    Today it's 900kg of mixed topsoil/compost. At least the delivery was after lunch so I got out for a bike ride in the morning.

    Ramp was the winner here, even if the plank I was using was way too long so I had to swerve off it on each trip before it started acting like a seesaw.

    Oh blimey I nearly bought one of these a few years ago, having test ridden one, but they seem to be rare and usually overpriced. Now this one comes along at a sensible price!

    Bingo! Job done. Neighbour lent me two planks, and after about 20 barrow loads it was all done and I went to the pub for haddock and chips and two pints of seafarers. Thank you all for reassuring me it was possible!

    That sounds feasible, apart from the fact that all my friends are miles away. Maybe just me and my two buckets. I could whittle a milkmaid's yoke. Should be done in a day.

    Gravel. Or pea shingle. I am expecting about 900kg of the stuff to be left in a bulk bag out in the street. I need to get it up a steep front path, round the side of the house, down three steps, up four steps and up to the end of the back garden. I have a wheelbarrow but I suspect it won't be much use on the steps. Would it be nuts to move it all by bucket?
