Some days after we moved in, a Yodel delivery man knocked on our door and presented us with a very large box.
Having not ordered anything we were quite perplexed – however it had clearly come from Nationwide, provider of our shiny new mortgage. What could it be we wondered as we excitedly ripped open the packaging. Everything, was the answer. Everything you could possibly want on your first day of moving in – teabags, sugar, longlife milk, biscuits, even 2 mugs and 2 spoons, juice, scrubbers, Fairy liquid, disinfectant, kitchen roll, loo roll, handwash, bin liners… and the kind of home magazines your mum reads.
So we raise our Nationwide-branded mugs to you, Nationwide. Welcome to our new home.
