Moaning my 156 is not idling properly!

First, a big hello to everyone out there!!!!

My problem is my 156 2.0l
It isnt idling properly, like when I first turn it on the engine idles fast, bout 1200 then only drops to around 900. Also, when I am driving and pull up and stop; it drops the revs way way low as if its gonna cut out, then the engine idles up and down,hunting. It does this hot and cold, so I wondered what the heck is goin on!
I love my alfa, but I haven't got loads of money to throw at her, so any help would be appreciated.
Its an s reg, with only 103k on the clock, the heads were reskimmed belts done etc at 89k.
