Right... Pabs, shopping list:

Goblin Burgers
Cheese slicer
John Court owes me a tenner, but he lives in Finland, so you'll have to get a bus.
A-ha Live in Norway 1987 t-shirt medium (I'm a large, but I like a tight fit)
Lucozade
Smoking pipe suitable for blowing bubbles (see Charlie Brown episode where Snoopy dresses up as Sherlock Holmes)
Spangles
Moon Boots size 8 1/2
Mags will prolly want some cheap (steal them) leaks
Spyderco Native 5
Miss Marple DVD box set - Joan Hicks one
WW2 era goggles
Bottle of Talisker

Ahh I know I'm forgetting things, but I'll get back to you later. What time are you leaving?

Do note all the listed locations are either watch or luggage shops. ("Ur" means "watch"/"clock" in Norwegian and Morris is a chain selling bags, purses, etc.) SAKs have become increasingly difficult to come by in brick&mortar stores in Norway.

Hm, as noted earlier, it seems all our Norwegian members are located outside the Oslo region. Fjällräven has a brand outlet in Oslo, if that's your cup of tea?

https://www.fjallraven.no/fjallraven-brand-stores/fjallraven-brand-store-norge (Language is an eclectic mix of Norwegian and bad Norwegian (Norwegian as imagined by a Swede, perhaps?), but the addresses should be pretty self-explanatory. :) )

it is easy to find very good coffee in Oslo, if you need something warm to drink and like a little "different" coffee. Norwegian style quality coffee is a very light, often floral, roast, so if that sounds interesting, you can look for names like “Wendelboe” and “Stockfleth”. “Kaffebrenneriet” hasn't quite the same "cred", but it's still pretty good. I just realized that's something which is somewhat unique for Norway. (The current style of very light roasts actually originated in Norway.) Another name to look for is “Solberg & Hansen” (the coffee distributors behind ”Kaffebrenneriet”, but they also operate their own stuff, the.) Generally, if you see a place selling coffee as “handbrew” (“håndbrygg”) with the telltale sign of aeropress, Kalita, or similar, you can usually try what the locals consider good coffee.

(I like coffee very much myself, perhaps you can tell...  :P )

A little late to the party.
I wish I had seen this earlier.

I agree with Steinar on the sightseeing.

If you like modern art you can vistit the Astrup Fearnley museum http://afmuseet.no/en/hjem , at Aker Brygge and then take the ferry over to Bygdøy to visit the Fram and Vikingship museums. Akershus Festning (akershus fortress) can also be seen and visited from Aker Brygge.
If you like burgers, Beach Club on Aker Brygge has great burgers. https://www.akerbrygge.no/servering/beach-club/

Ps. The beer prices are outrageous.

Unfortunately Im not that often in Oslo, so Im not that familiar with the city. 

PPs.  Forsvarsmuseet (the Army museum) at Akershus Festning is free :D

They probably though you were cute. Anyway, more importantly, have you got my list?

Have a lovely trip Pabs and watch out for mucky women... and men.

Don't worry Fuzzbert - if I know Pabs (and I do) he won't rest until every item on your list has been tracked down, purchased and lovingly stored, ready to package and, when the time is right, sent to 'Done Bucking' by registered 1st class mail.
