I'm all fingers and thumbs

Notice how “and” reduces to a single sound /n/, which needs to be made a little further forward than usual, with your tongue already just touching the inside of your top teeth, ready for the /θ/. This will need practice. Feel how different it is from the way you would have said it before.

This phrase means “I’m very clumsy at the moment.”, perhaps because your hands are cold, though thankfully there’s no chance of that here right now.
