The only touristy thing we saw today because of the cold.

This morning was freezing!! We started the day with a hot breakfast and after a few minutes outside decided that it was too cold to be a tourist outside. So instead we spent the day in the shopping centres. Just after midday it started to lightly snow. We were excited. Jess started chatting to a woman at a skincare counter. She told us that if the weather gets a bit bad the train services are cancelled. This worried us- we didn't want to spend another night here, so we went to the hostel, got our backpack and went to the train station.
The trains were already affected by the snow on the tracks near London. We caught the train for most of the way back, then had to go on a bus for 20 minutes and then back on the train.
When I got out of the tube station at Walthamstow, there was snow everywhere. It had started to settled. Looked lovely.
