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 – The Final 12

Posted by on: Tuesday, Oct. 27th 2015 12:15 AM

This weekend we saw the judges houses competitions and, for the first time, the final 12 for X Factor announced live on TV. Despite Caroline Flacks dreadful autocue skills and her habit of talking over Olly Murs’ lines the shows were packed with drama and exciting to watch. Most of the favourites got through but there were a couple of surprises to keep things controversial.

First to go were Cheryl and the groups. There was some strong competition in this set of acts and it was no surprise that they all performed really well. What was surprising was the fact Cheryl had changed every single bands name? I can understand that there may have been a band called Alien before but BEKLN – surely not. We saw the newly named 4th Impact and Alien Uncovered fly through with fantastic performances for Cheryl and her right hand at the, Jess Glynne. There was no doubt both of these groups deserved their place in the final 12 but Cheryls 3rd choice certainly raised a few eyebrows. All the way through the shows we have seen BEKLYN and Silvertones battling it off (they share a sister and a brother between them) so the money was on one of them taking the 3rd spot. Both sang fantastically and you couldn’t pick between them. So Cheryl chose not too. Instead she put through the bouncy and energetic Reggie n Bollie who will definitely bring plenty of smiles to the proceedings.

Simon was next with the Overs. It was no surprise that he picked his own favourite, the “Tina Turner Tribute Act”,  Bupsi to go through, but sadly he left out the amazing Jennifer Phillips, who I have loved from day one. Anton Stephans rightly won his place and was typically gushing in his gratitude. Simon listened to the audience for his 3rd pick, and Max Stone made it. This guy has a massive viewer following and could be the dark horse of the show now.

Next up was Mr Eyelashes and the Boys. Plenty of boos rang around the arena when Grimmy announced Mason Noise had replaced Tom Bleasby and the boos continued when he was picked for the Boys final 3. The Noise has a little work to do if he wants to get any votes in live shows methinks. Next through was Che Chesterton, who sang his socks off once again and wowed Eyelashes and Mark Ronson with an awesome vocal. Last spot went to one of my favourites, the glorious, gorgeous Seann Miley Moore. He gives me goosebumps every time he sings and whilst I know he won’t be everyones cup of tea I can’t help but love him.

That left the category to beat – Rita’s girls. 6 amazing ladies were in the judges house sing off and this had to be the hardest bunch to pick from. They all sang their hearts out and each gave their best. You cannot fault Rita’s choices as any 3 from this group would have been fantastic. In the end, Monica Michael failed to grab a final 3 place despite bringing tears to my (and I bet many others) eyes with a beautiful song she wrote about her brother who drowned last year. There is talk that she may be brought back in on a wild card place (along with Jennifers Phillips) so maybe we haven’t seen the last of this talented lady yet. Louisa Johnson was magnificent when she sang and was yet again the best of the bunch. I am so glad she got through despite just being 17. The other 2 places went to Lauren Murray and Kiera Weathers, both well deserved.

So who is your favourite? And will you be lucky enough to be allocated them in our Tidy Factor sweepstake? Cross your fingers guys and watch this space.
