Happy New Year folks!

This is going to be a good year for me; this is the year when money flows from the government to me rather than the other way around: ) I will be 65 in February so able to draw the government pension. Unfortunately the combination of my company pension with the government pension means I will be paying more income tax :(

     Wow we should all have this problem of having to pay a little more Income Tax, when we retire.  If you have to pay more tax, it means that more money is coming in to the coffers, so if more money is coming in, means you have more money to spend also.
      We must always look at the brighter side of things.

Unless of course it knocks you into a higher tax bracket, and gives you less to spend, then it turns it into a    REAL BUMMER ! ! ! !

Might be that transatlantic language thing Bill, maybe Graybeard might like to clarify whether he meant "more" as in more than before or "more" as still paying some.
If the former then yes as you say a problem we'd all like

To clarify: My company pension is small enough that I don't pay much income tax. The government pension will have me paying more tax.
Although I am getting about a third of my final salary my wife and I seem to be managing quite well financially. Kids have left home, house paid off, cheap car to run. I'm not complaining!
I intend to put my government pension into a savings account because my daughter will be moving to Perth next year and we will want to visit her.

Have we gone far enough off topic yet?

Well good luck with that Graybeard, not much in the way of interest these days, I changed to Santander bank to get the 3% on 3 to 20 grand and cashback on energy, council tax an comms, even with the tax off (3% = 2.4%) it's better than an ISA.

So far it's been OK

Happy New Year all.
I'm happy, I sold the A65 on new years eve. I now have spending $ for the IOM, 147 days to go.
I sort of like this time of year. I have to ride the bikes, too much terrorist I mean tourist traffic on the road. Lucky I use the motorcycle lane (the skinny lane down the middle) >:D *razz*.
Cheers

Have to agree, I think they are useless, fingers much better.  I have one in the bottom of my toolbox, been there for years "just in case".  I think it is like one of the gadgets you can't do without seen on the day time sales channels or at the Ideal Home show, looks and sound just what the doctor ordered but in reality just a waste of money.  Ah well, live and learn, hopefully!
