Behind the Altar in a Church

This list was very kindly contributed by Peter BC.

Now this is beyond the banalities of the regular supermarket trolley.  This list was found in a church!

Peter says he was moving the altar in a small church in Lincolnshire last Sunday when he found this shopping list.

What can we say:

Written on the back of an envelope which originally came from Mole Country Stores in Devon:

Mole Valley Farmers Ltd
Moorland House
Station Road
South Molton
Devon
EX36 3BH

The list was written in red pen – maybe a teacher?

The handwriting is neat and formal, probably that of an older person. The slight shakiness might reinforce this point of view.  Maybe a retired teacher.

Listed are:

Marmite, Scotch Eggs, Coleslaw and Cooked Meat.

This are all tea time or picnic ingredients.

Thank you so much to Peter!

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.

Sweet pot, peppers, coffee, cornflakes, liver, kidneys, chicken breasts, mince, morrison’s blades, soap, spray * bath, ariel colour, oust, sponges, grapes fruit, milk | cream, sour cream, coleslaw, taramasalata?, gruyere cheese, ham, choc lollies, scotch, gin, tonic.
