    soft

    Would you say, 'On the weekend, I did soft things' to mean that you did informal and entertaining things?

    Re: soft

    You could say you had a "laid back" weekend.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: soft

    Or you had "a chilled weekend".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
