A day ago, in the wee small hours I was woken up by a shrill ring that brutally interrupted my blissful slumber. As it turned out later the caller had dialed wrong. Incidentally, the rest of the night I didn’t sleep a wink. The next day I felt weary, sleepy, and grumpy cursing myself for not switching off the phone the night before.

A day ago, in the wee small hours I was woken up(awoken) by a shrill ring that brutally interrupted my blissful slumber. As it turned out later the caller had dialed wrong. Incidentally, the rest of the night I didn’t sleep a wink. The next day I felt weary, sleepy, and grumpy cursing myself for not switching off the phone the night before.  

You continue to impress me my friend.    wee hours is enough if they are wee they are small. wee small is redundant.       I was woken up is fine.( I was awoken by) sounds fine also and is more formal agreeing with the rather formal tone of this writing. Either are OK.

again a great job. Very good use of vocabulary, Victor

Thanks, Mike, for the encouraging words. As to the "wee//small", I simply forgot to cross one of them...

Have a nice year !!!

A day ago, in the wee small hours I was woken up by a shrill ring that brutally interrupted my blissful slumber. As it turned out later the caller had dialed (the) wrong (number). Incidentally, the rest of the night I didn’t sleep a wink. The next day I felt weary, sleepy, and grumpy cursing myself for not switching off the phone the night before.

Excellent work. The two words in brackets are a suggestion that I think make it sound a little more like how we would write it.

Good luck
