It is the weekend of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum Jubilee in the U.K. (June 2022). It is a glorious warm weekend. The Queen has not been feeling too well but took the trouble to make a couple of very welcome appearances to the cheering crowds.
The Friday mentioned on the list is the 2nd June 2022. This person is celebrating by buying:
For other days they need, milk, mushrooms, two types of chocolate with numbers, shortbread and something called ‘gold lustre spray’. I presume gold lustre spray is this, used for add edible gold for cake decorations and other edible delights.
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:
Three cucumbers! Nobody buys three cucumbers! Maybe this hard working mum is also catering for the local cricket club and making sandwiches for the home and away teams. That may explain why 3 loaves of bread and 9 bottles of squash are required. Actually the cricket season has finished here so there must be something else going on.
Lots of fruit and veg which is good to see but also lots of kiddie friendly meat products, chicken fingers, hot dog sausages, burgers and of course who could ignore the turkey jetti:
