2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! 

As it is already the second day of 2017, I thought I better start to think about what I want to get out of this year. I am determined to make something of this blog and myself in the next 12 months!

2017 is starting off with another huge change in my life, but a happier one to last year. My husband is starting a new job, which is going to have him away from home up to 12 weeks at a time. This is going to be a massive adjustment for me, and of course him, because I am so used to having him around and someone in the house. Also I will miss him!

Although there are a few down sides to the new role, one of the main up sides is the opportunities it opens up for me. It is going to give me a chance to grow more as a person because I will not have any excuse now. I will have to drive myself places! Most importantly though I will be able to do a lot more traveling and have more adventures. This all in turn helps with the blog! Hopefully all of this will help make 2017 one of the best years in a while!

While on the subject of adventures and making the most of 2017. This leads nicely into my goals for the next 12 months, both blog related and personal. 2017 for me is going to be the year I really want to start working on it and getting myself out there, because my husbands new role was another reason for setting the blog up in 2016.  I thought it would be a good use of my evening - after I have been to the gym! - and it would give me something to concentrate on and hopefully give lots of opportunities to meet new people. 

With all this in mind here are my blog and personal goals for 2017:


  • Become healthier (and lose weight) 
  • Go to the gym 3 times a week at a minimum 
  • Be able to do a hand/head stand
  • Be more positive and confident (Stop using the word hopefully after this post!)
I will review all of the goals on June 5th, to see if I am still sticking to them and adjust any as required. 

So this just leaves me to pack for my first adventure of 2017, which is a trip back home to Cardiff! 


  1. Well if you fancy an adventure.. you are always welcome to come and see us up in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.... maybe climb a hill or two too... x

    1. Thank you for the offer I will keep it in mind :)

  2. Good luck on your 2017 adventures, goals and dreams. I can't wait to see your adventures throughout the year!

Norwegian Fjords 2015

A while back I said I would post something about the cruise I went on back in June 2015 but alas nothing was posted - sorry!

As I didn't do anything back then, I thought I would write something about it now as I am on a roll...

30 things to do before 30!

So it is my birthday weekend and that means one step closer to the big 30! So I thought that I would make a list of 30 things I would like to do before I hit 30. (FYI I have 3 years). Although remember that numbers do not matter and you are only as old as you feel and/or act.

Here goes and they are in no particular order:
