Next page link puzzle (1 post)

    I have a blog.php page template with the following loop. It works fine but I haven't been able to paginate it, i.e. add Next and Previous Pages links to the next index of x pages. I know this is supposed to be a simple operation and I have tried various options (e.g. http://codex.wordpress.org/Next_and_Previous_Links#The_posts_nav_link within and outside of the loop) but none are working. At best, the Next page link takes me back to the initial page of 5 posts.

    Can anyone help? Thanks!

    <?php query_posts('cat=3&posts_per_page=5'.get_option('posts_per_page=5')); ?>
    
    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post() ?>
    
    			<div id="post-<?php the_ID() ?>" class="<?php sandbox_post_class() ?>">
    				<h3 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php printf( __('Permalink to %s', 'sandbox'), the_title_attribute('echo=0') ) ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title() ?></a></h3>
    				<div class="entry-date"><abbr class="published" title="<?php the_time('Y-m-d\TH:i:sO') ?>"><?php unset($previousday); printf( __( '%1$s', 'sandbox' ), the_date( '', '', '', false ), get_the_time() ) ?></abbr></div>
    				<div class="entry-content">
    
    					<div class="excerpt-text">
    
    					<?php $thumb = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', true); ?>
    
    					<?php if (!empty($thumb)) { ?>
    
    					<div class="excerpt-image" style="width:240px float:left;"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><div style="border-style: solid; border-color: #EEE; border-width: 8px; width: 290px; float: right; margin: 0 0 8px 15px;"><img src="<?php echo $thumb ?>" style="float: right; border-style: solid; border-color: #EDDFDF; border-width: 4px;" width="282px" /></div></a></div>
    
    					<?php } ?>
    
    					<?php the_excerpt() ?>
    
    					</div>
    <div class="clearer" style="clear: both; width: 100%">&nbsp;</div>
    
    				<?php wp_link_pages('before=<div class="page-link">' . __( 'Pages:', 'sandbox' ) . '&after=</div>') ?>
    				</div>
    				<?php /*<div class="entry-meta">
    					<!--<span class="author vcard"><?php printf( __( 'By %s', 'sandbox' ), '<a class="url fn n" href="' . get_author_link( false, $authordata->ID, $authordata->user_nicename ) .

    			</div><!-- .post -->
