Also: this is a hobby. That means paying for my own shit or cadging off loved ones to do so.

My name is Gem. I write poetry and started this blog during a serious bout of writer’s block. For a while, (my ex-boyfriend) Tristan occasionally wrote and provided gorgeous photographs. You can find him on Twitter under the username @tristankenney, whose photographs you can also view publicly on Flickr.

I used this blog to help remember the things I learnt about craft beer and food (cooking and eating). Hopefully, I’ll start using it to blog about the things I attempt to cook in between bouts in hospital.
