Christmas Shopping List

A Christmas shopping list.

Vibrant pink paper.

Some seasonal Christmas food here. Parsnips, nuts, ingredients for trifle. Even Xmas is listed as an item.

The list is from Morrisons yet some items have been specified to be sourced from Costco, Salmon and Pepps (peppers?).

This person enjoys an abbreviation, mushs = mushrooms, pots = potatoes, rasps = raspberries.

Cheeky Girls

A4 punched and lined paper, folded in half. Vegetarian list which raises a few questions.

Is this person going to buy aloe veras as in multiple plants of that kind or is this something else? Why are they under the section marked green veg (the same could be asked of fruits).

What is defended juice? Could be this https://purearth.co.uk/product/defence-juice-cleanse/

This list has another side to it. On the reverse are names of musical artists. Are these team names, categories, a play list? Further more, do the Cheeky Girls fit into this group?

Choc Dig

White paper, 145mm x 100mm, cut with scissors. Staple torn from upper left indicates that this sheet was once not alone.

This person has a sweet tooth. Items include Choc Dig (what is dig?), custard cream biscuits, cake and ice cream.

After all the sweetness, this shopper was planning the main meal. Diced beef has been crossed out and replaced by chicken thighs, to be served maybe as a stew with vegetables and mashed potato.

At the Station

Found on the ground outside the waiting room at Reading Station.

The list reads:

Peppers

Parsnips?

Onions

Courgettes?

Broccoli

Milk

V. Parmesan

—-

Butter?

The list has been walked on as has the indication of sole prints upon it. The person is buying no meat or carbohydrates. Spelling not perfect.

A top up shop. Likely from a town centre shop rather than a supermarket.

Mum, I Snapped Your Hairbrush

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!


How nice.  I hope Mum was happy with the replacement and the kind note.

Salad, fruit, veg, pots, onions, cereal, rice krispies, cheese, ham, t bags, cake, crisps, choc bars, bread, ???, mayo, ???, tuna tinned?, tinned beanz?, tinned toms, eggs, passatta, cheese sauce, bubble bath, golden syrup, juice, butter, t rolls, k rolls, pasta, kidney beanz, stock pots, plenty of ale?

Maris Piper

She wrote Maris Piper, he was confused or thought she was too pernickety and appended ‘spuds’? Different hand?

What else is happening here? A roast? A pickling session? Making chutney?

 Maris piper spuds, veg, cauliflower cheese, vinegar, smoked streaky bacon, bag sugar, Yorkshires.

I guess this person works for Knight Frank or they are buying or selling a house with them.

Cat owner. What is Nub?

Rice krispies, shreddies, cat food x 2, coffee 37 x 3, veg, yoghurt, lacto free (not sure what), nub, bananas and kiwis, bread.

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.

Three Cucumbers!

img_1975

Three cucumbers!  Nobody buys three cucumbers!  Maybe this hard working mum is also catering for the local cricket club and making sandwiches for the home and away teams.  That may explain why 3 loaves of bread and 9 bottles of squash are required. Actually the cricket season has finished here so there must be something else going on.

Lots of fruit and veg which is good to see but also lots of kiddie friendly meat products, chicken fingers, hot dog sausages, burgers and of course who could ignore the turkey jetti:
