The hubby is going to have to take the "Life in the UK" test soon in order to apply for his "Indefinite Leave to Remain". This entails reading a book and then taking a 24 MCQ test. Now, my hubby hates to read. The only book he'll pick up is the Argos catalog. That and any other catalogs with lots of pictures of phones, laptops, bicycles etc. So I thought I'd help him out by reading it with him and making notes. We're only on the first chapter and already I've learnt so much about the UK I didn't know (I went to school in Pakistan and so know next to nothing about British history). It's rather interesting seeing as I hated history when I was younger. It's the condensed condensed version of UK history but that's how I like my history. Unless I want to know more, that is.
All I need to do now is get the hubgby to sit with me tomorrow so we can get past the section on the Norman conquest and delve straight into the Middle Ages.
