Thank you, powered. (And then I nearly wrote [bush] which might have shown a rather different emoticon than I'd anticipated! )
Thank you powered.
"I will go in three weeks" and "I will go in three weeks' time" are correct.
Thank you - that's what I thought but got wobbly as I'm the only pedant one of my friends who's obsessive about grammar So what about "in three weeks" - do you assume the word time and therefore write "in three weeks' " ?
Yes - one week's time, two weeks' time.
I would say "one week's time" as the time is belonging to the week

I think the former is correct but I'm not sure, can another pedant please advise?Thanking you kindly.
