    OH isn't particularly good about judging how much water to put in the kettle. I've now put a flask next to the kettle to capture the excess ready for the next
    Mine does that too!! Drives me nuts, doors left open, lights on, sigh.....

    Unfortunately the on/off shower doesn't work for us, I think it's because there is such a long run from the boiler to the bathroom!  The water goes cold after a very short time when you turn it off.  It works in the motorhome fortunately as we would be needing to fill up much more often if we just left it running!

    We are fortunate that we have a hot water cylinder within 5 feet of the shower so it has no chance of going particularly cold in the 2 minutes it's turned off.
