this week and some thoughts on this blog

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to start this post by sharing some real mummy stuff, but truth be told it's kind of the most exciting thing which has happened this week (makes you understand how this week has been kind of low key!!)

Matilde has started using her potty!

There, I said it. Feel free to unfollow me, if I have gone way out of my usual topics. Anyway, if you have children you will probably know what a joy and relief it is. Now I'm just wondering if we will manage to use the two and a half giant boxes of Pampers which I bought with a discount at the supermarket 10 days ago...

Besides a walk in the centro on Tuesday to do some shopping + a quick lunch at Chiaroscuro  (oh, and a morning spent at Giardino dell'Orticoltura and the Orti di Parnaso), we have mostly been home. We have a real big blue plastic swimming pool on the balcony now and it is a great success, so why leave home?

Tomorrow we'll be heading to Rome for a teeny tiny vacation. I'm not sure, but I actually think it's been almost one year since I was there the last time. I can't wait to walk the streets again, have dinner outside with my friends and who knows, maybe even do some shopping. I am going to take so many photos.

Until I'm back you can follow me on Instagram, where I will definitely be bombarding you with Roman details. That city is made for Instagram!

I'm not sure I should share this, but I'm kind of spontaneous today, so here goes: I'm a bit uncertain about this blog these days. Maybe you have sensed it in the quality of my posts, but over the past weeks I've felt like I've been blogging more out of obligation than passion. It definitely has something to do with the fact that I haven't had the time, which has made every single post a bit stressful, but it's not just that.

Understand me right, I would never quit blogging. I love this space so much, but I think I may soon change it a bit into something slightly different. I imagine a more personal blog based more on my everyday life and photography than on city guides. What would you think about this?

However, for now I will continue as usual, also because I already have some posts lined up ready to be written for you and I'm planning some things from Rome as well. But maybe in a near future A DUSTY OLIVE GREEN will change - just a little bit.

I would love to hear your comments, especially what kind of posts you prefer to read.

In between being a mum, cooking, doing grocery shopping and translations, sleeping and eating, this week I managed to finally organize my photos properly on my computer, and I have now started the last back up, which will make me up to date with everything. It feels so good.

Today we will probably go for a walk. I need to buy a belated birthday present for my mum, and temperatures actually seem to be human, so one better take advantage SUBITO :-)

Enjoy your Sunday!

Ps: Just ordered three discounted copies of 3191 Quarterly. Do you know it? If you enjoy Kinfolk and Cereal this may also be something for you.


  1. I haven't been reading your blog for too long (just found you recently and glad I did!) but I like personal blogs, so I think that if it would bring the passion back to blogging to change it up a little, you should!

    1. Thanks a lot for your comment, Jessica. I agree that personal is good :-) Just writing this post actually brought back the joy of blogging :-)
