For step 3-4 also:
SSTS to UP=26
1)(2=459)c23b3-(9=2)b7,=>b12c7<>2
2)(8)c5=(8-5)b4=b123-(54=2)c32,=>c5<>2
3)FXW(5): b123=b4-h4=h3,=>c3<>5

Hello Hayley! You do look beautiful, darling.
Hope you're enjoying the school holidays.

Hi Les,can you check your notation please. 69 at ai5 is not valid, and f7 already =8, for instance, in this grid.

Best Regards, Alfred.

Thanks Alfred I posted my solution for another day.
Try this one.
27 8@de1=>i1<>8 3@c78=>ab9<>3
f9=7=>i9=3=>{c7=3=>,i3=8=>i6=1=>f4=1=>f5=2&b6=3=>a1=3=>b1=2=>c5=2}=>f9 <>7
29 3@c78=>b7<>3
