Well my visa has just arrived back from the Russian Embassy, I’m about £80 lighter for the privilege. Royal Mail managed to not track my recorded delivery to the embassy so I’ve spent the last two weeks worrying my little socks off.

My advice, do not use Royal Mail’s Signed For delivery service for this kind of thing, only ever use Recorded Delivery, it just isn’t worth the heartache.

Let’s hope Mr Edd comes up trumps with his whizz bang multiple entry visa.
