Griff has been working hard in the choir at Birch, he tells Ida. They're all booked up for members but sometimes he ends up doing a wee bit more work than usual as a bass singer, he "had to sing against three tenors and three altos both morning and evening." There were quite a few mistakes in the singing so much so that "the morning anthem gave me the shudders" and "your father would have had a pink fit" were he still choir master.
The travel agency where he works has had a slew of travel tickets cancelled. Possibly due to the war as he reckons other travel offices wouldn't have fared much better.
He teases that he can't be fobbed off on other women as "I am magnificently enslaved, you see" by her.
