Curtis did some tickets and answered some questions in the morning.
After this, Curtis and a couple of different project meetings and then had some lunch.
Post lunch, Curtis completed a contractor onboard which was pretty easy and fast and then he did some more tickets, some admin and answered some more questions regarding contractor onboarding.
Today Kim helped host the first virtual summer party, for the UK folks. So as it is held in UK time, Kim was up and in the office by 6! She finished setting up the last few things for the Zoom call by getting extention cables and getting all the aspects ready for the cocktail masterclass.
Once her colleague arrived they popped out to to Tim Hortons pick up some breakfast. Kim had a cheese and egg muffin and they ate while the did the audio and visual tests.
Then it was time to go! They started with a couple of introductions and then went straight into the cocktail class. It was so much fun, Kim made a long island iced tea and showed everyone the steps on how to make it and her colleague did the same for a pina colada. After this they went into the pub quiz. There were four rounds, two rounds had general questions about the past two decades and the other two rounds were about the people and the company. All the rounds went so well and people had a great time.
After the party was officially ‘over’ some people still stayed on the call to hang out. So Kim and her colleague hosted a couple of jackbox games which were amazing.
Once the event finished Kim and her colleague had a catch-up to see how well things went. We had a couple of people reach out and say they enjoyed it, so that makes all the work totally worth it!
Kim spent a little time working on her expenses before she had a team meeting with her manager and colleague to go over the event. It was a great meeting with some good feedback, easy changes to implement for the next two!
After this meeting Kim made a few notes and a game plan for the next few days before heading out and catching up with a couple of people. The colleague who left a few weeks ago is flying home this weekend so it made sense to have one final meet up and another colleague joined too! When they met Kim was suddenly hungry, so they went and got a taco from Tacofino and enjoyed that on the enclosed patio thing, as distanced as possible. Then after that they all went and got some cheese tarts and they were amazing! The colleague still at the company will be joining the summer party next week, but didn’t want to make cocktails so they went to pick something up for her to make instead. After that Kim said goodbye and has made plans to go and visit the colleague again sometime when the world opens back up!
Kim then popped back in the office to hang out with her teammate and just have a chat. It was so lovely to just sit, talk nonsense and plan for the next two events a little as well.
When Kim got home, we had some tomato and mushroom pasta which was delicious and then watched some TV and played some games.
Kim was pretty tired as she was up from 5am, so we tried to head to bed at a good time.
This Time Last Year!
Mr & Mrs Hale
