Choc Twist

Choc Twist

Donated by a generous benefactor, this list has 11 items excluding mysterious line 8 which has been crossed out.  I believe it may say ‘ice cre’ but I may be mistaken.

I would suggest the list was written in three sections at different times.  Down to Evian is all capitalised, then comes the crossed off item in what looks to be lower case and then there is the third contribution in different pen.

This list is very Summery, you will not see these items listed in a few months time (unless you are in the southern hemisphere).

Mum, I Snapped Your Hairbrush

Here’s a good one.  The front of the list is great, strange use of ‘z’ for plurals and a few unknowns but it is the back of the list that stands out – scroll down!


How nice.  I hope Mum was happy with the replacement and the kind note.

Compartments

Now, this is really interesting, not so much for the items but in the way they are presented. Here the list has be segmented into little boxes with what looks like similar items in each box. Does this represent a map of the supermarket aisles or is this how the food is stored at home?  Fridge items in one box, household in another etc.

Woo.

Beanie Fish

Wow, where to begin?  There is so much to say here.  Please use the comments section freely to explain what this is all about.

Firstly, what are the numbers 124 and 485 relating to?

Is it Liah who provided £20, £40, £20 for Kentucky Fried Chicken?  Is it actually Leah or have I misread this?

What are ‘true you test strips’?

Whisky + American

This shopping list owner likes detail, 2 bananas precisely, “Kellogg’s”cereal rather than just cereal, “Ryvita Rye Crispbreads” when Ryvita would have sufficed.  In fact I think this list was written for somebody else to do the shopping, the numbers and brands are instructions.

 Does whisky and American mean whisky and whiskey?

Tomatoes, Mediterranean vegetables x 1, strawberries, apples, bananas x 2, salmon x 1, sweet potatoes, milk, small red milk, bleach, rinse aid, kitchen rolls, bread, lime cordial, still water, Kellogg’s fruit and fibre (purple pack), Ryvita rye crispbreads, whisky + American.
