    To go about someone's day

    When someone tells me: 'go about your day', does it mean 'to do whatever you have to do along the day?

    Re: To go about someone's day

    Hi, besthost!

    The simple answer to your question is yes. A merchant might say, "Go about your day and I'll have your package ready for you by closing time." (Do what you have to do and your package will be ready by closing time.)

    Cheers,
    Amigo

    "Leave this casserole in the oven on a very low heat, go about your day, and when you come home, a hearty meal will be ready for all the family."

    Put it in the oven before you go out, do what you normally do of a day, and when you come home...
