Traditionally, Christmas Day is spent with family, so I thought I’d hook up with my only family here since I wasn’t going back to London. I ended up spending Christmas Day with my cousin and his family in Torrance.
I thought I’d challenge his kids to some Nintendo Wii games while I was there. I’m a game designer – surely they can’t beat me, I was wrong. They did beat me.
My excuse – I don’t have a Wii, besides, I let them win.
Unlike the UK, the US doesn’t have a public holiday (Boxing Day) straight after, but luckily Christmas Day fell on a weekend this year, so naturally we get the Monday off work which I will be going for a dim sum at a restaurant, then back home later.
