It stands to reason that if I am writing in this blog, I would be embracing all qualities of the regency life. So it should come as no surprise that my interest have been peeked by social structures and rules of behaviour.
With a little digging you can find a wealth of info online. Some of it better then others, but all of it interesting. This got me thinking, how many of these rules of behaviour could a modern young lady really stick to? How long would some one who was more comfortable with Carrie Bradshaw, then with Lizzie Benett be able to manage even one night?
So this week I have started to see how far I can take this. It’s shown up in now in the fact I have been trying to sit properly. Up straight with my knees together. Easy right? Well yes for about ten minutes. After that I start to feel it in my legs. However it has forced me to sit up straighter. While my legs now hurt my back has never felt better.
Like anything it’s all relevant to what you are used to and slowly I am trying to get used to this. Even as I write then I am not sure why this seems like the thing to do, other then I find myself getting more and more involved in regency life style as part of the hobby. Make believe for grow ups.
