I'm having a bit of a trouble here while trying to compose a "It has been" in the past.
I'm aware that if I want to say for example that I started to study English 2 years ago and I keep studying it I could say this:
It has been 2 years since I started studying English. But what I want is a bit different.
It's hard to explain, so I'll give a "timeline".
Yesterday I said:
It's been 2 days since I should have started the book
Today I've started the book, but I want to say to my friend that besides the fact that I started the book today, took me 2 days to start it. How could I phrase it? I would try something around this:
It's been 2 days since I should have had started the book but I'm pretty sure that this is wrong. Maybe even my Yesterday phrase is incorrect.
Can someone help me? Thanks.
