The best thing that has happened this year is winning a scholarship to a summer school in Seoul, South Korea.

The best thing that has happened to me this year is the arrival of my lovely girls Prudence, Claudia and Mavis, who are the prettiest and also daftest hens ever. They were a belated Christmas present from my brother* which makes them even better! *p.s. I do not normally condone the giving and receiving of little creatures as christmas presents, but these ones have been planned since they hatched in August, so I think that's probably OK :)

The best thing that has happened to me so far in 2011 is my boyfriend taking me to a bespoke designer jeweller to let me design my engagement ring :D

The best thing to happen to me this year so far is....that I treated myself to a new jumper with mini seahorses all over it!

The best thing that happened to me this year, so far, is that someone was kind enough to hand back a pile of stuff that fell out of my wallet.

I had been working for a few days, and had been given a new purse for Christmas.

As I was looking in my bag for something, my wallet fell open on the pavement, and I thought I had picked everything up, but I hadn't.

A few days later, I got a call from the rock climbing club I'm a member of, telling me that my cards had been found by a very kind staff member of a local shop, and she would hold them until I was able to collect them! I was really touched by their kindness, as while it wasn't a bank card or anything that I had lost, they had obviously spent a lot of effort trying to find someone who knew me.

The best thing that's happened this year is suddenly being very popular at my new work after getting the office 20 free veg pots! I was fast-tracked to the front of the microwave queue and someone even stirred it for me! Fame and glory.

The best thing that happened so far this year has been my little boy starting primary school a week ago... I was terrified for him and me!!! We are both doing brilliant...he has been doing well in school and I am coping fine, I didn't think I was gonna survive without him ;)

The best thing that has happen to me is that my twins both walked for the first time today! Hooray...16 months and i was beginning to think they would never do it...Zachary 6 steps and Florrie 10! Woo hoo!

Best thing I have done is run the Great Winter Run last week and raised money for Alzheimer's by doing it.

The best thing that happened to me this year is getting an offer for a place at Oxford university! Then there's the bonus of losing those extra Christmas pounds with the help of innocent smoothies ( pineapple, banana and coconut, nom! ) and those scrummy veg pots :D thanks innocent!

best thing is my daughter finally starting to talk and we had our first playgroup today she is 2 and has an innocent smoothie EVERY day (no other smoothie will do she has excellent taste!) as she was on medication for stomach problems but no longer needs it as long as she has her smoothies! so they have a medical greatness too as well as tasting gorgeous! (we sadly dont get them as she takes them if we have any!:( lol)

GO innocent!

The best thing that has happened to me this year so far is getting a unexpected new years day phone call from the very brave love of my life who is currently stuck under the sea in a submarine, i'm not allowed to know where, and has been there since september. Who knows when he can come back, but we are re-celebrating christmas and new years when he come back. So i can re-start my resolutions then :)

The best thing that has happened so far this year is that I got a brand new Whirlpool washing machine yesterday (after getting rid of my faulty Hotpoint one) & it is absolutely excellent!!
Thank you also to my husband Chris for helping me sort this out & supporting me by staying at home to be in when the engineers came etc!

That my 5 year old was over the moon to get 6/6 in his first spelling test (query why he has to have them but...) he was so full of himsel he told everyone he saw onthe way home from school!

Wycome Wanderers 0 Hereford United 1; we're on our way to Wembley via Hillsborough.

The best thing this year was when my 7yr old daughter decided to help me out during shopping was to lip speak to what the shop sales staff were saying to me ( you see I'm hearing impaired) without me asking her made me so proud of her and now it makes shopping so much fun with her ! X

The best shiny new year happening in my life is that I've managed to land another fab job WITHOUT having to fill in an application form, have an interview or do that horrid half-hour teaching slot with everyone watching you! YAY!

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that I found out my best friend is expecting a teeny girl in May. Pink shopping alert- goes with my favourite strawberries & bananas smoothie!!

