How are you spending Grand Final day?

It's a massive weekend for footy fans, with the AFL and NRL Grand Finals. Both feel extra special this year with long-suffering underdogs finally having a chance at glory.

 

The games also provide a great excuse to get together with friends and family, often sharing a drink or two around the barbecue as well as the television.

 

There's also the bonus of a long weekend for much of the country, so there's also plenty of time to knock off a project around the house and garden.

 

How are you spending Grand Final day?

 

And do you have any special projects planned?

It will be low-key with the extended family. Not sure whether it will be a BBQ or pies as yet... Or both! We will be barracking for the Bulldogs.

Re: How are you spending Grand Final day?

To all those about to enjoy a long weekend, I hope you have a happy and safe break.

 

Let us know if you plan to get stuck into any projects around the house and garden. 

 

And like last year, it would be great if you could share your plans for Grand Final day if you plan on having a big one.

Beers and BBQ all round for us!

 

Depending how I feel I might dig up the grass along one side of my driveway to get some plants in making it look a bit nicer and put a discrete divide between our house and the neighbours.

 

Keen to knock up a couple of things made of wood too so will see how I go

For the long weekend this year, we decided to escape the city and have a short break with friends down at the beach. Turns out it was an inspired decision to escape. Especially if Collingwood win!

 

What are your plans for the upcoming weekend?

@Jason I'll be cooking up a storm, handing out free samples to a bunch of hungry customers. I did marinated chicken wings last weekend which turned out a treat in the Jumbuck hooded 4 Burner. This weekend I think I may take it up a notch and throw on a rotisserie, doing a roast in it, with some roast pork rolls and gravy. Yum!!
