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…..

The XFactor Is Back

Posted by on: Friday, Sep. 4th 2015 12:15 AM

The weekend just gone saw the return of the XFactor so the excitement can now start building for our Tidy Factor competition. What a weekend it was. We saw some fantastic final 12 contenders and also some terribly deluded wannabes but the top moment for me was Simon Cowell reduced to tears and rendered speechless. It was one of those magical TV moments that won’t be forgotten for a very long time. My heart went out to Simon who was left this way as, it’s assumed, the song made him think of his Mum who had recently passed away. I teared up as I know a few of you did as well and I hope Josh Daniels carries on singing that beautifully and makes it to the final 12. What about the rest of the weekend though – these are a few of my picks and a few of the Oh My God No’s.


My absolute favourites from the groups were the First Kings – I expected a clichéd boy band but what we got was simply amazing. They had their own intro video, girl dancers and were so professional. It was great to see so much effort put into an audition. I also like the girl band Fourth Power, my first words were “Wow”, they were ultra slick and again incredibly well prepared. My youngest, Jessie, loved them and so did I until I found out the they are serial talent show contenders, have already won 3 TV talent shows and were asked to audition. It makes you wonder why they have not hit the big time already.

We had some fantastic female singers show up, I particularly liked Louisa with her amazing rendition of “Who’s Lovin’ You?”, she sang her socks off and looked so natural and original. We also liked Jennifer, who gave me goose bumps with her version of “Praise You” and Lauren who sang “Somebody Else’s Guy”, she had a lovely personality and my Jessie said she would like to be her friend. High praise indeed.

I thought I would give Seann Miley Moore a paragraph to himself. When he walked on with his mesh bodysuit, PVC pencil skirt, feather cape and platform boots, carrying a ball and chain I thought “here we go”. How wrong was I – he belted out an outstanding version of Freddie Mercurys “The Show Must Go On” and brought the house down. I am sure he will make it the final 12 and be the controversial character of the show. Love him or hate though, that boy can sing.


So what about the ones that didn’t make it through. The Saturday show kicked off with the wonderful “Techno” Susan and her appalling attempt at “No Limits” – we were in fits of laughter, bless her. I do wonder if some of these people come on for a dare? You couldn’t help feel sorry for Olly Murs’ buddy Jon after he showed a total LACK of X Factor during his audition. He was obviously devastated and embarrassed following his rejection. It did show that despite having the contacts, the experience, and the looks, if you haven’t got “IT” you just won’t make it.

So what did you guys think, do you have an early favourite already that you are hoping you get allocated in the Tidy Factor? Did any acts make you cringe or collapse in giggles? Will the Tidyers be able to predict the winner before the final 12 is even announced? I think we can.
