Maple, you can refer to a two-week period, or a two-week holiday, but not "in two-week time."

I believe it's "two weeks' time"..in Britain. However, in the US it's more common to just say "in two weeks". My public radio station broadcasts the BBC every night and it drives me crazy when they add "time" to every statement of time. It's redundant!!! "Two weeks" is a measure of time, so the Brits DON'T need to add "time" every instance that they mention a period of time.
