Get on and do what you want and give him the option to go.

I agree with joy, he has changed, not you, you say. You want to do stuff. Then do it and give him the option of yay or nay, after a few fabulous outings he will see what he is missing.

Depression maybe? Lack of finances to do things? Is this a sudden change?

Does he do a physical job all week?

My DH has to have a bit of downtime physically at the weekend otherwise he gets literally exhausted, full of aches and pains and very cranky. He does a very tough physical job all week so it's something i have to suck up to an extent.

yes has physical job and know he works v hard. he uses to stuffer with depression so hope not returning. think money is bit of worry atm but then he was happy to spend a fortune on something he enjoys which is cooking

Maybe he's just going through a bit of a phase of wanting to hibernate for a while. Darker nights, chillier weather does affect some people like that. And if he's still enjoying cooking, at least he's doing something he enjoys which doesn't suggest depression.

Don't let his desire to hibernate affect what YOU do though.
