To mess about or to mess around is a phrasal verb that means doing things that are not important

In the examples you mentioned:
We just messed about all afternoon. - We spent the afternoon doing nothing important, just hanging out and having fun
She spent the evening messing about on the computer. - She spent the evening on the computer probably scrolling facebook posts or things like that

They weren't doing anything important or with a particular purpose!
