The best thing to happen to me so far in 2011 is planning and booking some amazing holidays for the coming year, especially a fun USA trip in April. There's no better way to stay motivated at work than having a giant post-it note countdown to your next holiday stuck to your monitor!

Hearing from a bunch of people that I haven't been in touch with for ages on the 1st Jan...

The best thing that's happened to me is that I've been followed by Alex Epstein from The Apprentice on Twitter. The guy who said if he was an apple pie, the apples would be oranges. That's right, that's the level of excitement my 2011 has reached so far *sigh*

So far, the best thing that has happened to me has been learning to play dominoes with my mum and dad. It has been a great way to spend some time together and we've had a lot of laughs and fun.

The best thing to happen so far this new year is that my ridiculously sporty boyfriend finally did the maths and realised that he needs to eat more! so now I can stop nagging...quite so much =]

The best thing that has happened this year is that it isn't horrible 2010 anymore - and a potential reunion with an ex and possible promotion mean its already promising to be a better year!

The best thing to happen to me this new year is discovering Jillian Michaels. She is beating my sorry self into shape. Jillian I salute you.

The best thing to happen so far this year is my new pair of boots. No really, you should see them- they're pretty awesome.

The best thing that has happened this year so far is the realisation that there is a lot to look forward to :)

the best things to happen to me this shiny new year is my new niece and recovering from a illness after 11yrs oh yeh and f course the new innocent advert its great xxx

The best thing that has happened to me in this shiny new year is that I finally managed to stop smoking!

I finally got one of those elusive Kit kats without the waffer, I thought it was just a myth they existed!

unfortunatly they dont taste as good as all those years searching promised it to be!

The best thing to happen to me in the new year is a big cuddle from my 10 year old daughter, nothing else just that......

The best thing to happen to me in this shiny New Year is the realisation, on the 7th, that in another (7th February here I come!) month I'll be FIFTY - yes, 50! There is something phenomenally exciting about feeling like a 6-year-old inside, yet attaining such a formidable and golden age - seriously, I can't wait (does being 50 mean I'll finally be a grown-up?)! Needless to say everyone thinks I'm mad ((-;

The best thing abvout this year I'll have a shiney new passport so I can explore this wonderful world of ours

The arrival of the shiny new seed catalogue. The best way to brighten up the recent gloomy mornings is looking at all the colourful fruit and veg and deciding what to grow this year *cue dream sequence of summertime in the garden*

The best thing that has happened to me is that my favourite band have announced some new tour dates and I'm going to go to all of them!

The best thing to happen so far this year was feeling my baby kicking. Second best thing - learning to knit!

Best thing so far - sticking to my no drinking detox for the last 10 days to kick start my new year diet. Added bonus that I wasn't in anyway hungover and was able to enjoy a day of galleries and museums on Sunday.

the best thing that happened to me is my daughter wished me a happy new year she hadn't spoken to me for months

Best thing... innocent smoothie at 1/2 price in my local supermarket - double dose, double power!

The best thing that has happened to me this year is losing Christmas weight having innocent veg pots everyday and fruit tubes to snack on!

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that I have realised I have more love in my life, from my friends, family and partner. My neice has just been born (little Erin), and my boyfriend has just proposed. Happy 2011!

The best thing that's happened so far this year, well ok for a VERY long time.. Is that I got engaged at the weekend and have changed my total way of thinking as a consequence.

Hmmm, something good? Oh dear, everything's just been mundane and mediocre so far! But!! It's my birthday next week so I think all the brilliant stuff is holding itself back until then... :)

My mum recovering well from a series of serious surgeries.

The best thing that has happened to me in 2011 is that I've discovered Michael Smith called his cat PatĂȘ. Please give him a prize!

The best thing that's happened to me this year is nothing external, but internal. After reading one of the books I got for Christmas - this year has already made me feel like a new person, new priorities and new outlook on life. The best thing that's happened to me this year is discovering the world all over again through different eyes. God bless 2011. Bring on the smoothies.

The best thing to happen to me this new year is realising that I no longer love my ex-boyfriend (who treated me terribly!) and that I'm finally ready to move on and start living my life again!

Weekends!

The best thing that happened this year is being diagnosed with IBS (as opposed to stomach cancer/ulcers/whatever else it might have been). Now I can focus on what's causing it, manage it and carry on with my life without worrying that I'm going to drop down dead any day!

I was made redundant a week before Xmas and then went down with 'flu all over the holidays. I thought it was the worst New Year ever until my amazing boyfriend made me realise that I am free to go out there and find a job that will make me a lot happier than the old one, and that sometimes the best Holidays are spent at home, just appreciating home and the people in it. So the best thing to happen to me this New Year is him, and now I'm actually looking forward to the year!

The best thing that has happened so far in this shiny new year is that we booked our wedding! Yay! Exciting stuff.

Now... time to start eating and being healthy so I can fit in my dress... :)

I'm finally back in my building site flat after a long four months sharing beds/floors/mice playgrounds with anyone who'd have me.

I still have plaster dust lungs, regularly fuse the myriad of extension cable electrics trying to cook without a kitchen and have to ward off pitchfork brandishing neighbours but it's home sweet sweet, new start home.

The best thing that's happened to me this year was when a flying monkey jumped on my head, grabbed my ears, and whisked me off to 'monkey land' where I partied on a giant (and incidentally edible)banana boat with his monkey friends, and swang through the treetops (accidentally banging a few giraffes' heads as we went along) to well loved animaltastic tunes.

