She was born in 1978.
I will see you later.
There was a storm during the night.

We waited all day.
They have lived here since 2004.
We will be on holiday from 1 July until 3 August.

We sometimes went to work by car.

Would U please help
Are these sentences grammatically well formed?
Up until then I thought I was very clever, but......
Before that time I had not seen him . 

Yes, both of those sentences are well formed. It's more common to say something like 'I hadn't seen him before then' and 'Up till then I thought I was very clever', but there's nothing wrong with your sentences.
