    On first coming to England, I fell head over heels in love with a girl who lived in the flat below mine.

    Usually the phrase "head over heels" is used to express the thought of someone having fallen deeply in love, sometimes quickly. Sometimes it is used about other things that a person is extremely enthusiastic about.

    Excited, and/or turning cartwheels to demonstrate one's excitement.

    Head over heels
