Clio starter motor turns but engine will not fire?

While I'm on a bit of a roll on here tonight, I though i'd ask another question about a problem that we have experienced with our clio (1.2 Dynamique 2002). It went through a phase of not starting on the first turn of the key, it would take several attempts before it would start, on other days it would start first time (it did'nt matter if it was hot or cold), until one day after about 10 mins I gave up and called the AA out. After waiting for the AA for about 20 mins i thought i would give it another go, and suprise suprise it started first turn of the Key. Since then we have had no more problems and it starts first turn of the key every time. Does anyone now what might be the cause, is it likely to come back? The strange thing is it seems to have been worse when i used the car than the misses.
