Place 72 – Day 157: Vancouver, BC – New Blinds, Towel Rack & Pie!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had training right when he got to work. Coffee was the priority as it was a cold morning today!

Curtis’ training went well, though he wasn’t too sure if it will be beneficial to his team, but we shall see.

Curtis got his admin done after this and the rest of the day was a little manic.

Curtis got some further questions and issues regarding his project, which he had to work on.

There were a few people that asked for some help so he helped them and did some standard tickets, as well as had some conversations with colleagues around policies and procedures.

Once Curtis got home from work, the handyman was still in our apartment doing a few things.

Kim’s Day

Kim’s day today had no meetings at all and she spent a fair amount of it on incoming calls and doing little ad hoc tasks.

The first thing Kim sorted was a pizza order for today and she also placed the regular weekly pizza order for tomorrow at the same time. After this Kim then laminated some new signs for the kitchen and everyone’s first aid attendant cards – better late than never!

While Kim was putting the signs up someone asked if she was coming to a meeting and it turns out Kim had completely lost track of time and was due to be in a meeting shortly so she packed away and grabbed her laptop and went into the meeting.

The social meeting was discussing much of the same that we had for the past few weeks, Diwali and Halloween. We have also decided to do pie and ice cream this Friday for Canadian Thanksgiving!

After the meeting Kim finished putting up the newly laminated signs. When the pizza arrived it was the wrong order, they had sent tomorrows order today, which was not ideal, so Kim arranged for the correct pizzas to be delivered and received a credit on the account and 4 random free pizzas!

To start the afternoon Kim hung up a first aid kit in the kitchen, it seems like the place most injuries would occur. Someone was very surprised to see Kim screwing in a nail and even offered to help and didn’t believe Kim when she said that she had done this kind of thing many times before!

The rest of the afternoon was spent saving invoices answering sales calls!

New Blinds & Towel Rack

The handyman finished off a few things in our apartment and we have some improvements!

We now have a nicer set of (horizontal) blinds in the living room as well as a towel rack in the bathroom as the other one we had fell off the wall.

The bedroom blinds are up, but they have gaps around the side, so the handyman will be popping back to screw some wood into that area.

Kim’s Training

Kims first lesson today was hard. She did some tricky moves but they could be of great use in Kim’s upcoming routine, so that was great!

After this Kim walked home and spent 10 minutes there before heading to her second lesson.

This is a great lesson where they learned a step up from a move Kim loves. This will not make it into the routine but it was a pretty move. There was also a simple and effective looking spin that requires a lot of energy, for it to work you have to be completely engaged from your shoulders to toes, its beautiful but tricky.

Kim then asked if the lesson after had any spaces and a few people had dropped out so Kim hung around and joined in on that class too. The routine for this class was very spin orientated and Kim was totally unable to get the trick as she does not have enough flexibility, she did enjoy the class though!

Curtis put the pie top on the filling whilst Kim was out and cooked it, but it seemed to collapse a little but still looked (and tasted) delicious.

Kim got back and we watched The Appentice and then went to sleep!


This Time Last Year!
