I married Brent Gardiner on 7th August 2004.
first met Brent when we briefly talked in a trivia channel #gabriel
on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) in August 2002 and we became online
friends in January 2003 by chatting daily whilst playing the online
trivia questions game.
Topic of conversation at the time was usually The World Cup Cricket, which was being played in South Africa with the Australian cricket team winning.
In April 2003 Brent flew from New Zealand to Western Australia to meet me and we became engaged in May 2003. Brent flew back to NZ in August and then I visited him in December with my mother. Brent showed us many scenic locations on the North Island for a week and then Mum and I travelled the South Island and came back to Australia just before Christmas 2003.
A few weeks later Brent flew back to Geraldton and re-proposed to me on Australia Day (26 January) and on Valentines Day we set our wedding date for 7 August 2004.
So, it all
happened ! we got married :)

SPECIAL THANKS TO
friend Dominik, from Germany, who got me started with this
webpage. Dominik designed the Welcome to CarbonC's IRC Addiction
(which was the original website), Link buttons and assisted with the hyperlinks. Without his help this website wouldn't have been started.
To all the friends I have met as a result of internet connections, thanks for being a friend to me !
PLEASE NOTE: Some links are empty... such as, Kalbarri, Jokes and Games. you will just get the under construction sign if you click on them.. One day I will upload to them, but for now, all the other links should work fine.
site was created originally about 1998
