Hi.

My cousin asked me last night to go out for drink. I said to him "I have masses of work to do" so I couldn't go with him.

I wonder if the bold is natural.

    I wouldn't say it's particularly natural, at least to me. By far the easiest things to say are "a lot of," "lots of," "a bunch of," "a ton of," "tons of," and so on.
