Every few days I look in on my mother, who is, at 80, quite frail, but fiercely independent. Recently she's been getting bouts of complete paranoia. She is convinced the neighbours are spying on her through holes they've bored in the walls. The other day she refused to let me in, accusing me of stealing from her purse. She won't talk to me on the phone and has been spreading rumours that I've hit her. Her doctor has tried to get a nurse to see her, but she just slams the door in her face. Is there anything I can do?
Yours sincerely, Angie

Tartan is a fabric usually associated with Scotland rather than Gateshead. Until now, that is. Staff at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art will bring a taste of the Highlands further south by wearing tailor-made tartan outfits till the end of March. And it's all in the name of art. Ninety members of staff, from front of house to office staff and directors, will be kitted out in unique tartan ensembles as part of the Italian artist Antonio Riello's B Square! project, which first launched two years ago in Austria.
