Millions of people around the world suffer from fibromyalgia; the majority of them are women. As yet, there is no cure.
In this memoir, Brigid P. Gallagher shares her experiences on:
- The busy life she followed before succumbing to this debilitating disease
- Stopping and soul searching for answers to her vast array of symptoms
- Entering a new life of SLOW
Drawing on her knowledge and experience as a Natural Medicines therapist, she seeks out therapies to aid her healing and integrates a variety of self help techniques and lifestyle changes. She also unearths a love of solo travel including Egypt, India, Rome, Lourdes, Carcassonne and Bali…
Brigid learns many insights about LIFE on her journey, the most valuable being: “First learn to love thyself.”
In 2006, she began a new career in Organic Horticulture eventually teaching part time in schools. Although she has now retired from teaching, she continues to pursue her lifelong passion for gardening and watching the daisies.
One of the recent reviews
A very enjoyable biography from Brigid, who experienced childhood tragedy in the loss of her young mother and went on to become one of the first champions of alternative healing in Scotland.Her story takes her through her childhood in Kippen to the smorgasbord of natural therapies and healings in which she trained, through to her own serious health struggles with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. She finds healing in many travels and immerses herself in her love of gardening where she learns the joys of slow and “watching the daisies”.Like “Eat, pray, love” Brigid’s is a spiritual journey, the insights from each chapter were lovely. I recommend this book to anyone who has struggled through poor health. The book carries a message of hope as Brigid perseveres with her search for both spiritual and physical healing

The review from Alicia on Goodreads.
I fell in love with this novel almost from the beginning. I truly loved the characters. They are so well written you can feel their personalities coming through the page and feeling what those interacting with them feel.
The plotline seemed straightforward, at first, it or is anything but. Twists and turns are placed in exactly the right moments. Those you suspect…some might be true, others you will be off base, but either way, the ending will surprise you.
I read this novella straight through, even while making and eating dinner. The truly wonderful characters, the great storyline, and the romantic suspense, with a little romance on the side, make this a novella definitely NOT to be missed.
Only problem: I have no clue when the next book in this series will be written and released. It was that good.

And finally a lovely review for Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Dough Bees Story and Cookbook by Robbie and Michael Cheadle on Goodreads.
A greedy snail damages the flower fields and the fondant bees are in danger of starving. Join Sir Chocolate on an adventure to find the fruit drop fairies who have magic healing powers and discover how to make some of his favourite foods on the way.
The review from Jann Weeratunga – Five Stars
I adore Robbie and Michael’s concept behind their books – just brilliant.
Interactive so that parents can not only read a book with their children but create the characters plus much more. A fun was to read, but also be involved with your children’s development, and I am sure it leads to many more imaginative games as the children can use their dough character in their own games.
A much-needed read for this busy world we live in, to make us slow down, interact and be with our children.
I would thoroughly recommend it to all parents
