Thankyou for all the comments yesterday and the concern for me.
When I was thinking about moving the sand I was going to use the big barrow to do the 3 loads but was a bit concerned myself as to how I would go.
As luck would have it the big barrow had bluemetal in it and I couldn't be bothered emptying it so used the *girly* barrow instead. This one has a weight limit so I couldn't overfill it, not too much anyway.
So the 3 loads yesterday were done without too much struggling.
As a few suggested, I will start off small, do the 3 for a week or so then move on to bigger and more often. I will get the front yard filled in first as there are lots of low spots from when we shifted the fence and garden.
I have the grandaughter here this morning, the Really Really Free Markets at noon and working this afternoon so wont be home 'til tonight sometime. I can't see too much being done here but will try for the 3 loads and the 30min mowing.
I have more chickens so need to clean out their nest and get them some clean hay, peas need picking, rat traps need checking and shifting...I need to water a few gardens...
Of course the house needs tidying again but I can't do it all can I!
Better get stuck into things. The GD can *help* with the sand and I will mow as soon as she leaves. Chop chop...what, it's coffee time? Gosh! There's always something...
Finally we started.
Girl Power Rulz!!
Some of us did slack off before the 3 loads were done but hey, that's what life is out here. Fun and games...for some anyway.

After 5 loads we came in for breakfast.
Time for french toast with organic honey and strawberries.
