The best thing this year is meeting lots of lovely interesting people at a Sophia Network networking event....and potentially winning some free stuff :/

The best thing that has happened to me in this shiny new year is I finally got made redundant and they're giving me so much redundancy money! Time to move house, get a new job and a fresh new start!

The best thing that's happened to me this new year is discovering the 'new me'. He spends his time buying organic stuff and talking a lot about positive energy. I hate him.

How nice that everyone has had such fab starts to their new year. Best thing so far, reading this!

watching the fireworks at Midnight on New Year over
Funchal harbour in Madeira on the roof of the hotel with a glass of bubbly with husband, son, brothers and mum & dad bliss xx

The best thing to happen this year was the Tea and Kittens link at the bottom of your newsletter! No more January exam stress for me :]
Thanks innocent!

Best thing that happened to me so far this year is my team at work, having a whip round to get me some lovely choccys and a card for my recovery after my operation tomorrow!

The best thing thats happened to me this year is my 6 year old son telling me that he has a commendation for his school work, I'm so proud.

The best thing that has happened to me this year is, after spending almost all of 2010 out of work, I've got an interview for a job. New year, new start :o)

The best thing to happen to me this year was using the joy that is public transport to get back to University without the hassle of snow...
Although this means back to exams, piling on the unattractive (but very practical) jumpers, and more exams...Yay for being a student!

The best thing that has happened this year is.....

Returning to work!!! I know, its wierd! Who really wants to work?? but I had a massive illness in 2010 and I havent been able to work at all since last May!!! I missed all my residents (I work in a dementia care home) and colleagues and am sooooooooooooooooooooooo pleased to be back at work!!

So thats me pleased to be at work!!

The best thing to happen so far this year is my bezzie mate getting a lung transplant, and being on the road to recovery!!

The best thing to happen to me so far this year is a new electric blanket and soft soft duvet, for my previously evil bed in my cold, cold room. Now the only problem is actually getting up in the morning. Or ever.

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is discovering that my husband's long term stomach complaint is not the cancer we feared it was :o)

The best thing that has happened to me this year, is turning up to a poetry show, signing up for the poetry slam, performing and winning the Farrago New Year Poetry slam!!!!

The best thing this year...is my husband and I sticking to our 'less tv, more music and reading' resolution. Quality time with the hubby while expanding my brain.

also reading about everyone else's best years, has put a huge smile on my face on this very wet and windy morning xx

The best thing that has happened to me in this shiny new year is that my parents took me to Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London for my 18th birthday, and I had that martini that Daniel Craig makes up on the spot in the movie Casino Royale... it's not actually that nice...
But you know what would make my shiny new year even better, Innocent? A New Year, New You box which would help me to end up looking like the lovely Joe ;)

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is leading my first caving trips in the mendips, somerset. They were really fun and everyone enjoyed them, despite it being a little wet and "sporting"!

Other highlights have been seeing "matilda - the musical" in stratford-on avon, and having some really lovely referances written about me so I can apply to Forest School Camps, which means more camping, caving and canoeing! 2011 is amazing!! :D

The best thing so far this year, my mum being ok after a a dash to hospital and some surgery......now for me to get back to it, with the help of one of your new year new you packs! xx

The best thing that has happened to me so far is being asked to be a bridesmaid at my brothers wedding next year. Im soo excited :) xx

The best thing that's happened to me so far this year was a very nice lady tugging my dress down over my butt after the skirt had got caught in my coat after sitting on the tube and I had shared my cheeks without realising! I (hopefully) had only shared with half a dozen people before she saved me!!!

Getting to see the new year in with my lovely boyfriend. He lives abroad at the mo so time together is extra precious.

second installment of student loan in my bank, i can eat and 'drink' again!

The best thing to happen this new year is to get home from hospital for a whole weekend to be with my lovely girls and their dad. Just to not have to eat mashed potato as a main meal, to have vegetables that are not mixed frozen veg, to sleep in my own bed. Bliss. (PS your veg pots are brill, but what's happened to mushroom risotto ? Our Tescos doesn't have it. I liked it with pearl barley best but I'm not fussed It's just it's the only pot without chilli and my mouth can't take chilli very well at the moment.)

