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…..

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2015

Posted by on: Friday, Nov. 13th 2015 12:15 AM

Sundays are going to be super again with the start of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here this weekend. I know quite a few of you are fans so I thought I’d have a little look at who is going to be on the show this year and let you know a few of my favourite bits from contestants past. I must admit I am a little sad the rumours of Karl Pilkington ( An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning Of Life) being on the show proved to be false. I think he would have been hilarious but maybe we will see him in the future. This year’s bunch of “junglers” look set to make it a very interesting and entertaining show and I wonder who will crack first.

The full line up as of today is: Jorgie Porter (Theresa in Hollyoaks), George Shelley (X Factors Union J), Chris Eubank (Boxer), Duncan Bannatyne (Dragon’s Den), Brian Friedman (ex-creative director and choreographer X Factor), Susannah Constantine (What Not To Wear), Kieron Dyer (former England and Newcastle United footballer), Yvette Fielding (ex Blue Peter and Most Haunted presenter), Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet) and Lady Colin Campbell (“famous” for a book about Princess Diana’s affair with James Hewitt).

The rumour mill is, of course, up and running but one of the nicer ones I have heard is Kieron Dyer has gone on the show because his children begged him to do it and he is donating the fee to charity – I wish him well in his jungle experience. I am really looking for to see Chris Eubank in action I think he will definitely rub people up the wrong way. Also Tony Hadley could be an interesting character, I hope I am wrong but I think he may a bit pompous and try to control the group – we will wait and see. On a personal note – my brother Andy likes to wind me up by telling me some of my photos look like Yvette Fielding – I look to my “Cubbiers” to dispel this myth and tell me this is wrong!

Past I’m a Celebrity shows have been great for some of our present day stars. Who can forget Katie Price entering the jungle with most of the nation seeing her as just a brainless glamour girl, I think it’s safe to say she showed everyone her mettle by gamely taking on challenge after challenge and gained a lot of respect from it. Gino D’Acampo was another, at the time, low-key celebrity who went straight to the nation’s heart after his time there – his charm and charisma shining through. My favourite moment outside of all the disgusting, gag making, Bush Tucker Trials was the nutritionist and all-round diva Gillian McKeith’s fake fainting performance in the 2010 show when she realised she had to do her 7th trial. What a silly woman – any sympathy viewers may have had for her having to do the trials disappeared the second she dramatically crumpled to the floor. A classic moment indeed.

The show will certainly make for a good chat in the Cupboard and who do you think will win it? At the moment, I am going for Duncan Bannatyne or Chris Eubank but I am sure mine and everyone’s view will change after Sunday. Let me know your favourites on here or on tonight for our next Mop Bingo night. See you in the Cupboard.
