I’ve been very quiet on insta recently, mainly because all my energy has been going into churning out hundreds of these little towers of joy!

At last! Through, locks, lightning and all sorts of limitations they’ve made it back from Oban. Celebrated with bubbly that was gifted to us at Christmas (thank you Helen Berry!) It’s so so so good to have them back ⛵️🎉 Phew! #covidreunion #conwy #lifeisgood ❤️

After last weeks reaction to the savoury scones, I thought I’d do some more - Smoked bacon, welsh cheddar and Gouda. They make an amazing treat for brecci 😋

In March, my parents had a choice. Stay on their boat for lockdown or come home. They chose the boat, not foreseeing that they’d still be there weeks and months later.
As soon as they were allowed, they set off to bring the boat home and after nearly 22 weeks of separation we should be reunited on Monday! To say we are excited is, well I’m sure you all know.
Mum has been keeping herself sane by knitting - a lot. As a result, @findmeknitting and I are going to have some exiting new stock. These beautiful sheep carousel tea cosies will be available as soon as they hit the shore 🙂
Giant family barbecue shots to follow... ⛵️👏🏻🔥

Goodness me, how different life is from last week!
This is the only picture I managed of our gourmet toasties, they were flying out so fast. Thanks to the incredible @trefriw_bakehouse for the most important element, the sourdough.
We’re going home now for a cider in the sun and a rest day tomorrow. Then we’re going to decide what to do next week. We’ll be back for sure, maybe for more hours. Watch this space 😉 Thanks so much to everyone for turning up and being so respectful within the courtyard. Stars you are ✨

We have a nice bit of shelter if it’s raining... it’s raining 🌧

Thanks again to everyone who came by today and made life feel vaguely normal. It was so much fun, we’ll be back tomorrow from 10am!
Also, home-made ice pops have been going down a storm!

Well, what a day! It was so lovely to be back in the courtyard with the sun shining and so many happy faces! Thanks to everyone who visited.
We have a new menu (which I swear I took a photo of but 🤷🏼♀️, so tomorrow) with some yummy new additions and some old favourites to keep you coming back.
@findmeknitting are next door, same opening hours, so you can squish yarn while you’re visiting too!
Opening hours for now will be Thursday to Sunday 10-3.
Come and try an ice lolly!!!

It’s hot hot hot in Conwy today and my matchy matchy new @keepcup lid arrived this morning! Now I can head to work safe in the knowledge that my morning panad will coordinate perfectly with the #tinytearoom 😂

The stuff of joy
They do Baklava too 🤤
@whitebakeryltd You’ve made the cabin fever bearable in the Yates household ❤️ Thank you
Inspired by our @whitebakeryltd pick-up today. Dinner outside, mezze style ☀️
I was gifted this @simplenaturalhandmade hook by @findmeknitting after we’d been to @riverknitsuk open day and visited the @provenance.craft.co stall (I think that’s everyone tagged 😜).
I finally happened upon a pattern that needed a 4mm hook and decided to give it a try.
Honestly, this is the nicest hook I’ve ever used. It’s a joy in every way; perfect fit in the hand, smooth as you like, great hook end and beautiful to look at. And that’s completely disregarding the fact that it comes in a Harry Potter wand style box!
I’m already looking for more 4mm projects so I can keep using it, or maybe I should be adding to my hook collection 😜
The big boy has been busy.
Sourdough doughnuts, only to 36 hours start to finish 😂
Definitely my favourite corner of the garden. I just need to crochet some bunting and it will incorporate all my loves #emptyginbottle #randomornaments #candles #cookingwithherbs #suculents #localslate #crochet
Little veggie update - everything is getting stronger and bigger but I think the kale has bolted. Maybe the soil was too rich? 🤷🏼♀️
So, the journey is finished, I have travelled through Sophie’s Universe. And what a beautiful universe it is. Expertly created by @barbertondaisy and loved by very many others out there. I can’t say how pleased I am with the final result, stunningly shown off in @cambrian_wool colour pallet.
When we got married (15 years ago in July) my Granny bought us our bed, Sophie will now add to our story and keep us cosy on that bed 😍

Yates family happy place 🤫
Giving some hot crossed buns a go! Thanks to @ourtwoacres for posting this recipe. So far so good 🤞🏻

Today I have mostly been making butterflies!
And walking, a bit 🧶🚶🏻♀️🧶

I’m feeling a bit meh this afternoon. It’s really starting set in now, not seeing people is hard when that’s what you do for a living every day. I can’t help thinking about how lovely the first week of the holidays would have been in our little courtyard with all this sunshine.
Ho hum, nothing can be done.
Back to #sophiesuniverse and dreaming of future times in the #tinytearoom
This whole ‘veg bed’ thing started because I needed to rescue my strawberries from under some ruffian Spanish bluebells that we’re threatening to strangle them. So, after two weeks and numerous other plantings, seed tray making and general jobbing, I finally made two extra beds and moved the strawberries 😂😂😂 #whenyoustartonejobandanothertakesover #covidentertainment #gladilikegardening #conwy #stayhome
These beauties should have been greeting you all outside the shop on your holidays this week. Instead, they are greeting our incredibly hard working postie who has arrived with a smile everyday that we’ve been home. Are we allowed to give them cake...? #stayhomestaysafe #visitwaleslater #tinytearoom #lifeonhold #bigupthekeyworkers
An experiment. I jumped out of the van and grabbed some seedlings from @mcilveen_spar yesterday. I’ve put the stinger looking leeks straight out and some of the smaller ones in a pot to go in the ‘green house’ (back porch!). I have read conflicting advice as to whether I should be planting them out yet. So, we’ll see 🤔
First two days of true isolation have been productive... We are so lucky to have a garden that we’ve wanted to work on for such a long time. If anyone is less lucky and needs our help, we are available, we are more than willing, just ask 🔥❤️
Extra special treat for Mother’s Day tonight 😍
I’m feeling very sad today. It’s been so hard to try and make any sort of decision as to what I can do in our current situation. I had such a lovely day on Sunday, welcoming everyone back and just being back in my little space. Now though, I just can’t afford to keep coming up everyday to no customers and now I will have two boys at home full time and in need of some sort of routine and guidance. For now, I don’t think I have any choice but to put my little shop to bed for a while and go and be Mum at home. Thanks to everyone who’s turned up this week and graced me with your lovely smiles. I’ll be back...
I had just bought a beautiful new cake mixer too 😕

First three parts of my #sophiesuniverseblanket done and I am totally in love with the way @cambrian_wool is working up! The colours are just perfect for this project. I can’t wait to stop and do a bit every day ❤️
