Just another air con mystery

I only use the car in the early morning and late evening so I havenít used the air con in a very long time.
Last week I wanted to chill the air a bit but when I pressed the button nothing happened, the compressor didnít even start up.
A few days ago I took the car for a regas the compressor started up and the cold air flooded the car but during the same day, after the regas the air con didnít work at all, then a few hours later it came to its senses and worked just fine.
Yesterday and today the air was not cold at all.
The compressor starts up every time so the gas pressure should be ok,
Any ideas on what could be the problem?

Probably a leaky pipe somewhere. My last 156 got a tiny hole in the pipe near the front of the engine bay near the bumper. It was enough to let the aircon work a little, but then over a few days / weeks lose all the gas.
Not a cheap pipe to replace new I recall.
