    Looks like I overpaid tax by a horrendous amount last year, so in a months time I will be getting a refund...

    of £1300

    This means I will have the money to do that intensive driving course I want to do meaning several good possibilities when it comes to getting a job.

    Pity I have to wait a month, but its a great start to 2009!

    Lol

    Well looking at the cost, lessons could come to around 6-700 then another 100 or so on the exams.

    Whatevers left is going towards paying off my last debt, so guess none of this will be fun money lol

    It's a good feeling when you get a rebate off those b@stards!

    But...

    The downside is that your £1300 is worth less then it was when they took it off you and they have also got to keep the interest too.

    It's nice when you get a cheque back from the tax man!

    Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

    The upside is that I could have invested that 1300 quid in Woolworths :blink

    Something I was considering before losing my job, so will probably upgrade next year at some point, when my finances are healthier lol