Finding out that my best friend's eye cancer surgery have been a success

The best thing thats happened to us this year is we decided to try and have a baby!!! Fingers crossed for us - lil innocent baby for 2011 hopefully!! :)

We finished off last year with a bit of a boo - the other 'arf got made redundant, but the best thing that's happened this year is that he's got a new job. Yippee-yi-yay and onwards and upwards!

My 8-month-old slept through the night for the first time (well until 5am but that was amazing!)

The best thing to happen to me so far this year is being told I could finish my training course earlier than expected...other than that...nothing much really :(

The best thing that has happened to me this shiny bright new year was finally seeing my mum after weeks and weeks and showing her that yes i am finally old enough to live on my own and look after myself... although a bit of help with washing and food parcels do come in handy (please) mummy....

The best thing to happen to me this year was I ACTUALLY posted MY poem to a newspaper.

The best thing that has happened so far this year is that I won £1000 to help put on a community art project I am planning. And I'm pretty sure it's going to be really good.

The best thing to happen to me this year is to realise that if things keep on going how they have been, then I'll be a millionaire by the end of it. A life of fresh coconuts and professional volunteering awaits...

Leeds 1-Arsenal 1

What more can I say?

New year, new stomach bug, new dress size :)

The best thing thats happened to me this year... I can move in with a friend (and most importantly, with a chinchilla called Harry. And he's German).

The best thing that's happened so far in this shiny new year ..... is buying a bike so that I can go cycling with my husband. I only see him at the weekends (as I work away) and now I can get outdoors, see nature, get some exercise, and we can have many adventures together.

The best thing that happened to me in this shiny new year? My Husband was not admitted to hospital following swine flu & pneumonia. He is now on the mend. :-)

The best thing to happen to me so far is starting my fitness instructor course and then finding out my trainer is pregnant and wants me to cover her classes when I qualify. Woo to the Hoo!

The best things about this shiny new 2011 are 1) That I'm still alive - I nearly wasn't in 2009 and 2010; 2) My wonderful and clever son learning to play the mandolin really well in just a week and 3) seeing Jupiter's moons through a pair of binoculars! (oh and getting daft newsletters from Innocent that always make me laugh).

The best thing that's happened to us so far this year is working out that we can have a weekend away in a caravan - our first family holiday! We'll have been married for ten years in March and our daughters are eight and six so it's really exciting!

The best thing so far this year..? I (finally!) worked up the enthusiasm / nerve / courage to do my tax return and file it online ... its been hanging over my head for AGES and I am SO glad it is done.. and it wasn't actually as bad as I thought it would be!! I am very proud of myself!!

The best thing to happen to us this year is finding out my partner might be made redundant. It's good because it might be the incentive we need to take the plunge to buy a franchise enabling us to coach sports to children. A new life beckons! (Plus we get married this year & one of these boxes might help me get into my dress by May!)

the best thing thats happened to me this year is receiving the innocent newsletter in my inbox :)
joking im not that much of a suck up, the best bit is that i FINALLY understood triganometry! (tho i cant spell it)
well i'll never use it after GCSE, so now im thinking what was the point? maybe this new year isn't so shiny...

The best thing to happen to me is my boyfriend surviving a live TV appearance talking about his fabulous photography on 11th January. He did soooo well! I am STILL bursting with pride! :D

Getting my new baby tortoise!

The best thing that's happened to me so far this year is coming home to find that my cat has grown tired of deciding to throw up on the door mat and drag it into the middle of the hall as a present for me to find when I get home.

I got better.
Been sick since the beginning of December.
Finally stopped feeling like a shuffling pensioner this week

I came home from a horrible exam to have a housemate take me out for afternoon tea and then to find that another friend had sent me a short story that she had written just for me. It's the small things that make all of the difference.

The best thing to happen to me so far is my mother-in-law's announcement that she's emigrating on 1st March to New Zealand and "sadly" won't be returning to the UK ever. This is such good news because she really has made my life a nightmare (At the moment she lives 30 miles away but keeps "just being in the area so thought I'd pop in")

The best thing that has happened to me this year is finally getting rid of my abusive partner and starting a new exciting life on my own. each day has been a new experience and i have started keeping a happy book which was my new years resolution i am already enjoying reading the happy moments in it and feeling like i am extremely lucky even when a day is going very wrong.

