Place 72 – Day 133: Vancouver, BC – Christmas Day 2019

The Breakfast

Kim went out at 06:00 to go and feed the cats, but came back and went back to bed.

We had the breakfast that Curtis’ family used to have at Christmas, which is pastries and strawberries!

Curtis had some coffee and that was the breakfast done!

The Families

We spoke with Kim’s family after breakfast, which was really nice! Kim opened her presents from her sister, which were some thermals and some items from Lush! Curtis got a thermos, which is orange, his favourite colour!

We then spoke with Curtis’ family and it was really nice as we haven’t spoken to them in a long while.

The Gavin & Stacey

We watched Gavin & Stacey’s Christmas special and it was excellent…exactly what we wanted to be and it’s setup to have more episodes, which we REALLY want!

Whilst we watched this, we had some cheese as a snack.

The Presents

We opened the rest of our presents from each other after watching the TV show.

Curtis got some whiskey and some cocktail mixes, which are things Curtis loves! He also got a hat and a jumper, but he did know of these before Christmas.

Kim got a small LED alarm clock for the bedroom as Kim wanted one that wasn’t too light but was bright enough to see the time at night.

Kim got a new handbag and purse, but she knew about these. She also got a cheese board with a built in utensils draw with the cheese knives in! All of it is made of bamboo, too.

The Dinner

We eventually made dinner, which didn’t take that long.

It was excellent though! Kim got some pigs in blankets brought over from England by someone at work and we had those with chicken, Yorkshire puddings, potatoes, stuffing and vegetables.

After our terrific meal, we watched some TV and then watched some shows on Netflix.

We plan to do more of the same tomorrow and the rest of this evening!


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – day 139: Vancouver, BC – Tiny Patisserie

Morning Workout

We were up around 09:00 and Kim decided she wanted to go and do some exercise, so headed down to the studio for 10:00.

Whilst she was there, Curtis had some breakfast, a coffee and played some games.

A Tiny Patisserie

When Kim got back, we were still hungry for some food, so we walked for about 20 minutes to get to a patisserie which had great ratings.

The patisserie was called L’atelier Patisserie and it was beautiful! Just 4 tables in total (two outside and two inside) and it was weirdly in an industrial estate.

It was clearly a busy place as it had run out of several items by the time we got there, but there was still enough for us to have.

We were very excited to have a croissant, and they didn’t disappoint!

Kim had a double chocolate croissant a Curtis had a standard, plain, one.

The croissants were incredible! flaky, yet buttery!

The coffees weren’t great, but tasty enough!


L’atelier Patisserie | Vancouver, BC

Our rating:- 8.25/10


We left here and walked home, via a shop to get a couple of things.

Hockey

When we got home, we watched a couple of things together and then Curtis watched hockey whilst Kim watched Queer Eye.

Galaxy Buds

Curtis bought Kim Galaxy Buds for her birthday but gave them to her today as they as useful to have for training and exercise!

Suits & Peaky Blinders

We tried some of the new whisky we have and are very much in favour!

We watched Suits and Peaky Blinders whilst we drank this.
