Sizzling '76: Shorts, standpipes and sunglasses
This week has seen the hottest day of 2018 so far, with the Met Office recording 33.3C in Suffolk - still a way off the all-time high of 38.5C (101F) in Kent in August 2003.
This hot spell has spurred some of you to dig out old photos from the heatwave of 1976, back when eggs were fried on car bonnets and the air was filled with flying ants.
Despite the scorching weather, Lorraine Badcock's mum decided to dress her baby daughter in an outfit of dress, tights and mob cap.
Whilst many had fun in the sun wearing knitted bikinis and frilly sunhats, the more serious side to the heatwave was water usage restrictions and standpipes on the streets.
Jon in Bristol remembers how his school gave out stickers to put on our toilets at home, which read: "Don't flush the loo more than you have to."
In a nod to the drought, Lara's dad used his creative skills to come up with tap and water tank fancy dress outfits for his children.
Meanwhile, some children yearned for a dip in a pool, in Christopher Higgins' case, a nice, safe paddling pool, away from creatures of the sea as depicted on his Jaws T-shirt.
"We stayed at a caravan site in Cleethorpes used by working class mining families from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire," Christopher told the BBC.
"They were the best holidays ever."
Some were happy to spend plenty of time on the beach, or in Jeremy's case, day after day of the summer of '76 in the back garden on his tricycle.