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that i have bee given more hours to work and also i shall be working as a music teacher for 2 days a week starting in april.

The best thing to happen so far this year was finding out that I am expecting my first baby! No idea how it's all going to work but we'll get there one way or another!

The nicest thing to happen to me this year is i've become a godmother =)

The best thing that's happened to me this shiny new year is finally finding a house and moving out of the in-laws'! :-)

The best thing to happen to me so far is that my Dad requested a knitted hat off me. And wears it religiously. Unlike his socks.

The best thing that's happened to me this shiny new year is discovering that the robin who visits my garden every day really, really likes grated cheddar cheese and looks extremely cute while he's eating it which makes me smile every time!

the best thing that has happened to me this year is that indstead of fighting with my enimies in school they're now my friends.

The best thing to happen this year so far is that I can finally do a project on dinosaurs for my uni work. ROAAAAR!

The best thing so far was meeting with a circle of colleagues for our regular support meeting, and not whining about anything. After 6 months of difficulties, the weight has lifted somewhat.

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year:

After setting up my own business last year, being thanked by a client for helping them, where the words: "delighted" "excellent" and "THANKS" were highly used!

Reminded me a: how much I love my job and b: how lovely it is to say a heartfelt thank you.

I've finished my Tax return!! Two weeks ahead of deadline - very proud of mysen :-)

2 friends of mine with cancer got better!! SUCH a relief. What a good 2011 it will be. x

The best thing that has happened to me this shiny new year has been seeing the young people I work with getting excited about the things they can achieve in the year ahead

The best thing to happen to me this year is watching my lovely 7 year old daughter skip with joy for no reason other than she's happy, healthy and loved : )

I won an smartphone and i received it the morning of my birthday, the 10 of january, great surprise!

Learning how to 'do' a hula hoop (the plastic type, not the crispy variety) - I've been trying to do this for about 30 years, so have laid primary school ghosts to rest! :) :) :)

Finding out that my 45 year old brother will be a Grandad later this year. LOL. The opportunities to call him Grandad just keep rolling in. The whole family is loving it. (Oh and my nephew and his girlfriend are delighted with the news of pending arrival.)

The worst thing to happen to me was my best friend and partner died on Boxing Day. The best thing was to hear my grandson Chris and wife Laura are expecting a baby in July.
Love your advert
June age 82

Moving into my lovely new house!

The best thing that has happened so far in this shiny new year is coming back after spending the Christmas period with my family to find my boyfriend had got an earlier flight back from spending Christmas with his grandma in Slovakia, and had decorated my room with lots of flowers, fairy lights and candles... and even managed to wash my bedding. What a lovely welcome home surprise.

The best thing that has happened to me this year so far is going snowboarding on fresh snow on my birthday along with some surprise flowers waiting for me when I got back.

The best thing that happened to me this year, came out of the worst thing that happened. I was recently diagnosed with m.e. (chronic fatigue) and have been in quite a dark sad place, but I was reminded of the love and friendship of my flatmate, who has been looking after me and putting me on the right path back through positive thinking and healthy living.

the best thing that happened to me this year might be the mornings i spent starring at the squirrel on innocent orange juice. definitely the best way to wake up

By far the most sunshiny thing to bring a massive smile to my face was watching my little 6 month old weeble finally work out that she can shuffle forwards across the carpet! The cheeky grin she has whilst doing it has confirmed to me that even january doesn't have to be miserable!

The best thing to happen is enjoying my first new year with my (relatively) new husband. He is likely to be moving away this year and going abroad (possibly Afganistan) with the military, so every day is a gift.

Seeing signs of spring - bluebells & primroses poking through the ground

The best thing to happen to me is that our garage is finally getting rebuilt (its only taken us 6 and a half years of stress to get to this stage). And I'm having a baby in 2 weeks!

The best thing has got to be returning home after being away, with and to find lots of chocolates and xmas goodies to nibble and munch my way through - perfect as it was back to work and studies and no time to do a proper shop... eep!

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that for the very first time my 13 month old baby slept all the way through the night in his own cot, in his own room without waking up! Amazing! I felt like a different woman. Mind you he only did it that one time last week but at least he did it - we're getting there slowly! Yawn!

the weather is getting warmer and the days getting lighter...cheering me up no end :)

The best things that have happened this shiny new year is that I have given up smoking and this means .... a) I don't smell of stinky fags, b) I don't have to go outside in the pouring rain just to get my fix and c) I have been able to spend a day out with my children without thinking about how I can have a fag without them seeing me.

The best thing to happen to me so far this year is finally seeing the sun again for the first time since november!!

Cheered us up loads, and gave us a new insight into the police force...!

Best thing to happen to me so far this year is realising that people care what i natter on about :)

So far it has to be having a really nice stir fry for tea. It was so yummy I could eat it again. If only...

I managed to lick my elbow...

The best thing that has happened to me this year in the 13 days of it so far, is that I've adopted my dads old guitar (he bought it cause he was having a midlife crisis and couldn't afford a swish car....apparently) and am teaching myself to play. So far i can play A and E chords :D

The best thing to happen to me this year is that at my cousin's wife's funeral I met all my 2nd and 3rd cousins once or twice removed and their offspring and they all want to be friends with me on facebook. It is really so exciting because I spent most of my childhood in a children's home separated from my mother, father, brother and sister and now at the age of nearly 70 I have found all these lovely people who want to be friends with me.
