Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work, grabbed some coffee and an orange juice and went through his many emails (mostly spam) from the weekend.

He then swapped someone over to their new laptop and stored away the old one for safe keeping.

Curtis had a few new tickets come in and people reply to some from last week, so he managed to keep perfectly busy.

At 13:00, instead of lunch Curtis had a training session for the new HR system, which he learned for about 45 minutes, after which he had lunch.

After lunch, Curtis didn’t have too much going on, so he reset a couple of laptops and set them up ready to be reused.

Curtis finished these and then was asked to think about changing the procurement process and possibly automate a lot of it also, so Curtis looked into that for the rest of the afternoon.

Kim’s Day

When Kim got in to work, she went through her emails and got stuck in for the day. Kim then went and sat with the people from HR as this week she will be learning some of their processes so as to be able to lend a hand as and when needed.

Just as Kim got comfortable, something came up that she needed reception’s help with, so she went back over and sat there for an hour or so. Kim was going to head back and then the weekly fruit arrived so she helped put it all away before heading back to HR.

Kim then went into a meeting about a specific application that is used and really got some good knowledge on how to use it and what its used for.

Then was lunch! Kim had to run a few errands over lunch so she set off on her little adventures and then ate her sandwich in the kitchen area when she got back. It was nice to get out of the office for a bit in the middle of the day.

When Kim got back off of lunch she was doing some self teaching about the processes and applications used in her new role.

Kim then headed into another meeting and learned more about this mornings application. This was more in depth than before and Kim was able to process some paperwork too.

Kim spent the last few hours learning about the company and doing some research into the company’s background. 10 minutes before she was due to leave the laptop ran out of juice and died!

Kim got a cool photo when she left the office as the weather was beautiful.

Costco Again

We visited Costco on the way home. Kim got her actual membership card and then we looked at getting a few things but they weren’t actually that cheap, so we walked home.

Forgotten Purse

Once we home, Kim went back out to get some baking ingredients. Once Kim got to the shop, she realised she forgot her purse so Curtis had to take that up to her.

We got what we needed to get from the shop and came home.

Bolognese Day 2

We had bolognese with a side salad again today, because we had some left over.

Brookies

After dinner, we watched some TV, including Lucifer & Chernobyl and then Kim made brookies (brownie cookies). Kim is taking them to work tomorrow.
