Dove, I had a baby in the summer of 76 too! She was born in March. I bought a paddling pool that we used to lie in under the copper beech tree. Once we went to the clinic and she was the only baby in a sundress with no blanket. The health visitor was taking blankets off all the babies in prams! In the 80°s!
Blackest, that's what my plumber says. Leave the heating on all the time in winter because if the house gets chilled the boiler will have to work harder to heat it up again. But I have a house with very thick stone walls which is nice and cool in summer, but gets very cold in winter.
