Matches and Soda Crystals

A donation to the shopping list archive from Oxfordshire in the UK. This list is likely from an older person.

Clues:

  • Sherry
  • Tinned food
  • Evaporated milk

This person owns a cat, has use for matches (open fire, smoker, gas hob?) and sometimes suffers from indigestion. Coffee was an after thought on the list and written in a different pen.

Soda crystals are used for cleaning.

Biscuits and Cookies

A shopping list written on what looks like an upside down page taken from a diary. Red biro.

The author has written biscuits and cookies. I presume the differentiation is the biscuits are pre-packaged hard types and the cookies are the larger softer doughy variety.

Also on the menu are milk, cream and cough mixture.
