Q. If you could go back in time, what would you change?

A. I’d go back to school and re­ally work hard in lan­guage lessons. It’s only since I left school that I got the taste for learn­ing and, the older I get, the more I want to learn. It just seems harder as you get older. JANE TURNBALL

I’d take life at a slower pace. LYNDA GRENYER

I would have packed a ruck­sack and trav­elled the world be­fore I took on the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of a mort­gage and chil­dren! I’m mak­ing up for it now, though. Ear­lier this year, aged 57, I fi­nally ful­filled a life­long am­bi­tion to jun­gle trek with ele­phants in Thai­land. SARAH MARCHANT

I’d spend less time wor­ry­ing. BETHANY BROWN­ING

I would not shed one tear when I found out my first baby would be born with Down’s syn­drome. I would have seen more than a di­ag­no­sis on a sheet of pa­per. I would have seen the blonde haired, blue-eyed boy whose laugh lights up all our hearts. FARRAH O’RE­GAN

The length of my child­hood – I’d make it last longer so I could con­tinue do­ing all the fun ac­tiv­i­ties kids do. MANDY O’NEILL
