You may well need to prime the fuel system.
When a car is stood for a while the fuel will drain back from the filter and pump.
Diesels are notoriously difficult to start when the fuel lines drain (happens when changing fuel filters).
If you have home start with AA or RAC etc, they should be able to reprime the fuel system for you.
