Thank you for all your help.

I WILL probably get a B&W developing kit...and learn step by step, like I am with taking the pictures!
As for space for a darkroom, I'll try to fix up a window screen for the bathroom, and use there as a base of operations! LOL
As for ebay, I get all my photography equipment from there!! All! LOL (The one camera and 4 lenses and a x3 teleconverter!!...and my latest buy ~ A tripod!)
Film is the only thing that I buy in the shops, and the developing of course! (for the moment at least!)
I hope that changes soon in the future.
Thanks once more.

Richard
