In life, there are some tasks that you've been doing for years but just cannot manage to master. No matter how hard you try it just doesn't seem to click. Take me for example: I've been applying fake tan for close to 10 years. You would think in that time that I'd have picked up a trick or two. You thought wrong. My elbows will need sandpaper to bring them close to a normal shade and I've somehow managed to tan the soles of my feet.
I needed some reassurance that I wasn't the only person who struggled to master some every day tasks and the Early Breakfast listeners were quick to come to my rescue:
