Place 72 – Day 508: Vancouver, BC – A 2020 Recap

We woke up and had a super lazy morning.

We had some crepes for breakfast and watched a bit of TV before getting ourselves ready.

It was raining, so we went up to Starbucks, got a coffee and came back home.

We did a lot of laundry and other cleaning and then sat down to watch some TV and play games.

We got hungry and so Kim made some chicken burgers we saw in the cook book.

They were delicious! We had then with curly fries and a ceasar salad.

We watched Death to 2020, which is on Netflix and it’s a satirical recap of 2020, which was funny!

We watched some more TV after this and then headed to bed.

Place 72 – Day 500: Vancouver, BC – Best Coffee In Vancouver?

We woke up at a really reasonable time today and had some toasties for breakfast. After breakfast, we had showers and then braved the rain to get ourselves some coffee!

We had heard and read that Revolver was the best coffee place in Vancouver, so we thought we should check it out.

We got pretty wet from the rain on the way there and back, but we were excited for our coffee!

Unfortunately, it wasn’t all that impressive. By no means was the coffee bad, but we weren’t really blown away! But we are glad we got to try it and we may think about trying some different coffee from there in the future.

When we got home, we played some Minecraft and then some VR!

we played quite a bit of VR, including some Mini Golf and the other game we had been playing recently.

We then watched some more TV and followed that up with eating our remaining leftovers from our Chinese food order yesterday.

We watched Big Fat Quiz 2020 whilst we ate which was funny, then finished the night off with some more Minecraft and TV/YouTube.

Place 72 – Day 499: Vancouver, BC – New Year’s Day VR

We woke up at a decent time today and had some cinnamon buns for breakfast.

Once we got ready, we braved the rain to get a coffee. We planned to try somewhere we haven’t been yet, but it was closed so we just went to Starbucks instead.

We went back and home watched a bit of TV and then we played VR for a while!

We got a couple of new games and one of them was really good (called Pistol Whip) and we played that until we got hungry.

We ordered some dinner, but unfortunately the place was closed so they cancelled our order.

Eventually, we found a nice looking Chinese place which we ordered from and it arrived quickly!

Unfortunately, they forgot one thing and replaced another, but it was all pretty alright.

We watched some YouTube whilst we ate and then played some Minecraft.

We were really glad we got to play some VR again. We don’t do it often enough but it was so fun!

Place 72 – Day 497: Vancouver, BC – Rainfall Warning

Today we planned to be up at a decent time, but we didn’t sleep too great so we slept in a little.

We woke up and had some breakfast and watched a bit of TV.

We eventually went out and got a coffee from somewhere we have not been before and it was actually quite nice.

There was a rainfall warning in Vancouver today, so it just rained the entire day, meaning we couldn’t really do anything.

Due to this, we just watched TV and played games.

We had egg fried rice for dinner and we’re still putting off going to the supermarket because we really can’t be bothered!

Place 72 – Day 496: Vancouver, BC – A Bank Meeting

We woke up at a decent time today, but we did sleep in today, especially compared to yesterday.

We had some toasties for breakfast and watched some TV.

After showering and getting ready, we remembered that we had a bank appointment to go to, so we went and did that. We were at the bank for about an hour or so, but in that time we got some things done which we need both for our PR application but also for some other things that we had needed for a while and just never got around to doing.

We got back home and had some pizza and a coffee and played some games.

After that, we made sausages, potato gratin, peas, carrots and gravy.

We ate that and went back to playing some Minecraft but then watched some TV.

There’s been rainfall warnings today, so the weather isn’t likely to get any better, so it’s unlikely we’ll be doing anything exciting (not that we can anyway!).

Place 72 – Day 495: Vancouver, BC – On Call & Raccoons!

Curtis’ Day

We both have the week off, but Curtis woke up at 08:00 to be available on call in case anything broke at work, as some people are still working this week.

Curtis only had 1 thing to do for work during the day, so it was mostly a gaming and relaxing day, but a little bit of admin, too.

Kim’s Day

Kim went out for a walk at 11:00 with someone from work.

Kim saw a family of raccoons too whilst she was out on her walk, which was a welcome addition to the day!

Afternoon/Evening

When Kim got home, we had some camembert and chicken paninis and then went out for a coffee and walk.

We got back and played some Minecraft, then took out the bins.

We then had some frozen pizza and watched some TV followed by some more Minecraft, of course!

Place 72 – Day 494: Vancouver, BC – Addicted To Minecraft

We woke up at a slightly better time today and had some crepes with strawberries and chocolate for breakfast.

We watched a bit of TV then showered and got ourselves ready for the day.

We planned to go for a walk, but the weather wouldn’t let us up, so instead we stayed inside and played far too much Minecraft. We’re pretty sure we’re a little addicted!

We had more leftovers for dinner and watched a film called Ingrid Goes West which we thought was alright.

We played more Minecraft in the evening and Kim had a bath and relaxed.

Curtis had to be on call for work tomorrow, but other than that, we have no plans.

Place 72 – Day 492: Vancouver, BC – Christmas Day 2020 🎄

We spent most of the day speaking with our families!

We spoke with Curtis’ family at 10:00, then we had some breakfast afterwards. We had croissants with strawberries.

Once we were done with breakfast and exchanging our gifts, we spoke with Kim’s family including her great auntie Linda, which was really nice, too!

After that, we got engrossed in playing Minecraft and then eventually peeled ourselves away to have dinner.

We had the usual for Christmas dinner, as you’d expect, but vegetables only!

After dinner, we watched Last Christmas and then just chilled out for the rest of the day.
