The mum-of-nine admitted: “I know a lot of people will think ‘Well, not a lot has changed with your life as a shepherd’ and while it may seem like in the countryside, the pandemic is so very far away but that’s actually not the case.
“In the first instance, we have diversified as a farm and we are very reliant on tourists.
“The first six months of the year is very hands on with the sheep throughout the winter but, come the end of lambing season, we’re looking after people instead, shepherding tourists.
Amanda went on to say that her worries about the virus in general also left her up late at night worrying.
She explained: “Having nine kids at home is not continuative with good sleep patterns, I can tell you.
“I mean, you’ve got all the issues with homeschooling and questioning yourself about what is going to happen to the world and whether you’re doing the right thing.”
Amanda said: “You do not realise how much water you use until you haven’t got any.
“Fortunately, we do have a river in close proximity to the house, but still it’s all to carry.”
She continued: “We’ve had water off for 10 days before which was really, really bad.
