That's good you fixed it so easy, it might have been that taking the drums off and on again and adjusting the brakes that helped too, though giving the shoes a clean would have been a helping factor, were either side oily at all?

no there was no contamination at all and the shoes were all evenly worn ,there was just a thin coating of black dust .there is one thing though ,the brakes are not very good when reversing ,is this common ?

Braking in reverse is never as good as in the forward direction, though they should work ok and do the job.
