Clio II brake pads checking

I recently took my clio to have a service and MOT and they informed me that my brakes were 80% worn and that it would not make the next service/MOT so I agreed to have my 2 front brake pads changed.

On receipt of my car I could not notice any change in the feel of the brakes and I am not sure if they did any work on them. I did notice that the handbreak is stiffer and it looks like they did work to that.

My question is, is there a way to find out if they have been changed, bear in mind that I do not know anything really about the mechanical side of a car, so is there a simple way to check without having to take things apart or end up paying someone to check it for me.
