Slow trudge home

This evening, the footpaths were covered with a thin layer of ice, the result of a thaw during the day and a subsequent freeze as the temperature dropped after dark.

Some surfaces are better than others. Rough tarmac is a great surface, as there's still a fair amount of traction if the ice isn't too thick. Smooth bricks or paving slabs are rather less pleasant, requiring each footstep to be carefully planted.

The worst bits are where there's a change of surface accompanied by a slope. Almost lost my balance on one of those.
