The best thing that has happened to me this year was a visit form the lovely local (Birmingham) Innocent lady, who brought 6 veg pots to our office for me and my colleagues.

The best thing that has happened to me this year is that I was able to combat my usual January blues by spending the first week of the month in New York with my three best friends who I haven't seen in years. We ate, we drank, we walked around a very snowy Central Park, we saw a Broadway show... it was Heaven, and it made me so grateful to have such amazing friends.

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is that despite a massive food and drink binge in December, I mamanged to run all the way around the park the other day without keeling over!

The best thing already about 2011 is realising how lucky I am. I've fought off the flu and my wonderful boyfriend takes me training so I've just tucked into a cinnamon danish without a care in the world. Only every now and then of course but what could be better?!

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is my absolutely scruffy (but lovely) boyfriend of 2 years announcing that he is finally going to clear out all of his years of junk and re-decorate (including getting rid of his football carpet), and actually doing it! He is cleared out and we're getting out the sugar soap and rollers today.

(if you want to know what it did look like, look up the Friends episode 'the one with the dirty girl'.)

Getting down a really difficult mountain biking section on my girly pink bike... while most of the guys I was with who wouldn't do it watched from the bottom. Respect :-)

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is that I have flown a Boeing 737 for the first time! I have been trying to become a professional pilot since 2006 and finally 2011 looks like it might be the year. Here's hoping the rest of the year continues to be as good as the first two weeks x

The best thing that has happend to me so far in 2011 was discovering i dont have to eat meat to have a really good filling and satysfying meal, thanks to the lovely people of Goa India and of cousre Innocent Veg Pots - Hurrah!

The best thing that has happened so far in this shiny new year has been the prospect of everything getting even better in the year :)

The best thing that has happened to me so far in this shiney New Year is that after my brother accidently locked my car keys in my car last week (it broke down on Christmas eve and he was trying to mend it for me!), I rang around all the locksmiths and breakdown cover companies I could find to try to get a good deal on retreiving them for me but then managed to hook them out myself with some clever operation-style wire coathanger stunt!! Happiest moment in ages, I jumped around the road with my keys in tow for a good 5 minutes!!!

I finally caved and bought that fleece panda costume purely for comfy house lounging & snuggly betimes. It's for the greater good, I promise.

My husband - after a severe fall and a very swollen ankle and leg he has only sprained and severely bruised ankle and leg not the serious break that we all thought

Hey, I had a call from garden designer Graham Bodle, He is going to have my "flock-follies" funky bird feeders featured in his show garden at Chelsea Flower show in May. How fab is that? very exited!!

Finally feeling well after being ill since Bonfire night with Pneumonia! Also our car was written off in the floods, so Jan 2011 cannot be worse than the end of 2010.
After missing every single party (including my Dad's 70th birthday) and event I have a life back! But my fitness has suffered and any help to keep motivated and eat healthily would be much appreciated!

Making lasagne and spending quality family time playing Justdance before I go back to uni. Also getting to see my boyfriend for more than two days at a time is sweeter than pineapple.

Going to Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park to see Bon Jovi with big Sis and her other half. Roll on June. Meanwhile mum and dad will be babysitting!

The best thing to have happened this shiny new year is delivering a shiny new baby into the world during my first placement on a labour ward, the only problem is the shifts are throwing my eating patterns out and making me pile on the weight, please innocent save my waistline!

The best thing to happen to me this year (so far) has been that last night I finally applied to college! It feels fantastic. After 2 years of floating around unsure of what to do, I'm still unsure but I am doing something! I'm probably going to hate dragging myself to classes by the second week but it'll be worth it if I stick it out.

the best thing about any year is when you live with someone you can play 'get the fly' with; hands behind your back, plate full of flour with a little tiny sultana hidden inside. for me this playmate is my boyfriend, and he always insists on jaegarbombs afterwards. i insist on tequila shots first, and usually people pop round during. i dont know how to explain my social life.

