Place 72 – Day 432: Vancouver, BC – Full Bathroom Clean

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a meeting at 10:30, so did a bit of work before that.

The meeting was good and after that he did some more tickets.

In the afternoon, Curtis setup accounts for a new starter and did some other tickets, too.

Kim’s Day

Kim spent most of the day doing a deep clean of the bathroom. We noticed it needed to be cleaned, so Kim said she wanted to do it during the day whilst Curtis is working.

This took a couple of hours and then Kim did some more research for the permanent residency we need to get and we now know a little more about what is required and we’ve sent off some emails we need to send to get some information and items.

Risotto

Kim wanted to make some risotto, so she had to go and get some wine as well as some other things for the risotto, such as parmesan cheese.

Kim made the risotto and we watched some TV whilst we ate.

We then watched a Netflix show about designing homes, which is something we love to watch!

Kim had to do her background check for her new job so she did that and we chilled out after that.

Place 72 – Day 419: Vancouver, BC – Finding New Clothes

Curtis’ Day

Curtis started the day with an orientation. He chatted with a new hire and ensured they could do everything they needed to and answered any of their questions.

Not long after that, Curtis had his long weekly team meeting and then did some tickets before lunch.

After lunch, Curtis got his personal learning plan written up and sent off to the required people and then he did a few more tickets as well as some admin.

Kim’s Day

After a relaxing morning Kim went to apply to two jobs, but ended up sending applications in for about 7 roles. So thats exciting!

In preparation for interviews Kim thought it would be a good idea to have some interview clothes ready so she popped to a few places but didn’t find anything. She is also trying to buy less stuff in general so she went to a thrift shop, but unfortunately there wasn’t anything in her size that Kim could wear to an interview. When she got home Kim did find some shoes that would work, so she might get those!

Evening

We had leftovers from last night’s roast for dinner and it was as delicious as it was yesterday.

We watched a bit of TV and then Curtis drove off to hockey at around 21:30.

As the game is late, we will let you know the score tomorrow!

In the evening Kim decided on swapping out her summer to winter clothes. She collected the winter stuff from the storage locker in the car park and sorted through all of her clothes. She has now found a few more items to donate, so thats good!

Once Curtis gets back home it will be pretty late, so it will be right to bed after a shower.

Place 72 – Day 405: Vancouver, BC – Back To Evening Walks

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got up and was sure to get a coffee as soon as possible, as he had to go to the office.

Curtis had his coffee and did some tickets, then he walked down to the office.

Once he got there, Curtis got the things he needed out of the storage and got to work setting up a laptop and the accounts for a new starter on Monday.

This took pretty much the entire first half of the day, and he got that all packaged up and booked a courier to take that tomorrow.

Curtis left the office and walked back home.

After he got home, Curtis had some lunch and then got back to work.

Curtis had some work to do in the afternoon and it went pretty quick.

Kim’s Day

Kim got ready for the day and then did a little housework and then started looking for jobs again.

Kim applied to a couple of jobs that she really liked the look of before lunch and then after lunch Kim applied to a lot more which is very promising!

Evening Walk

When Curtis finished work and Kim finished applying for jobs, we headed out to go for a bit of a walk!

We walked down to the seawall and walked for a while, but swung around to get to the store to get a carrot and some spring onions for dinner.

We were at the store for a while as it was very busy, but once we got home, Kim made some chicken egg fried rice.

We watched some TV for the evening and also we looked into a bit of immigration stuff for next year (exciting!).
