Can anyone identify this please? updated

Can anyone identify this please? No label, neither of us can remember what the flowers look like or when we planted it!! (I expect I shall feel very foolish!)
Many thanks
I have put a close up of the leaves - does it help? At the moment it is about 8" spread and about 6" high, no sign of buds/flowers yet, probably far too early

I can't quite see properly but could it be Thyme?

I keep looking, reminds me of several things, but I don't know really, except its definitely not thyme, its too woody.

No I agree too woody for thyme but as to what... could we have a close up of the leaves please.

I'll go back out tomorrow and get another picture of the leaves. Thanks for looking

Maybe boxwood? Hard to tell what scale it is.

Looks like Spiraea to me...

I've updated the question with a close up of the leaves and dimensions.
Uma - that's a thought, thanks

Close up looks like a small leaved viburnum, possibly V. farreri 'nana', but hard to say as its been cut back.

How do I say thanks?
