underwear is expensive

I just spent $100 and it was a sale and I didn't get a lot:
2 singlet tops
1 bra
2 pairs of knickers
1 pair of board shorts.

Dear oh dear. That was my BDO ticket. And I really could do with more. Baggy falling off clothes is one thing (although I was unreasonably upset today when my favourite board shorts are definitely too big to wear) but baggy falling off underwear is another. Why is underwear so expensive?! And why are almost all the bras padded and/or synthetic and/or decorated with lace and flowery bright designs? Why don't they make more underwear that I like?

The things that have always mattered the most to me is a)the people I am with and b) learning stuff about me and the world and other people. It is not the sort of thing that easily translates into a list of 101 things I really really want to do.

Anyway, at the moment being a housewife and just pottering around doing what I feel like appeals. Although "pottering around doing what I feel like" could include any number of things including consulting and travelling and research and creating. I am almost certain that I won't usually feel like doing housework. And I guess I am also very particular about where I would be happy being a housewife.
