I haven't had much going through my head this week.
I still have moments where I suddenly feel incredibly sleepy. Sunday night for instance, the TV was on and I was doing a code-cracker puzzle, feeling a bit sleepy, yawning, then suddenly I was waking up and thinking I should go to bed. Turned off the TV and went to bed, don't remember falling asleep there at all, just woke up next morning to find the puzzle book open on the table with a puzzle unfinished.
It's new Ikea catalogue month again, advertisements on TV telling people to cover up their "no junk mail" stickers if they want an Ikea catalogue dropped into their mailbox.
Hah! That didn't work for me last year.
I covered my sticker with duct tape and even sent an email saying that I lived in a block of flats but would still like a catalogue, gave them my address and received an email in reply stating that I would definitely receive a catalogue.
So last Monday, I was going to Ikea to buy a birthday present for my great-nephew who will be one year old in a couple of weeks, and decided that I would pick up a catalogue while I'm there.
Had a quick look for one before heading to the cafe section before shopping, but couldn't see any, so made a mental note to ask for a catalogue when checking out.
Should I email and request one? That didn't work last year...
I could flip through the catalogue online, but that's not as much fun as having real pages to turn and make notes on.
Here's another problem I'm facing since recovering from the flu.
I just don't want to.
I've had several meals from the freezer, and I've eaten things like scrambled eggs on toast, baked beans on toast, pancakes, toasted sandwiches. None of which is truly satisfying when I want steak and a baked potato, or a roast chicken dinner.
If only I felt in the mood to cook.
I know I will eventually, I just hope it happens sooner rather than later.
Now take note of my previous sentence. See that? "...sooner rather than later."
"than", not "then".
than is the correct word, yet time and again I see then used in its place.
And I cringe every time.
