We passed the test

I’m very happy to say that Ben and I both passed the Life in the UK test today. It’s the test you have to take to get indefinite leave to remain or citizenship in the UK. It consists of 24 multiple choice or true/false questions about the UK including questions about kings and queens, sporting heroes, the political system, and values. You need 75% to pass. I’m not sure what my score was because they don’t tell you but I found it pretty easy. I studied by reading the recommended book and doing lots of practice exams.

At the charity shop last weekend I picked up a gorgeous Burberry skirt for £20. It’s wool, fully lined, hangs beautifully, and has a long and daring slit up the side. A scarf at Burberry will set you back £370 so a woollen skirt for £20 is a real find.
