Central Reservation

Interesting to see a centre justified list. Items are bunched around a mostly invisible centrally vertical dividing line. Although in some cases, Ham | Chicken are visibly separated with a vertical bar.

A5, lined and spiral bound paper.

Dog and cat owner, smoker?

Doritos are listed as well as tortilla chips. Hmm.

On the back of the list is a date “Wed 22nd, 2:30pm”.

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 ūüôā

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

Lidl, Reading, UK. 2nd June 2022

Banahaha

Torn piece of note paper, turned, with blue biro. I am not sure I can read all of these words. My best guess is:

  • Chocolate almond
  • Salt
  • Peanut
  • Callllorole
  • Cashew x 1
  • Orange juice
  • Banahaha

A lot of nuts, or very few is the lack of plurals is to be considered seriously.

Interestingly, this list has two sides. What are we to make of this?

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.

1 Milk is added twice.  Is this 2 Milks or did the person forgot that by the time they reached item 9 that item 2 was milk?

Other questions include, what is Cat – met?

Also, what is A/M?

This is not a main shop but rather a mid sized top up visit to the supermarket.  There was Scampi, chips and peas on the menu that night for sure.

 

 

 

Split Peas


What are these numbers?  This list was found by Steve and he thinks they could be a running total of the prices.

What else do we know?  This list was taken from a spiral bound notepad which has been cut vertically.  The list was written by more that one person, compare BLACK BAGS with Bananas, not only capitalisation but also a difference in the Bs.

This person is a crosser offer.  They have bought no meat, a vegetarian?  Actually there is some ham near the end.

The addition of the newspaper on the list suggest a weekly newspaper rather than a daily.  This fits as Steve found the list on a Sunday

Milk, choc spread, sweet pots, pots, frozen fruit, fruit, toms, orange juice, newspaper, black bags, bananas, rice, shampoo, sensodyne, shower gel, cheese, ham, split peas, shampoo.

Found by Steve in Sainsbury’s in Tadley.

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’?

Dog ham?

Makeup remover pads, gaviscon, crisps, egg fried rice x 2, chocolate, linguine, prawn crackers, Bombay potatoes, chicken, cereal bars, rolls, bread, white wine, eggs, yoghurts, cold meat, dog ham, orange juice, grated cheese, sausage rolls, chicken, cucumber, bananas, fruit, mushrooms, jackets, ice creams, garlic bread, chair, chocs for Ruth.

Note how Rob gets four of his own yoghurts and Ruth is going to get some chocolates.  12 eggs is rather a lot and what is dog ham?

This is a useful reference on the subject:

Maybe the owner was trying to recreate:
