Now, I don’t normally come in every Saturday and if I’m at home I don’t normally work on Saturdays either. But I decided to come into the office today to catch up on a few things, ok, to catch up on a few things.

Now, to catch up on something means to do something that you haven’t had time to do – something that you probably need to do but you haven’t had time to do. So, for example, I’m going to catch up on emails now. So, I’m going to read the emails people have sent me over the past two days and reply to those emails. Another example is this: now, my wife sometimes watches TV shows that we both want to watch. So, let’s say we watch episode one together.She might watch episodes 2, 3, 4 etc without me. So, I say to her: wait I need to catch up on the show before we watch episode five. I need to catch up on the show before we watch episode five.
