All this time I've been thinking / I thought... Could you tell me please which reaction would be best in the following context? Thank you in advance.
A: Do you have any plans for Saturday evening? Maybe we can go out for a drink?
B: I can’t make it on Saturday I’m afraid. I work Friday-Monday.

I do believe both are correct because in the first answer you keep everything thing in the present tense and the second is all kept in past tense

If you are just having a conversation, you can say both, and people will understand you. However, the first response sounds gramatically correct to me.
