7 months unused now can't get 5th/6th gear

Hi, my GT has been sat on the drive for seven months, turned over once a week for about five minutes and moved up and down the drive a bit but that's it. I just took it out for a drive and all seems OK, except I can't get into 5th or 6th gear. The other gears are a bit stiff but work OK.

Any thoughts anyone? Also, any advice for what else I may need to do/check after not using the car for seven months?

Thank you!

Maybe have the gear selection linkages checked and clutch slave cylinder for leaks.
