Finally, I believe I have returned from my very extended hiatus. I did not plan to be gone this long, but a brief illness had me unable to write, let alone think, for a little while, and of course, the holidays are in full swing and it is quite difficult to find the time to sit down at my laptop for longer than it takes to go through all my e-mails (which are a lot and mostly Christmas advertising). I wanted to come back with a bang, though, and I think I have found it!:
Click on the above link to view the new BBC series "At Home with the Georgians" hosted by Amanda Vickery. It is so spot on with my own research interests and is quite an enjoyable look at life, married and unmarried, during the Georgian period. We even get a privileged glimpse of Chawton Cottage, Jane Austen's home for many years and where she wrote most of her novels.
If, like me, you are not from the UK, you need to download Expat Shield in order to view this series. It will then think you are indeed an "expatriot", so you then, as a qualified Brit, would be allowed to view the show :). Happy viewing, and enjoy!
best of: got some time for the blues?
