Bureaucracy - what a joy!

I went to see a Notary Public this morning, with Lara's and my passports, to get them notarised. 25 minutes and £70 later I've got two posh-looking letters with wax seals - nice work if you can get it, I'm sure!
We're off to London on Monday morning, first to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to apostilles for these certificates and one of Lara's birth certificates (only £27 + VAT each) and then we have to get to the Russian Embassy by noon to submit the application forms for Lara's Russian citizenship (£105) and and her passport (a mere £50).
Lara has already started planning where she'd like to go when she's got all her documents!:
