While sitting trapped in the outhouse, Mr. Thomas is undoubtedly trying to figure out why the boys of the Wormsley Common gang have trapped him in his own outhouse. He probably feels extremely angry about having been tricked by the boys in the first place; after all, they duped him into the outhouse in the first place by playing on his sympathy, so he understandably feels betrayed as well.  He might wonder about the meaning of his horoscope and the "serious crash" and start to feel paranoid about what those Wormsley Common boys could possibly be doing in his backyard or with his house.
