Truthful Tuesday: 21 February

Di is our temporary host for Truthful Tuesday, originally started by PCGuyIV. Here is this week’s question.

My question this week is
If someone offered you a considerable amount of money for doing them a favour, would you take it?

My answer is it depends on what the favour was.

If the favour involved doing something illegal or something that I did not feel comfortable doing I wouldn’t do it even for a considerable sum of money. I wouldn’t do it for a friend or a family member and I certainly wouldn’t do it for someone I was not close to.

I don’t have many of the large sized notes in my purse 🙂

If the favour did not involve anything dodgy and was something I felt OK about doing then I would do it and depending on the circumstances I might not even take the money. I wouldn’t feel right to take money from someone unless it was to cover expenses or something like that. Well, maybe if I knew that the person who needed the favour could afford it I would but I don’t know many people like that.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. I feel the same way as you do. Won’t do anything illegal or immoral for any amount of money. I’d not take money from a friend or a relative either.
