Hi Haithama!

Let's break the sentence down into 3 parts to make sense of it.

"You've put the dusting and the dishes" is referring to a housework activity (dusting and washing the dishes).

"On the back burner" is an idiomatic phrase that means to make something a lesser priority, to delay it or procrastinate the activity. It means it will get done later.

"Until you send out invitations in English" means until after the invitations in English have been sent out.

So, the dusting and dishes will get done after the English invitations have been sent out.

Thank you for your question and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks and good luck!

Kind regards,

Gabriella
