When I was growing up in the Christchurch suburb of Hoon Hay, Ann, my best friend from school, lived one street behind us in Mavin Road. This is how I remember her Mum Viola, when I used to go around to Ann’s place after school.  Viola was a keen baker and loved to keep those cake tins full.  Her hokey pokey biscuits were my favourite..........good old Edmonds Cook Book recipe of course.  Oh, and she loved canaries too according to Ann.
