I got home tonight to find a rather officious looking envelope waiting for me. 'What's this?' thinks I. 'Someone probably wanting money, no doubt.'
On the contrary, it's a letter from what used to be called the Inland Revenue, giving me a tax rebate for the year that I left IBM and changed careers. Attached to the letter was a cheque. For near-as-dammit £1000.
Now I don't feel quite so guilty for buying that World of Warcraft mouse...
