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 Two

Posted by on: Tuesday, Sep. 8th 2015 1:15 PM

Well, we just had another weekend of X Factor auditions so we are a little bit closer to our Tidy Factor competition and I don’t know about you guys but I found these ones a little disappointing. I was more interested in the “make-up off” between Rita and Cheryl than some of the acts. I must admit some of their looks are amazing but blimey, you couldn’t wear them in the street. My girls commented on Cheryl’s “panda eyes” and I was transfixed by Rita’s amazing but very bright lipstick (promoting her Rimmel line maybe?). I can’t wait to see what frocks they wear in the live shows.

My greatest bugbear this weekend though was Nick Grimshaw. I think he is aiming for the most boring judge title this year. I’m also a little fed up of him fluttering his “Bambi” eyes at every single auditionee. The man sends me to sleep – bring back Louis Walsh! Enough of the judges though as per last week I have had a look at who was hot and who was not (in my humble opinion).

Saturday’s show really was a bit of a let down to me. The only act that held my interest for more than one minute were the girl band Alien. Rita said they looked like Spice Girls from Mars and I have to agree with her – they would make a great set of dolls for young girls. That said, I am not sure if they can actually sing or not – we will soon see at boot camp. I found most of the Saturday acts boring and much like what we have seen before, and am already fed up of Simon stopping acts and asking them to sing their 2nd (and of course much better) song – it’s coming across very staged and predictable. The final act Saturday was the oddly names Bupsi. Surprise, surprise Simon asked her to sing another song and to “get nasty” as they thought she had a kind face – when she did I wasn’t that impressed, it was another seen it all before moment and no one wants to see ladies bumping and grinding against Simon more than once.

Sunday evening started the same way but did eventually get better. At first there was a run of pretty awful acts interspersed with a few average ones who made it to the next stage. Why oh why though did they put through “hips don’t lie” hairdresser Joselito Peralta? It was funny for 5 minutes but is he really this year’s Jedward/Wagner? I hope not.


There are also rumours abound that Hannah, the pretty blonde farmer girl, has worked for Simon Cowell before on Britain’s Got Talent and is a trained soprano. I can’t see the public voting for her now, can you?

They did save the best until last this weekend, however, with a fantastic audition from Anton Stephans that closed the show. His voice was wonderful and his personality seemed genuine and very likeable too. He also had a cute little dog so I was bound to love him – he is my top pick for the final 12 this week.


So what did you guys think – who got your vote and who would you have booted before boot camp. What do you think of the auditions so far? Let me know your views as always.
