Curtis was busy right from the get go today. He had some challenging tickets, which meant he had to think and investigate, which was great, and he also had a few things planned.
He had to help with a meeting, ensuring the polycom was setup and ready to go, but his colleague did that which was helpful! Then, he sat in on the meeting to be there in case he was needed, but thankfully he was not.
Once the meeting was done, it was time to have some lunch and then get right back to work.
Curtis started setting up a laptop for someone who needed a replacement and he did some tickets whilst doing that, too.
Curtis got some further project work done and that meant he is ready for next week’s project kick off!
Curtis had some drinks with everyone in the office and had some really good conversations, mostly with some of the new employees, so it was good to chat with them.
Curtis left quite late as he got carried away with the conversation, leaving around 17:20.
Curtis waited for Kim for a while and then we walked home together.
The first thing Kim sorted was stealing more furniture. The marketing team needs more space to hold their swag and Kim found a smaller cupboard that she could move all of her stuff into, freeing up a larger cupboard. She emptied the small cupboard, moved it to the other side of the building and moved her stuff into it and bow the cupboard is empty for marketing to use.
After the clean out of all of the meeting rooms yesterday Kim had a lot of random stuff to filter through and put away so she spent a bit of time going through that before putting it back in the stationary cupboard.
Then the pizzas arrived which reminded Kim that she had to finish her presentation. So she quickly finished the formatting before setting up the pizzas and getting ready for her presentation.
As Kim is hosting the monthly social talks going forward she thought it best for her to actually do one of the talks. She decided to do her talk on Aerial Acrobatics and it went really well. We had a few technical difficulties during other peoples talks but the first time hosting wasn’t so bad.
After the pizza had been cleared away Kim did a quick check of the meeting rooms and made sure that all of the chairs in each of the meeting rooms matched. She also hid all the older and broken chairs in one room.
After this Kim ran out to pick up some wine and a pack of beer for the Friday afternoon drinks. Then she had the great idea of doing Pokémon themed cocktails so Kim cut up some mango and some lime ready for later.
Kim then caught up on some admin and emails before setting up for the quiz. She set up the bottled drinks, got glasses ready and IT had already sorted the projector. As Kim was making the cocktails people started walking in ready for the quiz. It was quite a good turn out, about 20 people came for the quiz and another 5 – 10 came to watch and chat.
The quiz went amazingly and people loved the cocktails too. After the quiz Kim sorted out some letters and set herself up for next week by going through her emails again and setting up reminders.
We both had a craving for Chinese food, so we ordered that and had to wait for 45 minutes for that to arrive. During this time, Curtis watched hockey and Kim watched some videos.
We got the dinner right at the perfect time and time flew by as we ate and watched some YouTube videos.
We ended up watching some more Vikings and actually slept quite early for a Friday. We feel very tired!
This Time Last Year!
Mr & Mrs Hale
