Pretty much the same here.
Have lazy jacks to make it easier.
Sail close hauled, then drop the traveller, ease sheet so sail fully luffs, release the kicker
, snug up the topping lift, then do the reefing bit.
As lines all led aft (except topping lift) it works out pretty well, and this is single handing. Mind you, took me a few attempts to get it all together
I found that being able to lift the boom slightly on the topping lift makes it a lot easier for the main to drop.
