My Mystery Man


A curious package arrived on my doorstep this morning addressed to me. 
A present for me? How lovely. I opened it to find a beautifully wrapped box
of chocolates with a message:
Thank you very much, 
I had a fab time last week. 
From Tom :-)

My first thought was 'Who is Tom?' 'Did I meet a 'Tom' last week?' 
'Where was I last week?' I called Mr. H, thinking there must be some mistake
and they put in the wrong name. He knew nothing about it but then asked, 'Who is Tom?' 
Is there something I should know? Oh dear....

I called the Thorntons chocolates and told a very nice operator about my dilemma. 
I wanted to know who 'Tom' was as they surely had a mistake. 
I went on in my usual fashion giving more information than was necessary 
and explained that my husband also wanted to know who 'Tom' was. 

I was put on hold whilst they called the sender of this thoughtful gift.
She came back to me, laughing hysterically. 
I think I had made her day.

She said who it was and I immediately knew.  
'Tom' is my son's playmate who was sending me a thank you gift 
for a day out in the city last week.  We both laughed....my mystery man is an
adorable 11 year old boy whom I know as Thomas. 
I gave my thanks for her inquiry and left her still laughing...

I called Tom's mother and we had a good laugh over it.
She is a very thoughtful Mum!
What a way to start the day. 
A mystery man (boy, in this case)
and a box of chocolates!

I should add that our day consisted of a train ride into Waterloo station London,
a trip to the Imperial War Museum to see the exhibit 'Once Upon a Wartime: 
Classic War Stories for Children', hotdogs in the park for lunch with time at home 
for Playstation. We had dinner at the local pub and then a sleepover.
It was a fun day for me too!

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend to you all
I hope it is filled with sweet goodness :)
