Vancouver, BC

Place 72 – Day 183: Vancouver, BC – Hot Chocolate Station & A Big Win!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work and had his daily meeting.

Post-meeting, Curtis did a lot of ticket work, mostly on new tickets that were arriving after the long weekend.

At 11:30 he had a demo of some software with his team, which they got a small Q&A for too.

After that, Curtis jumped right into showing his team what to do with some software, with relation to a project.

Curtis’ afternoon involved helping someone with some OneDrive issues via a screen share and then he used the quiet afternoon to wipe and setup two old laptops.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day by calling a hotel who they are missing a receipt from.

It took 4 calls and a lengthy conversation to track down the transaction in question and then the hotel never even emailed it across meaning Kim has to do it all again tomorrow!

Just as Kim was about to walk into her weekly catch up with her teammate where they had a good catch up on everything winter parties, first aid and all the other other small things that get pushed to one side.

Kim then spent the rest of the morning sorting through RSVPs for one of the other offices and reminding other offices to respond too.

Just before lunch Kim made a hot chocolate station as the cream was due to go past its sell by date at the end of the day. So she steamed up some cream and put out cinnamon, hot chocolate powder and vanilla flavour for people to help themselves!

Kim then sat down to a quick lunch before heading into the monthly health and safety meeting.

In this meeting they watched some instructional videos on their specific AED that they have. They also handed out action items for everyone to do. Its one thing Kim is trying to work on, hand work out and not hold it all!

Kim then went through the responses from the Vancouver winter party and drew up a spreadsheet for this office too.

Big Win!

Curtis had a hockey game at a really good time of 20:30.

They got there and it was Curtis’ team’s first time wearing their dark jerseys, which look amazing!

The game went really well, especially for Curtis. He got two assists, one was a really lovely saucer pass and the other was after whacking away at the puck and a teammate came in and finished it.

Curtis also got a boarding penalty, which he didn’t mean to do!

His team won 4-1, again the leading team and it was a really great feeling game!

We got back home, cleaned a few things we neglected earlier today, made some lunch for tomorrow and that was that, bed time. Which we are looking forward to as we are very tired after a lack of sleep last night!


This Time Last Year!
