TS,

it's an example of what i was talking about in the other topic thread. it doesn't matter. both are correct answers; Worked and Have Been Working, when having a conversation with someone. we use both answers.

in conversation, you could use Did or Do. it really doesn't matter when having a casual conversation with someone. i think we're worrying too much about specific details and slight differences in the rules.

TS,

correct tenses is only for grammar or writing for school or formal writing. in everyday conversation, english speakers use any tense they want and do not follow the rules.

Yesterday is a "specific time period" of one day

Lately is "not specific" in terms of time. it could refer to any amount of time in the past that just recently happened

time is the difference, i believe.

1) a short time ago (eg: i just finished)
2) a longer period of time passed

"since 2000" is both past and present tense.

"in the past three months" is past tense.

My beloved Aunt,

Thanks for asking me to share some days with you in the countryside tomorrow morning. I'll be arriving at your home.
I hope the weather will be nice so I could go hiking and ride your horses while I'm there.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

Love,
Mr.Libyan
