    any difference

    Is there any difference between "being in the clouds" and "having one's head in the clouds"?
    Cheers

    Yes, "being in the clouds" is not an idiom that I know of. Did you see it somewhere?

    Re: any difference

    I am unfamiliar with it as well.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'd normally take that to mean that my reply was so complicated that you couldn't understand it, that it was "over your head". But that's not possible, since it was a very simple reply. So you must be using "up in the clouds" as an idiom which no one here has heard of. What do you mean by it?
