Hi Mihael,
'What did you get up to at the weekend?' is just another way of asking 'What did you do at the weekend?'
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglishTeens Team)

I spent this weekend with my family. It was very amazing. On Saturday we decorated the Christmas Tree, than we sang Christmas carols. We really have such a custom before a New Year and Christmas Eve. On Sunday all my family went to the church to pray. Than we rested and watched films and played different games. It was very nice days!!!
