Useful, thank you! :)

I just did a favour to my wife awhile ago to help dry up her long hair with the new hairdryer

I last did a favour today, when my mother and my little sister got back home. I helped to held their purchases from the door to the kitchen.
After done that I decided to whip up. I put some meal into the cooker and then I chopped up some vegetables to eat with the meal, and finally I heated some frozen milk in the kettle.

It was a great pleasure when I got opportunity to help someone.

It's happen almost every day, I help my family, my friend whatever I can

It's great lessons.

Thank you for the lesson. I learned there're a lot of different expressions. ;)
Have you got a minute? I need a favour.
Would you be able to work on it this afternoon?
Is there any chance you could work late tonight?
Could you come in early tomorrow?
Can you get in for 5 a.m.?

Nice lesson.

Maybe every day. ;)

I don't remember when I did, though I remember when someone did. It was yesterday, I was at cafe, and terminal for pay is broken, and I had't cash. I call to my friend, and ask a favour. I said "Hi Vova, can you help me, I have problem, plz send money to that number, I will send you back in 1 minutes."
