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…..

A Weekend At Nickie’s

Posted by on: Monday, Nov. 23rd 2015 11:42 PM

When I set off Saturday lunchtime to stay at Nickie and Austen’s house for the weekend I was looking forward to a lovely weekend but, of course, wasn’t expecting the wonderful surprises Nickie and the Cubbiers had planned for me. My girls were very much looking forward to meeting Nickie after hearing so much about her and also looking forward to trying the Come Dine With Me menu later on.

We arrived about 2 pm after a lovely drive up in the sunshine which was when Nickie broke it to me that Christmas was coming a little early for me. As you can see from the photos I was absolutely blown away by the gifts I received and would like to thank each and every one of you. I love our time together in the Tidy Cupboard and to be treated to such lovely presents from you guys, and from Nickie & David was really amazing. Thank you! My girls really enjoyed the moment as well, they thought the hot pink toilet roll hilarious, and found it all very exciting.

We all took a walk down on the beach after with Nickie’s dogs (who are also lovely) and, thanks to the weather, the views from Seaton beach were amazing. The walk built up our appetites and we all sat down to the beautifully laid out dining table to enjoy the Come Dine With Me feast that Nickie had prepared. You will see for yourselves on 3rd December (5 pm) what the menu consisted of but all I can say is it was absolutely delicious and me and both my girls rated it 10 out of 10 (well Isabelle said 9.9/10 at first but was promptly told off by her younger sister who reminded her you have to have whole numbers).

The wine flowed, as did the conversation, and we all had a great giggle playing on Google translate led by Nickie’s lovely daughter Emily. Nickie and I sat down to shortened version of the X Factor and we agreed that the X Factor blog will be no more – so watch this space for a new blog later on in the week. A few drinks and movies (and hide and seek for the girls) rounded out what was a perfect evening.

The next morning saw Nickie and Austen treating me and the girls to a slap up fried breakfast at the local garden centre and we even found time to look at some of the Christmas decorations and novelties on sale. All too soon it was time for us to pack up my pressie’s and drive back to Cornwall. So thank you, Nickie, Austen and Emily for such a lovely weekend, thank you Tidy Bingo for my TV which we are already fighting over, and thank you “Cubbiers” for my Amazon Firestick. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for Bingopoly.
