Sounds like you pressed the CTRL + Alt + UP (or Down) Arrow key, keep pressing it till it goes back to normal.

If the above doesn't work then go to Control Panel, click the downfacing black arrow head next to "control Panel" and click "Appearance and Personalisation" Then click "Display" then "Screen Resolution" then click the box "Orientation" and choose "Landscape" Then "Apply" Then OK.
That should put your screen back to normal.
EDIT:
Sorry my slow typing, we crossed but I will leave my idea in just in case it helps others with a similar problem!

I would not blame your Mum to much the only reason I know the answer is because many years ago without knowing it I pressed those same keys.

On another note after that I got a monitor that was able to turn 90 degrees on it's stand, You would not believe how much nicer web pages look when a monitor is turned 90 degrees

You will have to rotate your monitor your brain is hardwired to move the mouse in the direction it wants the cursor to go. Windows thinks you have the monitor rotated so the top of the screen is now to your right and moving the mouse up will send the cursor to the right. It's very confusing if your monitor is not oriented the way Windows thinks it is.

Well but even making a chesttorsion to look at the screen the right way and have the mouse just as usual, the mouse did not send the cursor the coherent way. But anyway this tragical problem is over and i won't sleep worse because i don't understand it
completely! It was fun solving it!
