Kim got up early(ish) to head out to pole training.
She enjoyed the session, but it was a little early!
She headed back and when she got back, we planned to go out for breakfast.
Out For Breakfast…Or Not!
We walked up to a place we had been before, called Yolk, but when we got there, it was a 1 hour wait, so we changed our mind and walked home, with a stop at Starbucks so Curtis could try a gingerbread latte (which he liked!) And at the supermarket.
We got home and made some scrambled eggs with ham and cheese and some toast.
Leafs & Winners Shopping
Curtis watched the leafs game and whilst doing this, Kim went up to Winners to find a few things she needed for our kitchen and apartment.
Curtis had another hockey game today, at 20:30!
We left at 19:15 to get there at a good time.
Curtis’ hockey game was awful and they lost 4-0!
We were invited to a housewarming party out in New Westminster, but couldn’t go for 19:00 as we had Curtis’ hockey game, so we went after!
We were there from 22:00 something and had a good time. This was for someone that Kim met through pole dancing. It was a nice house, too!
We were up to get checked out and have some breakfast.
We checked out via mobile and queued up to get our bags in storage.
Once we got our bags checked, we headed over to McDonald’s for a quick easy breakfast and a sit down.
Once we finished our food, we went to the check in counter to ask a few questions we had and by the time that was done, we wanted to go and grab a taco from the place we had visited list time in Vegas.
We took Tom to the Mexican place and each had a carnitas taco, which is delicious pork and vegetables, which was perfect to tide us over.
That took us to the perfect time to go and grab our bags and head off.
We got them and jumped in a Lyft up to a house where we were pickup up a campervan.
The couple we got the camper from were a lovely older French couple that rent out a few campervans.
We had a tour of it, they told us how to use different things and that was pretty much that.
It’s a perfect size for the 3 of us, too.
We got in it and hit the road, heading to rent a bike from Tom.
We got to a bike rental place but it seemed that there isn’t actually a shop there. We called them and they said that there is no shop and they only deliver to hotels, so we canned that idea.
We found another place that was en route, so we stopped off there instead.
Tom got a bike for a good price which was nice and easy and we went to grab coffees for the journey.
We set off and up to Utah Tom drove.We had an uneventful drive really, just drove through Nevada, Arizona and finally into Utah.
We stopped off at Walmart once we got into Hurricane, Utah and got a few supplies for our 3 day campervan stay.
We drove the rest of the way, figuring out where to go and then driving down into the gravel roads and finally out into the campsite.
We were greeted and showed our spot, where we setup and got ready to hunker down.
We got a bit of food in us, just some frozen pasta stuff we bought, and then relaxed for a bit before we went to sleep, as we have to be up relatively early tomorrow.
It’s actually quite warm at the moment inside our camper, so that’s a win!
We merry with Tom and headed out for breakfast around 09:30.
We were going to find somewhere to go but we saw McDonald’s and it was closer, so we went there as it was easy.
We left McDonald’s and continued about our day.
Walk Around The Strip & Rollercoaster
We started off by Kim going Kim the New York New York rollercoaster. She had wanted to go on it for a while and there was no queue, so she went on it. She really enjoyed it and there were some fun loops in there.
We walked around all of the strip, showing Tom the best spots that we remembered from when we were here before. We spent a lot of the day just walking around.
We stopped off for some lunch at In & Out burger to introduce Tom to it.
It was as delicious as always, and Tom seemed to enjoyed it too!
We walked back to the hotel to relax for a bit. We watched the Apprentice with Tom and then got ready to go out for the evening.
We went out in the evening and walked to Ceasar’s Palace to watch a show! We stopped at the Bellagio fountain to watch a fountain show and then went into the show.
We had VIP tickets to Absinthe, which was a very rude acrobatics/comedy show.
We had a terrific time in the tent and as VIPs, we got to go in through a secret entrance which was a green telephone box.
We absolutely loved the show! It was very rude but so funny and incredible acts, doing a lot of different things.
We went to Panda Express to get some food afterwards and then headed back to our rooms.
