This post is completely self-indulgent, though Petal will be interested. Boris is the head of our household. He had some kind of accident last year - exactly what we still don't know - and for a while there, things looked grim. But he was soon back to his old self, bossing us about and demanding fish. Here he is anyway, meditating above and surveying his domain below. If you like this, go to Petal's blog, where her Fidel, who looks very much like a young Boris, is currently starring.
