• Driving Lessons.

All 3 are things which will earn me the money back, I was simply using the availability of the money as an 'advance' so I could get into the work quickly.

That is the only way I would use such large gifts of money. I would not buy something that I could not normally afford using a one-off payment, other than things which:
a) I would need to buy anyway, AND
b) Will SAVE / MAKE me money by having sooner rather than later.

Such things include:
•*Training / equipment for work - that will actually make money. That's like, not saying 'A U67 is for work' , that's like 'A rigging harness actually let me start up-rigging and earning the extra money, which I COULD NOT DO without the harness'.
•*Getting a mortgage, rather than paying rent forever
•*Paying off debts in a oner, rather than paying interest forever.

I would honestly suggest you do the same. A U67 is not going to make you, or save you, any money. Use the big cash advance that Nana sent to buy something you need right now, and will cost you if you don't buy now... and then buy luxuries when you can actually afford them.
You put a lot of time in this post, and I apologize for deceiving you.

I hope you can forgive me.
