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 – Thoughts So Far

Posted by on: Friday, Nov. 27th 2015 12:15 AM

We have had a few conversations in the Cupboard recently about I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here so I thought I would do a little review about what has been happening. Let’s start with to Lady C or not to Lady C – because that is definitely the question! I have been both appalled and it fits about this so-called “Lady”‘s behaviour. Using a knife and fork to eat testicles and bugs in the first bush tucker trial was bordering on genius and I am sure many people around the country were warming to her despite her airs and graces. However, her absolutely shocking name calling and “saying it as it is” attitude has definitely rubbed many camp mates up the wrong way, and it seems many of the viewers too. Her nasty words to Brian made for jaw-dropping but hilarious TV. She truly is on another planet if she thinks you can speak to people that way without any comeback, but I do like the way she is intimidated by no-one and will not allow Tony or Duncan to belittle her in any way.

Speaking of Tony and Duncan, thanks to their many disagreements with Lady C, they are coming across as pompous, sexist old fools and certainly not the alpha males they’d think they are. Tony particularly seems very patronising. I cannot believe that grown men would stoop to shouting “lalalalala” over anyone whilst they were speaking even if it was the loud mouth Lady herself. Chris and Kieron, in their chivalrous (if misguided) protection of the scathing socialite, have come across as gentlemanly and thoughtful men. I know if I had sons I would like them to behave like these boys rather than Tone and Dunc. The others chaps on the camp – Brian and George are also not coming across all that well in my humble view. Brian is definitely a diva and used to controlling any situation and I think sympathies for him are fast waning with the viewing public, he certainly likes his point to be heard. George, as sweet as he is, is really rather pointless apart from eye candy for younger viewers at the moment. Maybe he will come into his own soon.

For me, the winners of the show so far have been the fantastic Ferne and the vivacious Vicky. Will nothing dampen these girls spirits? They have attacked every challenge with gusto, have pretty much stayed out of the major arguments and have come across as strong, capable and likeable women. I was expecting moans of broken nails and lack of creature comforts, but nothing could be further from the truth. Girl power indeed. The rest of the ladies on camp (apart from Lady C of course) are also having a pretty good show. Susannah has found her niche as camp mum and is relishing looking after everyone. She is very much the head girl character and you can imagine her shouting “jolly hockey sticks” at any given time. Yvette is another one who has got on with it and seems to be giving it all a good go. She may, however, have lost some brownie points Wednesday with her fish wife-like screaming at Lady C, even though I think we all would have done the same, it did lower her to the boys childish arguments level. Jorgie, is a little girlie for my tastes, but like Ferne and Vickie, has cracked on with all tasks handed out and fared well for someone who looks like she lives in sparkle world.

You have recently read my dislike of Caroline Flack as a presenter on X Factor – so I had to mention what an absolute contrast the brilliant Ant & Dec make. Their timing is impeccable, they are funny and quick witted and draw you into the show. It’s no wonder they have won so many awards, I laugh every time I watch them on this show.

So Cubbiers who are your favourites? Do you love a little bit of Lady C or are you going ding dong for Duncan? Who do you think could win? I love Chris Eubank and I love Vicky Pattison, both are showing strength and integrity. Of course, this will all probably change over the next few days, especially if they bring out a few spiders, after all everyone has a breaking point. I wonder who will be next to self-combust, I can’t wait to find out – see you in the Cupboard guys.
