Was this fair?

I was recently a nanny for a lovely young toddler in London. I worked 30 hours weekly and was provided with room and board. The family only paid me 90 pounds per week, which is the equivalent of about $110 US per week. I had initially agreed to stay for one year, but gave notice after 4 months. The mom got angry and started yelling at me and told me that I was leaving her in the lurch and was damaging her son emotionally. She blamed me for putting her at risk of losing her home as she could not work without a nanny.
