Mixing up languages

After six days of giving training in German, I am not able to speak normally any more. What really killed me was not speaking German, but the little things I did in the breaks: talking with my colleagues (Spanish), ordering in the restaurant (Catalan), answering some e-mails (English & Dutch), reading documentation (Italian)…
To much switching languages combined with a little bit of tiredness and I start mixing up everything! This lunchtime I told the waiter that I wanted a table for _drei_ persons. I need a rest, and fortunately for me, Lleida celebrates its _Festa Major_ this Friday, so my week is almost finished.
