Might be in here regularly enough asking for advice Embarrassed

Have a hinge issue on a small cabinet in the jacks. In laymans terms, the hinge has come away from the chipboard or whatever technical term is used for this type of wood. Anyway, just want to do a mcgyver on it and fill in the damage and re screw the hinge in. What can be used? Wood filler? Polyfilla? Will this allow for me to re-screw and be solid enough to hold the door on?

Get a wood filler with a hardener(2 pack it's called)
Ye mix the hardener with the filler
Will go rock solid and you can screw into it
But ye need to act fast when mixing it cause it will harden very quick

BSM need your advice, i know it was posted before but cant be bothered looking for it, doing a bit of painting at home and need to do a bit of filling, need your expertise on best way to go about it so it dose not stand out like a sore thumb as a patch. 
Just because it's tradition does not make it right

Sand down the filler then paint the patch with your brush
Then paint full wall as normal
So in theory the filler gets 2 coats of paint thus covering it better
Best to mix filler yourself rather then ready mixed stuff(sands down easier)

Loosened the power shower from the wall so could tile behind it
Havnt fixed it back properly but still using it
But it isn't very focking hot
Normally have it on No 5 heat (T-90) and she's hot
But have it on full blast,No10,and it's only Luke warm
Any ideas gents?
