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!

Reverse Advent

This list is from Livingstone in Scotland where it was used for a reverse advent calendar.

To explain what a reverse advent calendar is:

Firstly you need to grab a basket or box, and every day leading up to Christmas, add something useful to the box.

The idea is that you add 24 items just like an advent calendar.

Then you can donate it to a food bank, a family in need or your church.

A reverse advent calendar is perfect to do as a group too. You can put the box in your classroom, workplace or do it as a larger family group and take turns at adding to it.https://www.muminthemadhouse.com/reverse-advent-calendar/

Please take some time to see if there is a similar scheme running locally to you at this time of the year, or make a cash donation to your local food bank if you can.

Victoria Biscuit Selection

Baby Pot, swede, butter, cherry tom, sweetheart, broc rice, royals x 4 and of course, mange.

Vegetarian menu, two types of potatoes.

This list is written on the reverse of a label. A price label from a supermarket shelf. Did the person find the label at the supermarket and write the list there. Or did they get the label on a previous trip, take it home and write the list? Or maybe, they work at a super market, take these labels home in bulk and use them for general notes and list making.

The label is for this fine product, McVities Victoria Biscuit Selection – “Turn any occasion into a celebration”.

Nice!

W’ U Liquid

Normal list, tea, milk, washing up liquid, salad, fruit, sauce….  but wait a second, what are coatings?

I like the flair on the dot on the i in liquid.  And I like the apostrophe in the abbreviation of washing to ‘w’.

Interesting person.  Good work.

Medical Matters


The following list has been supplied by Southampton Old Lady. My apologies for not publishing sooner. She kindly says:

“Not many lists around at the moment but I found this one for your blog, in a Southampton street. Located between two big hospitals. As training hospitals there are many medics and student medics as my guess that this is from a nurse or training medic.

On one side of the list the shopper is going to five different places

1. Drop off prescriptions

2. Superdrug Pantenne (crossed out) shampoo, good conditioner

3. – Ndoes (Indian name might be collect for or a brand name)

4. Just – Mango!

5. Aldi – ricotta, spinach, mango, pesto, sweet soya

Next it could read Back desk of apt. (apartment)
or it could be Book deck of apt. (appointments) followed by a square.

On the other side of the list is:

  • MH
  • Asthma / excavar?
  • Breast examination / gals?????
  • Discover a vasectomy
  • Yesterday – MCF CKS – write up
  • CTS
  • hyperlip??????
