【資産/投資状況】円安効果で前週から約20万円増加、カナダの量的緩和縮小(テーパリング)、英検1級でる順パス単(0150~0169)

しかし、今日は、自転車の後輪のホイールのリムが折れて、ホイールごと交換する羽目になり、約1万円の損が確定してしまいました。

かなり大きくなってきた子供を後ろに乗せて運転していたので、それが原因だと思います。

もう年齢も年齢なので、これを機に子供を後ろに乗せるのはやめようと思います。

修理の金額も痛いのですが、修理に1週間ぐらいかかるというので、その間、自転車を利用できないのも地味に痛い。

不幸中の幸いは、ホイール交換を依頼したサイクルベースあさひでは楽天ペイが利用できるので、先日キャンペーンで楽天ペイにチャージした楽天キャッシュや、楽天リワードで稼いだ期間限定の楽天ポイントで全額支払う予定です。
