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…..

X Factor Auditions – Weekend Three

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

This weekend saw the 3rd bunch of X Factor auditions and for me they were much better than weekend two. However, viewing figures have been very low compared to previous years and with even Strictly Come Dancing on a break this weekend the ratings are still nearly a million down on last year. Word on the street is that Simon Cowell has been given two weeks to improve things or the show faces the axe. Apparently Caroline Flack has been sent to a weeks detox camp in Portugal, Cheryl Fernadez-Versini has been told to sexy up her outfits and Mr Fluttery Eyes, Nick Grimshaw has been made to tone down his big hair (maybe he should lay off the mascara too). Personally, I don’t think the judges and presenters changing their image will help much – the show so far has been too predictable and staged and that I think is the real problem. Bring back Louis Walsh I say!

Saturday started with the fabulous Davide Papasidero who turned up with enormous white wings. Yes it was gimmicky but his voice was angelic and he made it through, whether he will be able to fly without those wings though is debatable. We saw the very rude “Rock and Rose2 who were far too cool for school and refused to smile or reply to questions from the judges. They were fantastic to listen too but I would never vote for them. We also saw the battle of the gospel choirs with 2 acts hailing from the London Community Gospel Choir. The girl group, the Silvertones, fluffed their 1st song and, surprise surprise, were asked to sing again. Amazingly they managed to put together another piece (and new outfits) within the afternoon. Of course it was brilliant and they were put through but once more the show let itself down as once again it all seemed set up. The male choir, BEKLYN, however, were incredible. Soulful, cool and amazingly tuneful they made me smile and gave me goose bumps. They are in my pick for the final 12 for sure.

The rest of the Saturday show was dominated by the girls. We saw Jade McGuire, who used be in the band POP many years ago, get the Grimmy eyelash flutter ( a sure sign of making it to boot camp) as she wowed the audience with her version of Tina Arena’s Chains. There are rumours her baby daddy is a convicted criminal with gangland links – whether this will have any effect on the public vote is yet to be seen. The star of Saturdays show for me was the gorgeous Monica Michael, who failed to reach the final 12 last year thanks to Cheryl. She was breath taking with her version of Christina Aguileras Impossible and is another Blondie pick for the final 12.

Sunday saw another show full of girl power with the likes of 2nd time round auditionee Havva Rebke, and the beautiful Katie Coleman flying through to boot camp. We had a brilliant jaw on the floor moment, and it came for all the wrong reasons, when the deluded and totally bonkers Mary O’Sullivan took the stage. She looked like a kindly music teacher, sang like a drowning cat and was incredibly rude to the judges, insisting she was a wonderful singer. Mad as a bucket of frogs.

Despite the greatness of the girls the boys didn’t do too badly Sunday – we had Brodie Kelly, who was incredibly easy on the eye and also very easy on the ear singing Hey Delilah by the Plain White Ts. We had the 3 lad combo The Sunday Club who sounded really cool and were very good looking, which certainly doesn’t harm their chances either. The ever flirty Rita Ora was all over the boys acts and couldn’t contain herself when Joe Waller hit the stage, another good looking guy with a guitar – the boys group is finally looking up.

We had 2 show stealers Sunday. First was the lovely Neneth Lyons, who meekly tiptoed onto the stage and was a bag of nerves. A tiny lady with a massive voice, she was fantastic. Last act of the evening was Kiera Weathers, a stunning 18 year old with a voice as good as Beyonces. I loved her and loved her voice – she had final 12 written all over her.

We had some fantastic acts this weekend and I definitely think a few of these will be in our Tidy Factor Sweepstake. The competition seems to have finally started and I am totally hooked.
