sounds like a pretty reasonable thing to have done and as far as letting it warm up, the temp makes a difference to development time obviously, but I have no idea what would happen if you shot it cold and then let it develop for an extended time, the temp times are for ambient temperature not chemical temp I suppose... but if you're in a position to let it warm then I'd imagine that'tis best to shot and develop at the same temp.

just one more thing, I've never bothered refrigerating any of the film if I know I'll be using it relatively quickly. As long as it's stored in a cool dry(not a problem there I'd imagine) place it should be fine up to its expiry date at the very least.
