Pretty Pink Flowering Shrub ID Please

LoopzLoopz Posts: 22
Please help ID my shrub, it's in flower now. I bought it at a plant sale (no label) and kept it in a pot for a couple of years, when I planted it a year or so ago it didn't flower (so a little temperamental) but back to life again now. It is very pretty and hasn't got massive, I would love to know what it is so I can look after it properly.

Thank you  :)  :)

    If you want to prune it to keep it in check, do so immediately after flowering, it flowers on wood it makes now, so if you do that later it won’t flower next year.
