Tidy Cupboard – Changes Afoot

Posted by on: Friday, Jul. 1st 2016 12:36 AM

As you will all know, for some time now we have seen a drop in the number of players in the Tidy Cupboard. This has continued for a while now and David and I have made a decision to change things around a little.

Rather than lose the room completely, something we don’t want to do, we’re going to try and revive it. How we plan to do that may sound a little odd but there is a method in our madness. However, it does mean that from 1st August 2016 the Cupboard is only to be open on the 1st Tuesday of every month.

Loyalty Rewarded At Tidy Bingo

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 2:47 PM

As regulars at Tidy Bingo will know, the network offers a loyalty reward scheme that sees you earn extra bonuses, cash back etc. as you rise through the ranks. As a little something extra, we’re going to introduce a form of loyalty scheme into the Tidy Cupboard too.

As you will have noticed, player numbers have been dropping of late in the Cupboard and as such, it doesn’t remain viable to keep giving away as many loyalty points as we have been whilst player numbers diminish.

Tidy Bingo Up For Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 1:23 PM

The Which Bingo Award shortlist has been announced today and once again Tidy Bingo has received a nomination. This year there isn’t a Best Boutique Bingo Site, the category we usually find ourselves in. For 2016, we have been nominated as Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site and for the first time since we launched, we’re going to put a bit of effort into winning.

It’s not that we don’t want to win, of course it isn’t, but we are always competing with brands we have bigger budgets and more players so it often feels like we are a non-starter. This year however, only five of the brands under the Jumpman Gaming hat have been nominated so our odds of winning are slightly better!

Catchphrase Competition – March 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Feb. 25th 2016 1:29 PM

Can you believe it’s nearly March already? It seems like only yesterday that we were running Christmas competitions and rummaging in Santa’s Sack! Anyway, as the year rolls on, it’s time for another Catchphrase competition and your chance to win a selection of Tidy branded goods, maybe some Help For Heroes bits and bobs and even some bonus funds!

This time we’re going to do things a little differently (not much) and will be sending the competition by internal mail, external mail and posting on Facebook. We’re hoping this gets more people involved and who knows, with enough entries – we might even throw in a few extra prizes!

Ham And Egg Cups

Posted by on: Sunday, Jan. 24th 2016 5:36 PM

As some of you may know, I’m currently with Slimming World trying to shed a few stone. If you’ve never done this diet before then it’s worth knowing that foods are divided into categories and it is actually the only diet that I have done that I have found really easy to stick to. The only thing that I am not completely comfortable with is the weekly meetings, and whilst I know many get a lot from the meetings – they don’t really do it for me. If any of you guys want to slim along with me – feel free. I lost 6.5lbs in my first week….

That said, I have paid for 10 sessions, so I will do those and then probably just continue alone at home. Anyway, I digress, the reason for this blog post was to share one of the recipes that I made today, one that I really enjoyed and takes hardly any time to make. It’s a free food, so you can eat as many of these as you want.

Free Jackpot Game – The Outcome

Posted by on: Saturday, Jan. 23rd 2016 9:50 PM

I thought that I’d sit in the room and watch our biggest every free game take place tonight, the big £1000 jackpot. I wanted to see who were winners, and of course, report the outcome to all the Tidy Bingo players who were otherwise engaged.

In total there were a whopping 4,437 when the game got underway and I was on tenterhooks (as I am sure the players in the room were too).

Thank You, Thank You And Again, Thank You

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 7:38 PM

There are many things that I love about Tidy and for those of you that know me, you’ll know that it has always been a dream of mine to run my own bingo site. From player, to host, from host to writer and then writer to site owner, it took me ten years to get here but I did.

There have been ups and downs, as our blog readers know, but one of the biggest ups happened this week. Quietly beavering away in my office, the doorbell rings with a delivery…..

10 Things You May Not Know About Blondie

Posted by on: Friday, May. 1st 2015 7:33 AM

Many of you have known me for quite a few years now as for the past 10 years I’ve been hanging around on one bingo site or another making myself known and bringing with me my unique style of Blondie banter. Some of you have only met me recently through Tidy Bingo and hopefully my typonese hasn’t put you off too much so far.

But what weird and wonderful facts about me did I think you may not know. Some may surprise you, some may make you laugh but one things for sure they are all me!

1. This one may just come as a real surprise – and I’m sorry to shatter any illusions but I am not a true blonde. It’s from a bottle. There it’s out there now – I feel cleansed of all deception.

2. I starred in a TV ad for Think Bingo, a site I used to work for. Possibly the strangest yet most terrifying experience of my life but if you haven’t seen it, it is sure to make you chuckle. If you want a sneaky peak you can watch it at later in this piece.

3. This wasn’t my only taste of TV stardom however. At the tender age of eight I had a singing part in the BBC’s Rolf Harris Show, dressed as a Victorian villager. The band playing on the show were Brotherhood of Man and one of the singers winked at me – I was ecstatic.

4. I met David Baddiel after he performed his Newman & Baddiel show (with Rob Newman) in a Plymouth nightclub. As I was already with someone I set him up with my friend Victoria. I look back at that boyfriend now and think why?

5. I have met Tom Jones. My friend managed to get free tickets to his show when he came to Plymouth. During the last song his manager pulled us from the crowd and took us to his tour bus. He ran off stage onto the bus (all sweaty and hyped) and all I could ask him about was what was Prince like. Despite this he did invite us to travel to Bournemouth with them (all expenses paid) but as we were only 21 and 18 we declined. He did kindly autograph a napkin for me though.

6. I have completed one full marathon and three half marathons on roller skates and lived.

7. Still on the skating theme. I used to play roller hockey and was England Ladies junior captain when I was 18 and played against other national sides in Germany.

8. I haven’t always worked in the gaming industry. Before I had my children I worked in banking and was a Bank Manager by the time I left.

9. During my stint for an American sales bank, I won an all expenses paid holiday to Miami and the Bahamas. That was quite nice.

10. Number 10 I think a few of you will know – for all the things I’ve done and seen the best two things ever to happen to me are my beautiful daughters. Crazy, cool kids who make me the person I am today.

Well that’s my 10 – how many did you know and were any a surprise? I’d love to know more about you guys too so please sign your name on the dotted line and comment below. It would be great to keep the ball rolling. See you in the Cupboard soon!
