Money transferred to bank, but still in PayPal. Spending both?

I transferred £150 from a website to PayPal, I couldn’t transfer to my bank account. I then transferred money from PayPal to my bank account. I spent the money and applied for a £200 overdraft from my bank. This was declined because PayPal had tried to deduct £151.99 from my bank account and then refunded it. I checked my PayPal account and it says I have £80 available. My husband has spent £70 thinking it was coming from our bank account, but it seems it was coming directly from PayPal. Basically from £150 I had paid in. But I transferred that out, so how has this happened? How was the money in my bank account and PayPal with both amounts of £150 being available to spend and why did PayPal try to take £151.99 from my bank account without my knowing?
