Au where Patsy’s coming back (to the excitement of everyone at nonnatus), and Delia has missed her but become much closer with the other nurses, and understands that she hasn’t received letters as frequently as she’d like because mourning is hard and HK-London post is atrocious. Phyllis volunteers to drive Delia to the dock when Patsy’s boat is due in, and Delia waits excitedly for her to disembark.
Also they kiss at some point.

I befriended one of the new staff members after telling her she looked like a Twin Peaks character (she could be Audrey’s lighter-haired sister). We wear similar glasses frames and red plaid flannels, and I’ve been admiring her crimson hiking boots since I first saw them. I’m having a mustard yellow jacket shipped to me from home which happens to look very similar to *her* mustard yellow jacket. She mentioned that she’s been wanting her own blue puffer vest after noticing mine. We’ve been joking about going twinsies.
Anyway, I sent that video of my shoe to my mother and she immediately admitted that she’d bought me new boots as an Easter gift (we’re not Christian, but it’s her favorite holiday because she loves decorating baskets). She sent me a photo. They’re the same brand and color as my new friend’s.
“I don’t want to make it weird, but one of us is going to have to change,” I said, warning her of the impending awkwardness. We agreed that it’s less weird if it’s intentional, so we’re going to embrace our overlapping fashion tastes and dress like one another on purpose from now on.
