Hosta ... Our dual fuel bill is £94 per month - 3 bed detached house, gas CH, no tumble drier. 

Your bill sound high to me - how is the flat heated?

Good morning everyone 

Still getting the cold air from the northeast today. - talk of a high of 8C today   - but apparently warmer weather is coming .... sometime ... 

Still haven't found anyone to fix our downstairs loo either. OH says he'll have another go today. ... Failing that I'll ask if anyone at tennis has a tame handyman tomorrow ...

Aha!  The photo has appeared ... I've been having broadband problems and things are a bit slow here 

Yes, it does look like the frost damage we've seen on other recent queries.

Hmmmm - cake's not being made this afternoon ... I've spent quite some time on the phone to nice people at Virgin media 'cos you lot keep disappearing     (technically speaking we have an intermittent broadband fault).  

I have been assured we will get compensation and that the network team will have it fixed by 11pm tonight and that the nice man will phone tomorrow morning to make sure it's all working ok.

Is this recent damage?  A lot of healthy hydrangea bushes have been damaged by the icy blast from the north east we suffered a few days ago.  Maybe the wind was funnelled past your hedge at just the right angle to damage the middle section?  The frost damaged leaves do look as if they've been sprayed with something

Perhaps you could post a photo  - click on the camera symbol to upload  a picture - if it doesn't upload reducing the size usually works