The best think to happen in this new year is that my boyfriend proposed during the midnight fireworks (I said yes!) and we are finally living in the same country after several years of long distance!

the best thing to happen this year, is to realise that at the end of the day all that matters is that you and your loved ones are safe and well - there's alot of terrible things going on in the world just now - let's just be grateful for what we have

The best thing that has happened this year has been my eventual acceptance of being rejected from Oxford. Yes, this is a pity vote...
You won't judge me... :)

best bit of the shiny new year is zooming around on my shiny new bike, getting rained and snowed on!

My best friend and I are happy again :)

Running the 2 miles home on new year's morning in full fancy dress felt like a great way to start the year and also meant that I didn't miss the skitrain to the Alps!

The best thing that has happened to me so far in 2011 is that I got some of my exam results back, and they were LOADS better than I expected so YAY!! The next good thing I hope to happen will be getting into the Sixth Form of my choice, I'll let you know if I do!!

The best thing for me this year was the discovery, as I wandered around our wreck of a garden after all the snow, to discover that the 200 daffodils I planted last year are starting to poke their heads through the earth! what a marvellous harbinger of spring (and so sorely needed)!!

... My new chopping board. No onions. No garlic. Just slices of kiwi that taste like kiwi. (It's a curious affliction, but I suffer from B.A.D, or Bulbous Affective Disorder. Onions make me grumpy).

The best thing that has happened to me this year was finally making up with my long lost sister after 8 years apart. I literally couldn't ask for anything better

It's been sunny every day off so far :) How good is that!

The best thing this year... Looking back to the last one and realising that life has finally taken the right direction. Then deciding that I'm going to make 2011 even better.

The best thing that's happened to me in 2011 is managing to do 4 AS exams one day after the other without screaming... And I had an innocent smoothie every day :)

I've had my hair cut short and can now see my earrings and feel the wind on my neck!

The best thing thats happened is that realising I didn't put any extra weight on over Christmas despite continuos chocolates, mince pies, stollen and nuts!! Also, that Innocent smoothies have been reduced in my local supermarket. Time to stock up!

The best thing that's happened to me so far this year is becoming a great- auntie to a beautiful little girl, India Charlotte Gwynne Butler - she looks gorgeous!

The best thing that's happened so far this year is
1) I made a blog
2) I made brownies
Life doesn't get much better than this! x

The best thing that has happened so far in this shiny new year is buying a (289 litre) shiny new chest freezer - with a contribution from my mum's Chanukah money and just before the VAT rise - a housewifely dream of mine for years :-)

I'll be able to home cook and bake in large batches...eating better and doing better, though I'd rather not end up looking like Joe. (Sorry Joe.)

My Grandmother's 90th birthday party was a wonderful occasion this weekend, enjoyed by family & friends - definitely the highlight of the year so far. What amazing changes she's seen through her life.

The best thing that has happened to me this year was walking into work on the first day back discovering something amazing:
everyone else was also really drunk at the christmas party so they don't remember my drunken-ness!

Best thing that's happened to me this new year has been being given a blue velvet tricorn hat (with feathers) for my 18th- and even better, it fits over my afro! huzzah!

The best thing that has happened this year would be that i have started drinking herbal tea 3 times a day (a different one each time) and i feel great because of it! Im gonna try n take in some more healthy things i think!

The best thing to happen to me this year was being reunited with my husband on Friday after he returned from a 2 week work trip. IT'S CHEESY BUT TRUE: 'distance makes the heart grow fonder'

The best thing that has happened to me was my teenage son discovering Mahler and realising that he's a damn fine cellist. My daughter has also dicovered the joy of reading fiction again for the first time in 5 years thanks to her Kindle. For an English teacher who loves classical music, this is a pretty fine way to start the year.

The best thing is my friend agreeing we should start our own preschool - it's going to be such fun!

The best thing for me this year was my weekend away at the Love is a Verb Conference. Although i was working, not only did i manage to form my 'vision statement' for the future, but i made the contacts to make it happen. SO, my vision statement is:
"to be the reflection of Jesus, and to be the body through which the Holy Spirit brings comfort and warmth to strangers in a foreign land, and the broken women of the world."
SO... i'll be off to Calcutta soon to work with the prostitutes in Sonagachi. Wish me luck innocent team! :)

So far nothing has happened to dampen my good mood. Bliss. Long may it continue. Plus my little girl and boy provide me with a fresh new delight every day. Is there no end to the ways they can make me smile?

The best thing to happen so far this year is-my hubby is able to go back to work after surviving another bout of cardiac trouble. Life seems to be getting back to normal!

