Rosa’s Birthday

This just in from Yvonne, our own very special Australian correspondent (her blog can be found here).
“I was standing in the queue and spotted this list clutched in the fist of the shopper ahead of me. I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse (you don’t want to know), and I became the proud owner of the list.
It was at the Coles Supermarket, Myrtleford. Cheers!”

There are many points of interest here, it does indeed to appear to be Rosa’s Birthday and Rosa’s will be getting a scarf and card at least – maybe some eggs too? I am not sure if the carpet cleaner is for her.

The ‘Spray and Wipe’ is not a brand we have in the UK, a quick Google shows this: Colgate Ajax Spray n Wipe 

Now, about the wire wool… The list so far is pretty typical with the usual mix of food stuff and cleaning bits, but wire wool? This is a strange addition, maybe a little too strange as the author hastily crossed it off the list shortly after adding it.

The note paper is is great with tea and cakes shown, the handwriting is female. 

Many thanks Yvonne, what did you have to promise to get your hands on this list? Whatever it was, it is much appreciated.

Eggs Rosa, Money, cucumber, potatoes, red onions, cos lettuce, cream x 2, bacon, deodorant, spinach, vanilla, mushrooms, coffee beans, washing power, toilet cleaner, spray n wipe, toilet things, steel wool, dishwasher cleaner, b’day card Rosa, scarf for Rosa, preen carpet cleaner.

  1. I was so chuffed to see aa available list in a shopper’s fist. If I told you what I promised, I’d have to kill you!

    Re: the steel wool I reckon she realised she had some, way back o the shelf under the sink.

    Merry Christmas to all and sundry.

  2. Eggs next to Rosa could mean that shopper is making her a birthday cake and a reminder to get more eggs than usual – Rosa might be given Money for her birthday too. Wire wool (to clean pans) but then found some under the kitchen sink…

  3. Reblogged this on Hello World and commented:
    All around the globe, people will be wishing Rosa a Happy Birthday.

    Thank you, Paul, for posting another Aussie shopping list.

    I hope Santa has you on his shopping list!

  4. came here from Yvonne’s blog – and happy bday to Rosa…
    and by the way – I have a few shopping lists to send your way Paul – I will get to it later this month….

    in the mean time – looking forward to your posts and wishing you a good night.
