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 Weekend – Second Double Elimination

Posted by on: Tuesday, Nov. 10th 2015 12:15 AM

The theme was reinvention for the contestants this weekend and the jury is out as to how well this was achieved by all of the acts. The judges themselves seemed to be a bit confused about what the theme meant so we saw some very different interpretations. Before I look at those I have to mention Caroline Flack (again). I would love to know who dresses her as her outfits, particularly Sundays, are awful. She continued to talk over Ollie when he was presenting, squinted constantly for her badly delivered lines and her interviewing skills, whether it is the contestants or the acts on the show are cringeworthy.

This week Simon looked plain bored which was rather amusing, Grimmy looked like he had overdone the botox and a bit like a rabbit caught in the showbiz headlights for most of the show. Rita and Cheryl, however, looked fantastic. I am starting to look forward to what they will wear, which hairstyle will be worn and, of course, their fab make up. I still think Cheryl is winning the “fash-off” but Rita did a much better job this weekend so the battle is well and truly on. We also had 2 outside acts on the show. One was last year’s runner-up Fleur East and omg didn’t she blow the roof off the place. I didn’t watch the show last year and was seeing her for the 1st time; I thought she was awesome. We also had CeeLo Green on and umm why was he covered in flowers? It was the weirdest outfit I have ever seen and all I could think was that he must be very hot. Not my cup of tea at all.

Saturday night started with cute little 4th Impact. As always they were fun, cute and sounded amazing but I must admit I liked them better before Cheryl started mentoring them and they were calling their own shots. The now beige and boring Mason Noise followed and thoroughly unimpressed me. At least when he was being arrogant before he had some edge and made things interesting, tonight he was just dull. After that was Simon’s Anton and all I could think about was Wagner from a previous show. They dressed him up all glittery and he performed a tongue in cheek, almost comedy, act. You could tell it wasn’t his thing and the other judges felt the same asking what on earth Simon was thinking of. Anton is much better than that and no way should be dancing around singing a teenage girls song. Keira came next and I knew straight away she would be at the bottom of the pack. A shame because she sparkled in the auditions. Che followed and showed us exactly how it was done. All I remember thinking was “Wow!!!” when he was singing, although I am not quite sure if any reinvention had happened. Closing out the first half of the show was the little superstar Louisa, with a version of Michael Jacksons “Billie Jean”. Of course, she was amazing – is there anything this girl can’t sing.

The glamtastic Seann Miley Moore was up next. I love him to bits but this week there was no reinvention and I thought he was more suited to a West End show perhaps. Monica followed and had been dressed up in a very grown up, overtly sexy way. She looked nothing like the cool edgy girl of the auditions and all you could really see were her bosoms! She looked desperately uncomfortable despite still being able to sing beautifully. I hope we get to see the real Monica again soon or I feel her days are numbered. Max Stone did the same sort of act as last week and reminded me of George Formby, I expected him to break out into “When I’m Cleaning Windows” at any time and I wish he would open his eyes when he sings – you guessed it …. I am not a huge fan. It was an absolute joy to have Reggie and Bolie come onto the stage next. They smashed their version of a 1D song and had everyone up and bopping in the audience. I thought they were absolutely brilliant tonight. Lauren Murray closed the show and was another act which did exactly the same as she had before. I think she is a fantastic singer but to me Louisa beats her hands down.

Sunday revealed it would be another shock double elimination and it was no surprise that Keira received the fewest votes overall. The other 2 in the bottom 3 were a shock. Mason Noise and Seann Miley Moore had to sing off against each other. Mason didn’t sing well, fluffed his lines and showed some of his previous bad attitude when he was singing. Seann followed; it was perfect, emotional and raised goose bumps yet again on my arms. What followed was nigh on farcical. Simon and Cheryl rightly put Seann through as his performance was, and has always been, 50 times better than Mason. We got to Ritas turn and she chose Mason – I mean really???? Nick refused to choose and thanks to Rita we went to deadlock. It was quickly announced that Seann had the lowest amount of votes and that was that. I do not understand why the show seems to want to keep Mason Noise as he is nowhere near as talented as many of the others. So sadly for those who were quite pleased to have been drawn Seann in the Tidy Factor sweepstake Rita kicked you out. The Blondie household was not a happy one after this last night, but even so I am still looking forward to next weeks show, I hope you are too.
