How can I politely tell someone in Portuguese that I am busy, have been busy with work, without using the word "ocupado," which to me sounds rude? I want to write a sentence like:
I have been busy with work and my hobby of photography.
I don't quite understand if you feel that to say you are 'busy' is rude, why if you say you are 'atarefado' is less rude?. ( Atarefado- cheia de tarefas- lots of things to do = busy.)
What would you say in English, if you didn't want to say busy but that's what you want to say?
