In this sentence "thu" is barely audible to me.

Nor to me. Very difficult to decide which pronoun it was, and I just guessed that there was an a' in there too.

I struggled to make out the thu too.

An odd colloquial phrasing, having "tidying" without "up"...

I've answered this one before, but to me 'tidying' is general, whereas 'tidying up' is specific. As in - you tidy your room, but tidy up your toys. Likewise, in Gaelic you would add the word suas after 'a' sgioblachadh' to make that differentiation. :)