The best thing that has happened so far in this shiny new year was winning on the scratch cards, I ran back into the shop and had only won a pound, but I had never won on a scratch card before :)

The best thing that has happened to me so far this shiny year is being surrounded by all my friends, with party popper remnants in my hair, blowing bubbles, drawing faces on balloons and sticking them to the ceiling with only the power of static electricity, whilst eating cake and catching up on xmas and new year goings on. I have amazing friends :)

The best thing that has happened to me this year? I realised I had achieved everything I wanted to achieve when I was 16. I have aced my GCSE's and A Level's, aced my Art and Design Foundation, got a degree in Product Design, moved to London and found a job. I am now (nearly) a grown up......

The best thing that has happened to me this year is being able to see my niece again for the first time in nearly 2 years.

The best thing that's happened to me this shiny new year is being voted "MOST LIKELY TO SUCESSFULLY SET UP A BUBBLE-WRAP MAKING COMPANY".... I like to think this is a good thing!

The best thing that happened to me this year was going to look at the house that my great-grandparents owned and by chance meeting a lady who was researching its history so I could find out more about it. Also it's beautiful, even if it is flats now!

The absolute best thing that happened to me this year was that I turned 18! And I had a 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' themed party which my family made all sorts of treats for, including a giant caterpillar made out of balloons! We'll all grow old, but I'll never grow up :)

The best thing *was* gonna be that my brother and sister-in-law finally were able to adopt a baby girl, but then the birth mother took her back a few days later :( so I'm back to waiting for the best thing again. Innocent vouchers are starting to look promising for the best thing though. *coughs quietly*

Getting back in touch with some old friends and planning a get together soon - can't wait

The best thing thta has happened to me this year is getting to meet David Attenborough, after watching a speech he did.

The best thing that's happened to us this year is adopting our little man and being 5 stone nearer my weight target so that I can be the active fun filled mummy I always wanted to be..

Very selfish but the best thing so far for me was to go away to a Spa hotel for 2 days, having a full body massage, a bottle of champagne (which we took with us!) and lots of lovely food.
At the end of the 2 days I had the worst thing so far this year - news of my dear Grandad's death - really hope nothing worse happens for a long time...

The best thing to happen to me is hat my son has passed through the teemager stage!!

The best thing to happen to me this year is.... my boyfriend and I have decided to move in together this summer, I have lost 5lbs in weight somehow and have discovered the joy of Christmas cake and leftover quality street. Mmmm.

The best thing to happen this year so far was laughing until I cried at my daughter kangarooing down the road on her first driving lesson on her 17th Birthday, the driving instructor said she was an 'interesting' driver! - it made me feel old but it was hilarious!

the best thing thats happened so far this year is realising that spending a saturday night playing scrabble when your 17 actually is cool when you learn 5 new words!!

The best thing to happen for me this year ((so far..)) is that I got Wii Fit Plus, which helps to motivate me more!!

Best thing was becoming 40 on the 14th Jan! Mainly because I had a big party with lots of family and friends and got to stay at a posh hotel.

I passed my driving test so hard (on my third attempt, mind!) that the examiner told me that it was a 'very smooth drive'.

One minor. Awww yeah. 8)

I know I'm past the deadline but forgot to do this earlier and seeing as I can't sleep thought I would share the love now. Best thing so far - an evening with my junior badminton team full of food and banter, were 24 and haven't all been tigether at once since we were about 17. I know one of the best things of 2011 will be hitting the slopes with my dad and brother next week, so excited!

The best thing to happen this year is that I have not had any exams and have been able to relax in January for the first time in seven years!

The best things that have happened this year so far are avoiding redundancy by getting a job elsewhere in the company and also being given the all clear after a check-up to see if my cancer's still in remission.

im getting tutoring because i cant go to school, because i have chronic fatigue. now i will get GCSEs :D and go to to college. and my sea monkeys which i though were dead are alive and huge!

The fact that I successfully didn't drink for 21 days and it didn't hurt much. The pleasure is to be found in the fact that I am not, as it turns out, (definitely at least) a complete wino.

Reading all these, nothing even remotely good in comparrison has happened to me. Yet. But I do have a lovely guy, an amazing happy baby son and a roof over my head, and that's enough for me.
Umm, I have read a few good books so far, written a bit and done a lot of cleaning. I've also just started weaning my baby and he is loving food.

The best thing that has happened to me this year is my appointment with the most handsome gynacologist ever...seriously :-\

Best thing of 2011
im still here

The best thing thats happened to me so far this year is find out im pregnant!!!!!! x
