• Anna, you said you were going to pick mum up from her doctor’s appointment on Thursday.
  • Well there’s no need to now- I can do it.
  • Are you sure?
  • I thought you had to work.
  • No, well, my meeting’s been postponed so I won’t be going into the office till later.
  • I’m dropping mum off,
  • so I can get a coffee and get her when she’s ready.
  • Oh, that’d be great.
  • Yeah,
  • I know you've got enough on your plate at the moment,
  • you've got enough on your plate
    "you've got enough on your plate"は"you have a lot of work to do"の意味。「やるべきことが沢山ある」
  • so you don’t have to add that to your list!
  • Ah, I never mind doing stuff for mum.
  • stuff
  • I can always squeeze it in!
  • I know you can, but still,
  • it makes more sense that I do both drop off and pick up.
  • Ok, that’s fine then.
  • Thanks a million!
