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:
- Asthma / excavar?
- Breast examination / gals?????
- Discover a vasectomy
- Yesterday – MCF CKS – write up
Southampton Old Lady”
Found in Southampton 15th February 2017
Milk, ibuprofen I presume, carrots, greens, PoP, bread, washing liquid, orange Suces?
I am not sure on this last one, I can’t make out the word but I am sure it will be obvious when somebody points it out.
Thank you again Southampton Old Lady!
Found Tesco Express, Southampton
Kindly found and donated by Southampton Old Lady, this list is kind of normal apart from the Peshwari Nan. This is a sweetened grandma who is the perfect compliment to any spicy Indian meal.
Another classic from Sol – Southampton Old Lady
She says she found this list on a passenger walkway at the Port of Southampton. I wonder if this person worked there and was going to do some grocery shopping on the way home but lost the list?
The list does seem to be heavily beverage focused.
What is wine number 1?
Coke, deodorant, tonight’s dinner, wine #1, beer, orange squash, blackcurrent, bread, ham (freezer?).
This list was very kindly supplied by SouthamptonOldLady who has also provided the insight below.
You can check out her great blog at:
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?