The best thing to happen to me so far this year is that I have won a hotel voucher, so we have a lovely break to look forward to when the weather improves.

I just got a new job after being made redundant on 17th of Dec 09.
A holiday will be pn the cards for my son this year. Things are looking up yay

It has got to be finding innocent smoothies half price at the supermarket ;)

That and discovering 'dance on broadway' for the wii! I may look a prat doing it but its helping me keep to my new years resolution to exercise more!

The best thing that happened to me this year was dragging myself out of my hangover and 2 hours sleep on New Years Day to travel down to Portland, Dorset to go climbing and camping. In January. Camping. Yes.
I may have never been cold for such a sustained period in my life before but I got some great climbing in with some fantastic views and had a nice healthy start to the new year with some brilliant friends.

the best thing so far this year...all the family have now recovered from colds, sore throats, ear infection etc etc

Best thing:
Going outside each day, to find something beautiful to look at in nature (living in a city centre, makes this a difficult, but enjoyable challenge!)

Oh and trying an innocent smoothie for free... mangoes and passion fruit = 10/10 on the 'yummy' scale

The best thing that happened to me this year is my husband just become chartered after three long years of study now theres no more paper work that sthe best thing thats happened to me

The best thing hasn't quite happened yet but it is my birthday next week and my family are kindly giving me a henhouse and some chickens and we can all enjoy lovely free range eggs.
I also love baking and making homemade icecream, so they are all going to be extra scrummy!

The best thing that has happened to me is the baby shower of my bestest friend and her much longed for baby who is due in six short weeks so the smoothie vouchers would be so good for her!

The best thing to happen to me is seeing the hottie in the green sweater holding my new near new you prize ;-)

Best thing that's happened to me is that my 16 year old son said "Oh Mum, you are SO from the 60's"... I, feeling a little miffed, pressed him to qualify his remark... he said "Well, you are so happy all the time, like everyone was in the 60's" !!!! Woo-hoo!

the best thing that has happened to me this year is figuring out the meaning of life.. something to do with coffee, smiling, and the occasional burst of sunshine. (oh, and a crispy apple).

The best things was finding some Postman Pat slippers half price in the sales. You can't beat a bargain!

The best thing that's happened in this shiny new year is when I made creme brulee, what with the blowtorch and the crunchy topping and did I mention the blowtorch already?

Best thing so far is enjoying dreaming up plans for 2011, getting back into running and starting to pick up musical instruments again to relax in the evenings.

I watched the Bee Movie for the first time.... "Here comes the sun- der, der, dar-dar"

The best thing so far this year has been planning a trip to Rotterdam wearing the most exciting hats we can find! So far, our group contains: an aviator hat with goggles, a cowboy hat, a striped top hat and a rasta hat.

The best thing that happened to me this year was passing my year at the open university! A close 2nd was my boyfriend moving in with me :)

The best thing that's happened to me so far this year is that I have fallen in love with my wonderful boyfriend, with whom I want to share my life. :)

Thus far the best thing that has happened this year was flying my hot air balloon over a school at break time whilst dressed as Santa claus! Expect that confused the little blighters! Any thoughts on getting your own branded hot air balloon Innocent? If so give me a ring!!

The best thing that happened to me this new year is finding out that in a month time I'll be an Uncle not once but twice in the space of 4 weeks!

My baby son started smiling ( but just for me) I've never felt so priviliged!

The best thing to happen this year is that I'm finally off my "happy" pills (anti-depressants) and can see the world healthy and happy for the first time in four years! It feels really, really good.

The best thing that has happened this new year is that my husband has finally agreed to take 1 day off a week. We've had a new baby (in July) and the past 6 months without his help (because he had been working 12 hour days/7 days a week) was traumatic. He agreed to spend more time with us - in the evenings and on his day off in Jan and I'm a much happier mum. Also, I've started weaning and the baby is happier too! She loves her food!

