Can Anyone Help - UPDATE

Hi Peeps thanks for your comments and a massive thanks to  ahlers5 this was the blog not sure how you found it as it didnt show when i hoovered over it but all fixed. 
Thanks for anyone else having this problem checkout the comments on this post

Hi folks I keep getting a site on my blog roll which is really not a very nice one well I am not  prude but this is not what I signed up for when crafting. The site is not on my followers list so can not delete from the roll does anyone else know how i can remove. Let us say that I wouldnt like anyone under the age of 18 seeing this. It is not a english speaking site from the little that is on the roll I have not even gone to the site.
Any advice would be helpful as I would hate for anyone to think this was what i called crafting
