How Ronnie And Georgia’s relationship survived The Block.
They were last year’s feistiest contestants. Yet, despite ruffling more than a few feathers during filming in Elsternwick last year, The Block 2017’s WA contestants, Ronnie and Georgia Caceres remained rock solid.
I know, right - how?!
In an article with Nine Homes, Georgia explains the secrets to ensuring your relationship survives a renovation are having clearly defined roles, trusting each other to fulfil these roles, having honest and open communication - and maintaining a sense of humour.
“It’s inevitable that at some point during a renovation things won’t go to plan,” she says. “Be prepared for curve balls and tackle those problems together with a sense of humour.”
She also says, on a more practical level, it’s important to keep a tidy worksite, and to make sure you take time to spend together - especially if you are both living, and working, on-site.
“Renovations, especially if you’re living in the home you’re renovating, can become all-consuming,” she explains. “Schedule date nights, lock in the sitter and get out of the dust for a fun night out.
“Reconnect and talk about anything but paint colours and tradies.”
We think that’s great advice.
Life after The Block is loking FAB for Ronnie & Georgia!
Ronnie and Georgia on Instagram said "Kind of how we felt after reading the paper. Feeling extremely proud to have been part of such an insanely high rating season of @theblock ... the highest rating ‘non sports’ TV show in 2017 to be precise!"
