Dear Tutors,Emotion: smile

I would like to use "catch up" to say that I'm still behind in my work.
Can I say it this way "With work, I haven't caught up yet?"

Catch up: (DO SOMETHING) phrasal verb
To do something you did not have time to do earlier
She's staying late at the office to catch up with/on some reports.

Thanks in advance....

It's usually used with 'on'. We spent hours on the phone catching up on all the gossip. I need to catch up the work at the office. 'With' is used in a more physical sense: you go ahead, I'll catch up with you later.

This is not set in stone. Others may have other ideas/suggestions.

I would have put the "with" phrase later:

I haven't caught up with all my work yet.

Or you could phrase it as:

I still have to catch up on a lot of work.
OR I still have a lot of work to catch up on.
(not to be confused with "a lot of work to put ketchup on" Emotion: smile )

"caught up" without a following "on" or "with" doesn't seem idiomatic to me.