The best thing that happened so far was my beautiful daughter Livi's first birthday, which she celebrated by throwing lots of cake around!

Best thing is my gardens finally defrosted and I can sit and admire the scenery without frostbite

The best thing to happen to me this year has been finally finishing a drama topic at uni that I've really disliked and being told I did better than I thought I would!

The best thing to happen to me has been an exciting meeting with a charity who want me to do lego therapy with 2 groups of autistic children. I'll get money for helping these kids develop... something I love doing very much.

The best thing to happen to me so far this year is I have organised for a clothing company to donate all their faulty clothing to a romanian orphanage I visited last year. The children will be so happy in their shiny new clothes :) :)

The best thing to happen to me this year is watching my kitten, betty, fall down the gap between my bed and the wall. Repeatedly. And she's shocked and embarrassed every time.

January 2nd was the best. Me and my girfriend had an amazing spa day followed by an evening of cheese and wine. Followed by no work and a lie in on the 3rd.

Rock n roll!

The best thing for me this year is starting this year with a job I love, friends that care about me as much as I care about them and a new approach to life.

Best thing of 2011 is learning that the Government's not all about cuts, cuts, cuts. No, at least they're increasing VAT...that's good...right?

And after all that, the bestest part of 2011 has been to realise that you can't put tax on a smile....yet. :)

Maybe not the best thing, but definately the funniest thing so far was my daughter last week. My Mum and sister had come over and had to be on their way again, but when I said to Kara (full name Kara Elle - named after Supergirl) that it was time to kick them out, she stood up and kicked them both in the shin!

Needless to say, they were not impressed, although did see the funny side once I explained that we hadn't rehearsed the move at all. Clearly my two year old thinks the English language is a very silly one, and can't help but to take it literally! :D

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that after many lazy years of being rubbish at keeping in touch (and haveing a very mortal moment - trait of getting on in years!) I sent Christmas Cards to all those I had failed to keep up with and now reaping the rewards as letters and cards with years of news are dropping on the mat.

The best thing is surviving my first hill training session last night after 4 weeks of not doing exercise, there was strong winds and heavy rain at 11pm but I conquered the hills!

Happy New Year to innocent ^__^

The best thing to happen this year is that 2 beautiful baby girls have joined my little (but ever growing) family :)

Its only two weeks into the new year and the best thing happened to me is so unbeieveable I haven't even got the words to describe it!

But rest assured its been a dam good 2011 so far.

The best thing that happened to me this year was recovering from a bad case of chicken pox that I had over Christmas without a spot or scar in sight.

The best thing this year is being accepted a place in college to train as an embalmer - a complete career change but also a rewarding one, looking after families through a difficult time.

I bought a book off of eBay called "Random acts of kindness" by Danny Wallace and the chap who sent it me included a chocolate bar in the jiffy bag. See what he did there? HAHA

Best thing that has happened to me is my husband working part-time so he can spend more time with me and our baby daughter!

the best thing to happen so far this year was my birthday a few days ago. my children cooked me a very special meal with a homemade menu card.

The best thing that has happened so far this year is making dinosaur cookies with my housemates and boyfriend! There were, unfortunately, some casualties and lost limbs, but in the end they all made it out the oven and were tasty (and contained cherries, so they were a little bit healthy!)

I'm a teacher, and so far the best thing that's happened this year has been introducing my students to the many joys and wonders of muggle quidditch.

The best thing that's happened to me so far this year is in the space of 2 days I got told I'd won a gorgeous Le Creuset pan set and casserole worth almost £300 and a box set of The Good Life rrp £80! Life is sweet!

my son came home for a holiday for the first time since starting a new job in London. The house is so empty without him

The best thing that has happened to me was spending new year with my best friends and my lovely boyfriend :)

The best thing so far this year is the smile my five year old boy gives me when he tells me all about his day at school. Yesterday he told me its not fair god and Jesus get to live for ever. Last week it was that the first fruit created was a satsuma. I wonder what will it be today.
