Can You Buy The Twelve Days of Christmas Carol?

I thought I would try something a little different, is it possible to buy the Twelve Days of Christmas? We all know the Carol, and every year I know it gets stuck in my head repeatedly.  But with a little help from Amazon you can re-create the Twelve Days of Christmas Carol.  A little bit of imagination is required for some of the verses, but here is my take of buying the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Product Review: Wakelet

So, what is Wakelet? well Wakelet is a revolutionary link list building website that can be used for many different reasons.  When a user builds a link list it is called a Wake.  The idea and concept are simple, copy any website URL and paste or type it into Wakelet to create a Wake, this Wake can then be shared on Social Media or by sending onto someone either by email or SMS, the shared link is also shortened (A bit like a Bitly Link).

Imagine creating a Christmas Wishlist of many different presents, from many different websites for every member of your family and being able to send and share this list with others or keeping it for yourself to be organised.

You can create all different kinds of Wakes, it’s like having your very own personal scrapbook that you can share.

Not only can you save website URL’s, but you can also create Wakes for videos, podcasts, images, articles and many more!

You can also search and see other people’s Wakes and like, follow and share their Wakes.

The best bit is Wakelet is free and the developers guarantee it always will be free.  No subscriptions or paywalls.

Wakelet is available on Desktop and is also mobile friendly with apps for both iOS and Android.

Using Wakelet.

Firstly go to https://wakelet.com and start adding links, you don’t need an account but if you want to be able to personalise your Wakes you will need to sign up, the signing up process is a simple one step authentication process and as I have already mentioned before, it is complete free.  You can choose to create an account with your email and password or jump straight to it with your Facebook or Google account.

When you log into Wakelet you are greeted with the below page where you can change your image profile, change your displayed name, and add a bio or profile description.

 

After you have edited your profile the next step is to start creating your very own Wakes, so click create a Wake.  You will then see the next page.

Fill in the required fields and start pasting in your URL’s.  I have filled in some to give you an example.

When you have finished creating your Wake you can keep it private but if you want to share your work you will need to set the privacy to unlisted, this will then give you a sharable link to post, it is now time to share your creation with whoever you want, you can also set your list to go public and share your creation with the world!

Ready to share? then press share and you will see the below share page.

 

All the links on your Wake are clickable and take you straight to the URL address that you inputted.

And that is pretty much it, you are using Wakelet and creating Wakes for yourself, family, or friends.

Conclusion.

I think the Wakelet is clear, very easy to use and navigate, it is a great everyday tool that has many uses.  The idea behind Wakelet is fantastic and highly recommend Wakelet.  I know for certain I will be using Wakelet myself this Christmas, with two daughters and presents from different retailers I’m going find Wakelet very useful indeed.

Try Wakelet now.

If you found this article useful please do share and comment down below how you found Wakelet for yourself.  Don’t forget you can contact me here.

Product Review: Croydex push-fit shower hose.

Croydex Shower Hose

The Croydex Freeway Plus shower head is a simple concept.  Simply attach to a twin tap bath or basin and hey presto you’re showering.

The rubberised push on adapters have a small 1cm diameter hole that allows you to securely push the adapters onto your tap.  For added security the Croydex Freeway Plus also comes with Velcro straps to stop the adapters from slipping off when in use.

The shower head has a push down trigger that allows the user to stop the water flow and then start it again.

Using the Croydex Freeway Plus shower hose.

I found the hose although generous in 120cm in length to be a very hard rubber compound, rendering it almost non-flexible and rigid.

The shower head also was supposed to stop the water flow when the trigger was not depressed, but I found although I was not pressing the trigger, water continued to dribble out, and when the trigger was pressed, water flow was not of an adequate pressure.  I have a cold-water storage tank (In loft) and hot water cylinder (Next room airing cupboard) fed system using 22mm copper pipes directly onto my bath taps with only about a 30cm rise to the taps, so i though this would be enough pressure to achieve an adequate water flow.

I think some of the issue with water flow is the design of the shower hose itself, the middle part features a “Y” piece of plastic that is supposed to allow water to flow to the main hose, but this fitting is restricting the water flow, also it seems to be of a small diameter, again this could explain why not enough water is passing through.

Y Piece

The shower heads trigger button is quite hard to press down and will no doubt hurt your hand for long periods of use.

Conclusion

Overall there are better products on the market.  The only advantage of the Croydex Freeway Plus is the rubber push-on tap adapters, they were the only adapters that I could find that had such a small diameter I needed for my 2cm headed taps.

I removed the rubber push-on adapters and used them on a generic cheap shower hose that you can buy in DIY stores.  It works an absolute treat.

You can buy the Croydex Freeway Plus Shower Hose here.

The first frost of the year!

So today it has happened, winter has set in.  I knew it was going to happen, but now it is real.

Whilst on the school run this morning there were many kids wearing funny woolly hats and that got me thinking.  Can adults wear funny woolly hats too?.  I done a quick search and it turns out there are many novelty woolly hats out there.  Below i have selected a few of my favourites.  I hope you like them too.
