Place 72 – Day 175: Vancouver, BC – Project Officially Finished!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work pretty early, and it was good that he did!

The project was now ‘done’, but there were still a lot of questions around it, how to do things, what about this etc.

Curtis spent most of his day doing things around that, but luckily, it seems to be calming down!

Curtis’ team had an important meeting in the afternoon to discuss what projects they will be taking on for the next two weeks.

That means more project work for Curtis, but it’s good because there is a follow on project from the one Curtis just did, so it would be good if he did that one anyway.

The afternoon was spent doing some research, setting up a laptop and doing some more ticket work.

Curtis left work and walked home.

Kim’s Day

Today there was breakfast in the office! Kim got in and it was all set up as a couple of her teammates came in to meet the delivery driver.
Kim grabbed a plate and had a little breakfast.

After this Kim started to clear down the pastry tray and collect all the utensils.

The reason there was a breakfast is for the company wide meeting that was occurring in the building. Everyone went upstairs to the roof for the meeting.

After this Kim went and finished clearing away the breakfast stuff and then helped setting up the drinks for the meeting that was going on on the rooftop. To set the drinks up Kim had the great idea to put a mini fridge on a wheely thing to make it a mobile mini fridge, meaning the drinks don’t ever get cold!

She then spent a bit of timing clearing the meeting room behind her desk and the whole front desk area in general. It now looks like a welcoming area rather than an absolute mess!

Kim then met a colleague downstairs to collect some pumpkins.

When she got back up she saw a delivery driver unloading lunch bags into the kitchen so Kim said he was meant to be delivering to the rooftop but he didn’t believe her until the lady who ordered it came down and said it as well.

Kim then started reconciling the last and final credit card. She did this until she went into a meeting with her manager.

They had a good catch up and went over a few things like the Job Description and how it aligns with what she is doing now. It was a good meeting.

Kim then decided to treat herself to a 3pm lunch!

After she took a little break she then continued to reconcile the credit card before realising that she is simply doing a duplicate of what the accounts team have already done, so she had a chat with the lady in accounts and they both laughed at how silly it was and that neither of them noticed!

Kim then spent some time setting up for the following day by making notes for herself and attempting to see what needed to be done.

Kim then potted around with other things while she waited for the upstairs.meeting to finish so she could restock the drinks and allow them to cool overnight. She also binned and saved food from the previous evenings event that had been left out since lunch. The whole kitchen smelt like sweaty cheese! Not nice!

Kim went to train this evening and it wasn’t great.

She was able to try the first combo but her full run through went terribly!

Packing Again & Bake Off Final!

We have a week off starting Thursday, so we need to get packed so we can fly out tomorrow night.

We got some stuff packed, either side of Kim returning from work and returning from training.

We got almost everything ready to go and then watched the final of the Great British Bake Off.


This Time Last Year!
