    You can change your mind of not to cook later if you feel tired.

    Hi All,

    Events:
    - My wife promise me to cook later in the evening.
    - She look tired at the moment.

    I told her that "You can change your mind of not to cook later if you feel tired."

    Is the sentence that inside "" correct.

    I really want to have a better English, please correct anything that is wrong.
    Thank you

    It means "delete that". We don't use "that" in direct speech/quotes.
