"I went back home to get my umbrella when it started to rain on my way to work " and "While I was making my way to work it started to rain and so I went home to get my umbrella."are adequate ways to explain what happened.
"I went back home to get my umbrella when it started to rain on my way to work "
傘を取りに帰宅しました。なぜなら、仕事に行く途中に雨が降ってきたからです。

"While I was making my way to work it started to rain and so I went home to get my umbrella."
仕事に行く途中に雨が降ってきたので傘を取りに戻りました。
これらは何が起きたかを説明する適切な表現です。

  • Five minutes after leaving the house to get to work, it began to rain so I went back home to get an umbrella.

  • Shortly after leaving the house to get to work, it began to rain so I went back home to get an umbrella. I was so lucky!

Luckily= this adverb means ''because of good luck.
Anyway= I used this word to continue the ''story'' as I interrupted the story by adding the sentence ''I was walking to work''.
Wasn't= contraction of WAS + NOT.
Shortly= You can use this word if you are referring to a short period of time. For
example: ''five minutes''.
Luckily= 幸運にも ''because of good luck.ラッキーだったので
Anywayともあれという表現は話が続いていきそうだけどそれをさえぎるときにつかう。 ''I was walking to work''.徒歩通勤
Wasn't= WAS + NOTの短縮形
Shortly= すぐに、まもなく
例: ''five minutes''.5分

  • On my way to work it started raining so I had to turn back to grab my umbrella.

  • Once it started raining, I quickly rushed back home to get my umbrella.

You can explain that you needed to turn around, or go back in the opposite direction, in order to get an umbrella on your way to work. Also, saying that you needed to 'grab' something shows that you were in a rush and needed to do it quickly.
「通勤途中に引き返して(turn around)傘を取りに戻った」と説明できます。また、'grab' を使うと、急いでいて素早く(傘を)とった感じが出ます。

  • I had to go back home and fetch an umbrella since it started raining.

Fetch means go for and then bring back (someone or something) for someone.
For example "He ran to fetch help"
Fetchは誰か、何かや誰かをとるために行って戻ることを意味します。
例:彼は助けを求めに走った。

  • I was on my way to work but had to double back home to get my umbrella

    play icon

  • I had to retrace my footsteps homeward when I overlooked bringing my umbrella

    play icon

To double back = go back in the direction one has come.
"He had to double back to collect his aunt's medicine."
To retrace one's footsteps or retrace your steps = to go back to a place in the same way that you came:
"She walked straight past her office and then had to retrace her steps to pick up her handbag."
Overlooked = this word is sometimes used a s euphemism for 'forgot.'
To double back=今来た方向に戻ること。
例文
To retrace one's footsteps または retrace your steps= 来た方向に同じ道を戻ること。
例文
Overlooked=この単語はたまに'forgot'(忘れた)の婉曲的な表現として使われます。

  • Because of the rain, I went back home to get my umbrella.

    play icon

  • Sorry for being late. I went home to take umbrella because of the rain.

    play icon

I recommend using the second sentence because it's better to apologize first and then explain the situation which caused you coming late, although, both of the sentences have the same meaning.
まず謝って、それから状況を説明した方がいいと思います。ですから、二つ目の例がおすすめです。ただ、意味はどちらの例も変わりません。
