I decided to test the theory about it being cheaper to have the heating on all day. My hubby thought I was mad checking the meter and temperature of each room every day morning & evening.
After a week of it being on timer, and a week of it being on constant I found I used much less gas with the heating on constant. House was a lot more pleasant to be in too.

Oh, and there is extra electricity running a boiler constant and wear and tear on the boiler resulting in it being repaired/replaced sooner.

When u go on holiday in winter, is it best to
1) put your heating on for half an hour a day so you don't come back to an ice cold house
2) turn heating totally off then when you come back blast the house with heat until it warms up
