Place 72 – Day 115: Vancouver, BC – Oh, Smashing!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis’ day started off with the wrong breakfast! Unfortunately, he had forgotten to get yoghurt at the supermarket yesterday, so he had to just have toast this morning, which didn’t really fill him up.

Once he got to work, Curtis was able to get the day started, most importantly with a coffee.

The day went really well. Curtis did a few tickets before lunch, most of which took a bit of time so it was a little more interesting. He also did some training on some network things from one of his managers, so that was interesting and useful.

After lunch, Curtis was able to get on with some other tickets and with some laptop setups he needed to get done.

Curtis left the office and walked home, whilst Kim stayed late.

Kim’s Day

When Kim arrived she started her day by finalising the accommodation for someone who is interviewing in the Ontario office.

Kim had agreed to join the end of another teams weekly catch up to field any questions they may have about the Wiki project. So she went and joined and had a quick 15 minute chat before being kicked out of the meeting room. She then went back to her desk to catch up on a few emails.

Kim then went into the social team meeting where they caught up and discussed the plans for the upcoming month. It went well and they agreed on running a few things here and there so that people weren’t bombarded with too much going on!

After this meeting Kim decided to start emptying the cupboard behind her as there is a box full of stuff that she has not once used since she started. Kim went though everything, boxed things up in categories for things she doesn’t often use and moved things she uses even less to other areas in the office. This allowed Kim to get rid of loads of things that are simply not used or needed anymore, free up space which makes the whole area neater and easier to use!

One of the doors on the drinks fridge stopped working so Kim chased the company to see when they would be coming out.

A colleague of Kims asked her to collect some company swag to send out so the teo of them worked together into boxing the gifts up and making them look pretty. After Kim went to FedEx to get them sent out and it was meant to be a 15 minute job but ended up taking about 30 minutes because there were extra forms!

Kim then headed back to the office, finished up the last couple of emails and then headed home.

Oh, Smashing!

When Curtis got back home he emptied the recycling, put away the dishes and then walked up to the supermarket. He made sure to get some yoghurt as well as some hot dogs, cheese and buns for dinner.

Kim really felt like having hot dogs and that felt like a terrific idea to Curtis!

Once Kim eventually got home, we had our hotdogs, as well as mac and cheese.

After dinner, whilst we were watching some YouTube videos, Curtis must have gotten a little excited over the delicious spicy ginger beer we were drinking as he proceeded to drop the glass onto the table, which, as you’d imagine, had consequences.

The glass smashed in half, but didn’t really shatter which is great. We cleared this up (and the remainder of Curtis’ delicious ginger beer!) And then watched the other half of the Bake Off we didn’t watch last night.

We finished the evening with another episode of Peaky Blinders.


This Time Last Year!
