Lucky Dog

The one thing that is essential, and should be put on the list first, is a sieving spoon. Second priority is some executive food for the dog.  Once everything has been purchased, Hello magazine and a lottery ticket should be bought.

There are a few items here which are unclear.  Any help is appreciated.

Sieving spoon, dog paté, dog mince, cheese, yoghurts, veg all, T bags, lemonade, cereal bars, ?, gress?, tomatoes, potatoes, frozen mixed veg, frozen fish, bread, Hello, lottery.

Dolly Bics

Nice list with the basics.  Some points of interest however, Dolly Bics?  Is Dolly a dog do we think?  These are underlined so important.

Also, is the last line trainers?  Maybe not as these would be a strange purchase at Morrisons.

Eggs, milk, fish, toms, veg, quiche, jacket pot, batter mix, W U Liq, Dolly Bics, Trainers?

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’?

Why would you specify that the butter was for Pete and yourself?

Is this person Australian, abbreviating cabbage to ‘cabbo’? Kitchen roll shortened to kroll. Great shopping list.

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.
