Movie Date with Hubby and a lot more

As much as my husband’s schedule permit, we plan a movie date at least twice a month. Yesterday, He told me that he wants to watch a movie and we should use the movie passes that he's co-worker gave him. And so we did today, Not only that we used the free movie passes but also the gift certificate (worth 400 pesos) he won from his Christmas party (they have 3 Christmas party) the previous day. We can't think of anything to buy for ourselves so we decided to spent the gift cert to pet products such as new collar for martha, new leash for nemo and a kilo of dog food.

While walking, I asked my husband if he noticed how we spend our money to our dogs. He answered yes, I noticed "were like other parents who buy first what they children need than what they need for themselves the only difference is we spend our money with our dogs instead of real children. " the only reaction my husband got from me after that is a very wide smile. What he said is certainly true.

By the way, before we went to movie house, the first thing we did is bought he's Kris Kringle gift to his 2nd Christmas party from Marks & Spencer-Greenbelt 3. At first he was hesitant, because we usually buy at glorietta branch. He was intimidated because were wearing slippers. I told him, "Why would you be ashamed? As long as you have money to spend, you shouldn't be ashamed even if you’re wearing rice sacks. It doesn't matter." Hey, before you think I’m bragging let me clarify that, I only said that because my husband’s ego needs a boost. And it works.

Okay, enough of the brouhaha let me describe to you what we bought. It was 2 body sprays in different brands. Harvard Body Spray & Woodspice Body Spray worth 500 pesos. My husband is the one who picked the gifts not me because I’m busy checking the food & women's section for new items. If your planning to give someone special in your life like your mother, sister,etc. I highly recommend Hand & Body Lotion Pack, Soaps, Body Wash, Shower Creme & Foaming Bath Creme. You can also check Food & Wine selections.

My personal favorites are:

  • The Floral Collection Lavender 
  • The Flower Collection Rose 
  • The Flower Collection Water Lily 
  • Digestives Cookies 
  • Rich Tea Biscuits 
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies 

to me marks & spencer store is a wonderland. I could stay there the whole day looking and admiring their products. It's a feast to the eyes and before I forgot, while your paying for your items, asked the staff to put your Christmas gifts to their Christmas bag.

I highlighted the signs & symptoms I have. At first, I barely notice the sign such as being forgetful and when I did, I attribute them to getting older. Other signs are: My thought processes become slow, there are days I feel depressed with no specific reason, Abnormal menstrual cycles (so abnormal that I need to drink medicine to have my period)

Last year, I consulted a endocrinologist and I was diagnosed and treated for hypothyroidism. But I stopped this year (for some personal reason) but the good news is, Next year I'm going to start again my treatment and hoping to get better.
