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.

A5, spiral bound, in pencil.

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.

Compost Bags and Bread Sticks

This could be described as a mixed list.

It looks like it is written on a piece of water colour paper or heavily textured writing paper, itself unusual in the genre.

The items here are not natural bed fellows. Stock, masking tape, compost bags and breadsticks are followed spread, jam and oats.

Further down the list are hairbands and chips, then a horizontal line indicates the point where I can no longer decipher what is written.

The natural thing to do is to place these words into an automatic poem generator.

This is the result:

Where are the misty hair clips?
Travel roughly like warm oats.
All hair clips desire old, big compost bags breadsticks and spread.
Sunny, rainy hair clips calmly pull some cold, cold masking tape.
Endurance, endurance, and courage.

Hmm…

Central Reservation

Interesting to see a centre justified list. Items are bunched around a mostly invisible centrally vertical dividing line. Although in some cases, Ham | Chicken are visibly separated with a vertical bar.

A5, lined and spiral bound paper.

Dog and cat owner, smoker?

Doritos are listed as well as tortilla chips. Hmm.

On the back of the list is a date “Wed 22nd, 2:30pm”.

Mouse Treats

Very nice neat handwriting here, lots of items fitted on a folded A5 spiral bound piece of paper.

Likely a mother of children at school age, with pets. Mouse treats, “kid’s” crisps/snacks, cookie dough, lollies.

Meat captured in a separate area of the list in large parenthesis. Chicken, prawns, muscles, bacon, ribs, sausages.

Orzo pasta suggests a cook in the house.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

It is the weekend of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum Jubilee in the U.K.

The Friday mentioned on the list is the 2nd June 2022. This person is celebrating by buying:

  • Lunch
  • Nibbles
  • Drinks
  • Water

For other days they need, milk, mushrooms, two types of chocolate with numbers, shortbread and something called ‘gold lustri spray’.
