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!

Hello Larry, I'll stick the coffee on today for you and anyone else who pops in.

Hope the doctor's visit went as well as possible? (hugs)

Good morning, Larry! Hugs to you, Gill. That sounds like a whole lot of stress and worry on top of the exhaustion of having got your parents' house ready to sell. (hugs)

I'm not convinced by banana tea but a cup.of coffee will do nicely. ☕

Good morning, poor, empty coffee house. I think I will just brew a pot of simple arabica to start the day. Feel free to have a cup if you please.

Off to the dentist in a couple of hours.

Cheers, all. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_flower.gif" alt="flower">

I'm here, Larry! *waves* I'll join you with a cup of that arabica

Hope the visit to the dentiist's went as smoothly as possible. (hugs)

I'll grab a herbal tea here as it's getting too late for coffee! :)

Yesterday, in Beaumaris, on the Island of Anglesey, North Wales, I found an amazing butchers/Deli shop.

In their heated pie cabinet they had the most gorgeous looking pies and sausage rolls I have ever seen.
Minted Welsh Lamb, Steak and ale, etc, etc.
Sadly, due to my health, I had to walk away but they looked so good I could not have stopped at just one...

I will drown my sorrows with a double espresso please. <img src="/images/emoticons/coffee.gif" alt="coffee">

That is a shame you had to walk away from such delicious treats, Anna! Hope you are having a wonderful time on Ynys Mon (Welsh for Anglesey) and got a look around Beaumaris Castle!

Coffee for me, please. ☕

Sounds like good news, Larry. Hugs to you! (hugs)

It's a bright, spring-like Monday morning here, for a change! Maybe the seasons are actually changing, rather than giving us a hint and then heading back to winter, sharpish!

A coffee would do very nicely, thank.you. ☕

Hi everyone, I hope all is well. I've not been around much, but have been watching for the next competition.

Are we ready for one?

It's been like six or eight months. I donated my winnings to go toward the next competition. I'd like a chance to do that again. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="icon_biggrin">


Just made my famous mac 'n cheese, with Roma tomatoes and broccoli. I'd love an true Irish coffee please. Extra Irish is ya gots it.

Just thought of this...

It is Northern Irish coffee, or the Republic of Irish coffee?

I don't fully understand why their wonderful island is divided, probably something Trump will have Jared tend to and fix. :-" But I've heard that Brexit will dramatically affect the currently non-provoking border between the two lovely jurisdictions. Sheesh. There is so much we don't know or understand.

But I do know, if I had ever competed in a beauty pageant, I too would wish for world peace.

Now get me my damn coffee!!!

Depends if the coffee is made with Jameson's or Bushmills!

Yes, these are very scary and uncertain times here. The thought of a hard border is terrifying, in terms of the still fragile peace process...

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...

End Game

John strode across the bustle of Piccadilly, the wide road alive with people even at this late hour. He was glad to turn his steps towards home and to disappear into the huddle of dark streets that was Soho. He felt more at ease here in the shadows than he did in the melee of the West End. There, flaming torches lit the way, gilding the streets with an orange glow leading towards the...

The Waking Dream

London, Spring 1816 He clearly remembered when he first became aware of a hint of unease; a sense of otherworldly darkness. Before then in his life, of course, he had moments of disquiet in terms of worry and fretting, but they were normal daylight concerns. He remembered as if from a great distance his medical training in the cool grey light of Edinburgh, his careful studies on...

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, ...
