Your use of the prepositions is fine, but your paragraph needs some correction to the punctuation:
I work at night and sleep in the morning. I wake up at noon and go out in the afternoon. I have dinner at 7 and watch movies at 10.

I adjust my new watch to display my birthday on 20 Aug, to warn me of my birthday.

I have pinhole burns on my hands which makes it hard to play cards at the weekends.

You also need a comma after 'hands'.

Dear Beesnees,

I was very happy(can I write: I was very glad??) when I saw you regarded the note.
Thanks for your patience and the points you warned me OF .

It is an excellent opportunity for us to learn from a nice teacher.
In our language we say: khoda hefzet kone which means:god survives you or be with you
but I don"t know how to tell this in English.
sincerely yours

Hello Masmori,

You could use 'glad' as well as 'happy' in your sentence.
You don't need 'them' at the end of your second line. Regardless of what you might have have heard regarding a rule about not ending a sentence with a preposition, it is possible to do so.

'God be with you' seems to be an acceptable English alternative to your phrase.
