Yep fancy that!

Ok I've been telling people if you wanna know anything about me then you need to read this blog. Today was yet another beautiful Nelson day although a little windy. Today I spent the day with Shellz! We visited Uncle Graeme and Aunty Jan, went to the Mall (centre of it all) for lunch and to look around, and then went to the new swimming pool complex. $5 entry and then we enjoyed the wave pool, the lap pool, and the adult spa pool. Worth a visit if you havent been! Then we killed a couple of hours playing on shellz new PXT phone I bought her as an early Christmas present. Then the mystery part of the day. I had got a picnic hamper from Aunty Jan and so we went to the supermarket and bought a few scrummy items to put in it. Then we drove into Nelson and parked on the waterfront. Shellz couldnt figure out where we were going to eat our picnic!! We walked onto the wharf and met the skipper of the Haulashore Island ferry. We climbed on board his little boat and he took us across to the boulder bank where he gave us a key for the lighthouse. We walked to the lighthouse and climbed the stairs to the top, 60ft up. Here we climbed out a little hatch onto the balcony and sat in the sun and ate our picnic. It's a beautiful spot. Anyway to cut the story short for those of you sick of it being drawn out-- I asked Shellz to be my girlfriend and she said, "Of course"! We had a rougher ride back in the boat and got a little wet which made it all the more fun! Then went out to Harley and Dee's engagement party. A fun day for me and I know I will sleep with a smile on my face tonight!! Thanks Shellz!
