AN 88-year-old woman has confessed that her biggest regret is that she did not spend more time ironing clothes.
Margaret Gerving of Guildford admitted she also wishes she had devoted more of her life to cleaning skirting boards, reading the classics and tweeting about politics.
Kelly said: “I always thought when the end came I’d regret not spending more time with my family, but if I could turn back time I’d spend more Sundays working through a stack of school uniform.
“It breaks my heart remembering laughing and playing with the children when I could have done six hours of hot steam and sent them to school looking crisp and smart.
“Sure they grew up happy, I had a fantastic career, travelled the world, but the thought of those creased clothes is going through me. Why didn’t I realise what was important?
“I may only have a few days left. And I’m sure as hell going to use them tackling that ironing pile.”
