Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a busy start to the day as there were some issues with Microsoft Outlook.

Curtis had to find out what was happening from the users and eventually from Microsoft.

Curtis dealt with this and then had a team meeting.

Once that meeting was done, he was looking at Google accounts throughout the company and removing any that could be removed as well as organising the grouping and ensuring that everything was correct there.

He did this throughout most of the day.

Curtis had a project meeting in the afternoon which was very positive.

Kim’s Day

Kim worked from home for some of the morning and started the day by hosting the mid week catch up before joining this months health and safety committee meeting. Both meetings went really well!

Once Kim was in the office she started working on communications that will go out over rhe coming weeks. She would take breaks when she couldn’t figure out what else was needed by tearing apart the few remaining notebooks to recycle and shred. Kim also had a quick call with a colleague to discuss one of the communications, just to get a second opinion.

In the mid afternoon Kim and two friends went out to get a vietnamese coffee! It was so lovely to get out in the sun and have a delicious coffee!

When she got back Kim took some time out from communications to update the maps on the Wiki. Then she went back to continue writing.

Kim finished the day by having a great big catch up with a friend that went well into the evening. It was so lovely to sit down and just chat!

Yet Another Walk

Kim got home fairly late and we had the same dinner as yesterday.

We watched a little TV and then went out for a nice evening walk again, and chatted about each of our days.

We got back home and played some virtual mini golf and then Kim watched some of the office and Curtis played some games.

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a very irritating day today.

He had the zoom webinar and then after that he spent most of the morning doing computer checkups. Most of this should be able to be done without even contacting the users, but for some reason Curtis’ laptop was being a pain, so it meant he had to contact each user and either get them to do some things or have a Zoom call with them and do it for them.

After lunch, Curtis had a couple of tickets to do and then had a long Zoom call with someone to try and get an issue fixed, but unfortunately he wasn’t able to get anywhere with it, other than ruling out possible fixes, so it’s back to the drawing board.

Kim’s Day

Kim took the mid week catch up call from home and today it was just her and one other person, but someone she had not met before! So it was great to meet them and say hello.

Once she was in the office Kim started on peeling the signs off the bin doors and removing all the loose tape too. She then organised the new bins and put the signs above them.

Kim had a call from a vendor who she is waiting on a response from to tell her that they haven’t done anything but are going to. Which seemed like a total waste of time, especially given that they had been calling multiple times a day just to give that message.

In the early afternoon Kim had a jackbox game planned, but only one person joined so they had a quick chat. For the afternoon Kim continued to reorganise the office. She emptied more drawers, removed some tables and tagged desks that IT need to look at tomorrow. It was a long but good and successful day.

Towards the end of the afternoon Kim wrote up a to do list for herself and IT for tomorrow.

A Relaxing Bath

Once Kim got home, Kim decided to head to the pharmacy down the road to get some drain unblocker for our bath as it has been getting more and more blocked.

Once she got that and came back, she had a nice long relaxing bath which was just what she needed.

We then made a veggie stir fry for dinner, but we ended up not having enough noodles for 2 people, so we had sweet & sour chicken with rice and vegetables and Curtis will have the stir fry for lunch tomorrow.

We watched some TV and then went to bed. Nice, simple & relaxing evening.
