About henrietta_fielding


I'm a voracious reader and enjoy writing too. I particularly enjoy all things historical, both factual and fictionalised.

I enjoy books, movies, music, yoga, walks by the sea. I love to cook and also I'm lucky enough to enjoy a busy social life. Most of all, I live to dance.
Favorite Books:
Far too many to list! One of my faves is 'Roaring Boys' by Judith Cook. She brings Shakespearian London to vibrant life!
Favorite Authors:
Depends on my mood: but anything from Jane Austen to Dorothy L Sayers to Phil Rickman and anything and everything in between and before and after.
Favorite Movies:
Fave genre would be film noir, also anything from Powell & Pressburger. I do love film in general, but the only genres I would avoid would be rom coms and musicals (shudder). Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule.
Favourite TV Shows:
Usually dramas and history programmes. I'm particularly enjoying The Last Kingdom currently, which is an adaptation of the Bernard Cornwell series.
Favorite Music:
Almost everything, especially if I can dance to it!

It's dinner time. Victor had his walk and his dinner already. I've made an appointment to see a new oncologist on Wednesday. This one specializes in radiation therapy. So we are getting that set up soon. I need to get it over with and move on.


Big hugs to you, Larry. I hope everything gets set up and the treatment organised very soon for you. Keep us posted.

It's our outdoor, socially distanced line dancing class today! Should be blast as always.

I'll grab a coffee and one of Sara's delicious cookies, just for the energy, of course!

Morning all! It's dropped to 7 degrees (or 44 degrees) here and it's raining. Brr! Definitely padded coat and gloves weather! I'll grab a coffee and some of Sara's delicious cookies before I venture out!

Sorry about your team, Elizabeth, but lovely to see you here.

Scott, Sara's cookies are a good way to survive those days of wall to wall meetings.

Larry, I hope your wife gets some real pain relief from the spinal cord stimulator.

Bill, the blackberries were picked locally, so that makes the gin a local speciality! It was a beautiful colour and delicious!

Hope your latest Scamp adventure goes well, Sara! Looking forward to it!

As things are tightening up here from today, our outdoor socially distanced line dance class today has been cancelled, which is a shame. Hopefully, we can carry on in some shape or form in the next weeks.

I'll grab a coffee and some of Sara's delicious cookies. Yum!

Good morning, everyone! We've had a spell of beautiful weather here, with autumnal sunshine. On Saturday evening, I sat outside in a neighbours' garden for an hour (well wrapped up!) having a socially distanced catch up with a home made blackberry gin and tonic, watching the sun set over the sea.

I'll grab a coffee to get moving this Monday morning, plus a few of Sara's delicious cookies.

What a great contest that was! I hope there will be another one soon! Congrats to all who entered. Looking forward to your next Scamp story, Sara!

We *might* get some sunshine today - which would be nice! I'll grab a coffee and some of Sara's delicious cookies to get moving here.

Hope your keys turn up, Sara and thanks for the cookies! Glad your landlord had a spare set.

I'll grab a coffee before I organise myself to get out for an outdoor socially distanced line dancing class! It should be fun. :)

Morning, Sara, thanks for the fresh batch of cookies! Morning, E, how nice to start off the week with positive thoughts.

It should be a warmish day here in sunny (well, overcast but not raining) Ireland, which is a pleasant change. I'll grab a cup of coffee and one of those cute cookies.

Hope everyone is having a good start to the week.

Good evening, Larry! It's late here so I'll skip the coffee and have a lemon and ginger tea.

We're having quite a warm couple of days here. Summer at last! Briefly, anyway. I actually sat outside with a book for half an hour without getting blown away or rained on!

Hope everyone had a good Sunday.

Stillness is an art, a challenge, a marathon, An elusive quality to strive for. Life’s distractions are simpler, Busy-ness, activities, filling the diary, Padding the mind with the next thing to do. The white noise of chatter Externalises focus, Like the buzz of traffic, A sea crammed with boats, The skies packed with planes. So, in this threatening, frightening, enforced stillness, It...

Back To School Challenge: In The Pool

At our local swimming pool, you can clearly perceive the pattern of the school year, especially during the holidays. It gets markedly busier at half terms and the Easter break and even at Christmas (if parents really don’t know what to do with their children on a bad day weather-wise, having steadily worked through all the seasonal movies in the nearby multiplex)! These are brief flurries...

Aegean Adventure

“You’re planning on doing WHAT ?” Isabella exclaimed, her voice emerging higher and louder than she expected, but her startled outburst had little or no effect on her group of friends. The men of the party, Luke and Marius, who were normally so protective of their female companions, just grinned at Aelia and Zenobia, who looked pleased with themselves and quietly excited. “But one of...

Roses are Red

Kate stumbled down the neatly raked path, her glasses steamed up with the heat of raw emotion and half-blinded by tears. She trusted she would find her way to her favourite spot in the Walled Garden if she were blindfolded, or even in the pitch dark. That was if the entrance hadn’t been barred by solid metal doors at nighttime. It was as though she was led by a homing device to her place...

A Glimpse of Heaven

Perched on a craggy outcrop, staring out to sea, the priest opened his mind and his heart to God. In such wild and lonely places, he felt closest to his Maker and His divine word. He was not a young man, and knew his role as a travelling preacher, bringing God’s message to those isolated enough to be those starved of it, would not last forever. Previously, he could put in a day’s march in...

Dancin' the Blues

Dancin’ the blues Is a complicated business; First, you focus on the rhythm, Then you try to feel How your partner moves, Fumbling to sway with his groove: Most of all, you strain to blend with All the glory of That music, In three or four pressurised minutes, When you concentrate intensely On all these elements.   If you can surrender To the beat, your partner, That music, ...
