1976

Yesterday was the hottest June day for 40 years and social media has been alive with people moaning about how hot the recent weather has been. 

The weather has taken me back to the heat wave of 1976, I was a little girl then living in Watford.  

Hot humid day after day, I remember it looked like the earth was cracking up with deep lines.  Ladybirds seemed in abundance, covering people wearing yellow or bright coloured clothes. 

I wonder if we will ever get a summer like that again in the UK?