The best thing that happened to me so far this year...is finding out I'm going to have a nephew! Hooray for baby clothes shopping. =)

Best thing was Skypeing my lovely wife who is currently in Australia just as she got out of the shower...

The best thing that's happened to us this year is sorting a lovely caterer for our wedding, which looked like it was going to be doomed - soups with dry ice to make them look like they're smoking; edible flowers and eggs that have ganache inside when you break them. How amazing is our reception going to be!

Finally being in a position to take our business forward in the direction that we want. Oh, and not eating my body weight in chocolates over the festive period!

Being on track to beat my new year's resolution to eat my body weight in chocolate by the end of the year...if not before.

The BEST thing that has happened to me this shiny new year,
is choosing to live a life without fear,
to take opportunities when they appear,

Watson asks "Sherlock, what have you done?"

Sherlock replies "It's a lemon entry my dear Watson"

The best thing to happen to me this year is coming to terms with the fact that I am never going to be a gym bunny! Now I can do fun things with the money I usually waste every January on fancy never-to-be-worn-more-than-once gym gear and accessories. Maybe I'll spend it all on cakes.

This year has been spiffing already and the best thing to happen to me has been the pinic that i was taken on last wek and the sun was shinning and the food was delious!! Winter picnic really are the best!

The best thing is that I can take voluntary redundancy from my local council job, so I can spend 3 days a week doing what I want to do, rather than staring at a computer wondering 'why am I here' Hopefully it will be a healthy, stress-free 2011. Give us a little help with one of your boxes please

The best thing to happen this year is my abandonment of 'resolutions' - instead, I'm relishing the leftover chocolates, and am going to continue to eat them until they're all gone, THEN I'll join the swim team and get fit again. I revel in rebelling against the media's pressure to get me thin within a week of New Year!

We got the first thank you letter from our granddaughter that she had been able to write by herself. Magic. She is, of course, the most talented 5 year old ever!!

The best thing to happen to me this shinty new year was deciding to give it all up to become a Zoo Keeper. This time next year I'll be up to my armpits in Slow Loris' and Tapirs!

Guffawing with my Dad, who has the same laugh as me, but louder.
I'm going to train to be a Laughter Yoga instructor for my honeymoon this August, so it's superb practice! May 2011 be full of laughter for all!

I hope the rest of the year turns out to be as good.

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year was getting broken into on Bank Holiday Monday - I realised that I don't need a "man who can", as I actually CAN do it myself - I fitted bolts and padlocks to my garden gate and back door with the big drill thingy my Mum bought me for Christmas in 2004 (unused until now as I was scared of it!) and didn't muck it up...it's done my confidence the world of good after a pretty rotten 2010!‏ (but if you want to let me have Joe instead of a winner's pack I wouldn't say no... ;) hehe)

The best thing to happen to me this year has got to be... Getting told that I got a year long placement with Kew Gardens to do conservation biotechnology. I actually jumped in the air after the phone call I was so happy!

The best thing so far this year is getting a whole new batch of leave from work to use up

The best that's happened to me this year is getting back to uni so I could see my boyfriend and finally open that Christmas present. It was the new Professor Layton game and I've know that since the start of Dec. Finally got to play it!

My best thing so far happened yesterday. I went to make myself a cup of tea, but was horrified to discover I'd run out of tea bags. Just at that moment, as I was facing the horrifying prospect of an evening without tea, the doorbell rang. To my relief, it was the Tesco delivery man with a fresh supply of tea bags. Disaster averted.

The best thing that has happened to me this year was an epiphany.

it came yesterday while i was playing rounders in p.e. i was thinking about your new tv advert, (really, i was:). ) when i realised that smoothies are more than just a passion of mine, they are my life. i love them to pieces. i was so inspired that i managed to hit the ball really far and get a home run, but i was so caught up in my own little world (i like to call it innocent island) that i wasn't lookiong where i was going, ran intop a wall and broke my wrist. i was comforted shortly afterwards by my favourite smoothie, innocent strawberry and banana:).

The best thing that has happened to me so far this year is I got to sign for a beautiful house to share with my uni friends from July and spend my second year in :)
