I'll give the assisted squats (the first video) a go if I can find anywhere stable enough to support me holding onto it but there's no way I can do the exercises in the second video because I'm not stable enough on my feet and even laying on my side ones would weaken my knees too much... not trying to be a party pooper, just realistic is all   :(

Much better... just wondering if a child would be allowed to use a saw and hammer on her own though?  Just a minor health and safety thingybob   :-\

I've never even heard of junior hammers and saws so you're one step ahead of me there!  lol  Maybe include a parent or much older sibling to it or something like that so that the child is still doing the hammering and sawing but they have adult supervision so that children aren't tempted to use their parents tools without supervision?

Just a thought so that you aren't sued after a child breaks their fingers with the hammer or slices through a vein with a saw is all   :happy0158:

Thanks for the reply, lol at being sued  ;), i'm aiming for the type of cartoon of a bygone era, you know like old tom and jerry and the loony tunes cartoons, mixed with a little bit of Mr Bean thrown in for good measure,, adding other characters will complicate things, it'll mean another character for me to draw and animate, I did contemplate it, like just drawing the lower half of the adult character, the same way they did it in tom and jerry, who know perhaps a might, but as it stand right now i'm trying to keep it simple,

 I just finished a new episode,

thank you very much, in means a lot, most people don't have any faith in me or my dreams, they wont me to become a mindless drone, I know if I keep at it, I might get some where in life, thanks for believing in me, sometimes in life all you need is someone to create the spark to ignite the fire inside of you, :hug:

Keep at it, Jali!  Bad days are bound to happen 'cos that's just the pooyness of life, but have faith in yourself and confidence in your abilities and you'll get there before you know it!
