    As it's Mother's Day this weekend - in the UK anyway - I was just wondering what people called their Mothers.
    When I was growing up, living in the Midlands, mine was Mam but since moving down South she has become Mum ;)
    My Mother-in-Law was always Mother to my DH and Mummy to her adult daughters.
    What do you call yours?
