I have newly arrived at Whitehall to be lady-in-waiting for the Lady Anne Boleyn, I have yet to meet the good Lady but I have heard that she is most kind.

My chambers are much finer than my previous ones and I am finding my way round the Palace yet I sometimes feel alone. A few of the other ladies walk out with each other in the grounds talking and I long to feel part of it maybe once I have been here a while I will be more used to my new life.

I have spent my day settling into my room, writing to my parents, finishing some embroidery and looking out onto the courtyard watching the people of court go about their business....I have never seen a court as busy as this........oh my I must go for I had been asked to meet Lady Margery Seymour in the Great Hall  and I do not wish to be late.

I have a reoccurring dream where I am alone with the Duke, it banishes the nightmares that I have been plagued with since my old Court so I am glad of this intrusion on my sleep.

Tis so out of character for me to behave in such a way but his Grace is most gentlemanly and good to me

I have been so busy of late that I have felt that I have hardly had time to breathe, in order to try and get myself back I went to France....while I was at least able to relax slightly I still did not feel quite like myself and I missed my friends in the English Court.

However I did meet up with a most handsome gentleman, who offered me his protection Sir Thomas Seymour brother to my friend Margery, I shall be forever in debt to this great family

It feels like my last entry was a whole different lifetime ago and it had happened to another person entirely - I realise I'm not that naïve girl anymore to much had occurred to me for me to have remained unchanged.

The horror I feel as I recall the events that threatened to overwhelm me, the lies that were told about my person and to my face, the way I have been beaten and bruised by everything to be made so scared that I couldn't even trust my own shadow.

I realised that I had to get away, to find a place where I was safe and unknown - it hurt so much to leave my friends behind at court but I could not take the chance that any messages would be received safely and lead them to my safe place. I daren't return to my parents in case I brought trouble and further shame to their door. I needed time to heal and get stronger before I make my return to life.

My heart is heavy as I pack what is left of my belongings, long gone are the jewels and precious dresses that had been stolen from me or I had to sell in order to live and survive. What my prospects are now I dread to think - what decent man would want me now I am damaged goods?

Oh diary I wish I could go back to before I met him but I have learned a major life lesson and I shall always be on my guard around men.

Imagine my fear when I happened to cross paths with his Grace The Duke of Suffolk while I was in hiding, despite his Grace always being kind and considerate towards me I was scared that it meant other men from court were also near by. His Grace took pity upon me and was fully aware of the events in court which made me leave and I could see the pain in his eyes when I briefly explained my absence and although I trust him somewhat I did not tell him the full horrors I have gone through in fear I would not be able to return to court which I now feel able to do

I pray that I can return for I have nowhere else to go
