Hi there, internet traveller!

I’m Gem: a prolific daydreamer, nature lover, food fiend, self-confessed country mouse, and unabashed Oxford comma addict. I don’t have much in the way of years, or height, or the ability to open jars, but I’m trying not to let any of that hold me back too much.

This, I should warn you, is the blog equivalent of a mongrel – it’s a complete mish-mash of everything from conservation to crème brûlée, that basically boils down to a strange (but hopefully enjoyable) hybrid between a particularly embarrassing diary and a scrapbook of my adventures.

Welcome to the inside of my head. Try not to be too alarmed.
