namaste John Technically what you have written is right ( i believe its यहाँ that you meant and not पहाँ - a typo). however, when you speak in public or to someone, one would refer to one's mother as माँ/माताजी. Even though माता refers the same as mother, it is not generally used. the other thing that i observe is that the sentence tone is as if you are complaining, as one would complain about a guest who is overstaying ( he has been here for 5 days!!! ) - do you get what i am trying to say?? sounds tricky and weird :)
