Its probably just the cold weather up your way. The gear oil is probably thickening in the cold weather making gear changes feel like you are moving a stick through treacle.

Years ago I had a scare when driving my XR3i 200 miles on the motorway, only to come to a point where I needed to change gear, and couldnt get the car out of 5th. All because of the freezing temperatures.
