Having read my supervisors’ feedback on my work, it seems 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 (without a deadline!) 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 we 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 many recipes of savoury pea muffins online and tried one of them today. My muffins didn’t taste bad, but they did not rise well. Maybe I added too many peas. But more than anything else, I am very happy to try this recipe and to have such a relaxing and peaceful weekend.
