Weed identifying. Yes, catchy title, isn't it?

There's this weed in my garden, and it grows prolifically. I didn't know what it was, so I attempted to find out. I asked a neighbour, and he said "Oh, that's clover! Yep, it's clover. give it a bit of shade, and away it goes!"

Well, I knew it wasn't clover, so I just said, "Oh, is it?" politely, and said no more. I tried describing it to a friend, and she said "well, it sounds like pennywort, but it isn't in a damp spot you say? I am not sure then"

I searched and searched online, and there is quite a lack of weed identifying websites!I eventually found out what the elusive weed name was~ Common Mallow.
