The daily life for Victorians depends on where you stand in society.
This is usually my typical day...
7:15 a.m. Our maid Emily wakes me up and brings my tea up to me. Then, she helps me to get dressed. It is mandatory to get dressed at once, even if it is to just go downstairs. It is unacceptable to be seen in my dressing gown outside of my bedroom, by any family members or house guests. I change my clothes three times a day.
8:30 a.m. I meet with my family in the dining room for prayers, then have breakfast with my father, mother and two brothers.
9:45 a.m. Mother meets with our cook, Mrs. Bennett to discuss today's menu.
12:00 p.m. I may chose to read, sew or call one of my friends. Sometimes mother decides to host a tea party.
Later on in the day, mother and father may decide to dress up and go out to dinner alone. I stay home with my brothers. We all spend time together each day in the drawing room (usually about an hour or so).
Mother's day is about the same, except she may host parties, maintain the budget and has other responsibilities.
