I've been noticing lately that my brain seems to default to Welsh when I'm confused about which language to use
We have guests over from Italy at the moment. Would be a good opportunity for me to practice my Italian, but I've been asked to help one of them practice speaking English. The past few days have been pretty confusing! I've been trying but failing to speak Finnish and Italian with my mother, Italian with my Italian friend, English with that friend's mother, Finnish and English with a Finnish friend and Spanish to both the Italian friends. I don't have trouble switching between languages but remembering who I'm supposed to speak what with is difficult.
At the airport we start in Italian to greet each other, then talk about switching to English. I ask, still in Italian, if she would like to switch now. She says "Yes" in English, to which I respond with "Iawn". Cymraeg. They look at me in confusion and I realise I have just said it in Welsh
I've also started sentences in Welsh a few times, and said "da iawn" to the friend practicing English...
I think Welsh has started feeling more natural than Italian... That feels weird! I might soon speak Welsh better than I speak my native language
