mothering Sunday in UK isn't teh same as Mothers day in US
http://www.dayformothers.com/when-is-mothers-day.html

in  In UK, Mother's Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in the month of Lent. Since the days of Lent are not fixed, the date for Mother's Day keeps on changing as well.

IN US it is always the second Sunday in May & has no relation to the religious calendar

Or Canada - an annual source of befuddlement in this household as we've got both to contend with, and the Canadian one doesn't appear on UK calendars...

Tough titty for her - since when did she gain the right to judge?
