Here's the question

where did you go on the holiday?

Nowhere. I stayed home and did some overdue job/task/work/....

Overdue is not necessary here, other words may fit. I want to talk about unspecified things like doing some cleaning and doing my homework and so on.

Another example:

What do you want to do on the weekend?

I'm going to stay home and........

The phrase you may be looking for might begin with "catching up on" and then include

work around the house
chores around the house
odd jobs around the house
odd tasks around the house

and the always unspecified

stuff

So you might have

I'm going to stay home and catch up on work around the house.
I'm going to stay home and catch up on chores around the house.
I'm going to stay home and catch up on odd jobs around the house.
I'm going to stay home and catch up on odd tasks around the house.
I'm going to stay home and catch up on stuff.

  • Great answer. Can I use this verb phrase with class assignments and homework as well? – Masih K Sep 23 '18 at 5:47
  • @MasihK Yes, you can. You can "catch up" on any task that you feel you are behind on. – HiddenBabel Sep 23 '18 at 6:37