We said goodnight to Tom and then watched a bit of TV before sleeping.
We leave Vegas tomorrow to go somewhere we have been before, but should be a lot of fun!
Curtis’ day started off with the wrong breakfast! Unfortunately, he had forgotten to get yoghurt at the supermarket yesterday, so he had to just have toast this morning, which didn’t really fill him up.
Once he got to work, Curtis was able to get the day started, most importantly with a coffee.
The day went really well. Curtis did a few tickets before lunch, most of which took a bit of time so it was a little more interesting. He also did some training on some network things from one of his managers, so that was interesting and useful.
After lunch, Curtis was able to get on with some other tickets and with some laptop setups he needed to get done.
Curtis left the office and walked home, whilst Kim stayed late.
When Kim arrived she started her day by finalising the accommodation for someone who is interviewing in the Ontario office.
Kim had agreed to join the end of another teams weekly catch up to field any questions they may have about the Wiki project. So she went and joined and had a quick 15 minute chat before being kicked out of the meeting room. She then went back to her desk to catch up on a few emails.
Kim then went into the social team meeting where they caught up and discussed the plans for the upcoming month. It went well and they agreed on running a few things here and there so that people weren’t bombarded with too much going on!
After this meeting Kim decided to start emptying the cupboard behind her as there is a box full of stuff that she has not once used since she started. Kim went though everything, boxed things up in categories for things she doesn’t often use and moved things she uses even less to other areas in the office. This allowed Kim to get rid of loads of things that are simply not used or needed anymore, free up space which makes the whole area neater and easier to use!
One of the doors on the drinks fridge stopped working so Kim chased the company to see when they would be coming out.
A colleague of Kims asked her to collect some company swag to send out so the teo of them worked together into boxing the gifts up and making them look pretty. After Kim went to FedEx to get them sent out and it was meant to be a 15 minute job but ended up taking about 30 minutes because there were extra forms!
Kim then headed back to the office, finished up the last couple of emails and then headed home.
When Curtis got back home he emptied the recycling, put away the dishes and then walked up to the supermarket. He made sure to get some yoghurt as well as some hot dogs, cheese and buns for dinner.
Kim really felt like having hot dogs and that felt like a terrific idea to Curtis!
Once Kim eventually got home, we had our hotdogs, as well as mac and cheese.
After dinner, whilst we were watching some YouTube videos, Curtis must have gotten a little excited over the delicious spicy ginger beer we were drinking as he proceeded to drop the glass onto the table, which, as you’d imagine, had consequences.
The glass smashed in half, but didn’t really shatter which is great. We cleared this up (and the remainder of Curtis’ delicious ginger beer!) And then watched the other half of the Bake Off we didn’t watch last night.
We finished the evening with another episode of Peaky Blinders.
We were very full after breakfast and so we went for a walk downtown to burn it off.
We walked around a few shops to pass time and Kim also managed to buy some exercise gear she needed.
Kim and Linda went for a foot massage at 13:00. The original booked time was 13:30, but they couldn’t wait so changed it to 13:00.
Whilst they did this, Curtis went back to the apartment and relaxed.
Time To Go
Once we were all back in the same room, we didn’t have long before we had to say goodbye to Linda and walk down to catch the bus.
We said our goodbyes and wandered to the bus station.Once at the station, we waited for a little bit and then boarded. The bus was very busy and very hot!
Once we arrived at the ferry port, everyone was way too hot so temporarily disembarked the bus to get some fresh air.
There was a small delay on the boat bring offloaded as the police were waiting for a car to speak to the driver, so we had to wait for that to be dealt with before we could board.
We got on the boat and sat charging our phones. We were able fully charge our phones, which was a result!
It was incredibly loud and busy on the boat, but it went quite fast.We loaded back onto the bus and headed towards home.We got back home and it was nice to be back, but we already miss spending time with Linda!
We stopped in at the supermarket for a bit to do a small weekly shop and to get some food for dinner.
We ate our dinner and caught up on some TV and YouTube videos before we went to bed, ready for work tomorrow.
