I just can't be dealing with real life any more.

my brain can't take it.

i fuck up too many times.

So i've decided to retire to a nice quiet cave somewhere alonw, with wine and gin and not engage with real life any more.

It's not the worst option.

Really.

Only if I can join you.

What are the fuck-ups (really don't care - probably been there)

BitOfFun Thu 30-Jun-11 22:59:54

I thought that that's what mumsnet regulars did anyway? Or am I early to the trend?

LadyThumb Thu 30-Jun-11 23:00:23

I'm in (we'll need a mansion, though, 'cos I suspect there's lots of us who want to join you)!

If u can afford it why not?

I don't fancy a cave, a bit dark and damp. I want to live in a cottage in the middle of a forest. Peace and quiet.....

YANBU, BTW.

I often dream of abandoning 'real life' (as in work, colleagues, friends, dc's schools and society on the whole) and move to deepest darkets rural wales to go completely self-sufficient.

I would love the peace and quiet.

Have discovered I am no good around people. I get nervous, say stupid things which come back to bite me in the bum weeks or months later. sad

Hermit is the way to go. Definately.

I'm already living the dream.smile

i am truly incompetent in so many aspects of normal life.

i can't do housework.

i can't cook

i don'e understand money.

i don't get politics

i have no interest in tennis.

i just don't care about stuff that riles other people.

i do like wine and books.

BornCalamity Thu 30-Jun-11 23:12:47

ah. and I am Vroom in a new guise.

spiderslegs Thu 30-Jun-11 23:17:34

I live in deepest darkest Wales with not so much as a mile of sheep betwixt me & the next human.

I got locked in a bedroom with the darling Spiders yesterday - Mr Spiders not back for 48 hours.

Not so fun.

We got out.

Eventually.

The Agnostic Nunnery.....

Portofino Thu 30-Jun-11 23:35:01

I could do an agnostic nunnery I think - as long as there was wine.

Portofino Thu 30-Jun-11 23:39:00

We need a MN retreat. Somewher with open space so if you felt so inclined you could run round sceaming a lot. But also with sunbeds a quiet area so that others could relax and enjoy a break from "mum, can I" sort of stuff.

An Agnostic Nunnery should make its own wine :-)

Room for a grumpster?

posterofagirl Fri 01-Jul-11 00:15:44

I moved to rural Wales to be a hermit after my divorce and ended up remarried with a baby!
Nunnery seems a better ideagrin

Gotabookaboutit Fri 01-Jul-11 00:38:17

Live in darkest Wales and not coming out except for wine,books and occasional theater fix.

spiderslegs Fri 01-Jul-11 00:57:06

Ohh - Gotabook - where are you?

kreecherlivesupstairs Fri 01-Jul-11 06:14:28

It's not all sunshine and roses. I am soon to leave my hermitry for a life amongst other people wink

Gotabookaboutit Fri 01-Jul-11 09:22:45

Midwales - Spiderslegs,you?

fallenninja Fri 01-Jul-11 09:32:38

Oh oh annie I live in the forest!! Nearest neighbour 1mile away, nearest shop 5 miles away. Still living the dream of powercuts and diesel generators if a tree falls on the electrcity cable. Sigh ... it may aswell be a cave ...

I also often dream of going to live more in the middle of nowhere. Fresh start somewhere else.

serajen Fri 01-Jul-11 09:48:59

I'm in. Not interested in:

shopping
capitalism
celebrities
cars
possessions
'status'

Living in the wrong country/era, me thinks
