The second problem you had was solely due to the rear wheel not being held firmly enough in place. Not knowing whether you have a nutted axle, or quick release, I can't give specific instructions, but suffice it to say, you need to fit it in there a bit more tightly.
Glad to hear that despite the day's challenges, you still like it.
In search of what to search for.
