i'm going to build a blockwork shed on to a concrete slab,will concrete blocks be too heavy as the slab is only a foot or so deep,so i was thinking thermalite instead,the size is 3.0x2.7...any ideas ?

So long as the base is in good condition I'm sure you could use lightweight blocks without problems, however I am not a structural engineer or builder so others can advise better.
