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”.
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.
This list was very kindly donated by Peter ( Peter who previously found a shopping list behind an altar). Some Christmas items here including a gift and cranberry sauce.
Are the items crossed out ones which were purchased or ones which were not required.
Salsa, doritos, bread, peas, kitchen roll, cranbury, mint sauce, hash browns, mustard, signature fish?, xmas eve gift, scratch card, electric £15.
Found in Aldi in Grantham, Christmas Eve, 24th December 2016
Bread, milk eggs, meat for stew – crossed out, steaks, double cream, blue eggs (trendy tinted ones?), cauliflower or/and broccoli, pointed peppers, a bottle of Merlot wine, 5-6 pots of heather (lovingly doodled).
Perhaps we can guess that this list is for a posh, romantic dinner at home for two, then a bit of gardening at the weekend. The ‘meat for stew’ has been crossed off – so perhaps at the last minute they have been informed that they will be on their own for the weekend and suddenly changed the menu?
