Relaxing Weekend

Having read my supervisors’ feedback on my work, it seems that I have managed to get over the first hurdle of my PhD studies.

Now I can finally relax a bit.

This morning, I read a novel and ironed our 14 work shirts. (After noticing that I was doing housework, Luca started cleaning the whole bathroom.)

After ironing, I baked Cheese and Pea Muffins which I have wanted to make. When Luca and I travelled to Venice in April, we were invited to a lunch party at his relative’s house. His cousin’s wife made us the pea muffins for a starter, which was really, really delicious. When we were about to leave at the end of the party, she gave me the rest of the muffins. We had the muffins with champagne at our accommodation for dinner.

I found some recipes of savoury pea muffins online and tried one of them today. My muffins didn’t taste bad, but they did not rise well.

More than anything else, I am happy to have had such a relaxing and peaceful weekend.
