If there is no brake fluid loss and no air in the system usual indication is if the brake pedal sinks to the floor when you hold your foot hard on the pedal. Might be worth getting some one else to pump the brakes whilst holding each flexible hose in turn and see if you can feel them excessively expanding / ballooning as this will also impact on pedal travel.
I'll check the hoses first, sounds easier

The brakes do seem to work very well though, so i wouldn't have have even thought anything was up until I happened to push the pedal whilst I was sat on the drive.
