Far Away's Law of Karmic Accountancy

I had a letter from the Tax Office yesterday. As I opened it, the first thing I saw was a leaflet entitled 'How to Pay'. That was a hint that it might not be good news. I read the letter anxiously. Apparently I owe 90p in unpaid tax which I must pay before 31 January 2009 or incur a fine. I will spare you my calculations about how much it might have cost to send the letter.

Instead, I refer you to Far Away's law of Karmic Accountancy which suggests that a sum of 90p may turn up sometime soon, by way of compensation. Who knows what governs such quirky magic - perhaps I don't even qualify? If the 90p should appear, I'll be sure to let you know.

Update: More details from Far Away here.

Should this law in fact hold true, I can count on an imperial shitload of money coming my way Real Soon Now.

I shall look forward to that

I think you just have to believe in it. And possibly live in South Africa and travel abroad and then return home again. And be a woman.

But good luck with it. I believe.

I don't know about that Helen!
I'm just looking into it now...

Did you not find 20p a week or so go in Battersea? There you go. That's inflation for you, love. x

*ago* lol.

Ah - you're right. Inflation, and HM Revenue & Customs taking their cut.
