Place 49 – Day 287: Auckland – Crazy Moon!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis got to work and put on a pot of coffee, which ended up being way too strong!

Curtis had a few things to do again, but this got interrupted when a client said that their website was down, so Curtis had to deal with that which took him up to lunch time.

After lunch, Curtis used the time to get the rest of his cases sorted and he managed to get a few done.

Both of us;

Kim got home and went straight to the gym.

Once Kim got home from the gym, we ate some pizza and chicken for dinner whilst watching a few YouTube videos. Curtis also cooked some rice for us to have with lunch tomorrow.

We watched a few more YouTube videos and then did some accommodation research for our next road trip.

The moon this evening was ridiculously big and bright…looked incredible.

Place 49 – Day 286: Auckland – Hail

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis had a good sleep last night, which was a relief.

Curtis got to work at the usual time and began working on his cases and answering emails.

He had a big chunk of work to get done which he worked on throughout the day.

During lunch, Curtis had to go down to a client as they had an external contractor arrive which Curtis had to help with. Originally, Curtis drove down to the client which was in the city. Unfortunately, there was no parking anywhere and it was raining and hailing so Curtis went back to work and got dropped off to the client by his boss.

Curtis spent a while at the client and then risked the walk back. The wind was so powerful that Curtis nearly got blown over a few times!

Curtis got back to the office, finished off a few cases and did some admin before leaving the office at 16:10.

Both of us;

When we were both home, Kim spent most of the evening booking some things for a trip we are taking soon.

We had leftover chilli for dinner and Curtis made amazing rice again! We watched TV whilst we ate and then got dessert we had popcorn and Maltesers.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 285: Auckland – Best Rice Ever

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis just got to work on time after leaving a bit late after he didn’t sleep well at all last night.

Curtis got to work and again, right from the get go, had some emails to check and reply to as well as some other things.

The work seemed to pile on again today, but Curtis did get to do some different, interesting things which made time go fast.

Both of us;

Once Kim got home, we went for a walk to the supermarket, which seemed like a good idea until it started to rain. Luckily, we arrived at the perfect time and got into the shop nice and dry.

As we left the supermarket, it was a much different story! It was absolutely chucking it down…we waited for a bit and then braved it. We ducked into a Chinese bakery and looked at the goods on offer to have another break from the weather. When we left, the rain had subsided a little so we hastily made our way back home.

Once we got home, we made a delicious chilli con carne. Curtis made what is probably the best rice ever made and they whole meal was phenomenal!

We watched a few more episodes of No Offence which made us incredibly tense and then went to bed, hoping to get a better night of sleep.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!

Place 49 – Day 284: Auckland – Takapuna Beach Walk & Vietnamese Coffee

We woke up fairly early at around 09:00.

We had cereal for breakfast and watched a YouTube video.

After breakfast, Curtis watched the Leafs game and Kim chilled out.

After the Leafs game, we went out to Takapuna and went for a walk along the beach! The weather was absolutely beautiful.

Before we went to the beach, we went to a place called Nam Nam which is a Vietnamese street food place. We got a Vietnamese coffee and a Banh Mi each!

We ate our Banh Mi and drank our Vietnamese coffee and went to the beach.

There was a lot of dogs which was great for Kim. We walked up and down the beach and chatted for ages!

After the beach we went to the shop to get some food for tonight as well as the week.

After the shop, we went back home and relaxed for the evening.

We watched two episodes of a Swedish/British TV show, called Fallet, and then played a bit of fortnite which we haven’t done for a while!

After this, we had our lasagne we bought for dinner.

Post dinner, we watched No Offence (thanks Tom & Maggie for letting us know it’s out!) And then spoke to Kim’s family on FaceTime.

Curtis didn’t get his haircut today as he didn’t want to go somewhere that wasn’t his usual barber…That’s a next week job.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 283: Auckland – An Incredible Game & A Birthday Party

We woke up at 10:30 which was the perfect time to wake up!

We had a sausage each from last night as well as scrambled eggs, beans and mushrooms.

Breakfast

We finished up with breakfast and then Curtis watched the Leafs’ pre-season game.

At 14:00, Curtis took Kim to a birthday party! This was for a colleague at work. We stopped by at the supermarket to get some flowers for the birthday girl and some drinks.

Curtis dropped Kim off, got some fuel and went home.

At 15:30, Curtis left to go to his hockey game. As he got halfway down our road, he realised he didn’t swap his glasses for contact lenses, so he turned around, put them in and then was off again.

Curtis got to the rink and had a good feeling about the game! This game was against the Bears, who are currently last place.

Curtis’ team started sloppy and after 2 periods, they were down 1-0.

In the 3rd period, the Scorpions turned it up and scored two goals in the last 5 minutes to come out with a win! Curtis got an assist on one goal and felt that he had a good game in general.

One more game left in the season and then it’s playoff time!

Curtis drove home, showered and ate some pizza. On the drive home, there were some incredible skies!

Kim had a great time at the party. She was playing games and of course drinking, but she really enjoyed herself.

Kim got a lift home via KFC and got herself a twister wrap.

Once Kim got home, we watched some YouTube videos and then went to sleep!

Curtis needs to get a haircut tomorrow but his usual barber is closed so he had to find a new one!

Place 49 – Day 282: Auckland – Catching Up on TV

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis had absolutely no traffic on the way to work so got there 20 minutes early.

The morning was ridiculously busy! Curtis started the day with 5 cases and by 11:00 he had 12! Only 2 cases got done in the morning and then he had his lunch, which was much anticipated.

Once Curtis finished lunch, he planned to have a remote session but the remote software stopped working so it took a while to get that done!

Curtis left to go home and 16:20 and once he got home he wanted for Kim to get back.

Both of us;

Kim went to buy a fan after work and then came home.

We put on a wash and then made dinner together.

We made sausages, potatoes, green beans and gravy!

For the evening, we caught up on Suits and The Great British Bake Off before sleeping.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 281: Auckland- Workout Action Shots

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis didn’t have to visit a client today, which was good!

Curtis got to work really early. He hit every light perfectly so didn’t have to queue anywhere!

Curtis finally had some work to do today and it felt good to be busy as the day went fast.

Both of us;

Once Kim got home, we went to the gym.

The gym wasn’t too busy so we could actually use what we wanted to use.

We started on the crosstrainer and then made our way to other machines.

We spent a while on leg machines and then moved to arm/upper body machines.

Workout

Workout2

After these, we did some sit ups, planking before we decided we were hungry and tired and went back home.

Kim made fajitas for dinner which were stunning as ever.

We watched videos and then went to sleep! Tomorrow is Friday!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
