Is it possible to put it like that or is it typical of spoken English only and in written English only 'My friends anf I possible'?

Yes, if "me" is used as an objective personal pronoun, for instance, like: "Martha gave the money to me and my friends."


"Me and my friends" is not grammatically correct. "Me" is not a subject.

Correct form is like you wrote: "my friends and I".

    Without any additional context how can you be so sure? Commented Dec 27, 2021 at 19:29

    There's a gradual shift in what is held acceptable with questions of case. Pullum, for instance, said long ago something like "If there's a ring at the door and when you ask 'Who is it?' the visitor answers 'It is I,' don't let them in. It's nobody you want to know." // However, it's considered better to close-vote duplicates on ELU than to answer them. Commented Dec 27, 2021 at 19:38
