    Laptop? Sounds like you're hitting the touchpad while you type.

    funnily enough my desktop does the same. I'll be typing an email or
    letter and for no reason it'll jump to the line above.

    I'll be interested to hear any reasons and what TF I can do to stop it
    as it bugs the bejesus out of me

    Maybe you've got a buggy mouse, cordless mouse getting interference?

    Wireless network (your computer or in close proximity)?
    Touchpad or wireless mouse?

    With the combination above I sometimes observe very erratic mouse
    pointer behaviour (moving and "clicking"). The common solution is to
    restart the computer. Sometimes it helps to disable mouse or network,
    but it's not foolproof, besides, that's not always an option.
