I feel your pain!  My 5x4 kit has been sitting idle until recently.
My son is doing photography at college
(one of his A-levels) and has been enjoying film photography more than
digital, much to my surprise.
So I dug out the 5x4 and he shot some FP4 with it.  He's the only
person on his course who's used
the college's DeVere enlarger and he's loving every minute!  It's made
me re-evaluate the use of film
as well.
