I remember these threads smile

A quick mid week top up I suspect . No loo roll so not a big shop smile

No naice ham 😃

Mamabear1475 Wed 25-Apr-18 19:47:20

No fruit though

Oooh I love a shopping list and it's been a long time since I've seen a thread about them. I still grab them whenever I spot them in the cart. What is Blue milk? Sounds unappetizing.

Paper. What sort of paper? We'll never know.

Blue milk is blue top milk full fat.
I like jackets pots

@mrselizabethdarcy I always add "naice ham" to my lists. I figure if a wandering mumsnetter found a list with that on in Texas, they'd be amused grin

@mamabear1475 I should have thought of that. I've never heard it referred to that way, but if we go by the tops red is full fat here and blue is 2%.

I wonder what sort of paper they wanted? News? Toilet?

I'm going to start leaving my lists in trolleys in the vain hope that it gets cited on MN.

StorminaBcup Wed 25-Apr-18 19:53:44

I always check the trolley for a list but I haven’t found one yet. I’m hoping I find one in code like one posted a few years ago!

ZX81user Wed 25-Apr-18 19:56:26

no grapes? or have they been eaten before they get to the checkout

derekthe1adyhamster Wed 25-Apr-18 19:59:26

Definitely written for someone who won't be doing the cooking!

Is there a pic? It's 2018, not 1995

My workplace rota's someone to shop every Friday, the lists would read as if someone was shopping for a small family written in 3-5 different people's handwriting.

If it's me who does the shopping I always leave the list as I would love to find a mystery list from someone else!

MrsJonesAndMe Wed 25-Apr-18 20:38:39

Ah, I love a good nose at other people's stuff.

Why point out specifically that the beef is in the fridge. Where else would the beef be?

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Wed 25-Apr-18 21:27:21

I was wondering that, Kittens! Corned beef, maybe - the listwriter wants the stuff from the chiller cabinet, not a tin?

Deffo someone who’s not cooking.

“Keith, I told you to get fucking red onions, I even fucking WROTE it down for you, and you still get white ones because they’re cheaper and you think you know best, you’re not the one fucking cooking every night for your fucking fussy children”

grin

Beef could have been from the fridge, therefore fresh, rather than frozen (freezer) wink

MistyReturns Wed 25-Apr-18 21:42:44

Lidl Rioja is gorgeous!! Well done list writer, but seeing as you were so specific on onion & milk colour I’m bemused as to why you didn’t do the same for said Rioja (the red one is my favourite) grin

I love how they think in colour!
