This was a large day flying moth with a wing span about 60-70 mm. It came inside so didn't see whether it had been landing on any particular plants. I've never seen one in the garden before so it may have flown from elsewhere. thanks.
This is the Riband Wave, Idaea aversata, a medium sized moth (max wing span ca. 5cm), and common and widespread throughout the UK.
If you leave your bathroom light on and window open I can guarantee you will see more and other moths besides.
