Missives from the 94107

Hello one and all,

So I've done it. This is the first blog post from the city by the Bay. Yes indeed I've upped sticks and got myself over to San Francisco, and having arrived almost two weeks ago, I've been putting off this blog and feeling reasonably guilty about it.

I've been trying to work out why I haven't written anything and the general rule of thumb I write by is that with my writing, there's no sense pushing it. Something will happen when it happens, and then I've write about it. And yes, whilst in the sense that I've moved 6000 miles, a lot has gone on, in terms of things to write about I've still been waiting for inspiration.

I think my current writer's block can be in part attributed to two things; firstly, this blog isn't a diary of my life and there are lots of things that happen that I'll never share on here as it's too personal. This isn't, nor will ever be, one of those blogs. And secondly, after working every day for almost a year, and after keeping myself busy to the point of exhaustion, I am simply loving doing nothing. I've slept off a hangover until 11am and can't remember the last time I did that. I spent an afternoon hoovering and dusting, not the usual 10 minute speed clean of the last 12 months. And I baked a cake. Laugh all you want but it was pretty tasty.

So there you have it, the first post from San Francisco and I'm telling you nothing except how much I'm enjoying domestic bliss. Let's hope something grabs my attention this week!

PS RE the title, E3 was where I was living, 94107 is where I'm living now...
