Giving new life to D40 - need lens rec's

I have access to an old D40 that isn't being used from someone. It currently only has the kit zoom and a long tele. My main camera is an RX100, but it lacks DOF control (bg blur) and wide angles (<24mm).

Would it be worth getting some new lenses for the D40, even thought it's a dated body? I was considering a 35mm, not sure what else is worth getting.

Want: Gain more creative freedom with DOF control, practice shooting

Don't want: Anything too expensive, I prob won't be using this camera around because I don't like the bulk of a DSLR. I have no desire to upgrade to a new DSLR body.
