Phrasal Verbs Reading

The following text contains 10 highlighted phrasal verbs. Your task is to match them to the correct definitions.

During the week I always have to get up early for work so on Sunday I love to wake up late, usually around 9am and then get up 30 minutes later.

The first thing I do is switch on the coffee maker. No instant coffee for me today! On Sundays I always take the time to make some good coffee. While that's getting ready, I quickly throw on some clothes and pick up a newspaper from the local shop.

With my coffee and paper, I spend the rest of the morning on the sofa. Sometimes I even turn off my phone for a couple of hours so no one calls me.

Later in the day, I like to hang out with friends over lunch and catch up with their news and gossip. It's always nice to drive out to the countryside for a pub-lunch in a quiet English pub.

In the evenings I'll either stay in and watch some TV or, depending what's on, I'll check out a film in the cinema.

All in all, that's my idea of a good day!
