place 72 – Day 449: Vancouver, BC – New Job, Many Meetings!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a very informative company wide meeting in the morning and then after that he worked on the issue from yesterday which was a lot of waiting for things to download but it did fix the issue, which was excellent!

Curtis then did tickets up to lunch time and after lunching he did a lot of training which involved reading and doing some practice tests.

Kim’s Day

Kim had a busy day today, there were a lot of meetings and a lot to get done! She started her day by getting a few final things written up to present to her colleague and manager in a meeting during the morning.

In the team meeting Kim went over a few events coming up over the next few weeks and got some direction and clarification for those. They also went over a few other projects that are going on.

After the meeting Kim hosted a social lunch call where she had a lovely chat with someone. It was one of the first non work calls she had been on, so it was nice to just talk and get to know them.

After lunch Kim joined a HR meeting. She didn’t participate too much, but she did take notes of things that need to be done and let the people on the call know of the few changes coming up over the next few weeks and the new processes that will be in place. After this Kim joined another call that was discussing the vendor relationship with the company. Again, kim did a lot of listening and took some notes for herself during this meeting.

Kims colleague asked for a quick chat to go over a few things coming up so they had a quick call before they both joined an interview. Kim took notes during the interview and her colleague and another person asked most of the questions, but its great for Kim to be a fly on the wall to take notes, learn and know what to expect when she starts interviewing.

Kim had a short break before a quick call with a vendor to go over setting up the account.

For the afternoon and into the evening Kim worked on the invite, sign up sheet, budget and timeline for the winter event coming up. She sent that over to her manager to ensure she is happy with the costs and plan for the day.

Evening

We had sausages and mash for dinner with peas and gravy!

That was pretty much our whole evening.

We didn’t really do anything else! We watched some TV and played some games as usual.


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 188: Vancouver, BC – All New Clothes

Richmond Shopping

We drove out to Richmond to go and do some shopping.

Kim still has some money left for her work items, so we went to get some of that sorted.

We got a coffee to start with, and then walked around a few shops.

We got to American Eagle, which we have both got clothes from before and bought a lot!

Curtis got a whole load of new T-Shirts and Kim got some new tops and jumpers.

We left there and checked a couple of other shops, but had more than enough already.

We drove to Homesense down the road so we could find a couple of trays we were looking for, but we didn’t!

We left there and drove back home.

Sausage & Mash

We had sausage and mash for dinner, which Kim made, with terrific Yorkshire puddings!

We played a bit of Red Dead Redemption 2 and then we watched a film, Shaft, before heading to bed.
