Had Jen, Jamie and Simon and Kevin over for dinner - like you care.
I'll tell you the story about the Inland Revenue instead, that's
much more interesting.
I got an email from my folks the other day. They said that they
had got a letter from the Inland Revenue (our
tax office) demanding that I supply self-assessment forms
(forms that you fill in every year to declare
your earnings and tax liability) for the last two years,
oh, and have a he-a-uge (big) fine for
not having done it the last time that they asked me.
Eh? But? What? Bugger! I haven't been in the country for 10 months.
I hadn't had any letters asking for any information - and neither
had my parents. I'd been working PAYE (Pay As
You Earn - you pay your tax as you work) for almost three
years - my tax should all be very simple and straightfroward.
Anyway, after my dad had a chat with them, it turned out that I
did in fact owe some additional tax, but given the fact the the
sum amount was 2p (work it out in your own
currency) they decided to write
the loss off and cancel the fine - phew.
I go on holiday on Sunday hurrah!
