Now that 2017 has had a bit of time to bed in I thought I'd look ahead to what 2017 has in store for me. Despite 2016 being widely acknowledged as fairly awful, on a personal level I had a good year. I got to see lots of new places and do things I never thought I would like tearing around a mountain bike trail or standing in a damp field for 24 hours supporting guys racing. It turns out that I really quite enjoy doing both things so I'm hoping that 2017 will see me do more of that. Jon and I have a biking weekend planned for the end of May and I've got my eye on Swinley Forest as the blue trail there is immense fun. Jon has lots of races this year so there are lots of events planned in the diary when I'll be called on to throw energy gels at him and give him the odd kick up the bum to keep him going.

Later in the year we're buying our first house together. I've pretty much always moaned about being out of Cardiff so the fact that I'm moving even further away probably seems a bit odd, but for now it's the only way Jon and I will be able to be together without one of us changing jobs.

So far we have two holidays planned, one next month to the Lake District to celebrate his birthday and another in April to go up to Edinburgh. Jon has only ever been there for a stag do so I'm not counting that as a proper trip, whereas I absolutely adore Edinburgh so I'm looking forward to going back and seeing more of the city.

On a more personal level, I'm hoping to come off Roaccutane as I've been on it for nearly a year. I'd like to get fit as I feel like the end of 2016 left me feeling slow and lethargic. I'm back in Cardiff for a few months until the summer so I want to get out on my bike more, hopefully commuting to work a few days a week and I really want to get back to zumba as I love dancing as a way to get fit.

I'm also hoping that this year I'll stick to blogging, last year I was terrible at it. Even if it's once a week, hopefully you'll see more of me in 2017.
