My name is Tami Magnin and I started blogging in May 2011. Even though I work full time, cooking and baking is my form of relaxation and it gives me pleasure to share my experiences with you. I am the sole breadwinner in a family of 4 which means that I have a very small budget that needs to stretch to meals and treats that will fill tummies with good, nutritious foods so that my children can grow to be “big and strong” ;).
People have asked me where the name Rumtumtiggs comes from so I decided to explain it here. Rum Tum Tugger is the name of one of the cats mentioned in the T.S. Eliot poetry book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, published in 1939. In the musical CATS, this character has a song where the chorus goes:
The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat
And there isn’t any need for me to shout it
For he will do as he did, do
And there’s no doing anything about it
This, combined with the character of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh is the kind of person I see myself as. And that is how the name rumtumtiggs came about 😉
