Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

In Australia, our monetary notes are different colours, according to denomination. They are also made of plastic, not paper, and are regarded as the most difficult notes to forge.  While I sometimes put them into my purse in order of value, I often just leave them however they end up, as I can see the ones I need by their colour.

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

My favourite kind of dog is an Australian heeler – either blue or red. They are intelligent working dogs (with cattle) but are also great to have as a pet. I have had both a blue heeler – when the kids were young) and a red heeler (when I lived in a remote community in the Northern territory).

If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise?  If so where would you go?

No! To go on a cruise would be the opposite to what I want and need. I would hate to be cooped up on a ship with only frivolous activities to keep me occupied. I would much prefer to go camping in the bush for a week or two and commune with nature!

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

As I don’t believe in ghosts, I would probably have no problem doing that. If somethimg were to happen, I would be really interested to see if there were really a ghost there.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

This last five days, hubby and I have spent time camping, visiting family, and seeing more of our lovely country and our heritage.

As we are now home again, I am looking forward to getting the yard mowed and tidy again, and catching up with some writing.

  1. Just a word about cruises. We went on one around Hawaii for seven days. Each day we went ashore on different islands and did amazing things – rode bikes from the top of a volcano to the beach, paddled a canoe to Captain Cook’s last resting place, flew in a helicopter over incredible “Jurassic Park” scenery to mention just a few of the things we did. Each night we had our comfortable cabin to return to. From our balcony we saw lava spewing into the sea at night and the magnificent coastline of Kawaui. The entertainment on the ship was fun, especially the skits performed by the crew. Please don’t dismiss all cruises. They can be wonderful experiences.

    • Linda, I will try to keep a more open mind about cruises – not that I am likely to ever go on one due to financial constraints. I suppose I have just heard too much about the frivolous activities that go on, and not enough about the positive aspects that you share. Thank you for another perspective. :-0

  2. I had absolutely no idea that your money was made of plastic. Now there’s a thing for you. Must be a very thin plastic. 🙂 Great post Linda

  3. It’s wonderful to get away from it all and pleased you had a good time 🙂
