She continued: “That insecurity and the question of what the future would hold for our family kept me awake at night, wondering, worrying.”
Despite the sleepless nights and worries, Amanda explained that her husband, Clive, who is 22 years older than the Shepherdess, tried to reassure her about losing Ravenseat.
She added: “’Life’s too short to worry about the what-ifs, yer not supposed to know what’s in’t future,’ Clive would say.
“‘Ay, I’d agree but unfortunately the fact that I’m considerably younger than you means I’m gonna be the one left with the worries.’
“He’d scowl [because] nobody likes to think about their mortality and Clive was no exception.” (sic)
