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!

Someone is about to do some seasonal cleaning as these are mainly cleaning items: Mr Muscle sink unblocker, Viakal limescale (remover), soap powder, Flash bathroom cleaner, muffins, butter, milk 2pt (2 pint size), toilet rolls, kitchen rolls.
Fairy liquid, wipes, kitchen roll.

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.
Butter (Pete)(Me), toothpaste, sugar, tea, kitchen roll, juice, milk, fish x 2, cabbo, lettuce, spring onions.

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.
