I should know what this is Confused but my brain is drawing a blank at the moment. It's something the former homeowners planted; a very low growing groundcover, sprouting in full shade beneath an oak tree. Maybe Alternathera? Ajuga?
Raining and humid outside so the camera lens is foggy but here are a few pictures:

Looks like an ajuga
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks RJ. I don't know much about either plant. I've been leaning more towards Alternanthera because of the leaf shape and leaf veining. I found a couple that resemble my plant.

That looks closer to it than ajuga
