Hello… I’m Jem. I’m a blog post writing, website making, heavy weight lifting, geek t-shirt collecting, feminist mama geek. Or something like that.
I create things online, for money: websites, content, bad jokes on twitter (nobody pays me for that one really).
I play mum to two kids who fill my life with love and laughter, and are the cause of my drinking problem (jokes).
I am married to a fellow nerd, who completes me *retch* & makes me feel happier than I ever thought possible. We ‘tied the knot’ in a private ceremony in May 2016, on the second anniversary of when we met.
I occasionally run a variety of distances (although won’t be breaking any records any time soon) and like to lift heavy weights because it makes me look badass. Or just an ass, not sure which.
I have a bit of a pet “problem”. At any one point I have several cats, rabbits and guinea pigs (current count: 4 cats, 2 rabbits, 7 guinea pigs). To stop me from creating my own mini zoo, I regularly volunteer at Shropshire Cat Rescue. Unfortunately this hasn’t quite worked as plan, as several of current animals were adopted from the rescue anyway.
I’m stubborn, sarcastic, honest to a fault (probably not a good idea to ask me if your bum looks big in that) and have a habit of being a bit of a “know it all”. Probably because I really do know it all.
I love to read, collect geek t-shirts and vaguely remember a time when I had chance to be a gamer. I like cake, wine, ice cream and bacon. Did I mention wine?
I am actively involved in a boycott of all Nestlé products.
