Description

Life in the modern household has become much more complicated than it was for previous generations. Our roles are increasingly multi-layered, our ambitions further reaching and our expectations completely unreasonable. Juggle a successful and fulfilling career with raising children/pets, servicing the car/bike, maintaining a social life, exercising, cooking a balanced diet, repairing the broken kitchen pipes and managing a regular grooming schedule? Completely doable, in theory. But how exactly? What to Do about Everything is the ultimate householders' guide to twentyfirst century living. It covers everything from changing a tyre to surviving divorce, and addresses all sorts of households, not just the traditional nuclear family. Applying cast-iron information and empathy to all aspects of domestic life, Barbara Toner has ensured that anyone with a roof over their head can dip into it and find the help they need, whether it's how to darn a sock, hire a plumber, light a fire, leave their husband or decide they're gay after all. This comprehensive book covers household relationships, time management, household administration, money, where to live, home renovations, chores, clothes care, food, home repairs, transport, childcare and rearing, grooming and healthcare, holidays, home entertainment, socialising etiquette, life changes (death, job loss, moving) and much more. Modern life is stressful. Nothing contains stress better than order; nothing relieves it better than knowing what must be done.show more

About Barbara Toner

For a billion reasons, domestic life seems much more stressful than it used to. Aside from spending more time than ever at work, we've got emails, mobile phones, Facebook, exes, other halves, the hunt for said 'other halves', pets, children, global warming, carbs and reruns of Friends to contend with. Gulp.show more
