2016 has been shit for me - 2 very close relatives including Mum died. I'm also a Remoaner and Trump hater. And Prince fan. Please tell me something great that happened this year!

Before I write 2016 off as a year of horrible, please tell me something good that happened to you in 2016. I lost my Mum and a cousin as dear to me as a sister- that is the pinnacle of horribleness for me. Although Brexit, Trump etc hasn't been something I cherish either.
I want to hear something heart warmingly good because I hate consigning a whole year to the dustbin.

Mine is consigned. Although I did manage to grow Yard Long Beans which i have been trying to do for years.

And i have just got a fab new job, starting in a week.

But the rest of 2016 has been shite. It started with Bowie going and went downhill from there.

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 16:43:48

Well done with the beans and Congrats with the new job.

TheGirlOnTheLanding Thu 24-Nov-16 16:44:02

It's been horrible. I also lost someone very dear to me, other friends have had serious illnesses and bereavements, and as for the political situation I feel close to despair. I think 2016 should go down as unremittingly shit. Sorry OP. Can't think of a single happy thought for you today.

TheGirlOnTheLanding Thu 24-Nov-16 16:47:32

And I'm so sorry for your losses.

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 16:47:47

My sympathies, Girl. It's been a lot shit all around.

FannyWisdom Thu 24-Nov-16 16:53:30

Yup been a bad un for me too.


FizzBombBathTime Thu 24-Nov-16 16:53:45

Doherty is off the smack

Ed balls happened

Tay Tay finally got her comeuppance

Kikipie Thu 24-Nov-16 16:58:26

I know globally it's been shit but personally it's been good, my husband was very fortunate earlier in the year, which was a huge surprise, so we have been very lucky

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 17:02:51

Fanny, I would give that poor cow a hug. It even "dabbed" at the end.

I'm by nature a bit of a miserablist but this year has been so shit, I am trying to fight it.

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 17:04:22

Kiki, that's great to hear. Enjoy your good fortune, I'm really glad the Dementors haven't struck everywhere.

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 17:05:30

Fizz, my dd loves Taytay. I can't tell her about the silliness.

FannyWisdom Thu 24-Nov-16 17:06:31

I love the cow. It's like weird meditation.

I'm just writing this year off now. Fuck it, 2017 I will be the cow!

Ed Balls on Strictly and the return of Clarkson, Hammond and May on the Grand Tour have both cheered me up a lot.

And this is a nice story I read the other day, about a tiger from a derelict zoo in Palestine moved to a massive new enclosure in South Africa:

Yawnyawnallday Thu 24-Nov-16 17:15:07

Not an Ed fan but liking GT. That tiger story is lovely.

This made me laugh - do NOT click on if you are easily offended, (or at work!).

JellyBelli Thu 24-Nov-16 17:29:41

The video TheresAGhostYouFools posted is the only good thing to happen this year.
