About henrietta_fielding

Biography

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

Name:
henrietta_fielding
Sex:
Female 
Interests:
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!

I'm not a fan of hot drinks even in the winter I prefer ice cold beverages. I will, however, try to sneak a few marshmallows away from Sara to snack on.

Not looking forward to a cold rainy weekend. Hopefully going out for dinner and a movie later, after dealing with family drama.

I hope everyone is keeping warm.



Family drama sounds grim. Dinner and a movie after sounds well deserved. I think you need a few cocktail umbrellas to spear those mini-marshmallows with, Gill!

Bedtime lemon and ginger tea here, please. I"m wearing layers over my layers. Dank and chilly here. Brrr!

I use Grammarly. It's not perfect but does pick up silly mistakes like missing words, double words etc. - silly things that creep in during editing. It helps.

Me too. As you say, Helen, it's not perfect but it's ever so useful for picking up those little things that the eye can just skip over.

Dinner is on the stove. Hamburger stew. Getting close to ready.

It's time to make some African Red Herbal Tea. Ready to drink after we finish dining.

Cheers, all. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_rr.gif" alt="rr">

Sounds delicious!

Hope you both enjoyed, Larry. :)

Can something be both sad and enjoyable? Yesterday, I was watching a concert in memory of a member of the Canadian pop band Walk Off The Earth. Their keyboard, trumpet, accordion, and other miscellaneous instruments player Mike Taylor, affectionately known as "Beard Guy" to fans, passed away unexpectedly just before New Year's. The concert was held in the band's hometown of Burlington, Ontario, Canada and featured mostly local acts, many with ties to WOTE. Some good performances but some sad moments, too. Sarah Blackwood, the band member who emceed, was in or close to tears several times and had some great stories about WOTE's ties to some of the various guest artists.

Having a tall cup of Orange Pekoe right now.



I'm a big fan of WOTE. I hadn't heard about Mike Taylor's passing, that is so sad. The tribute concert sounds amazing. Emotional and moving and a fitting celebration of his life and talent.

I might go for an Apple and Cinnamon tea, please.

You are far too kind!! I'll go for bedtime herbal tea, please. Maybe lemon and ginger. (Tasty Evening Aromatic) ;) ☕

Love lemon ginger herbal. That's my evening drink right now. I need to get more lemon thriller, the other herbal I drink.

Lemon thriller sounds delish! Pukka teas do a lemon, ginger and manuka honey, which is lovely on a cold winter's day.

Lemon Thriller is a store brand (President's Choice, which is owned by Loblaws, Canada's largest grocery chain) but I don't hold that against it. Love it plain or with a twist or two of lime, which I guess would make it Lemon-Lime Thriller.<img src="/images/emoticons/icon_clown.gif" alt="clown">

Looks lovely, Scott. Thanks for the link! Nothing like an extra twist of citrus for flavour.

As it's morning, I'll have my usual EGT to get going here. ☕

I think this may be better than mine.<img src="/images/emoticons/hello2.gif" alt="hello1">

Tea - Terribly Essential Awakener. Well, for me, anyway! ☕

Pot of Earl Grey, please. I need more than one cup this morning!

Early evening here and cold and dark. A lemon and ginger tea would do nicely. ☕

Really appreciating all the feedback on my story! <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_flower.gif" alt="flower">

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, ...
