Place 72 – Day 498: Vancouver, BC – New Year’s Eve 2020

We tried to wake up at a good time, but accidentally fell back asleep and woke up at 12:00!

We had some breakfast and then got ready, but once we got ready, the weather had turned and there was a lot of rain, so we didn’t go for a walk.

Kim did a little bit of work that she had to do and we also took a photo of Kim for our PR application.

We played some games and then had some cheese and wine for dinner whilst watching the film Set It Up, which we actually really enjoyed.

We played some more games and watched TV and have no plans for when it hits 00:00, as you’d expect!

Happy New Year to everyone and let’s hope COVID-19 gets under control at some point in 2021! 🤞


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 139: Vancouver, BC – New Years Eve 2019

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work and noticed there were two tickets for him to work on, requesting assistance with a migration.

That took up most of the day for Curtis, but he did have a little bit of time to do a few other things.

Curtis’ day was shorter as the office closed at 15:00.

Curtis took the train home so he got home in time for the Leafs game to start!

Curtis watched the leafs game and did a few things around the apartment whilst waiting for Kim to get back home.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day by going over the flagged emails she has before cracking on with the meeting room tidy up. Kim cleaned all the whiteboards and ensured all the meeting rooms had everything they needed in them.

After this Kim continued with emails before having a meeting / catch up with her colleague. It was great to get the tine to touch base about some of the projects that they are working on and to also catch up in general.

Kim then ran out to get lunch before the whole handful of people in the office shared a couple of bottled of bubbly to celebrate the beginning of a new year.

Kim finished the day by catching up on a few emails that came in while she was cleaning and then headed home.

New Years Eve

We cuddled up and watched TV whilst we ate cheese and drank wine. A perfect evening, really!

It isn’t yet midnight, but we plan to be awake when it hits the new year.


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 138: Vancouver, BC – Back To Training!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work and there were a few new tickets to take care of.

A couple of these were regarding a recent migration that has started and they were requesting help, so Curtis spent a while dealing with those today.

Along with that, Curtis did a few tickets from people walking up to him and he also made a lot of progress with the project he is working on. He’s nearly finished that!

Curtis walked home in the rain and then did a bit of cleaning around the apartment.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day by organising herself! She sorted and submitted some expenses from months ago, which was great. She then prepared 2 packages and took them to their separate drop off points just before lunch.

After lunch, Kim started the afternoon by running around giving out ice lollies. She then spent the rest of the afternoon working throughout the backlog of stuff she has put off for months. She also took a little time to look into a few things for next years holiday party!

2 Classes

For the first time in what felt like forever, Kim had 2 pole classes back-to-back and she loved it! It felt great for her to get back out and do some exercise.

Curtis did some more cleaning and admin at home whilst Kim was out.

Once Kim got home, we watched some TV and that was our evening.

Curtis’ leaving work around 15:00 tomorrow as its NYE and the office closes then!
