and contacted a company about a cake that needs to be ordered. She emailed the company and then left to go home! It was a productive and filling day!

20,000 Views!

Today, we hit 20,000 blog views! Thank you all so much, especially if you read the blog every day!

When we got home, we went right out for a walk. The weather was perfect for a stroll, so we walked and discussed our days some more.

Once we arrived back at our apartment, Kim had a tuna sandwich and Curtis had some toast as we both had big lunches so we didn’t need any proper dinner.

We sat and started the new series of Lucifer and then had a bit of an earlier night, in comparison to recent evenings.


This Time Last Year!
