Apologies for the lengthy silence – I’ve just been off on my hols. And we’re not talking Torremolinos: I abandoned small children to ever-patient husband and set off halfway around the world to explore the jungles of Borneo.

Mount Kinabalu, just outside the capital, Kota Kinabalu and the view that dominated the first half of the week.

Best of all, it is cloaked in rainforest: and there be rare plants in them thar hills…..
