Place 72 – Day 913: Vancouver, BC – Forgot To Book!

Curtis’ Day

We were both up at 06:00 this morning. Kim was to do work, but Curtis got up to watch Great Britain’s next game against Denmark.

The game went to overtime and whilst GB lost, it was a terrific game.

Curtis then started work and was meant to have a Norwegian lesson about an hour in, but then realised he hasn’t actually remembered to book it! He’s booked in for next week, but that’s a little annoying. On the plus side, he had some more time to get things done.

He got tickets done throughout the day and also reviewed a policy as part of a project.

Curtis had his weekly team meeting before lunch and then got more tickets completed.

Once he was done with work, Curtis watched the Toronto Maple Leafs edge that little bit closer to the 2nd round of the playoffs with another win!

Kim’s Day

Kim had a long but super productive day! She started by checking the laptops she sorted over the weekend and getting them sent out. She then did some research and got some other admin done before having a quick check in with a new starter. She then gave her update in th company meeting.

After the big meeting Kim had a call with an exec to have a chat about a hopeful new hire. Then Kim had some time for some collaborative work before giving an update to the finance team.

After lunch Kim joined a recruitment meeting and then continue some collaborative work with her teammate. She had an interview and interview review after that.

For the rest of the day Kim had one long meeting that she kept jumping out of to attend other meetings. The long meeting was to discuss a role and the applicants in the hiring process. She left the meeting to do a review of another interview and then she left again to go over the onboarding plan for two new starters for next week.

Evening

We had leftover Mac and cheese for dinner and chilled out for the evening. We were both very tired from waking up early this morning.

We did get out for a walk around 10pm, which was really nice and needed!

Place 72 – Day 897: Vancouver, BC – Switching Up Our Walk

We woke up fairly late, accidentally, and then had some french toast for breakfast.

Once we were done with breakfast, we watched the Formula 1 race and then got ourselves ready to go out.

We went out for a walk, as usual, but we walked a bit of a different way once we got to the park.

We walked around a lake that is in the park, which was a little quieter, greener and had some herons in the lake that we watched for a bit.

We walked back home and were pretty hungry, so made some dinner when we got back. We had vegetables, egg and chicken on top of rice, which was really nice.

We went out to do the weekly shop, but we also went to Canadian Tire to pickup some new cutlery.

We did our shop and headed back to the car, where there was a bit of an altercation happening. Nothing physical, but we waited with one of the people until the police arrived. That was a bit of excitement for the evening but luckily everyone was ok.

We headed back home and watched a bit of TV, then we did a little bit of reading in Norwegian. Curtis bought Kim a book for her birthday and she took a look at it today and enjoyed reading in Norwegian!

Kim then had a bath whilst Curtis played some games, then we watched some TV for the remainder of the evening.

Place 72 – Day 882: Vancouver, BC – Lazy Rainy Saturday

We woke up much later then planned, but it was very nice to get some sleep.

We had some scrambled egg on toast for breakfast and watched a bit of TV.

We then got ourselves showered and fresh for the day. As it was rainy and gross today, we planned to just sit inside and relax. We briefly went out to get a coffee and then came back home.

Curtis watched hockey whilst Kim did some reading. Kim got very into the book she was reading and read it for hours!

Once that was done, we had leftovers for dinner and then watched some TV, followed by a movie called Miss Bala.

Place 72 – Day 365: Vancouver, BC – Sitting In The Sun

Usual Beach Walk

We got up and had some french toast for breakfast.

We watched a bit of YouTube and relaxed and then we got ready for the day.

We went out for a walk in the blistering heat! The weather was about 31°C today and felt like 33°C, so certainly warm!

We walked down to the beach, stopping for a coffee along the way, of course.

We got to near the beach and we sat on the grass in the shade, just drinking our coffee and people watching.

We walked on the beach for a bit and dipped our feet in the water, but eventually we got a bit too warm to walk around in the heat, so we walked back home.

Sitting In The Sun

Once we got home, we relaxed for a bit and then Kim went out to the park near our apartment to sit down in the sun, read a book and listen to some podcasts!

Kim got back, incredibly warm, and then we had some dinner. We had coconut and lime chicken with rice and it was really good!

Evening

We watched a few episodes of TV and then Kim did a facemask for the evening.

We watched some more TV and played some games for the rest of our Sunday evening.
