My name is Ruth Hine. I live in Penarth in South Wales – a lovely small town just outside Cardiff known as “The Garden By The Sea”. I live here with my husband and my two dogs, Albert (a Chocolate Labrador) and Daisy (a rescue Golden Retriever.)
Before moving to Penarth I had a career as a Criminal Barrister in the UK Civil Service. I also had a parallel career as a stand-up comedian! It is amazing how many times the two careers overlapped!
However, after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011 and moving to South Wales I finally had to take early retirement in 2015.
Since retiring, I have been able to concentrate upon my many hobbies and obsessions – from Crafts to Politics (Oh look! There’s that overlap with Comedy again!)
In particular, I am obsessed with creating beautiful fused glass work (which I am beginning to sell on my Etsy store). I have a small studio, with kiln, set up in my spare room where I can play and create
lovely things in glass – at least I hope they are lovely.
I’m hoping that this Blog will be a useful and entertaining combination of all of my varied obsessions
and that it will, at least, give you the occasional chuckle.
(and woofs and wags from Bert and Daisy too!!!!!!!
