Downes Syndrome Day.

Please watch and pass on . Sending my love out to all Mums with extra special children. Sorry it is late I didn’t know it was Downes Syndrome Day.

Essence Day 22

Today has been a day full of Spring promise, the temperature though higher than of late is still very chilly. Blue skies and bright light, washing dancing on the line. I dare not hope yet as I have been told another drastic temperature drop is on its way for Easter! 😱😱

But this prompt gave me a great deal of difficulty, for Carrot cake is not an old variety of cake, it is very modern being first recorded in the early twentieth century (1903 to be precise). So what was I to do, clearly I had to mix carrots with another sort of cake, in this case a phrase (also modern, dating from 1538 – I am an archaeologist and for us modern, technically early modern begins in 1485).
