Tittles – The Dots on Letters i and j

Some people, instead of using a simple dot above the Latin letters i and j, use full blown circles. The owner of this list was one of those people.

Did you know, this tiny, little superscript dot has a name? It is called a tittle.

The tittle on milk is nearly a heart. The tittles on high juice are just the start of circles. The tittles on Pinot Grigio are more fully formed. The tittle on veggie burgers is an ambitious galaxy of a swirl.

Spa Water

A small piece of paper, torn on 3 sides. Maybe belonging to an older hand.

Unusual to see a particular brand of water required.

What is W.U.L? Ah – washing up liquid 🙂

I suppose Bis is biscuits. Ch Burgers are chicken. Marg is margarine.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

It is the weekend of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum Jubilee in the U.K.

The Friday mentioned on the list is the 2nd June 2022. This person is celebrating by buying:

  • Lunch
  • Nibbles
  • Drinks
  • Water

For other days they need, milk, mushrooms, two types of chocolate with numbers, shortbread and something called ‘gold lustri spray’.

Custard Pots II

Found with its counterpart ‘custard pots’ at Morrisons in Bridport, U.K., this list is in the same hand, on the back of a betting slip but intertwined with a Waitrose receipt for items listed.

Some items are duplicated from the first list but also included are two tins of baked beans, Kellogg’s Fruit and Fibre and some ‘ready baked’ potatoes.

Cereal Offender

A family of four with a toddler and a cat demand a lot of shopping.

This list looks to be shopping for a week with main meals consisting of sausages, fish cakes, mince and chicken served with sweet corn and chips and potato waffles.

Desserts include muffins, crumpets, cakes, yoghurts, custard and cereal bars.

Snacks encompass a number of types of crisps together with chocolates, Jaffa cakes, raisins and Baby Bels.

Breakfast will be well catered for with a number of types of cereal. These are Krave (HN), cinnamon, HN Clusters and something abbreviated to BG. I am not sure what BG is but I am guessing the HN stands for Honey Nut. This is quite an array of sweet choices.

Location and date found not recorded.

Big Milk, Small Milk, More Meat

A crossed off list shows somebody who takes a pen to the super market. The paper looks to be ripped from another list.

This shopper was looking for two sizes of milk, a Twix, 4 + baguette, fruit, paper cups, W U bowl, c-cumber, BBQ bread and ‘more meat’.

This looks like a BBQ shopping list? It is the right time of year. And what is the little picture in the corner? Some kind of tent?

Up on a cliff top

I found this list by a bench high up on a cliff on the Dorset coast.

There was a scrap of folded paper laying on the ground which I opened up and low and behold it was a shopping list.

It is a rather short shopping list. Maybe breakfast essentials for some holiday makers in the area.

Blue biro, roughly torn and folded into four.
