Standard list of staples. Bread, milk, butter, cheese etc. interesting the items are grouped into categories. Biscuits appear twice.

Ruled paper has rounded corners on the left hand side and slight tear marks on the right, suggesting it has been torn from a note book.

Shopping List from Dudley

This list was very kindly donated by Matt from Dudley.

Firstly, pink pen and beautiful cursive script is not a common occurrence in the world of shopping lists. A colourful and welcome addition.

Secondly, the reader of the post on tittles will notice the circle above the first letter i. Circles are replaced by dots further down.

On apostrophes, there is ‘Choc’s’ and ‘Dogs Food’.

Other items include some staples including crisps, gravy, biscuits, cheese and jam. What is slightly unexpected are the ‘bum wipes’ and two types of shampoo.

What a great list. Thank you Matt!

Predominately non food items. Of the 3 items which are edible, it is unusual to see gum on a shopping list.

After sun speaks to warm weather or a holiday.

Tittles – The Dots on Letters i and j

Some people, instead of using a simple dot above the Latin letters i and j, use full blown circles. The owner of this list was one of those people.

Did you know, this tiny, little superscript dot has a name? It is called a tittle.

The tittle on milk is nearly a heart. The tittles on high juice are just the start of circles. The tittles on Pinot Grigio are more fully formed. The tittle on veggie burgers is an ambitious galaxy of a swirl.

Berries & Chicken Pie

Written on a torn off rectangle from an insurance company letter, there is some small print on the reverse.

I am not sure what the horizontal line represents here. It is not likely to be different shops or days.

Lighter Long

A4 Lined, spiral bound, folded. Black biro.

A short list of items, maybe somebody planning a barbecue for Saturday. They need fire lighters and ‘lighter long. Maybe this is long matches?

Speculating, they needs rolls for sausages and burgers and maybe a salad to go with it.

Cake for afterwards.
