1. To replace a cap or caplike covering on: recapped the bottle.
2. all of today's events
Try to decide if they make any sense.
I consider tomorrow and what it's about
What I'm doing inside and out
Organised now I fluff up Verb 1. fluff up - make fuller by shaking; "fluff up the pillows"
plump up, shake up
shake, agitate - move or cause to move back and forth; "The chemist shook the flask vigorously"; "My hands were shaking" my pillow
Settle down, see the curtains billow.
Too warm to close them, I close my eyes
Wriggle my toes, whisper bye byes
Set off to dream of pleasantries pleas·ant·ry

An all-conquering heroine, a famous name.
I hear an alarm, it stops, a yapping dog too
Head under the covers, I now need the loo
On my back, then left, run onto my right
My foot itches, I can see the street light.
I sigh, sit up, contemplate going downstairs
To watch TV, read, eat my chocolate eclairs
It's no good, I can't sleep, I wake my hubby up because
I need company. My excuse? It's because he snores!
GEORGE CARRICK, Cramlington.
