    My ex mil is quite the opposite, even though she lives interstate, she makes the effort to come over to SA every year and visit me n ds, she loves spending a week with us and she spoils ds rotten. She was over here last month in the school holidays and she n ds shared a room, (he has bunk beds) and she enjoyed sharing with ds.

    My ex fil hasn't made an effort with ds at all and it's his loss. Ex fil never liked me at all we never got along. He even scowled in our wedding pictures, as he disliked me so much.

    I think you've done the right thing, maybe she could come and visit you if you don't want to go on the weekend?

    I get an email from ex-mil for my DDs birthday and Christmas, she sends a present too but hasn't asked to see DD. I think she's seen her once in 18months. Sad really.

    It was made clear to me that my IL's had gained a daughter and lost a son, so I am very lucky there.
    As for you op, I would've suggested ringing as you've done. I would go to the party, it's a good way of letting them know that you don't hate them and you are willing to keep up contact. Which is a) a nice thing to do, and b) can come in handy for you in terms of extra support.

    Good luck.
