A5 Lined note paper with blue biro. Consistent use of the grocer’s apostrophe.
A grocer’s apostrophe is a spelling mistake caused by placing an apostrophe before the s of a plural word. In English, the plural form of a word is most commonly shown by adding an s to the end (e.g., “cats,” “bananas,” “pictures”). Don’t add your own apostrophe!

The owner of this list does not look to be much of a cooking type person. They are going to buy meals for Saturday and Sunday, and then a further 4 meals after that. There are not many cooking ingredients listed.
As well as getting their meals from M&S (Marks and Spencer), they are going to pop into Robert Dyas for some ‘tool cleaner’. I wonder what that is.

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”. You can buy them here:
A simple list appropriate for the time of year when it is the school Summer holiday but the Autumn term comes inevitably closer.
I would suggest that the owner of this list intended to visit one of the larger super markets which sells clothes, household goods and food. Alternatively this was a list for a visit to ‘town’ where multiple shops were to be visited. I don’t see many of those lists.
Whoever the owner is, she has a sweet tooth and so do her friends. The owner is female.
Interesting curve on the top of the capitalised letter F. Normally this is more of a 90 degree angle.
