get my ip address

Hi all,

Debian 9. I need to read my IPv6 address into a python script.

I am aware that I can call ip a and parse the result. The parsing,
whilst quite achievable, is slightly tricky, but I can manage the RE, so
 that's not my question.

Is there any other way to obtain this data, maybe from /sys?

Cheers, Tony.
