Last weekend I got the 40 Project off to a nice start by completing the most straight-forward (and traditionally present-like) of the cards: "£50 to spend at Superdry".

We popped into our local store while we were in town and I ended up looking like this:
I also took the opportunity to start another card, namely the 40 Feet photo project. One "Excuse me, this is a rather strange request but can I take a quick photo of your feet?" later and I had the first of 40 photographs for the sub-project:
