Help to ID a fairly common plant please?

Hello all.

I wonder if anyone can help me ID this fairly common plant.  It looks a little like a hosta in the fact that its about the same height and that it seems to like shade and spreads in a similar fashion.

It has kind of scalloped deep green leaves that are fairly chunky and nice and shiny.  It shoots up stems of little pink flowers that are slightly like a large hyacinth.

I do have a pic, but am currently unable to upload. I wonder if anyone can solve my clues...?

regards

    Sounds exactly like the hosta you seem to think it isn't - why do you not think it is a hosta?  Do have another go with a picture if you can, does help a great deal.

    Steve,  I posted the pic from the internet to help the original poster decide if that was the correct plant image
