Every so often I do! although not as much latley (think that must be good) lol
I have a friend and now and again when things used to pile up! I used to txt her and say I am having a" Shirley Valetine" moment grin in fact I really fancy watching the film again as it must be at least 10 yrs since I saw it..
I seem to remember a plate of egg and chips being on the menu because it was a certain day, and thats what the hubby had on that! day ....! must go and dig it out ..

I loved that film and really identified with Shirley - except I actually did it!

I`ve been tempted, often, but never had the courage to go ahead with it!

Every time I think of Shirley Valentine I remember the blood hound scene Shirley saying "its not normal to have a vegitarian blood hound" then give's the poor hungry dog the hubby's steak,that was the night he got chips & egg on the wrong night,priceless

I quite often take a mini Shirley Valentine experience; I get in the car, drive south and stay with various family and friends wink for a week or so and return somewhat invigorated grin

Not so much now, but happened all the time when I was in an unhappy marriage. Did a lot of talking to walls in those days! Wonderful film/stage play.

I've a feeling all of us at one time or another can relate to Shirley Valentine can't we.

Crimson I did as well - eventually I got out - I loved the film and the play it changed my life then - my favorite comment is " marrige is like the middle east, there is no solution" I so felt like that at the time smile

Yes; I couldn't see a way out without hurting a lot of people, which I wouldn't do. Most relationshipes only make sense when you're no longer in them imo! And I always blamed myself.
