All About Amanda Pellew
NAME: Amanda Pellew (speaking in January 1774)
LIVING ARRANGEMENT: Currently aboard my husband's ship, but
I have newly
purchased lands in Teignmouth.
FAVORITE PASTIME: Fancy netting, it's called crochet, it's
something you can
do on a ship that won't stand still.
FAVORITE BOOK: "How to train a Headstrong Husband" by Hannah Igetwhatiwant
THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Edward's arms around me when
distracted by ships business.
THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Although I haven't experienced
it yet, I'm
sure it will be my husband putting to sea and leaving me ashore, not knowing
what is happening to him and rearing our children alone.
FAVORITE SMELLS: Fresh ground coffee in the morning.
WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING:
Another day in
the pleasure of his company. (I am a newly wed you know.)
BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: Both. Scary when I think of Teddy
in harm's way,
exciting when I am able to help in the fighting. I'm a little bit of a warrior
myself, I think.
FAVORITE FOODS: I have become quite fond of Spotted Dog
CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: Chocolate, dark and bittersweet. (Edward
says you have
to take the bitter with the sweet and it is true.)
STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: Very cool. Especially hurricanes.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?:
I would have
told Wyndham Marnies where to go that night in Kingston when Edward almost
wrecked his career. It would have saved us both a lot of heartache.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT
BE: I would slow
down and think before I act. I do a lot of things in a hurry and get upset when
others don't think or act as fast as I do.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE? That's a silly question, we would
not be having
this conversation if I wern't.
IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: HALF EMPTY!? Half full,
of course, it
has to be, the Captain is the pessimist in this family. He has enough for both
WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: Having something go wrong with
this child I
WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: To see Edward an admiral and a
lord and retired
home with me.
WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: Edward being killed in battle in front of me.
WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY DON'T:
That I am a
competent business woman and can manage our estates and businesses while my
husband fulfills his duty.
