Modes; Creative vs Survival

Lately, all I blog about is how hard it is to find time to make. And that's still my theme, really. I've been letting other things take precedence. My husband's been working hard, long hours and quite a lot of travel. The kids haven't been 100%. Lots of reasons, or excuses, depending on how bad I'm feeling.

We're nearing the end of school holidays, and have had a pretty busy time.

We've made glass tiles, visited the Mint and seen robots making our money, we've had lunch with Daddy.

We've played in the new Pod playground at Canberra's Arboretum (along with every other child in town these holidays), been swimming and been to Sydney to see Disney on Ice. We've caught up with two sets of cousins, and been to see two kids movies (Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University.) the girl's been horse riding, the boy's been to an AFL clinic. And a play date each.

The kids have played surprisingly little Minecraft, due to worries about some of the scary characters encountered. Even choosing creative, instead of survival mode apparently doesn't remove these problems.

Myself, I'm stuck firmly in survival mode. And reading this list over, it's not that surprising.

Meanwhile, tonight I'm planning to knit. Watch some tv, put the tablet down, and knit. It sounds good.
