Building with blocks!

In my downtime, I've been getting back into some Minecraft.

Part of this has to do with the cross-platform (or "Bedrock") edition being released on Nintendo Switch. It's easy to justify some game time when I'm sitting on the train on my way into work during the week. There isn't too much else that I can be doing, so I can spend a solid 40-50 minutes on this.

Another thing that influenced me into trying the game again was the release of Update Aquatic. There's something very freeing about diving into the ocean and going for a swim in Minecraft - it's changed from being the most inconvenient way of travelling (without a boat) to the most fun method of travel.

Then there's the dolphins. Swimming around, chittering and leaping out of the water with the playfulness of children.

Have you had some downtime recently? If not, stop working for a while and take a break. Read a book, have a quick siesta, hack away at that personal project you've been meaning to get to for so long ... or play Minecraft.

I'd love to hear what you do when you need a break. Get in touch and let me know!
