It sounds as if your husband is a bit lost and doesn't know what to do with himself now that he's not busy with work all day. Maybe you should encourage him to take up some volunteering work or, better still, find some charitable work that you can do together. There will still be plenty of time for holidays and days out.
You're being rather tough on your husband. Maybe he's feeling the same way about you, and now that you are spending so much time together he's discovered that you're very critical and a bit of a nag, which is dragging him down. Instead of finding things to moan about, why don't YOU take the initiative and start planning some trips, then see what he thinks? If you're on his back all the time, then going away with you is probably the last thing on his mind.

I don't think you have adapted well to retirement, as in your head it seems to involve you being at home by yourself without your husband under your feet. Give the guy a break!
