Everything else looks fine to me.
as for a +12v feed, i ran mine from the starter or you could run it from the LHS of the fuse box, just be careful you dont overload the existing wire if its old etc
Edit: most automotive relays should be wired like this:

the fuse box and the wiring to it aren't up to powering anything else
are you switching the spot lamps from the main beam ?

Its not the power supply you want from that, take the power supply from the starter solenoid then:
fog lights: you can feed the switch from either the light switch or the fuse box. Beware if the light switch fails, you cant use the fogs as emergency lamps, so you'd better feeding the switch from th ignition live.
Driving lamps: they must came on only with high meam to be road legal, so you need to feed the switch from the high beam switch.

My preference is to fit an earth bolt to each inner wing, near the front (not much room on the radiator side but it can be done), and take all the left lights to the left earth via seperate wires and ring terminals, similarly for the right, so that if any one thing breaks, at least half of your lights stay on.

Much better solution as the spots that earth through the bracket can have issues due the corrosion happening there..
