Mother Tongue

Not having someone to properly and regularly speak my L1 (Iban) with here makes it a bit rusty now. I hate having to struggle finding the right words when calling home (read:grandma).  Well you see, grandma doesn't speak English so I can't expect her to understand the English word that I've failed to find the L1 equivalent at that moment. Sometimes I have to stop for a second before continuing with my story with her. Such disappointment it is. I just wish the awkwardness is not there once I'm back home.
