Don't worry - I get what you mean. I sometimes wonder how you can be a parent if you are like that.

I wanted that relationship with my MIL. She's completely uninterested in our whole family too. If you don't laugh you cry right?

I would feel upset in your situation too @delirium - it's so much more than the money though, isn't it?
This could have been an opportunity for her to finally show a bit of generosity and kindness to her family, instead she's indulged herself again.

Next time she has a go about you not buying a house say "well my parents didn't give me a deposit like yours did".
I was just talking to my mum and I told her I didn't care if she spent all the money, because they have always helped me when I needed it so hopefully I will be set up well financially when they do die. Lending/giving me money to avoid mortgage insurance, or when I had budgeted wrong. They have given me invaluable financial advice an I am shoving money into my super so I can retire in comfort (they have a large about but living on the interest doesn't go far). They even let me buy their house and make repayments interest free (we all live together).
So my parents are amazing. If they wanted to spend 2mil on themselves I wouldn't care.
But if they had never done a thing to help me and this was a chance they could... It would hurt.
My mum was an only child. My grandma only had us as living relatives. So my mum was hurt when she was told the will would split her assets equally in a ten way split. She didn't feel special.
