Blowing the cobwebs away
There’s something about going for a walk on a very windy day. Battling the force of the wind, getting buffeted about on the top of an exposed hill, and having your hair whip around your face really makes you feel alive. My Mum has always called this ‘blowing the cobwebs away’. Today, that seemed uncannily accurate. I went out feeling bleary and dopey, but came back wide awake and refreshed, despite the grey and less than ideal weather.
