Ever wished you'd paid more attention when Grandad replaced a washer, or changed the oil in the car, or polished his shoes? Here's another must-have household bible - the perfect companion volume to Tips From Your Nana - to help with everyday tasks as well as the more fun stuff, like making home brew beer and cider. This time we look at Grandad's 'number 8 wire' hints: from car maintenance, to growing fruit trees, to catching and smoking your own fish. Grandad's pretty handy with a hammer too - he can bang together a basic barbecue (as well as supply some recipes and how-to tips), fix those crumbling old tiles and he can show you how to prepare a wall for painting. He even knows how to make soap (it's easier than you think) and, being a multi-talented man, can make his own liqueurs, toys and sweets, too. Tips from your Grandad is a practical, how-to-guide that covers a wide range of lifestyle basics. It's full of irresistible ideas, is seriously useful and is a great deal of fun. Tammy Williams' stunning photographs show off Grandad's best side. This stylishly presented book is the perfect gift for the Gen-Y or -X on your list.
